  1. Mufasa - A Good Bloke

    Alfa 164 & 166
    I've already thanked Mufasa (not his real name) privately but thought to do so publicly. Couple of weeks ago, the knob on my light switch broke off and came away in my hand. I posted here in case anyone could help me out with a source for a replacement of this little plastic part. Ro.. sorry...

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi guys. Some bloke in a red gqv was tailgating me on the m1 on my trip up to milton keynes a few days ago. It was about 3pm on saturday.

  6. A kind of half review of the 4C.. This bloke sat shotgun at Goodwood

    South Africa
    Sounds GOOD lads! Alfa Romeo 4C: a tonne of promise | Autocar “I swear to you,” says the animated Italian to my left: “even wet, it will weigh less than a tonne. The steering: manual (he means unassisted). Nothing between you and the car. But I’m sorry - I can’t tell you how much the carbon...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi there everyone. Great forum you have here. Lots of great info about some of the most attractive cars :) I'm currently researching my next car.

    Introduce Yourself
    Good Morning, After years of deliberation and playing it safe (mainly with the Germans) I finally succumbed to temptation and bought my first Alfa, a lovely little red number, a 156 2.0 JTS. Drove the little beauty home without any issues, gave her a thorough clean inside and out and had a...
  10. MiTo suspension explained by bloke who devised it

    Alfa MiTo
    Found this in Evo, they reviewed the Multiair in the same piece, but I found this interesting on the suspension side of it... Alfa's master of suspense Drive a recent Alfa Romeo, Fiat or Lancia and you will feel the hand of Philippe Krieff, suspension supremo. He is charged not only with...

  13. A top bloke.

    Alfa 33, Sud & Sprint
    Today, whilst changing my oil (3pmish), I noticed I had a blowing exhaust manifold, so in my wisdom decided to attempt to lower the manifold down clean the heads and manifold flanges and repair with high temp silicone sealant (cheaper than gaskets and alot more reliable). Well when i pulled the...

  15. What Sort Of Bloke Are You?

    Poll Room
    I spent some time wandering around an Alfa dealership this afternoon and came to the conclusion that I much prefer the 159 to the Brera or the Spider. I reckon that's because I'm a big saloon sort of bloke, what sort of bloke are you?
