  1. Dashboard language suddenly changed to Italian

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi my dashboard MFD has suddenly changed to Italiano and I can't figure out how to change it back to English. Every time I start the car and the pop up nav starts up it tells me theres going to be a language update but I press cancel. The nav screen stays English and Voice commands too the...
  2. DNA always defaults to N upon power up. Can this be changed?

    Alfa Giulia
    I rarely drive in any other mode than D. But every time I switch off and then power up, the selector is in its default N position. Can this be overridden so that the last used mode is remembered upon power up (in my case D)? I know it's a small detail, but would love to know if this is possible.
  3. Have you changed TS cf3 front exhaust with cf2 front exhaust

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi folks Tired of being quoted £300 to cut out and weld in a new flexi as new twin cat front exhaust doesn't exist anywhere. I know some have gone down the modding cf2 front exhaust route. Can you share please how and where this was done? Im in the Thames Valley. Many thanks.

    Alfa MiTo
    Thank You A O forum, reading a recent post about coolant loss i checked my header tank on my 2012 QV and it demonstrated all the symptoms of the failed unit, a brown "burnt" look on the top of the tank where the return pipe jets coolant back into the tank. I ordered a replacement from our...
  5. How does the brown master key work and can it be changed?

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    So, when my GTV came over from Japan it only had one red key with it, but not the brown master key. And I'd like a couple of spare keys. I do have the original 'key card' and got a couple of blanks cut to that as spares, I haven't been able to try them yet though so no idea if they work or not...

  7. Changed my exhaust - power loss?

    Alfa Giulietta
    I recently changed my 1.4 MA downpipe due to the old one being built improperly. I had a 76mm downpipe leading into a 63mm midpipe and then into the stock exhaust from the centre resonator. Car ran well, no issues. The downpipe broke off on a weld recently and I had a new pipe built. To save...

  11. Wiper Settings - can they be changed?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi all, Having moved from a Mito to a Brera one small but frustrating difference is starting to really bug me. In the Mito when you had the wipers on any setting, although most noticeable on constant, they would reduce frequency when you were stationary then revert from intermittent to...
  12. Anybody changed engine in a Brera? Interested in changing a 2.2 JTS to a 1.75TBI

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hello pals, It's has quite some time know that I am looking for a decent Brera (post 2008 model). I am looking for the 1.75TB...Sweet petrol and turbo sound! So far the ones I have seen are either too expensive or had issues (big crash/manipulated km). The question: Would it be possible to...
  13. Changed exhaust. Now problems

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi everyone first time posting. I recently changed my exhaust on my 2.0 159 diesel from a one pipe to two (looks better). Set up was quite simple. My problem is that now when I rev the car while parked it won't go past 3000rpm. However while driving the revs shoot past 3000rpm, (in gear and...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    OK has anyone changed them on a 2.4 210bhp? At the moment I'm going through a problem solving mission of a knock/tap sound.

  16. Left xenon stops working at times. Changed bulbs, changed ballasts. WTH?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    The lights are H7 (I think) non-factory. Four months ago my left light stopped working so I swapped both bulbs and it worked fine. Few days ago left light stopped working AGAIN, so the guy recommended plugging it to a different ballast and it worked. So I changed the ballast. The old ballast was...
  17. Changed the EGR valve today

    Alfa Giulietta
    This was a PITA, the circular gasket refuses to go into the barrel square and its all blind from the front of the engine. If you do this I would recommend not touching the gasket in the manifold and probably just replacing the valve. I also noticed that there was a coolant leak when the valve...

    Hi all, I took delivery of a new Veloce today and drove it home after part exchanging my old 2010 1.4 MA. After getting home im really not sure if I've made the right decision. I signed up to a PCP deal and as I say I part exchanged my old car. Any ideas what my options are? Is there any...
