  1. ICE & Blue&Me
    Evening all, So, I'm another victim of a unit that isn't the first in the car (I've got a 159Ti again). Entered what I thought was the correct code (i.e. from the card in the car's docs) a few times and then gave up. I've since gotten the correct code, but my issue is the "Wait" prompt - yep...

    Hi everyone. New to the forum :-) Picked up my first Alfa two days ago! It's a 2.0 JTDM 170 Veloce with a few nice additions. My girlfriend has owned a MiTo for four years and my Dad had a few 156s prior to that, so it's long overdue that I've joined the club. Mine has 43k miles on it and...
  3. Alfa Giulietta
    I have just noticed that on Alfisti.net they are selling Bilstein B6 Dampers and Eibach prokit springs for the sum of £435 all in. (€609) which I think is a bargain compared to other places I have seen. As I am a bit dissapointed with the ride and handling of my (Lusso) Giulietta, I am very...
  4. Alfa GTA
    I really don't want coilovers on this car so trying to find a good alternative without spending silly amounts of money. Anyone used this combo before? http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/AP-Spring-Damper-Suspension-Kit-Alfa-Romeo-147-1-9-JTD-GTA-01-01-/251671546679?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_3&hash=item3a98cb0b37
  5. Alfa Giulietta
    Whilst recently test driving a TCT Giulietta I saw a Profondo Blue car in the flesh for the first time. This threw a spanner in the works as I was previously trying to decide between Alfa Red and Magnesio Grey. I really like the red leather seats so Magnesio was seeming like the colour to go...

    Hello everyone, as you know on Sunday the 11th of September it's the Auto Italia event at the Heritage centre at Gaydon. On the following Tuesday (the 13th) it's the September SWARM. Obviously the two events are very close together. Separated only by one day (my birthday:cry:). This got me...

  13. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi there going to lower the monster truck that is my 147 ltd lusso, thinking -35mm with 18" multi-spokes, but what works best on the 147? should i go for the -35mm and just a 17" or run it on 18" alloys? thinking with 18" it would need to be 225 40 18 for tyres and 205 40 17 if i went down the...
  14. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, I'm just about to buy S005 ZHA, a 2005 Lipari Grey 1.9 JTD mjet. It's originally from the Aberdeen area. It was a dealer demonstrator and it's been in single ownership since. Any one on here? By the way, it's quite an unusual colour combination as it has the light grey leather/dashboard...

    I was driving my Vauxhall combo the other night, and went to turn around on an un-made road and when i went foward i hit a railway sleeper on the side of the road :rolleyes: I was going around 10 Mph and it stopped the van on the spot with quite some force. When driving off i immediately felt...
  16. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi all,When i got my GTV a weeks ago one of the 1st things i did was to paint the callipers red,they looked great with the 16inch alloys but now i have put on 17inch 5 spoke ones and they show the calipers more. Im not sure the colour combo is right and thinking of painting them yellow as they...

    What's the most common / uncommon GTA paint / leather combination? Mine is Giabanni Blue w/ black and tan insert leather.
  18. ICE & Blue&Me
    Hi there, I've just bought a 147. It's a 2001 model. I really want to be able to use my iPhone for my music and even though my car has a changer in the boot, I would rather not use CDs at all. I wanted to keep the original head unit as I just feel that removing it would ruin the look of the...
  19. Alfa GTA
    just curious as to what rear brakes you guys have fitted to 147 GTA? mine are booked in to be replaced in a few weeks time... I was going to go for standard Brembo plain discs with DS2500 pads, any thoughts? Has anybody tried Tarox on the rear?
