  1. Alfa GTA
    I'm after buying a 3.2 engine to put in my 156 v6. Now I love my 2.5 but the engine has no service history although it seems strong but a little noisy at 98,000 miles. The 3.2 I've bought has been really well looked after, has similar mileage and looks cleaner. However I've heard from a few...
  2. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Planned to use the GTV for the commute to work today as a loosener before its MoT tomorrow. Never missed a beat in 5 years or so. Wouldn't start. Immobiliser issue. So took the Mundaneo, got home and a quick fiddle with a couple of fuses and an ECU reset - Boom! There she is, started on the...
  3. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Any inexpensive expansion boxes people use before Plenum to increase the pleasant induction warble? - I am assuming mine has developed a leak which needs looking at, in the flexi. From inside car when under load at 2-3k revs there is a delightful DCOE guttural warble without the hiss of a sports...
  4. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Open to suggestions on best 'bang for buck' options of releasing the Busso character more fully - particularly within cab of well insulated GTVs Carbon air box looks a good bet, however not heard one and perhaps a little expensive for an empty box - I imagine this is however the best area to...
  5. Introduce Yourself
    Picked up my 07 Spider 3.2 Qtronic yesterday after a year in a flame spitting Nissan S14 200sx. Its very, very different, I love it. My family have all experienced Alfas over the years, my cousin in Portugal currently has 3 Alfa 33s the last time I checked. I've already picked up a couple...
  6. Alfa 164 & 166
    I have my friends 166 in my shed, and it needs some TLC. I am trying to find out the manufacture date. I seem to have hit a dead end deciphering the VIN. :confused: I have tried some of the decoders I found on line but they all say the tenth character (which is supposed to represent the year of...
  7. Alfa GTA
    A few weeks ago I was really worried as my driver-side headlight stopped working. Having read topics on here it sounded like a bit of a mission to work out what was going on so I decided I would take it to the garage next week. However.... Yesterday I was moving out of the driveway and turned...
  8. Alfa MiTo
    I really want to like the MiTO but those headlights......yuk! The front end reminds me of a recent cartoon character car, a one with big bug eye lights and a grill for a mouth, its relatively recent but just can't think of the name of the cartoon or film! Can anyone help?
  9. North East
    Spotted today in BMC, clutching a blue bottle of some dubious substance......WKD perhaps? :lol:
  10. Poll Room
    In the interests of equality, I would be interested to know who you think is the Sexiest Male Cartoon Character of All Time. Take your pick from the Hunks a'plenty.
  11. Poll Room
    Owing to my fondness for Betty Rubble, I thought I would put this out to the cognisenti of AO to decide, once and for all: Who is the Sexiest Female Cartoon Character of All Time? If choosing "Other" please specify and why.
  12. Poll Room
    Happened to see this one on TV this week with Yosemite Sam and Bugs Bunny. Priceless. Yosemite Sam is my favourite - his temper tantrums in here are great. So, delve back into the depths of your childhood and tell us your Looney Favourite. :D :D
  13. Poll Room
    Spill the beans, which Car character would you be and why? :D
  14. Poll Room
    which is your favourite? I like Chandler the best, hilarious bloke!
  15. Alfa 155
    I am just wondering a little about the engine character in my 155. I thought it would be a revvy little devil that will spin upp to 7000rpm very happily and give more power the higher the revs... Somehow this is not the case. Compared to a Peug Mi16 I used to own once, the Peug was litterally...
  16. Motoring Images
    I found this site on the Internet I thought it would be nice if we create ourselves as a South Park character... and post it here. :) You will have to Print Screen the image, it doesn't let you copy + paste. Here I am:
  17. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, No doubt some of you Selespeeders will have experienced some of the following: - Crunch going from 2nd to 1st doing anything over 15mph? Should you ever try to engage 1st while moving at all? I'm told there are no synchros..somethings. - 2nd to 3rd change is slow and "lurchy" - blinking...
