  1. Anybody know about the differences in petrol brands?

    General Motoring Discussion
    It's been a while since the last discussion on whether fuels differ between brands. There were some posts in the past by people in the industry who knew about how fuel is mixed for the petrol stations and why it costs more.

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Morning All, Got the whole job of plugging the intake manifold soon. What are the best brands of water pump and timing belt kits for these cars would you say? I am happy to just wait until Eurocarparts or Mister-Auto have a big sale and just make the most of it whilst they are on their sale...

    Hello folks, My 147 DC has hit 100K and as the timing belt and waterpump was done around 50K I'm looking to replace it soon. Does anyone have any recommendations on brands? Having a look on Eurocarparts and Mister Auto there's all sorts of brands, most I haven't heard of.. Any to avoid or go...
  7. Is there any downside to wide tires and are these brands any good?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Currently I'm running Continental ContiSport Contact tires on my 147, 245/45/17 in the front, and 245/50/17 in the back. The tire is pretty wide and I'm wondering if there are any big downsides to running a wider than usual tire. Obviously, other than the poorer turning radius. Also, are...

  10. To Mito owners!! Is service / maintenance for Mito far expensive than other brands?

    South Africa
    To Mito owners in South Africa, I would like to ask a question whether the regular service / maintenance on Mito is certainly more expensive than cars from other brands like Renault, Mazda, Hyundai, Toyota and Ford? I've heard that Alfa Romeos cost quite a lot when it comes to regular...
