  1. Alfa Giulia
    Was in unfamiliar territory last week and so just pressed the Voice Button and said 'Navigate home' Followed the directions for a bit then realised I was going in the opposite direction... Zoomed out and it was directing me to a completely random destination just a few miles away! Tried it four...
  2. Alfa Giulietta
    Hi all. I know there's been lots of threads on this but I can't find them using the search for some reason. Rear wiper is sometimes wiping when it shouldn't and parking in a random position. Is it the wiring loom or can it be a motor fault? Thanks.
  3. Alfa 164 & 166
    Bought my 166 on Sunday. The car just had over £600 spent on it in a respected Alfa Specialist in Dundee a week ago to get it through the MOT paid for by the previous owner I’ve just spent £1050 on repairs to it and it still needs some minor paint. I’ve done all the advisories and lots of other...
  4. The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Hi all! I have a strange problem with my Giulietta, -84, 2 liter. The moment I turn on the ignition the speedo goes crazy and runs all the way to max speed- The odometer ticks over accordingly. What might be the problem? Checked the wiring attached to the gearbox and it seems to be OK. Cheers...

  7. Alfa Giulietta
    Just need to vent more than anything. I've had my G for 2 weeks. On the drive home I got a couple of decent stone chips on my windscreen. Since then, I've had at least another 4 or 5 noticeable stones/debris hit my windscreen...enough to startle me when driving. Can't even remember the last time...
  8. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    My fuel gauge on my 2002 156 2TS is going crazy, it swings from E to way past F continuously, I'm suspecting that the gauge went bad, I already taken the fuel pump assembly out and test with a multimeter, it read between 003- about 300 ohm(meter set at 2000) when I swing the arm up and down, so...
  9. Alfa 33, Sud & Sprint
    Is a late model Alfa 33 1.7 Q4 a crazy idea for a second car at this point ? I have read that the late 33 cars are better with rust than the 80's ones or any Alfa 75. But how reliable are they in general and specially the boxer engine? Are they high maintenance and expensive to maintain and...

  15. South Africa
    Hi guys. So some of you may know I own a facelift 146 that needs a LOT of work. I've decided to keep it, after considering selling for a while, as it is really one of a kind in SA AFAIK. Engine, gearbox, suspension and body all need work. With the interior being the least of my worries with...
  16. Alfa Giulietta
    2011 1.6 Lusso... Not long had the car from independent dealer... Only problem is rear wiper not parking.... Had a look and wiring looked a mess of electrical tape so someone has had a go at rear loom repairs before! Took car back to dealer and they took it to a auto electriction.. Agreed...
  17. Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi Guys, I've been lurking around on this forum for over a year now, reading up on the 159 and learning from everyone's buying and ownership experiences. I'm now in a position where I'm looking to buy my own 159, and its slim pickings for my ideal spec! However, whilst looking, I have found...
  18. Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi folks, I've got an '09 159 which I'm loving - but the intermittent wiper seems to have lost the plot completely. No matter what speed I set it to, I get a couple of intermittent wipes and then it starts to wipe as fast as it possibly can. Distracting and annoying! I'm assuming something...

  20. South Africa
    Hi, I'm buying a 2005 147 2.0 twin-spark (5dr) from a small dealer in Goodwood, Cape Town. The process has been drawn out and I've been second-guessing myself the whole way through (a few weeks now). Thing is.. the car has no books and no traceable service history etc. BUT... it only has 85k...
