    Just cancelled my Giulia order and got my deposit back from the dealer after 5 months waiting without any update...Thames motors did their best to keep my happy and ARUK are as if in mission to bring Alfa sales to zero by 2020. Sad
  3. Alfa 164 & 166
    Hello! Got blinking injection light but car runs fine. A bit rough when idling tough. A while back the heater matrix was swapped since it was leaking and maybe some part of the cable loom was pinched/damaged. It runs in the same neighbourhood as the parts that was removed in order to get the...

  6. Alfa 164 & 166
    .....because you were right and I was wrong. I stand by my opinion that the 166 is a compromised car that could be so much better, but, I do miss my old Super. Yes, after only 1 Alfa, I'm victim to that feeling, of being somehow snagged by something you can't put your finger on, but it keeps...

Anyway, I now need a driver headlight but mine are HID's/Xenon. I don't suppose anybody's got one kicking around or is breaking a GT?
  8. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    So I'm at the end of a 100 mile trip when the oil pressure lamp "blinks" when accelerating from a full stop on a rather steep incline. Just to be safe I pull in to a gas station where I purchase a quart of oil which I subsequently pour in to the engine (where it's supposed to go). I also...

    A friend signed up to do a charity sky dive with then, then gets details to say that the first £400 raised will go towards the sky dive, and the next £150 raised she will get as a gift voucher to spend as she pleases. How is this even legal?
  10. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I was was replacing the head unit, I wired it all up and it worked. So I slot it into the dash. Now I seem to have lost: Electric windows, boot, mirrors, radio, air conditioning, alarm? (well the car locks, but it doesn't beep any more) The filler cap still opens though. I'm going to check...
  11. Engines (TS, JTS, JTD & V6)
    I have owned 4 different Alfa petrol engines, 1.8 TS, 2.5 V6, 2.2 GM and currently running a 3.2 GM V6, I must admit...... I'm really missing my old Busso V6 :cry: Although the Brera V6 is slightly quicker than the 2.5, it's missing it's special factor, I have always wished I had owned a 156...
  12. Alfa Giulietta
    SO. As I was approaching a post milestone and just spent 540 miles in the car the last two days I thought I would ask a big question that has been troubling me for some time. Why does Dynamic mode bring up a bunch of grapes on the dashboard? :confused::cheese: Apparently on a sunny day, with...

    Just been nosing round the boot of my car (was bored..) and came across a bunch of cables going into a black connecting terminal on the metal cradle where the boot light is, does anyone know what its for? I didnt take the cradle off, but it felt like a couple of the wires peeled off for the...
