bit

  1. Interesting but a bit beyond my capabilities...

    Tuning & Upgrades
    I was messing about with a spare Subaru engine and found something interesting, though not terribly useful to me (I don't have the expertise and really want to stick to a Busso anyway). Below shows a picture of a Subaru 3.0 H6 24v engine. So what. But look closely at what's attached to the...
  2. Oh dear - bit moist

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    :titanic: https://www.warringtonguardian.co.uk/news/17805948.flood-alert-issued-along-sankey-canal-warrington/ One way to dispose of a troublesome 159 I suppose
  3. Bit early in the year..but

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Just gauging if any interest out in the community for my winter wheels. Although it seemed a good idea at the time, I've not used them (as I hibernate the Spider in the winter months). So I want to move them on and generate some funds towards the cam belt replacement later this year.
  4. Help requested. Where does this bit go?

    Alfa MiTo
    Hello, all. I wonder if you can help me. Two days after having my Mito valeted, I found this in the footwell. Can anyone tell me what it is, where it goes and what's not working at the moment because whatever it is isn't where it ought to be?
  5. Bit of cleaning tonight.......

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Shiny!
  6. VW a bit close to the media?

    General Motoring Discussion
    This weekend the boss of VW is acting editor of Bild , which is from the same stable as Auto Bild , the U.K. version of Autoexpress. I hadn’t noticed how they cancelled their Golden Steering Wheel contest. But it’s back for 2019...
  7. A little bit of schadenfreude. It certainly brightened up my day.

    General Motoring Discussion
    A bit different to the usual dashcam footage, this youtube channel has cameras trained on a very low bridge ( 3.5 metres / 11' 8" ). 141 accidents in about 10 years. I particularly like the highly agricultural braced steel girder protecting the bridge itself which is a very effective can...
  8. Where does this bit go? (somewhere in trunk)

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    We took apart my 159 sedan truck/boot to fix some stuff and then put everything back together... but now there is this one piece left over and I can't figure out where it goes! Anyone got any ideas?
  9. Gearshift a bit stiff

    Alfa MiTo
    In my TB 170 QV the gearshift to first or second gear (especially second) is a bit stiff and hard. It is worst when the gearbox is cold. No problem with any of the other gears And periodic, when shifting to second gear, it feels like the gearbox doesn't get fully into gear and jumps back to...
  10. Bit of "bling" for the interior.

    Alfa Stelvio
    Decided to add a bit of bling. :)
  11. Bit of a strange request here - anyone got a crashed headlight?

    Alfa Giulietta
    Before my ownership, someone changed the headlight bulbs. When taking out the old bulb, they pulled bulb holder along with the bulb. So I have nothing to seat the bulb into nor have the little wire arms to hold the bulb in - Just a hole. The bulb sits in for a short while then falls out and...
  12. A bit of a weird hood problem...

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    The story so far... I’ve had the Spider about 2 months now, the hood has gone from working most of the time to being intermittent and/or temperamental to refusing to open but closing fine. Then the cable from the motor to the passenger side clamshell lock broke. I replaced the cable today and...
  13. GTV boot swivel badge required (just the black bit that the badge is stuck to)

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi I hope this is clear - I need the black plastic circular piece with the pin that sticks out (the part that swivels). I have a replacement alfa badge ready to stick to it (my gtv has the brass coloured circular piece so I can't just replace the badge face). Does anyone have one knocking...
  14. Whats this bit called

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Bit of plastic on bottom of winscreen on both sides, Mine doest click in on either side?
  15. Quickie help please - what bit is this?

    Alfa MiTo
    Hi everyone, I've just carried out an oil change on my Mito Twin-air turbo 105bhp. In the process, I found a small leak. On closer inspection, it was coming from the top of the engine. I removed a couple of bolts from what I think is the source, and found a broken seal. Please can someone tell...
  16. A bit over enthusiastic

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    As the title suggests i think I've had a pull it bits moment. Ive been planning on detailing and tidying the engine bay up for ages, I've been squirrelling away all the bits i think ill need over the last couple of years. Coolant tank, side covers, split trunking, electrical wrap tape...
  17. A bit tlc today

    Alfa Giulietta
    Some claybar and hdwax
  18. My bit for tourism

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Always the end of May and can always be combined with a trip to the Alfa museum in Milan. https://petrolicious.com/articles/the-bergamo-historic-gran-prix-is-quintessential-city-circuit-racing Ciao tutti
  19. First bit of QF fettling tomorow

    Alfa Giulia
    Have booked my car in to give forum sponsor NJS Pershore's mapping skills a try tomorrow morning. Looking forward to the results, more to follow upon completion.
  20. A bit disappointed after driving Quadrifoglio

    Alfa Giulia
    This will probably be a bit controversial.... I test drove a Q this morning with the full intention of buying one but was a little disappointed. The car is very competent and does everything you would want in normal driving - refined, quiet, comfortable etc. There is also no arguing that it is...
