  1. Winter is coming... Have they fixed the fuel cap and the demister yet?

    Alfa Giulia
    Hi all Its starting to get cold again. My fuel cap is showing signs of going wonky again, and the rear demister not working when the battery is 'low' is starting to be an issue. Anyone know if Alfa have fixed either of these since last year? Thanks
  2. A longstanding BMW M driver saying hello, coming over to the Italian fold.

    Introduce Yourself
    Evening all, I’ve been BMW for as long as I can remember and my last 3 cars have been the last three versions of the BMW m3 coupe (the last obviously an M4). I’ve always had the Alfa itch since my old man had one and I’ve finally committed. M4 going this weekend and I ordered a Gulia QV...
  3. Akhan 100CHM01 Coming / Leaving Home Module

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hello, Has anyone given this module a try? Apparently it's a retrofit to allow automatic coming home/leaving home lights, a feature which has only been half assedly implemented (in my opinion anyway) in 159/Brera (and probably others too) Think I'll give this a go at some point...
  4. Constant noise coming from dashboard

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    There's a constant whining/buzzing noise coming from the dashboard, even after turning the car off. My last 159 did this too so I'm assuming others have experienced this. Does anyone know what it is? I'm pretty sure it's the reason why my battery would go flat when the car hadn't been started...
  5. Idle drops to nearly zero when coming to a stop from over 30kph/18mph

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    What the title says really. And this only happens with the AC on. If I depress the clutch to come to a stop while the AC is on and at speeds over 30kph the idle drops the nearly zero before settling regularly. The issue doesn't happen with the AC off at all, and if I slow to under 30kph before...

    Hi everyone Was hoping someone could assist with the above. I was having issues with the EGR valve on my 05 GT 1.9jtd. I blanked it for a few months and the error appeared on the dash as expected but the car ran better than ever. The car needed to pass its NCT so I purchased a new EGR valve...
