  1. Alfa Giulietta
    Been driving a Mk5 VW Golf over Easter, whilst not as fast or nice to look at as my MA170 (2012) I did find; The Golf was quieter inside with regards to road noise. It stuck to the country roads and absorbed rough roads as well as the G. I think my G has had some work done or a replacement on...
  2. Alfa Giulietta
    So, fitting my new set of Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3s (oh my god, they instantly transform the car!) and the fact nobody wanted to buy these wheels from me gave me the excuse to give the 5 holes a rest and fit the turbines. I really like the look, which do you prefer?
  3. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    What sort of differences would I notice and reliability issues?
  4. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    has anyone got experience of both Bilstein B16 PSS9 and KW V3? From reading around, the feeling I get is that they are both equally good for sport driving settings but KW may be better suited for not-so-good roads, is this right? Looking at online pictures, Billies seem to use standard 2.5"...
  5. General Alfa Discussion
    Had the car for nearly 5 months now, covered 5,000 miles, and I'm achieving 620 miles + without the refuel light even coming on. Now for a 63 litre tank, I'm quite amazed but very happy. OBC says 54.3 average most of the time, but even going off what goes in the tank, I'm still hitting 50+ mpg...
  6. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Looking for another SW….I have a 1.9 at the moment. How would a JTS engine compare it terms of performance and economy? :)
  7. Alfa Giulietta
    I know most People on an alfa forum will be biased towards the alfa brand but I have bought a GQV recently (still haven't collected) and looked at all of its competition in the last six months and to see a giulietta in the flesh it just looks so much more appealing their is just something extra...
  8. North East
    Now then everyone, We haven't done much for a while, which I'm very sorry about. To kick-start us, how about a short and sweet brekkie meet at the A68 cafe? No run planned, just a chance to have a bit of crack with everyone together, and then mebbes poke about at each others cars. If people...
  9. Alfa MiTo
    Hello, I've been looking at getting a Mito for a while now....only just starting to get the required funds though. I've been looking at both the 135 and the QV/Cloverleaf, and aside from the extra power (and cost) along with different suspension?, what differences are there between the two...

I have been costing everything up and.....ouch! with a tough economic climate everyone is trying to save a few £££ and who doesnt love a bargin:D. I think i have found a few good buys so will list what i have found and...

    I am in mourning this week as my 156 2.4jtd Sportwagon was given its last rites by the insurance company and I had to turn off its life support, all thanks to an idiotic girl ramming it from behind on Xmas day in her Seat Ibiza.:cry: I am now on the look out for a replacement car, and am...
  12. Alfa GTA
    Ok, this is for a full service (yearly), replacement of a leaky radiator hose (one that exits the bottom of the engine (more or less) and goes to the bottom of the radiator, plus front ARB replacement: The price for the pipe is £108.00 Plus fitting £63.00 Total...
  13. Alfa GTA
    Hi, I'm really after some input on how the FSD & Eibach Spring combo feels for ride comfort, In some circumstances I'm absolutely loving my Eibach ProStreet S Coilovers but for most day to day driving on the absolutely apalling roads round where I live I'm finding the constant bouncing around...

  15. Alfa 164 & 166
    The design of the 166 is now well over ten years old. How does it still stack up against current cars? I've owned Alfas, Lancias (and one Fiat) since 1985. When I bought my 164 it was the height of Italian styling performance and luxury for me. I replaced it with a 156 but missed the 3.0 power...
  16. Alfa 164 & 166
    Anyone have both who can describe the real world differences? Or actually driven both. Had 3.0 super, got 3.0 Sporto. Loved the super, like the sporto. Will I like the 2.5 V6? Will I notice the slight power decrease
  17. ICE & Blue&Me
    Right still loving my baby brera.... been looking at which satnav to fit in.... the original factory fitting one that fits nicely in the car dash or the top pioneer one AVIC-HD1BT (which ive heard works better??)
  18. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Thinking of trading my 1998 2.0TS for a 2003 1.8TS facelifted model. Just wondering if anyone has done a similar move and what are the pros & cons and what was the 1.8 like to live with. Do you need more frequent gear changes with the smaller engine and is there a noticable difference in...

    I am looking at replacing my 155 1.8 16v with a 156 1.8. How do they compare overall and in terms of handling etc? As I have heard they are completley different. Thanks Thomas
