  1. 156 V6 rear brake confusion.

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    So I'm refurbishing my brakes and I've noticed something with the rear brakes. I have a 2005 156 V6 Sportwagon with 276mm rear discs. However, the calipers only take brake pads which don't fit the entire width of the rear disc. When the rear discs were changed from 251mm to 276mm were the...
  2. Engine oil level reading confusion?

    Alfa Giulia
    DIY oil-change on my Giulia 2,2 150. The new clean oil makes it hard to "read" the dip-stick. Picture 1, taken at start without starting the engine, means (according to handbook) "Insufficient engine oil level". Picture 2 means "Oil level at max" (I have done the engine oil level update a few...
  3. V6 confusion need expert help, which one to pick??

    General Alfa Discussion
    Hiya guys and girls, I am one of those annoying people who pop in and ask dumb questions about V6 Alfa engines. In an tempt to redeem myself a little I want to say that have owned Italian motorcycles since 1985, I have owned an Alfa before, (147 2 litre) and I currently own a couple of Italian...
  4. Colour confusion

    Alfa Giulietta
    Am I assuming right that Cobalto Blue and Blu Anodizatto are the same colour? The codes are the same when you search online, and when I look for touch up paint, it defaults to Cobalto due to the code. Cracking colour and draws loads of attention but shows up lots of imperfections-stays clean...
  5. Fault code confusion

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi. I have an issue with fault codes or maybe not. I have my engine management light coming on, but after some research on here (thanks people) I figured it may be the DPF not cleaning itself and took advice and went for a run. My normal run 5 days a week is around 6miles to work and then back...
  6. 2005 GT bulb confusion

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi guys! I was thinking about changing some of my bulb to LEDs, according to my manual I have P21W bulbs in rear indicator, rear fog light and reverse light, and a PY21W as a front indicator. Now I did a quick check on the rear indicator and it's a H21W. Am I safe to assume that all P21W and...
  7. Hi Carla here...Wish I had read up about oil confusion before buying

    Introduce Yourself
    Hey a newbie here from Essex. I’ve just purchased a 147 selespeed. Now I’m looking at a lot of YouTube videos on how to maintain Luggs (car name) so far I’ve purchased oil online, which is a first for me and tells you how serious I’m taking being an Alfa owner, not your big standard Halfords...
  8. Meta Alarm Confusion

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi all, Sorry, more questions. The alarm... Never had a fob for it, so never used it or had it go off. Was going to get a replacement unit from Abacus Alarms so had a dig around the centre console this afternoon. Nothing is there, no loose wires, no terminal block, no unit... Anyone have...
  9. Brera wishbone confusion

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Ok, so this has been discussed in various threads but the information for identifying the right wishbone assembly can be conflicting and doesn't make sense with what is on my car. So my car is a Brera S on a 58 plate and according to the chassis number was built in April 2008. According to EPER...
  10. 1.9 JTDM 8V Injektor confusion

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Greetings from Austria! I was looking for possible spare injectors for my 2009 1.9 JTDM 8V 120hp. On the injectors in my engine the printed number is 0445110 276 In all spare part catalogues that injector is listed for multiple vehicles (Opel, Fiat, Alfa), but mine! In those catalogues the...
  11. Colour Confusion

    Alfa Giulia
    About to pull the trigger on a new Giulia Quad order and cant for the life of me, make a decision on colour. every time i start to go for vesuvio grey i find myself looking at Vulcano black because of the images from Frankfurt...
  12. New Order Confusion

    Alfa Giulia
    I'm looking at getting a new Veloce, but I don't have any local dealers, so I'm looking further afield, I suppose that's the beauty of the internet. Anyhow, the dealer I've made contact with are using the current AR promotion, but, the cars seem to be ARUK stock cars. Fine if you are happy...
  13. Rear Roll Bar Drop Links - Confusion Help Needed!

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Car just failed MOT on rear drop link driver side. Decided to order both a left and a right, I've replaced the drivers side tonight but the one that came off looks like a nearside, (when compared to the one on the nearside.) (The two came in packaged together so can't go on part numbers.) The...
  14. Brake line confusion

    Alfa GTA
    So I've bought some second hand 330mm calipers and I've also bought some new lines for when I fit them. Before I bought the lines I searched on here to make sure I was getting the right thing. The threads I found suggested that both ends needed to be female so that's what I bought however...
  15. Total confusion over oil grade!

    Alfa Giulietta
    The latest Giulietta Handbooks show Selenia Digitek PE 0W/30 for the 1.4 MA 170. My 2016 Handbook says Selenia StAR PE 5W/40. I thought Digitek was for the TwinAir only. The dealer put Castrol 0W/30 in my MA 170 yesterday for its first service- which I queried. I was told it was compatible and...
  16. Head lights confusion?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi there, In the 147, front lights what do 3 of those light do? The one closest to the middle of the car doesn't seem to come on? I just find my head light not great! Might just be a case of better bulb needed! Thanks. Ming
  17. Colour Confusion

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi All, Recently acquired a 2.0 JTDm2 Sportiva (replaced a 166 V6) and I am really pleased with it. I driven many Alfa's and find the Giulietta to be a very fine car and a worthy replacement to the 166. The bonnet sticker of my car states the colour as being Maranello Red 106/B, however the...
  18. 156 trip computer confusion!

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Morning all. Got a 2.0 jts and I'm confused. I filled the tank yesterday and reset the mileage on the speedo to zero, I also reset the on board computer, the mpg the lot. Now the mileage on my speedo says one thing and the distance travelled on the computer says another. Probably a 5 mile...
  19. 147 1.9 JTDm 8v alternator confusion

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi everyone! I have a 2007 1.9 JTDm 8v, the 120 hp version. My alternator gave up and I'm trying to source a new one. ePER has suggested a 105 amp version with p/n 60816557 by VIN. But my local dealer has also a 120 amp version with p/n 60816557 (not by VIN though). So which one is the right...
  20. True Alfa Red Colour confusion

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hello, and as a potential first-time Alfa owner, please accept my apologies for what may seem a daft question. The garage I have dealt with for a number of years sent me a picture of an Alfa Giuletta they had just taken in, with a view to tempting me to upgrade from my trusty Ford Focus...
