  1. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, Thought I'd share this with you. My beloved 156 1.8 T Spark Veloce passed its MOT with flying colours last week. The MOT tester said that it was the best Alfa (of its era) that he'd seen. Completely solid, rust free and in stunning condition. Which it is! I've had the car about a year...
  2. Alfa GTA
    Today, to apologise to the GTA for not driving it for a month, I took her for a hand wash (I'm still not fully recovered, trying to do it myself would have killed me.) The fella who was chammying it off at the end asked me what the engine was when he opened the doors to do the frames, and said...
  3. Alfa Giulietta
    Nice and mild today so I decided to service my wife's Toyota and my new (to me G QV) Both had Oil, oil filter, air filter and plugs. The Toyota all done in about an hour, the G about 5 hours! Part of this was that the car is new to me, so it took me longer to figure where everything goes...

  5. Alfa Giulia
    I saw this linked to in another forum and it sheds some light on the recent news about failed crash tests: All the gossip from the Geneva motor show | Top Gear "We ask him about a report in a well-sourced industry newspaper that the car was delayed because it failed crash tests. He looks TG...

    Ok, so we have chatted about a few Japanese sports coupes of late, the 300ZX (seemed quite complex) and the 92-ish Mazda RX-7. Tonight, I present for your comment, knowledge and nous, the Nissan 350Z. For a nice and capable sports coupe, it makes a decent case for itself. What can the good...
  7. Alfa Giulietta
    So, I have been having since new a slight hesitation in the engine in my TCT on some cold mornings/evening in the first few minutes of driving. Basically when I pull up to the junction at the end of my road sometimes the engine dies or coughs and stutters like a manual that is in too high a...
  8. Alfa MiTo
    (Hopefully) I have added some pictures of my front tyres. They used to be on the back of the car and as such I believe that they may be the original tyres on the car. They are probably 5 years old and have covered 25000 miles. As you can see, plenty of tread, but......:eek: Any comments?
  9. Giulietta

  11. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi all I am in dire need of a new exhaust, the pipe that comes from the engine is ok, but everything from there to the rear end is bad, there are leaks at all joints, and serious rust, and all of the boxes rattle inside, so am assuming they are all busted. Formula 1 (who I have experience as...

  13. South Africa
    It was good to hear positive comments on the Alfa 159 and Fiat Bravo from Ignition presenters and the guest from GM. Only Quinton from Kia displayed his ignorance by dismissing both cars in typical, stereotyped fashion. Thumbs up to Adam Ford for making such logical and positive, sensible...
  14. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Guys, People are commetning a fair bit now about my engine being noisey. Cant say i notice it but people ( even those who own diesel cars ) say its loud. Is this right for for the JTD, is it generally a noisey engine becuae i cant see much wrong.
  15. Alfa Giulietta
    It seems to me that on here there is a certain attitude towards diesel versions of the Giulietta or indeed any Alfa. TBH, I don't understand it at all. You would think that those that love Alfa as they claim to would be happy that more people are buying the marque. Keeping it alive to allow...
  16. Alfa 33, Sud & Sprint
    last week I got a comment from a white van driver pulling out of a T junction as I was pulling up to park, "Nice Alfa mate" Today whilst filling up with petrol another driver said, "Nice car mate" Any other other members get this? Nice to know other motorists appreciate a good old classic Alfa...
  17. Alfa Giulietta
    After humming and haing for around eight months, I'm ready to place an order for a new Giulietta. I think this is my final spec list, but I'd like to hear people's opinion on the options. Is there anything you recommend I shouldn't get, or anything I should that isn't on the list? Cheers :)...
