    Hello my fellow alfa obsessives...! Many apologies for my self enforced absence from the forum, but unfortunately we suffered a death in the family and it turned my world upside down :( and if that wasn't enough my poor wife forgot to put the handbrake on her ( actually, I let her THINK its...
  3. Captain, we have Coolant Leak... Please Help!

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, I'll get to the Selespeed issues next time, but for now my main concern is this recent leak... Noticed it yesterday for the first time, coolant level in the reservoir is sitting near empty if car is hot or cold (maybe a cup of pinkish fluid in there?), but doesn't seem to be going...

  12. Am I Captain Slow?

    Alfa GTA
    I know it's dependent on the types of journey/roads etc, but I'm a little worried that I'm in danger of being landed with the crime of being SLOW IN CHARGE OF AN ALFA!!! Average mpg: 55.4 (I'm consistently > 55) Average "velocity": 38.4 :( And this is since the remap :eek: Maybe I need to...
