  2. Just bought my first Alfa

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, I've just bought my first Alfa, a 2004 147 2.0 T Spark, does anyone know where I can get a new remote key from in the UK for a reasonable price, the car was very cheap but only has one key and it's not the remote one. Any help would be most appreciated.
  3. 9 years later I’ve bought one!

    Introduce Yourself
    So 9 years ago I joined this forum and posted about buying a GTV. However from memory I never went for the test drive and then a few years later a small being was born so my dream of owning an Alfa went on the back burner. But I’m back and with an Alfa! Today I swapped my boring reliable A to B...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I'm after putting KW2 coilovers on it that I bought from Autolusso. They were used but apparently in good condition. Now the car is failing for having a suspension imbalance on the front. There is an imbalance limit of 30%. Mine was 43%. It also says I have a worn wish bone. Could this be...

    Hi All I bought a 159 TBi - needed to replace my 156 only because of rust, she was a great car. The torque of the TBi in all gears was the attraction and it is great. However there have been issues, one of which I have already posted but just to go through all of them perhaps i can get some...

    Introduce Yourself
    Morning folks, I'm very pleased to have become an Alfa owner for the 1st time in 25 years of driving. I've been a petrol head since I could play, but have stayed a bit more mainstream with my car choices. I've always loved Alfa's but never committed to buying one. I've taken a bit of a life...

    Hi All I've had Alfa 33s and a 156 as my cars over the last 20 years. For some reason you can't get 156's anymore so I looked around for a new car. Now I own a 159 TBi - it's having a new timing belt and pump and a monster service changing all the oils but what else should I get done before...

  20. Can’t believe I’ve bought one

    Introduce Yourself
    Hi, never even considered an Alfa, but just bought a 2014 Giulietta 2.0 JTDM in 8C Red. Spent weeks finding a Mito for my son which we got last week, then this popped up in a Honda dealership nearby. Looks like this is what I’ll be driving down to Italy in September rather than my Volvo. I...
