  1. Introduce Yourself
    Hello all, Having owned an R56 MINI Cooper Hatch for the last few years, a recent trip to the garage revealed a long list of future repair tasks that would soon result in me paying out more for upkeep than the car was worth (clutch had limited travel remaining, tyres, brakes, thermostat leaking...

  7. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Guys, I drove 6 hours today to look at someone else's heap of *****. The GT was an absolute disgrace. Anyway, I am 3 miles from home and hit a fox smack bang head on at 70mph in my 156. pushed my radiator back slightly but suprisingly it still works. It smashed the plastic...
  8. Alfa 164 & 166
    ..well after four years I've finally sorted out an annoying intermittent fault in the stereo, and it's like having a new car :) . I've already spent more than the cost of the fix in petrol, just cruising around listening to some tunes, so in celebration here's a tribute to late night cruising by...
  9. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Might be a stupid question but what is included in a head gasket set, particularly a BGA since they seem to be everywhere. The only reason I ask is that I am replacing the rockers after a cam belt snap and noticed a couple of extra oil leaks and the exhaust manifold wasnt fitted right either...

    Had the car a couple of weeks now (Year 2000 Lusso on 17's), and wanted to post some thoughts and see if people have experienced the same, or it is a case of TADTS!! Tramlining, quite severe to the point where the car feels dangerous! Harsh ride, especially over broken roads, my 911 rode...
