    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider

  3. Brera headlight beam pattern

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    So my brera went for its MOT retest today and it seems to have lost the beam pattern on the drivers side headlight. I’ve double checked the bulb fitment, it’s definitely in the correct orientation. What could be causing the loss of beam pattern? Anyone got any ideas on a fix? I’m hoping...

  6. Full beam flap fail on 35w Xenons

    Alfa Giulia
    At last service the dealer noticed an error code on one headlamp unit - turns out the flap that opens for full beam (not a seperate bulb, just a flap that lets more light out) has failed. I hadn't noticed, as the lights are so damn bright anyway - best headlights I've had on any car. New...

    I'm just about to take mine for its not mandatory MoT but when checking round found both main beams not working (dips do); the warning light comes on and the relay (fitted them a few years ago) clicks, all fuses OK but when I checked the power out to the mains from the relay it was showing zero...
  13. dip beam relay location

    Alfa MiTo
    Hi Folks, I have a slight problem with my dip beam headlamps, like they have both stopped working. I don't believe in coincidences that both bulbs blow at the same time, so I recon its probably the relay, but I don't know where to look for it, I read somewhere it may be in the glovebox but all I...
  14. Headlight / main beam /giulietta

  16. Dipped beam bulbs question

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi, I'm not sure if I put it in the correct board.. It's getting dark early now and I noticed my headlights are doing a rather poor job illuminating the road. I was wondering what bulbs do you have in your dipped beams? I checked a thread from 2012 where some of you recommended Philips bulbs...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Since upgrading to HID, the Blue&me media (MP3) turns on when even dip beam is selected either manually of in auto. It turns on even of the radio is off on on radio. The HID are wired into the battery if that makes a difference and the CD is in the player. Any ideas? It's not really a...
  19. Xenon conversion of long beam on a Giulietta

    Tuning & Upgrades
    I hope I post this in the right section... Although I love so many things about my GQV the long beam does not make that list. They suck donkey b***s! There are bicycles with more adequate front lights than the Giulietta. In my native Sweden the natural solution to these issues is extra...
