  1. Pistonheads Stelvio QF UK lap challenge

    Alfa Stelvio Interesting reading. Driving my diesel Stelvio briskly I love how it feels and pivots through bends, would love a QF drive.
  2. Brake bleeding challenge

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hello all, So - having something of an unusual brake bleeding challenge, I've been unable to find anything similar as yet on the forum or via my old friend google. 96' Spider, with rear compensator (non-arm type) fitted. Essentially, I removed one of the brake lines from the rear compensator...
  3. Luxury car for £5k challenge

    General Motoring Discussion
    You have £5k to spend, and you've reached that time of life when a little treat is felt to be deserved. You've always hankered for something a bit luxurious, maybe with a bit of poke, but you've not fulfilled that ambition. Now's the time. So, ladies and gentlemen, please focus your...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi all, I know you guys like a challenge try this conundrum!: (2007 Spider) Waiting at junction to pull out when engine cut out for no apparent management lights nothing. Engine refused to restart. Imagine if you'd run out of fuel and that's just how it felt like despite 3/4 full...

  6. Vinyl challenge, help needed!

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    No this doesn't relate to my record collection and a warped copy of Depeche Mode's Speak & Spell that won't play. This is to do with vinly covering on the door pillar on my 156 which has bubbled up and needs replacing (see pics). Having clearly lived in a time warp for some time now I've found...

    General Motoring Discussion
    My bro bought a Zafira and it was a lemon. a couple years on he has, tonight, parked it by the side of the road with a ****ed gearbox. He's spent loads on it trying to solve issues (including the box). He's skint now. Totally. He's preparing for someone to offer to tow it and scrap it, and...

  10. Bank Holiday Challenge

    Alfa 164 & 166
    Still working through the new 166 to-do list - I thought this would be an easy one, but it turns out not... For some bizarre reason, the protective blue film has not been removed from the chrome-effect strip on the sill trims of my car. I was hoping the film would come off with a single...
  11. A different photo challenge

    Motoring Images
    This has everyone on Retro Rides stumped. The pic was taken in the 80s by a child in the back of a car who saw the big tall funny car coming past. It's believed to be a genuine picture. Nobody has ever seen one before and nobody can fathom why you would increase the body height of a Metro by...
  12. Your car photo challenge thread

    Motoring Images
    This is something I vaguely remember from another forum. The idea is that we post photos of our cars, not googled pics of any old motor :tut:, in places or with things near or on them specified by the previous winning poster. So for example I win by posting my car by a farm gate, I then say...
  13. The "V" challenge

    General Motoring Discussion
    The V engine fantasy challenge - let us assume your lottery winnings are safely in the bank and courtesy of the DVLA you have a 'few' "V" plates (I have V6 and my initials, that's what prompted this) What car are going to get for each of the plates? As an example; V5 - Golf V6 - GTA V8 -...
  14. Saturday challenge!

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Hi, I'm replacing my engine mountings in the hope that it would solve my knocking but after taking the old ones off I think I may have found the problem. The bottom bolt of the o/s mount had sheared off meaning the mount was only held onto the body by the top bolt, the mounts themselves seem...

    General Motoring Discussion
    I've just applied for a different role within my company for the next 8/12 months and, IF I'm lucky enough to get it, I'll be looking for a diesel. Requirements are simple:RELIABILITY, 45+mpg, good on snow and ice, max of 1K (can pay less and fix minor issues at indy garages). Bonus points for...
  16. Alfa Romeo Interesting Facts Challenge

    General Alfa Discussion
    Hi everyone. I'm wanting to have a poster made up and hang it up on the wall at my workshop for a bit of fun. I was thinking of something along the lines of '10 things you may not know about Alfa Romeo'. I was thinking if anyone could help me with some input on any interesting facts about Alfa...
  17. £100 Modification Challenge

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    A recreation of a thread that reached 50+ pages on another forum I frequented. Most of us would love to spend £1000+ on some 19" Prodrives, DPF/EGR and Remap and a Prodrive Exhaust, but for those of us who are on a tighter budget or already have these things, what can you do to improve you...

    General Motoring Discussion

  19. Cheap car challenge

    General Motoring Discussion
    A challenge for you. The car in the pic is an MG Z something. It's a V6 which means it has 180BHP and it's for sale for a measly 800 notes. The question is can you find anything with more poke for less wedge. Alternatively, can you think of anything with a better power-to-weight ratio for less...
