  1. 147 Sport Q2, Brilliant!

    Introduce Yourself
    Should have bought one of these years ago! Purchased a red 147 Sport Q2 and what a rocket ship. Great low mileage 45,000miles 2007 car which is such a drivers car. It's early days but may be a an 147 convert. Must buy some smart car mats for it, any top tips from the Forum.
  2. Brilliant description of tbi engine operation

    South Africa
    For the techno junkies: Alfa Romeo 1750 TBi | Evo What this fails to explain is the bespoke optimisation of the "normal" k03 and k04 turbos used in the 159 and GQV respectively. Of particular interest is the last few paragraphs which explains the additional fuel squirt into the exhaust...
  3. breaking a brilliant blue FL 156

    Republic of Ireland
    Anyone breaking one? Looking for a front end. Any of the ones on partfinder are too far away.
  4. Brilliant investment, triple in value soon

    Alfa 33, Sud & Sprint
  5. Brilliant alternative to EPER for part numbers.

    General Alfa Discussion
    I discovered this site not long ago. It allows you to search for part numbers and see exploded diagrams of componets. It even has a search by chassis number. best of all, you don't get chucked off every 2 minutes when someone else tries to access it. It is not UK...
  6. Yestedays Auto Italia at Brooklands - Brilliant day

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Wow...what a brilliant day. Many alfa's attended along with Fiats, Lancia, but the other Italian exotica such as Ferrari, Lambo, and Masser had me drooling!! Let alone the cars, the venue is also excellent with car, bike, aeroplane and London transport exhibitions. If you missed it.........put...
  7. What a brilliant engine - 170hp MA

    Alfa Giulietta
    I know I'm preaching to the converted but isn't the 170hp MA engine just fantastic? When you drive your car every day you start taking certain things for granted. I travel often and drive rantal cars of various makes regularly. It really takes only one rental to make me realize what a...
  8. Free Sat Nav App.....and its brilliant.

    The Technology Section
    If anyone is interested, I have found a free Sat Nav app for the Blackberry. I use a Bold 9900 (cracking handset, best I've ever used) and wanted a "cheap" (read free) option for a sat nav. I use the phone on my bike as well as in the car. I've used "gokivo" 4 times now. Each time has been...
  9. GT. Brilliant tyres-and service for less

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    After discovering that square wheels were responsible for my noisy rear end(!) I went to see Lepsons of Gillingham - a specialist wheel and tyre warehouse. As it turns out that's rather underplaying it since they repair about 700 hundred wheels a week!! I had bought the car on new Goodyear F1's...
  10. These are brilliant

    Car Detailing
    Just finished my first ever Alfa G car wash...I was so excited about washing it. Such fun finding out where all the water runs are. I used to always use a leather to dry my cars but after reading about how it rubs the wax off I splashed out on one of the below. And it is amazing, the best...

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider

  12. Flocking brilliant - Transformed Phase 1 centre console

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Many threads have been the subject of how to restore tired phase 1 centre consoles. On the whole, most appear to remove the rubber covering and then paint in a colour of their choice. Normally Silver! But...there is another solution........Flocking! I have just recieved back my centre console...
  13. Brilliant Italian trip - musings...

    General Alfa Discussion
    Just thought I'd drop a note for anyone thinking of traveling to Italy. Just got back from 2 weeks in the South. Flew to Rome and had a fantastic 3.5 days doing the tourist thing. Stayed quite close to the Station which is where many of the cheaper places are. Try Aelius B&B, good price for...
  14. I think the soundtrack is brilliant for a 1.4

  16. Lepsons alloy wheel repair - Brilliant job!

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Should any of you be looking for someone to refurbish and straighten your alloys, you really can not go wrong with letting 'Lepsons' do the work. The transformation from scuffed and buckled to shiny new looking alloys, is simply amazing! and all for just £73! a really big:thumbs:
  17. Brilliant interview.

    Republic of Ireland
    NSFW due to the Irish "turn of phrase" as it were Watch this guy being interviewed, about the Irish situation, for the news in the states. His parting comment is an absolute classic.

  19. Another Brilliant year

    Announcements & Comments
    Well folks as 2009 draws to a close and I doubt I'll be in any fit state to compose a thankyou for 2009 thread tomorrow night I thought I'd do it tonight :D I would just like to thank every member who supported the Region Rep team this year by attending some of the fantastic events we held...
  20. My wife is brilliant

    General Alfa Discussion
    After the sad demise of my 146 :cry: last week we are down to just the 166 :(, said to my wife today "that it just isn't working with one car", I feel like a bloody taxi driver not all bad but keeps me away from beer :( She agreed we need another car, so starts the discussion as to what car, her...
