    1) finally ended all mobile phone deals with them. 2) planning on quitting broadband - went on website, logged into account. Planning on awkward, annoying call. Clear message that my account has closed. Funny, I rang them last week, signalling, but v much not actually cancelling. Result...

    Hello Freesat. That's UK Freesat, and not the embarrassing Irish version. I got a Humax satellite receiver/Freetime/HDR from eBay and configured a Raspberry Pi as a VPN gateway for the catchup services. The biggest downside is that we have to switch the TV source to the Irish version of...

    Following getting the Stelvio, the Kuga has seemed excessive as a second car so it’s going to be replaced by a Toyota IQ. I’ve always liked the look of them , especially in pearl white but they stopped them in 2013. I’ve found a 34,000 mile one a Toyota dealers and we collect it next week. It...
  4. Alfa MiTo
    It is with sadness that today I traded in my alfa mito 155bhp on a 09 plate. She had 83500 miles on her and it all the years had nothing more that a shock coil and 3 new tyres. She passed the mot end of march with only a new tyre needed. I was starting to get warning signs and decided the time...

    I am sadly getting rid of my Spider after 7 and half years as my daily driver. I will really miss her. I will be her trading in for a Giulia Veloce, I fancy something completely different and hopefully picking the new girl this Friday afternoon.
  6. Alfa MiTo
    Hi all had a little incident in my Twin-air Sprint, when someone pulled out and drove into the side of me damaging the front wing and pretty much wreaking the whole passenger side suspension/steering, which led to the car being classed as a total loss (the total repair bill was just north of...
  7. Alfa MiTo
    It was with a heavy heart that after nearly five years i had to let my lovely gt 3.2 v6 go,it was quite a wrench but it had got to the point where i was hardly using it,which was ok in a way but i allready have a classic mini that fits that role,and with the cost of keeping her on the road she...

  9. Alfa Giulietta
    Afternoon guys & gals, Have owned my 2013 Giulietta for a little over 14 months now & due to a new work car on its way I am having to sell her. The car has been excellent & great fun to drive & she will be missed. Am advertising the car on a couple of sites & if anyone on here might be...
  10. Introduce Yourself
    Against others' advice and on pure looks I have purchased an Alfa Romeo GT JTD Blackline. Having owned a Fiat Stilo for 10 years covered 142,000 trouble free miles I went ahead and bought an Alfa Diesel. The clutch is very heavy and I'm hoping to get tips on this and perhaps others in the future...

    Dumping it but need advice on best alternative box - Freesat or Freeview. SWMBO wants the PVR aspect as well. What is the best box and what is the GUI like compared to Sky. Next season I am going to the pub. It must be cheaper.
  13. Alfa 164 & 166
    7 years of joy with my Alfa 166 coming to an end,my old beauty stallion is on its final days . as well as needing a new cambelt and water pump it seems its suffering from a blown head gasket . little bits and bobs here and there too,thats why i decided to say good bye to her. meanwhile bought...
  14. Alfa Giulietta
    The MY2016 Veloce (replacing the GQV) seem to have lost the option of a carbon pack (the one which is fitted to the Launch Edition GQV) which would be a real shame as it really suits the car IMHO. However, being selfish for a moment it'll make my GQV with the pack be even more desirable ;-) It...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    After 10 years with my Bella, I have had to let her go, I just Couldnt afford to run her any more, the final nail was the dmf starting to fail, and then the glow plugs failing as well, Enough was enough, I just spent 900 pounds doing the cambelt and getting it through an mot, it's been fun...
  16. Alfa Giulietta
    Well - I thought it was about time I introduced myself to the Guilietta forum! Been on for a few years having started with a 147JTDM (140), then added a 159JTDM 2.4 SW (200) and enjoyed them both tremendously. The 147 was 'my' work(horse!) car and the 159 the Family car. Loved them...

    Nipped over to BLS in Lincoln to say cheerio this evening to Tom and Phil who are soon drawing down their shutter for the last time. Faultless service from them on our Alfas over the past 10 years. We are going to miss you guys....
  19. Alfa Giulietta
    Hi we have had our 2ltr 170 Giulietta Veloce for 4yrs now and it has been a great car to own and drive just done 43k happy miles . A few minor problems when we first got her but all quickly sorted via our dealer Autoworld. This has been my first ever Diesel car and I really like the low down...
  20. South Africa
    So after 3.5 years of awesome highs to shocking lows I have decided to let her go! Wish the new owner many happy miles. At least its going to an Alfisti. Will have one again in my life time as this was probably the best car I ever owned.
