  1. Giulia collected yesterday

    Alfa Giulia
    Hi all Picked up a 2017 speciale yesterday. 2.2 180 hp Black Red leather Performance pack. Drove it back from the UK to Ireland, it really is a fantastic car. I had to get the dealer to change one of the wheel arch liners while I waited as it was cracked (seems common ) On the drive...
  2. GT Cloverleaf collected!

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Not long arrived home having just collected my GT Cloverleaf JTDm 170bhp. Great to be back in a GT again (had a JTD Lusso a few years ago), I'd forgotten just how much I love these things! I got a really good one but it has some small and simple bits and pieces that need doing which I knew about...

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider

  4. Collected new Spider TS - Overheating issues

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi all, Collected a Spider TS a couple of weeks back, and gradually learning its quirks, the most concerning of which is overheating. Haven't killed it yet, but a couple of concerning moments with build up. I've read through a few bits and pieces here, but thought I'd put everything down I've...

  6. Collected Sunday back at dealership Monday ?

    Alfa MiTo
    So, collected my Mito Cloverleaf yesterday, happy apart from some poor detailing by the dealership inc a small scratch but agreed to take it back later to rectify, no problem really. Take the car out for a run and all's good until we decide to come home, at this point the UConnect Nav decides...
  7. Collected my 156 today, but 2 immediate issues.

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Finally collected my 2003 156 SW 2.4JTD today, and I'm loving the drive, economy and looks of the car. However, I have a temperature gauge which barely moves at all even though the car is clearly warm, and I have no windscreen washers. I tackled the thermostat on my wife's 156 1.8TS when we got...

    Alfa MiTo

  10. Haven't even collected my G yet and...

    Alfa Giulietta
    I've already been buying stuff on eBay. Just had an offer of £60 accepted on a new AR alloy gear knob as I'd already commented about the cheap plastic one that comes fitted before I read about them coming apart in people's hands. Next purchase it a set of Giulietta mats with the white stitching...
  11. Collected my 159 a couple of days ago

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi Guys, I collected my new to me 2008 159 Ti 2.4 Qtronic on Tuesday night after waiting several days for the funds to be made available. I got the car for a very good price knowing there were a few faults with it. It is now in the paint shop getting a very minor ding removed and the wheels...
  12. It's Exactly A Year To The Day Since I Collected My GT

    North East
    And coincidently I've just been for some scran at The Talpore pub next to the Tees barrage. I decided not to leave the car unlocked with the spare keys in the glove box while I was in the pub this time though. :blush:
  13. Collected My 159 LE

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi everyone, I am now a pround owner of a 159 LE :) Really pleased with it.. Just a few questions. I think it done a dpf regen on the way home, mpg dropped like a stone & turbo gauge would drop quickly when i took my foot of the throttle? The car had been sat on the forcourt for a few...
  14. Collected Brera today need help.

    General Alfa Discussion
    Well the GT has gone, sad to see her go but a very nice touring grey Brera S will help. I have a question does the cd player play mp3 discs i have tried a couple of cds and it shows cd error.

    Alfa Giulietta
    Yes there is a typo in the thread title... Hello All, After 10 weeks of waiting our Giulietta was ready for collection today. So without further delay I present some quick and dirty snaps of our new family addition. She sits alongside a Volkswagen Scirocco and I must admit initial...

    After a week of waiting to get back from Cannes I managed to collect my GTV V6 this morning. Silver with red Momo leather, Cup kit and Powerflow quad tailpipe exhaust I'm over the moon with it. Few little jobs to do on it bit othing time consuming or expensive, amazing how different it feels...

  19. GTA Collected...

    South Africa
    Well, my road trip to collect the GTA started last week thursday. Gave the 145 a really good wash and also a oil change. Felt bad that I was letting it go. The trip only really started on friday midday. Myself and my one mate set off, destination - Beaufort West. Friday we travelled to a...
  20. Just collected my 159 3.2 V6 Q4

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    First impression after the drive home from Stoke are what a lovely car. Although not as meaty sounding as the GT the engine still has a lovely note and plenty of power. Surprised me how quick it is really considering it's a second slower to 60 than the GT according to the stats. It handles like...
