  3. Introduce Yourself
    Hi, just introducing myself as suggested... I'm an expat Brit living in France, and I've been driving Alfas and Lancias for nearly 30 years, including numerous Alfasuds in the 80s and six Lancia Themas including a Turbo which I tragically wrote off. My current main drive is a 2003 156 1.9 jtd...
  4. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello all, my SW is due her Belts, Waterpump and Variator soon. I phoned a Alfa specialist in Bury st Edmunds, I was quoted £525 all in, inc labour parts and vat. Is this a good price? It's for a 156 1.6 TS. I wonder if it would be cheaper sourcing the parts myself and just paying for labour...

  11. General Alfa Discussion
    If anyone can reccomend a good one I'd appreciate it, especially those that are good with cam belts, and the associated fallout of them going on a 147 (at idle so fingers crossed I might have some vales left). Thanks in advance. Rob
