  1. Found a birds nest

    ICE & Blue&Me
    Hi all, I found this lot behind my stereo in my 159: Can someone tell me: What the brown connectors are for (the disconnected ones)? What is the black box for? Is this remnants of blue and me? Whats the multicoloured connector? Original or aftermarket? Do the steering wheel controls have...
  2. Quadrifolio, birds style..

    Alfa Giulietta
    Just where the badge should be! Danged birds
  3. Best protection against birds muck?

    Car Detailing
    I'm growing increasingly frustrated and annoyed at the damage that is occurring to my paintwork. My car is Rosso Red. I clean it regularly, and use Autoglym SRP followed by EGP. However on several occasions lately a bird has left it's calling card on my paint and by the time I get to it the...
  4. Temporary Protection from Birds

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi all, just looking for some thoughts: I park on a road leading to a dead end and there are typically 4 parking spots. Two of these are under a tree where birds like to sit and do their business on the cars underneath, and two spaces are free from the tree. I usually (due to my working hours)...
  5. Birds Love Alfa MiTo's !

    General Alfa Discussion
    But it's NOT what you're thinking..........the other day I was surprised to see a Robin darting inside my MiTo's front grille just below the Alfa badge. I watched for several minutes as the little red-breasted bird flew in with leaves and other foliage in its beak. On closer inspection, the...
  6. The Birds!!!

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    My car was headbutted today by a psycho pheasant that must have been doing 90mph - who knew they could run THAT fast ...?! It exploded in an impressive cloud of feathers and I thought nothing more until I later spotted that the false vent cover on the nearside was missing. Found it in bits in...
  7. A small flock of birds under the bonet!

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Morning all, I am new to this forum lark so please bear with me! I have just bought my 3rd Alfa 147 (yes, well and truly addicted!). This one is a 2002 147 JTD 8v, as soon as I bought it I took it to my local garage to get it serviced and have a timing belt kit fitted. When it went in to the...

  9. Birds and my new Cloverleaf

    Alfa MiTo
    Since I got my Alfa red Cloverleaf last Friday, every day has seen some flying rat leaving it's calling card on my car, mainly the bonnet. I never had this with my silver Corolla, is it the colour that attracts them?
  10. Birds do it.....

    Do you think that, once this scene has run its natural course and little storks arrive, the parents tell the littlies that humans brought them?:)
  11. Bloody birds.

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    So I found my car had been defecated on by what must have been a flock of birds with chronic bowl problems. Unfortunately in my haste to remove the muck I've taken the sheen off the pain on my Alfa. Nothing bad just a dull fade where there once was shine. Any recommendations as to how to make...
  12. birds and bonnets don't mix

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    My wife was driving her 156 down a lane in Cheshire when a bird flew into the bonnet causing some buckling (didn't know there were any ostrich farms nearby !) Does anyone have any suggestions for where to go to get it beaten out/resprayed in the Cheshire area ?
  13. Do birds sh*t on the hoods - and if they do what's the best way to clean it off

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Looks like a random Emu chose to crap on my hood last night - 1st time in 11 months of ownership. Other than water what's the best way to clean it off properly ?

    New camera lens, trip to Cornwall, some fairly tame birds and the sunniest day of the wettest week ever!!!
  15. Birds [email protected] on cars thinking it's water ?

    General Alfa Discussion
    Has anyone else heard the story about Birds crapping on cars thinking it's water (colour & reflection). I'm sure I heard this said before & wondered whether it was true ? If you think about it your car surface is small area and yet how often did birds hit it ? I bet the rest of your drive...
  16. Saw some beautiful birds....

    Motoring Images
    OK now I've got your attention, I'm afraid they were of the feathered variety :p I took my mum and neice to a barn owl sanctuary where they got to handle and fly a Barn Owl, a European Eagle Owl and a pair of Harris Hawks. All were rescue birds and absolutely beautiful and I managed to get...
  17. What kinda Birds do you go for

    Poll Room
    For me its the Barn Swallow - now please :tut: I just love the way they seem to love flying and perform aerobatics in the sky ( probably trying to eat flies etc) but they look nice. Pity they seem to be declining in numbers - their arrival always heralded the start of summer. :cool:
  18. Birds of the Atlantic

    Motoring Images
    I couldn't let Christmas came without showing a new set of photos, could I? :o ;) I've made this today with my 20D + Tamron 200-400mm + 2x converter. Not the ideal set, because the converter doesn't allow sharp photos at full 400mm (800mm). 350mmx2 is the best. I hope you like them. :)...
