    Morning All, Last night, in the depths of dark Suffolk, I hit a beast of a pothole at about 40mph. It was just wide enough for a tyre to go straight in, on the passenger side and camouflaged by other crappy bits of surface. I had an immediate blow out on the front, big hole 8n the side wall...

    My G went in for MOT, passed with flying colours, except for one advisory. Apparently there's a possible exhaust blow from the manifold area. The guy who did the MOT owns a G too, and said that he couldn't investigate further due to space limitations. He reckoned it could be a bit of a job to...

    In a fit of wild optimism - and because we need to check out the replacement gearbox in the race car - I've just booked for my mate and I to do an open-pit-lane trackday at Oulton on 17th January - for the princely sum of £99, plus £25 for an extra driver. This price will probably increase as...

    Hi guys, I'm almost buy an Alfa Romeo giulietta 1.6 jtd-m2 from 2011 and today I've done a test drive. I love the car and his handling but I'm a bit worried with a thing. I've noted that in the test drive with dynamic mode on, when I speed down and speed up again I have felt a strong knock ...

    The other day I was horsing down the M6 outside lane when a rear near side tyre decided to let go. I drive a Giulietta 2.0 litre JTDM-2, I managed to keep the car in a straight line then gradually moved over to the hard shoulder. I would love to say that I managed to get the car under control...

  14. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi all, I had my 2010 159 2.0 diesel MOT'd a month or so ago, and got an advisory that the exhaust was starting to show signs of serious corrosion. I trust the garage completely, so take it as read that the exhaust is indeed on the way out. What would be a ballpark figure for a replacement...

Lots of white smoke through the back and front, later stopped, worse is that...
