  2. Dodgy side light holder? ...and a confession

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Ok first of all, I went to Halfords to get a side light fitted - yes...i'll hang my head in shame... :rolleyes: for someone who's regularly done his own servicing and small mechanical jobs in the past im not proud to admit it! But i vaguely remember losing the will to live the last time i did...
  3. Embarrassed Confession

    Alfa 164 & 166
    Well - what can I say! The other night I noticed a very "light" chink sound when I closed the car door the other night. In fact the same sound happened with both rear doors and driver's door but not front passenger. The sound was too light to be suspension related or such like. Opening and...
  4. Confession time

    Alfa GTA
    I have a confession to make. In February this year, I sold my beloved 156 v6 and bought a brand new Passat R36. The alfa after serving me loyally for 225,000km without a single time stranding me on the side of the road in the heats of Dubai, had to go. I went to the local Alfa dealer and was...
  5. Confession Time

    Alfa Giulietta
    OK, so I had not driven my Giulietta for 2 weeks. I was getting tired of the diesel clatter, the griefers at work and down the pub. Perhaps our relationship was a little stale. I went to Spain and then I borrowed the wife's Mazda 6 2.0 155bhp for a week. I feel like I have been unfaithful...
  6. Embarrassing confession!

    Alfa 145 & 146
    Driving home the other night n/s wiper packed in. Got home and tightened it up, no joy, tightened it up some more, still no joy. Worried about over tightening it and suspecting a problem with the spline, popped into Gonella Bros this morning (just round the corner, fortunately). One turn of...
  7. A little confession

    Northern Ireland
    Ok guys, I have some bad news, and some good news! The bad part is very bad! lol Unfortunately just over 3 weeks ago my MiTo had a nasty bump! (Not my fault, And Im not going to get into the whole story as I hate talking about it!) But the whole story cut short is that she is a write off :( The...
  8. CONFESSION: I drowned my Meta Siren last night

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Bloody thing :mad: After months of the siren going off at strange times, often when the alarm wasn't even set, last night I got totally fed up. What a noise they make when you just disconnect them :lol: It's like a squeal of a trapped animal :( and then, boy, do they take some time to die...
  9. Embarrassing confession!

    Alfa 164 & 166
    Had to jump start my wife's car tonight, and couldn't find the battery! How often do you have to look in the owner's manual to find a battery? :o
  10. Confession

    Car Detailing
    I put the Brera through a garage carwash today. :o:o:o Seems to have come through quite well. It was a new one with ultra soft brushes....
  11. Confession

    Introduce Yourself
    Hey Everyone I am Onur from Istanbul and I just bought a 147 2.0 a week ago. I gotta confess that I was worried about all the reliability buzz over the Internet, but having to drive the Alfa for a week, I feel that this car cannot let me down :) Greetings to everyone...
  12. Confession Time

    General Alfa Discussion
    Having driven several different Alfas with several different engines around Croft circuit yesterday, I must admit that, excluding the 159 3.2 Q4, I enjoyed driving the diesel engines cars the most. I now intend to tender my resignation as regional representative and leave the forum forever.
  13. I have a confession to make...

    Alfa GTA
    In the last week or so, I've been looking at replacements for my GTA. I'm getting increasingly worried about running costs, the new VED rates coming in have been the last straw for me. Add to this the fact that I might need a new clutch master cylinder soon, the 35k service is imminent, and...
  14. another alfa related arousal confession..

    General Alfa Discussion
    is it right that every time i hop into my 147 and get her up to those magical 3000+ revs that i just cant help but smile? i mean, really really smile? i think the biggest part of the enjoyment is the noise, that mix between rumbling exhaust, burbling engine, induction roar and that twinspark...
  15. Confession To Make

    General Alfa Discussion
    Last week I was a little bit ****ed about little things that weren`t quite right with my GTA.(GTA guys know what I`m on about). On the Friday before I was driving past a Mitsubshi garage and saw a nice silver Evo V111.So on the Saturday I went down to the garage to test drive it. Got to the...

  17. I have a confession to make....

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    When I originally joined AO I was in quite a rush to get in and read the problems people were having with their 147's. I realized when I logged in that this was a tight knit community which would provide me with invaluable information. So my confession .... When I joined I just wanted to get...
  18. I have a confession to make.....

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Earlier in the week I took a spin in a colleagues VW Golf V5 which he had on loan from VW to test drive before maybe purchasing. Yesterday I got it into my head that I should sell my 147 and purchase a nearly new Golf V5. Don't ask my why but I even went to the extreme of popping down the...
