    Now that Graham Eddy Motori (Penzance) is permanently closed, does anyone have any recommendations for servicing in West Cornwall? Preferably Truro or west as I am about 8 miles from Lands End... There are a couple of local garages that are fine for some things but they don’t have the Alfa /...

  6. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Decided to start a new thread just to discuss the fixing of my gearbox I have whirring noise in gears 3,4,5 and 6 and so from looking at the many threads on here it seems I need the bearings changing. I've emailed a few garages sourced through these forums, the quickest to reply were WG...

    Just a quick introduction as I've just bought a 2007 2.2JTS Brera in red, absolutely love it! Already found this forum very useful, but I've been banned by my better half already, as I can't help getting stressed after reading of the faults and problems others have had! :eek: So far mine has...

    Hi, I have just bought my first 147 as a project, its a 2002 with 65000 miles, it suffering from corrosion issues and has suffered some neglect. I've already fixed some lighting issues with damaged and corroded connectors. It needs brakes, suspension work and a cambelt too all too come but i...

    ...from Surrey if you'd just got the "Have Engine Checked" warning? Warning came after being stuck on the M25 crawling in very hot temperatures for 40 minutes or so. Also have the old fashioned yellow engine light on. Have given the car a few hours to cool off and rethink, but it hasn't...

    Hi guys, I've been reading loads of posts about fantastic Alfa indys up country, but I'm in the deepest darkest parts of Cornwall. Can anyone recommended a/some specialists down this way. Want to think about getting my cam belt / water pump changed soon (car is 5 years with 33K on, so still...
  12. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    I have literally spent hours reading people's comments on here about remaps, but still clueless. I have a 1.9 159 (09 plate). I love it to bits, however feel the engine can be a bit sluggish in lower gears and the MPG is just shocking... I want a remap, naturally now I'm not wanting to get a...
  13. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Does any body know of a good specialist in Devon or Cornwall please.
  14. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Has anyone taken their Alfa to Celtic Tuners in Roche (Cornwall)? I'm thinking about a remap on my Alfa 159 1.9 JTDM, not massively wanting it for the extra power (although would be nice), want it for a bit better fuel economy. Any advice greatly received :) KS

    Hello all. I have just got myself a 2009 159 JTD Lusso Sportwagon last weekend. I have been driving German for many years and am seriously impressed with the build quality of the Alfa so far. Christian.:thumbs:
  16. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi All, Just back from two and a half weeks in Cornwall in my GT 3.2 V6. I did just under 1000 trouble free miles (apart from kerbing an alloy - doh!) at an average of 24 mpg. We stayed for a couple of nights in Boscastle and then had two weeks in the far west in Porthleven where had a house...

    I might get lambasted for this, but here goes. This ain't an attempt to undermine efforts on this site. More about adding to the fun and interest, particularly as I seem to be one of only two Alfisti in N Devon I've created a Group on Facebook, and welcome others to join us, please...
  18. Car Detailing
    Hello all, My red GTV needs some paint and I'm wondering if anyone can recommend a decent, not too expensive paint shop in Devon. I've got a very pink bumper and the laquer is completely knacked on the mirrors, totally peeled off on the tops. I'm thinking of painting the mirrors myself to save...
