  1. Does anyone tow a caravan with a 147 1.9?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I only ask the question because since the demise of my 2.4 156 Sportwagon, I don't have a tow car and wondered if my 147 16v 1,9TI would be up to the job?

  5. Caravan cleaner as a one of on my new love?

    General Alfa Discussion
    I picked up a 2002 156 TS, (in red of course) 12 days ago and today had the opportunity to give her, (yes I'm already that attached) a good clean. There is some very stubbon tree sap type stuff here and there that won't shift. I know caravan cleaner will get it off in a shot. The question is...

    I know the Max Tow on my 2009 Alfa 159 1.9 JTDM Lusso Saloon is 1500kg. However what is the actual kerb weight of the car. I am considering buying a Swift Caravan that has an unladen weight of 1283kg and a Max Permissible Weight of 1495kg. I am concerned whether this caravan is simply too...

    My lad races go karts at the weekend. We have a converted LDV Sherpa minibus that spends all month in the garage and just comes out for one weekend, not really economical with the car tax and insurance.
