    Alfa Giulia
    I have a 2011 159 Ti saloon and am looking to upgrade to the Giula next year. My hobby is playing in a band, and one of my amplifiers "just" fits into the opening of the boot by about an inch, once its in there's plenty of room to shuffle it about. So my question is, how big is the opening of...
  2. Jaguar XE compared to Giulia Veloce

    Alfa Giulia
    Giulia still held as standard. Wish the review actually compared the two cars though instead of just a mention at the end.

  5. Giulietta suspension compared to Dodge Dart.

    Alfa Giulietta
    Not sure if any of you are aware but the American Dodge dart is basically a re-bodied Giulietta. Almost all of the suspension is the same and Giuli managed to fit a Dodge Dart coilover kit to his QV to improve the handling. Now, I am not sure if this is true or not but I had heard that the...

    4C & 4C Spider
    With such light weight, and the lack of side airbags that other modern cars normally gets, how safe will the 4C be in the event of a collision when compared to it's competitors, like the Cayman? Anyone care to speculate?

  11. Running costs - 135 compared with 170

    Alfa MiTo
    Hi, Been looking at the Mito's for ages now and had my eye set on the 135. Seems to be pretty cheap to run ? I do about 60 miles a day round trip commute to work, so around about 14K - 17K miles a year at a guess. However the 170 cloverleaf is only a few K more to buy but assume it cost a lot...

    Alfa Giulietta
    The reference, as Dan points out, was to the similar interiors of the models, and we were talking about Dan's "loaner". Let's not debate anything else here, this is Dan's thread and we don't want to hijack it :tut:

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I am a great lover of the 159 absolutely stunning car. I am wanting to know how capable the chassis is? Does it have potential? I have a very special Gt with alot spent on chassis mods. At the moment i fully expect to have another one. But i have always pondered the 159 ti models. How capable...
  15. Ride on 17s compared to 18s.

    Alfa GTA
    Hi Guys. The 18" multispokes on my Dads 147 GTA are in need of a serious refurb. However, he also complains about the ride on our appalling West Yorkshire roads so he's thinking of changing to some repro 17" teledials when he next needs some tyres instead of refurbing his 18" multispokes. Has...
  16. Lower seats in GTV compared to Spider?

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Last night I was in my friend's Mk3 GTV and realized I was sitting much lower than I am in my Mk2 Spider. I double checked with another Mk2 Spider and the feeling was the same. Has anybody here noticed same difference? Is there any difference between GTV and Spider, or maybe between Mk2 and Mk3...

    I saw my first GT Up close yesterday while getting some work done on my own car and I was very impressed with the way it looked and wondered what it would be like to own one. So I was thinking of upgrading and selling my GTV and getting a GT. Has anyone owned a GTV and updgraded to a GT? If so...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    My 07 reg 2.2 JTS is with the dealer for some warranty work which also includes change of the power steering fluid which was the wrong type (red colour), as it was noisy and creaking at low speed! I now have a 08 reg 159 1.9JTD as a courtesy car. First thing I noticed was how light the steering...
