  1. Self opening Veloce. Should I be concerned?

    Alfa Giulia
    So, here I was, walking towards my Veloce, parked at the same place as everyday. My keyless entry activated. Key in my pocket. But this time, the Giulia opened itself as I was about a meter away from the door... Could the key have been pressing on the open button in my pocket? Or is that the...

  3. DPF - any reason to still be concerned ?

    Alfa Giulietta
    My 159 ownership in the early months was totally ruined by the half baked DPF nonsense they'd rushed onto the car, eventually i removed the choking rubbish and the car transformed. Have Alfa delivered a 'working' DPF in the G ? - i presume they've had time to sort things out for this newer...
  4. AR dealers...I'm really concerned.

    South Africa
    Where is our thread where we counted the amount of Giulietta's?MiTo's/159's and Fiat's sold? It was looking good-ish for a while to see over 40 brand new Alfa's being sold each month:cheese: But now? Now that NO new 159's are hitting the shores and NO news on facelift MiTo's and Giuliettas are...

  14. Should I be concerned....?

    Alfa 164 & 166
    Hi all, My new (pre-loved) 166 has, like all good Alfas, a character. Mine however seems to occasionally, especially when the engine is cold, have the odd one off small backfire or lurch. It almost feels like the engine is missing a cylinder for a few seconds and then kicks back in. As this is...
