    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I've done a bit of a search and haven't seen anyone else with this problem:- The console gauges (oil/water temp and fuel in my Brera) all stopped working, more or less permanently.

  5. Regazzon centre exhaust - with or without silencer?

    Alfa Giulietta
    I own a 1750 QV petrol TCT Giulietta and wanted to look into upgrading the exhaust to obtain a raspier sound without the drone you can sometimes get travelling at high speeds (ex. On the motorway). Narrowed it down to a Regazzon centre exhaust replacement, but get the choice between one with a...
  6. Refurbing Phase 1 Centre Console

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Have read a few threads on refurbing the phase 1 centre console. It seems as though brake fluid seems to be the best option to remove the old sticky rubberized paint. If I do use brake fluid, will isopropyl alcohol wipes be enough to remove all traces of brake fluid to ensure that the new paint...

    Alfa MiTo
    I've recently brought a MiTo 1.4 Turbo 2011 and I'm changing the cambelt. I've assumed the piston nearest the cambelt is piston 1. I checked to make sure the mark on the crankcase pulley is TDC where the locking tool is install but piston 1 shows it more towards BDC. Is it common for the...
