  1. cross overs for door speakers and installing a sub

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi, I'm getting a sub installed in my Giulietta but can't figure out if there is way to reduce the bass level being sent to the door speakers. I'm assuming that since the built in speakers are component that there is a cross over somewhere in the door. I'm thinking that a high pass on the door...
  2. Parts cross reference?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Is there a list on here of parts cross reference, I.e parts under a different number that rare cheaper then the Alfa named part.
  3. 156 rear suspension alloy cross member on 147

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I tried searching for this all over the net, and not only in English, but no luck. I noticed that the Alfa 156 has as standard a nice alloy suspension cross member at the back, opposed to the steel boxy thing that it’s underneath my 147. Now, as I got some poli bushes at the rear bars and they...
  4. Alfa GT JTD parts cross reference

    South Africa
    Taking a long shot here, but was wondering if any of these parts could be cross referenced. Mainly the inner tripod cv's, inner cv boots, thermostat and auxiliary belt auto tensioner. I'm too afraid to call the local stealers, last time I called they quoted me 10k on a cv for the 3.0 gtv :censored:
  5. Cross the Border Run

    North East
    Who's up for a nice run up North in a couple of weeks. Plan is to meet up in the car park at the Macdonalds/Go Outdoors just off the A1 at Westerhope (NE5 2NF) for the obligatory coffee, chat and toilet runs for my Mrs, at around 9.30/10am Then we will head North past Newcastle airport to...
  6. Sensor Cross Reference

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Apologies if this is in the wrong place/ been posted before etc. I stumbled upon this site whilst looking at MAF's for the 147. It cross references the various different part numbers for the thing you need. So with a bit of a google you can find a cheaper alternative part. Vehicle Sensors...
  7. Boot lid in black (cross posted)

    Alfa GTA
    *apologies for cross posting* As the title suggests, i'm looking for a bootlid in black to fit my 156 GTA. It needs to be pre facelift. There is a slight kink in the lid that i cannot live with (OCD). Paint match not important but must be a variety of black as I will get it sprayed and blended...

  9. Thoughts on repair of front end damage (bent cross member)

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    hello everyone. I hate being the t**t that only posts on here when there's a problem (though I have started coming to NW meets in my defense!). I have had a shunt in my GT, I went into the back of someone in slow moving traffic. I'm such an idiot!! An oil leak developed where I lost all the...
  10. 147 Dies in Idle or at cross sections randomly!

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi Everyone, Got my 147 from a friend in December - been a charm to drive! until the last few weeks.... First off - it started not wanting to ignite... the engine was turning seemed all good.. after 2-3 attempts it started... so I didn't think more of it. I was not consistent but rather...
  11. Oil filter cross reference

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Ok guys i have been using original oil filter for my 147 2.0TS but the price here $27. Even from the UK its $23 but i have to wait for long postage. Since i change my oil every 1k i am looking for a cheaper alternative. So i found an old thread here for the GTV 2.0TS 1996 Recomending: ALFA OE...

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I don't like you very much.:mad: 2 minute job! Pah! Trying to track down an M10 x 70 x 1.25 pitch. Any ideas anyone for places in the Harlow Essex area? Most M10s are at 1.5 pitch, I've got a local car spares place so will try in the morning but other ideas would be great. I'm going to go for...
  13. Has anyone investigated fitting cross wagon 4wdrive system to a 156?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello all, Just wondered if anyone had investigated retrofitting the 4 wheel drive system from the 156 crosswagon into a uk spec 156. I understand they were 1.9 jtd engines, but could the system be mated to the 2.4 jtd? Or even use part of the system to make a ( whisper it) rear wheel drive...
  14. rally cross

    Republic of Ireland
    just watched top gear and really liked the bit on rally cross. I'venever seen or heard of it over here so can it be done? Does anybody do or know anybody doing it? Seems like a very cheap way to race a car and have fun
  15. Cross Winds? not bothered.

    Alfa Giulietta
    today's storms have made me acutely aware that the Giulietta is almost totally unaffected by cross winds of 30 - 60 mph, but most other cars and lorries are shoved about all over the road. It was bizarre to see litter bins flying past, trees falling down and lorries crossing lanes at random...

    Alfa 164 & 166
    Hi Guys, Hopefully someone can help me. My 166 (3.0l V6 Sportronic) was lying up for quite a long time so I needed my mate to come down to start the car with jump leads. Long story short, the battery cables on his car were marked incorrectly (by the way, he is an electrician!). Seemed quite...
