  2. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    So I'm going to be putting coilovers onto my GT, as the OEM suspension is wrecked and this seems the best way to rectify that. I know that the general advice is to get Bilsteins or Koni's etc. but I don't have that kind of money to spend. So I'm currently looking at a max budget of about...
  3. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hello guys, After owning my 147 1.9jtdm (150HP) for almost 5 years now, I have to change it as I have moved to another country and I would either have to import it or get a new car so I chose the latter. After a lot of thinking and calculating I decided to go for another Alfa - this time 159...

    Choosing your own repairer. Hi, I was contacted recently by one of the clubs we work with. They were concerned about the issue of 'approved repairers' and they wanted to know what our insurer partners' stance would be. Clearly, most car club members wouldn't want just anyone repairing their...

  7. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    I want to upgrade my Brera speakers without changing my headunit (at the moment). I've been reading all AO threads about speaker replacement but isn't quite clear if what kind of speakers is best or fits. So, my initial thought is to get this set of Focal Auditor R-165S2 components: Focal...

Shortly I will be swapping the clutch in a 3liter gtv and should really be using a good torque wrench to be fastening everything back up afterwards. Now my conundrum looking through the manual and...
