  1. Alfa Giulietta
    My G will need front tyres when I finally get it back from dealers, it is the 1.4 MA veloce with 17’s on. Anyone recommend tyres that suit the set up of the car, looking for decent wet grip aswell as good ride and quiet. It currently has Michelin pilots fitted that still offer decent grip...
  2. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I replaced my back box with a standard one and since then it sounds more like a 2.0 than a 3.0! It had always had a blow before on the pipe joint to the output of the rear box. As this got a bit worse the car sounded amazing, it sounded like a rare 1960's Italian supercar. But then it blew...
  3. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Just wondering if there is a tried and tested clutch that will take 300bhp that people have tested on the c630 box? Also if the dual mass we have is good nick do we need to do the smf conversion? I've had a look around at a few clutches but they seem few and far in between that will take high...
  4. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, Am in the process of fitting new hub bushes to the 156 and think I need new trailing arms. I can move the mounting by hand! What brand should I buy, need good value as on a budget. I'm told they're one of the bushes that doesn't often need replacing so does it really matter what brand...
  5. Alfa Giulietta
    Hi Guys I've just traded my old 159JTDm in for a 2013 Giulietta 1.75 Cloverleaf (in 8C red :happy: ) and was hoping someone could offer some advice on a couple of things for me. First, I was hoping it was equipped with the TomTom Sat Nav port on the top of the dash, but unfortunately it isn't...
  6. Alfa MiTo
    Hi there, I'm looking at changing my rear brake pads and I was browsing EuroCarParts and it has thrown up two different choices of rear pads with different fitment details. How do I know which are the right ones? Will I have to go measure the current ones or what? Hopefully the attached...
  7. Alfa Giulia
    OK, the QV looks like its going to be the real deal, but at upwards of £60K it's not going to sell to the normal punter is it? So we are left with a couple of initial low powered options. I know it's very early days, but should we be worried that we are going to be left without a cooking engine...
  8. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hello, What's everybody using for clutch choice for there tuned alfas? I have a 159 2.4 200bhp
  9. Poll Room
    inspired by an Arsebook linky I get, I wondered if we would like a series of car choices. I'd be very happy to take suggestions in the Cool Wall thread a la "car choices........", and I'll see if this has legs. Would it be better if it was a 2-car choice, or a 3-car "Giant test" like Car...
  10. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Eyeing up parts for an upcoming job, and trying to decide on what to go with.. I'm not fussed over drilled/goved/dimlped/ribber-for-her-pleasure discs, as I'm never going to take this car on a track - I want good quality OEM or equivalent discs. Would rather save a bit of money on plain discs...
  11. The Classic Alfa Romeos
    I'm looking for a set of second hand wheels and was wondering what other makes of cars share the same wheel fitting. I have been told old ford wheels mat match. looking for some minilite style wheels. Thanks
  12. Engines (TS, JTS, JTD & V6)
    So I bought a 1.9 JTD GT about 4 months ago and about 3 months before that the previous owner had had a clutch and DMF fitted (invoices to prove). Now I'm starting to get the characteristic noises of a failing Dual mass which even with hard driving should not be failing all ready especially at...
  13. The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Unsurprisingly the Hellebore on my 1750 has split so needs replacing/refurbing. Choices: - Replace with Classic Alfa repro item. - Get a Nardi or Momo Prototipo and have the original Hellebore refurbed so I can reuse this at some point in the future. Two questions: - Has anyone used or seen...
  14. Alfa Giulietta
    So it looks like I might be snaring a QV on a pretty good late month/quarter deal. Only tough decision is that my colour choices (due to what's available by end of month) are Luna Pearl, White and Etna Black. Having test driven a QV this weekend to confirm what I already knew (I.e. that I want...
  15. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Looked at a few spiders. One is a low mileage 57 plate 2.4 (200 bhp) version with very low mileage. Apart from the obvious 10 bhp, what are the changes/improvements introduced when they went to the 210 version?
  16. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Just curious at what is out there hybrid turbo wise for the 1.9jtd that will fit the GT and the 156/147. I am not talking about huge turbo's to blow the doors off, but something on par with oem's low rev power delivery with better flow characteristics than the oem unit. I know other factors are...
  17. Alfa Giulietta
    It was between this and going a different route + adding 20 mins to our journey (which also meant turning up late to the in-laws on Christmas Day). Safe to say...our food was cold when we got there ;) I would never have subjected the precious to this torment! :lol:
  18. Poll Room
    I do a lot of miles - up to 1000 a week, so it's got to be reasonably economical. I'm getting around 40mpg from my 156 2.4 JTD, so close that would be good, however I can afford to go a tad lower. It's got to be at least as big as the 156, the bigger the better really. I've narrowed it down to...
  19. Alfa Giulietta
    Time is approaching for 2 new fronts, and the tyres on there have lasted well (19k and counting), but without being too blunt they're crap (Pirelli P6000). I am after something bothy grippy and quiet - the P6000 are understeery and noisy. RomeoRaider gave a big thumbs to the Vredestein Ultratac...
  20. South Africa
    Ok so the Ti's are in for repair and I need to decide on a color. I did the black thing with the white calipers and it really looked cool, I liked it, but black is so popular and I don't like doing what others do. Any options? I need to know by today! Calipers are at the spray shop receiving...
