  1. 147 Collezione Heads Up.

    North East
    Just a heads up. I put a deposit down on the 147 Collezione at a trader in Washington two weeks ago only to be kindly informed that, during the PDI check, it was found to have serious crash damage. It is still being advertised but no mention of crash damage.
  2. Which company for 1.9JTDm remap?

    Tuning & Upgrades
    I have a 159 1.9JTDm and really feel it would benefit from a remap for more low end pull and better MPG. I don't want to go down the line of DPF removal as its a newer model and in the tighter bracket for MOT emissions test. No one has been able to assure me that it would pass an MOT. Q1: Is...
  3. Are they the same company?

    General Alfa Discussion
    Does anyone know if "https://www.alfa-service.com" and "http://ricambi.alfisti.net" are basically the same company? I ordered something online from Alfa Service and they called me today saying they couldn't get it anymore, unless they ordered it in from Italy at more than twice the price. The...

  6. Good wheel refurb company in Merseyside?

    North West
    Hi All, wondering if anyone might be kind enough to share details of a decent alloy wheel repair service that doesn't charge the earth in Merseyside area? Ideally something mobile that could come to my work and do it, but doesn't have to be (so long as it can be done same day). I've done a few...

  8. Gearbox Company- Warning! Do Not use the Reconditioned Gearbox Company in Twickenham

    General Alfa Discussion
    This is to warn anyone in the West or South London areas not to have your Alfa gearbox worked on by The Reconditioned Gearbox Company in Whitton, near Twickenham. This company is the worst firm I have ever dealt with in 26 years of driving. They supposedly replaced the worn :cry:bearings and...
  9. Which Mito, Company Car, you decide!!!!

    Alfa MiTo
    If I'm lucky enough to nail a job I'm going for I get the option to buy into the company car scheme and I'm considering the Mito. My daily commute is 100 miles a day with 80% of the on the motorway at 60mph then a small section across London. Now I've looked at the engines in the range and I'm...
  10. Company car choice - Giulietta MA or JTD TCT?

    Alfa Giulietta
    I started a new job about 6 month ago that involves a fair bit of national travel. I currently have an Audi S3 Sportback S-Tronic (with remap), which is an amazing car but a little wasted on business miles. I had two Fiat Coupe 20V Turbos back in the day, so I do "get" the Italian car thing...

  12. PCP Finance Returning Mito to finance company.

    Alfa MiTo
    Hi All, My Mito will be 3 years old in June and as I bought it on a PCP finance plan I have to either pay a final balloon payment to keep the car or return it to Alfa Finance. Due to the credit crunch I can no longer afford to keep the car and need to return it (or pay the final payment and...

  14. Company car drivers, what a tease...

    Alfa 164 & 166
    There's a steep hill on the A21 heading north where there are 3 lanes. I like to sit in the 2nd lane in "sport" mode. A Vauxhall/BMW/AUDI 2litre diesel tries to come past. FLOOR IT! I know that it's silly, but it's fun...

  16. Going onto Company Car Scheme...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I'm going onto the car scheme at work and therefore the Alfa 156TS Sportwagon I bought at Christmas will be sold. It's had a hard life, and got a repair to the offside front A frame/door panel. 53,000 miles(but no book with it), the power steering is noisy on start up when cold outside, when...
  17. Guilietta for company car replacing 147DC

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hello all, This is my first post... I am driving a 147 Ducati Corse as a company car at the moment, which is due to be replaced in March, and I'm looking at the 140 JTDM Veloce (170 is too heavy on personal contributions/company car tax, I'm afraid). I've got one coming for a 4 day test drive...
  18. 147 actuator - how to claim it from the warranty company?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    After experiencing issues with the 147 selespeed gears, the mechanic advised that the actuator needs to be changed, as it leaks fluid, thus causing the problems. Our warranty refuses to pay for a new actuator, given that (according to them) it does nto fall under the items covered (I cite from...
  19. Company Giulietta or bought our own?

    Alfa Giulietta
    So how many of us have put down our own money and how many have the pleasure of the company paying to create a used Giulietta for some lucky soul? And if it is a company car ,is the spec higher or lower than you would buy yourself?

    Hi, I would like to get a really reliable garage in the south to ensure my car is well looked after for years to come. Dont mind travelling quite a distance so any recommendations are welcome as long as the garage has been trading under the same company for a number of years. Appreciate there...
