  1. Alfa Giulietta
    Hello everyone, So the previous owner did not much care about the leather seats and they now have small cracks here and there, as well as some color chipping off. To be worse, they are the bright red leather type. Can anyone recommend a good (but also cheap :D) leather care products as well as...

    I think this is worth sharing as so often the feedback about Alfa dealers is overwhelmingly negative. Two months ago, I bought an eighteen month old Giulia Veloce from Westover Group in Christchurch. At that stage they'd only been an Alfa dealer for eight weeks, having expanded from being just...
  4. Alfa Giulietta
    Hi all, When I purchased my Giulietta (150 MA) earlier this year I was a bit reluctant to purchase the 3 year 27,0000 mile service plan as the price was £499, I thought it was a bit steep especially when previously I paid the £100 less for the same plan for my Renegade (1.4 MA) with the same...

    I feel like I shouldn't be telling people just yet in case something falls through, but I can't help it. After searching for many months for a replacement for my trusty(?) Evo IX, my hunt is finally at an end. I've had a few niggly issues with my car this year, but it's sort of expected with it...

    Hi alfa owners, I recently got an amazing Giulietta Veloce gray matt, its my first alfa and im pretty happy with it. Im kind of worried becase the painting looks amazing and i would like to keep it that way, so as time goes by, the sun, dust, or weather will start to do their job and the...

    It appears from a number of posts both here and on other forums that the promises of Alfa Top Care for Quadrifoglio owners are not being upheld (namely immediate replacement car in the case of a breakdown). I've also not been able to find out what exactly Alfa Top Care provides. I'm going on a...
  8. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Popped in to have the GT looked at the usual stuff service, tyres checked etc. Once again the service provided by NED and his staff is exceptional. I've been here a few hours and all the customers have had positive things to say about the services provided. I had a few questions about the...

    Is there any conditioner or anything to renovate these handles? It's starting to look a bit rough. Any solutions?
  10. Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Circumstances at work means that I'll have no job very soon and therefore I must sell my beloved Alfa to fund my LGV licence :furious: I'm absolutely gutted because of this, sadly I'll have to downgrade to something cheap and economical for 6-12 months until I get myself sorted :depressed: I...

  12. Car Detailing
    Hi All Am I correct in saying best to use leather wipes or a spray to avoid the tiny pinholes in leather seats from getting clogged? Used one of the Meguairs Gold Class Leather products and although the result was great found some areas of pinholes blocked with residual cream. Thanks

    Our 20v - and this green and pleasant land's grey and unpleasant roads - have just knocked out a Mehle droplink in six months. I was ever so pleased when the knocking started to develop and I had to fork out more readies for replacements prior to returning it under warranty . . . but. There's...

    Sorry if this is in the wrong place, posted in the meets section too, its just there is more traffic here. I saw on Facebook Midlands car care hosted a Focus RS OC meet last month. Wondered if anybody fancied an Alfa meet there? Its J9 M6 btw. Midlands car care is a detailing/tuning place so...

    I saw on Facebook Midlands car care hosted a Focus RS OC meet last month. Wondered if anybody fancied an Alfa meet there? Midlands car care is a detailing/tuning place so we could get car cleaning advice, demonstrations and he also has a shop selling products. What do people think? Dan

  20. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Would any of you Pommies mind exporting a few busso Spiders to the Great Land? ;) Sadly they are far too hard to find over here! :( Seems only the 946 spiders are available with the 3.2 which I don't like as much as the beautiful 916 busso's! So please someone bring a couple over here for me...
