  1. Current factory build times...

    Alfa Giulia
    After faffing about for ages, we've decided to trade in our Giulietta for a Giulia Veloce. Can't find anything in stock or even ex-demo in the colour and packs we want. So it might be a factory order, but we've been quoted up to 14 weeks. Does anyone have any insight into current real-life...
  2. Spider Build Location

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    We're heading off to Italy in our 2001 Spider at the end of next week and, as part of the reason is for its 18th birthday, I'm looking to try and get a photo outside the factory that it was built at. I've used ePer to find the build date, 2001-02-26, which I understand is after production moved...
  3. Build dates

    Alfa Giulia
    I've been given a build date for my Veloce week commencing 20th May and a delivery to dealer date of Friday 12th July. That's 8 weeks post build lead time excluding dealer prep. That's about a month longer that the Super I ordered back in 2017. Is this normal now?
  4. Complete novice fast road engine build, help please!

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Hi all, I thought I’d start a separate engine thread as I’m rebuilding the engine from the GTV. The engine had been rebuilt by the PO, (camshafts are marked up) compression was good but the few times I had it running it was pretty rough. This was undiagnosed but I wanted to check everything...
  5. A request for those running 295 tyres to post the build date of their cars

    Alfa Giulia
    Quite a few people have fitted the 295 Michelin PS4S tyres to their cars, and some are reporting rubbing while others say there is no issue. It would be very helpful if those with the 295 tyres could share their build dates and whether or not they have had any issues with rubbing? This way we...

  7. Prodrive build number?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I'm thinking of finally selling one of my 2.2 Breras next month but I can't work out where Prodrive hid the build number. I've managed to loose some of the original paperwork or maybe never received it when I bought it six years ago. I doubt it's mega important but it would be nice to know. Any...

  11. 156 Build Information

    General Alfa Discussion
    Is there anywhere I can find out the build information for my car? With my Ford Ka, I can enter the registration number into Ford ETIS and it lists when the car was built, what options it had, where it was built etc etc

    Introduce Yourself
    Hi there, I'm Alan. I live in Lincolnshire and have just bought a 98 GTV which needs an engine rebuild. Some metal must have dropped in the oil pump as it has been damaged and not within limits. I am new to this site and was wondering whether anyone has a good pump to buy. I hope to get it...

  16. The G build quality makes me sad

    Alfa Giulietta
    I am really trying to like my Giulietta, but when the gear knob top falls off in my hand, and the fan starts emitting a whirring sound like there is a piece of paper stuck in it and the beautiful Giulietta badge so lovingly designed is stuck on skew by some monkey at the factory and the...

  19. Condensation build up.....

    Alfa MiTo
    We are now approaching the first winter I have owned my Mito 155. I am rapidly starting to notice an extreme build up of condensation in the morning. The back quarter windows are permanently steamed up and almost look a bit "wet" as well. The fronts inc windscreen are a little better, but as...
