    Alfa GTA
    Please tell me I'm not the only one using a GTA as a daily! Does anyone have any tips regarding cleaning the underside and generally keeping the rust at bay during the winter months Sent from my LYA-L09 using Tapatalk

    Does anybody use their prodrive as a daily? I am looking at the 3.2, appreciate the mpg won't be great but otherwise are they an OK dd proposition? Thanks
  4. What's your daily commute?

    Poll Room
    I was pondering the other day that I'm doing a more regular trip to our Manchester office, and was chatting to folk over there about their commute. Anyway, what's your journey distance, mode of transport, time taken, and general feeling about the commute? Poll is distance...

  6. 166 2.0TS as a daily drive...??

    Alfa 164 & 166
    Hello all Without boring everyone to death, I was in the market for an Alfa 159 2.0JTDm - I really do miss having an Alfa as my daily drive. However.... they are really outside my price bracket & the ones I can kind-of afford are pretty leggy. Then I saw this rather lovely 166 TS for sale from...
  7. Thinking of getting a Giulietta as my daily driver! Some questions first though!

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi all, Been stalking the forums (and using the handy search function) but still have a few questions / concerns that I hope you helpful lot can assist me with. The wife's ST line fiesta is coming off lease shortly and I have been 'allowed' to get a new car as my daily (she is taking my focus...
  8. Alfa Romeo GTV as a daily

    General Alfa Discussion
    Hi all, I'm looking to change my much loved Alfa Romeo 156 2.0 JTS Lusso, for a GTV 2.0 TS Lusso. I currently do between 10-12K a year, but was wondering as to whether or not the GTV would be suited to a lot of motorway use, and the occasional A/B road. I've got a budget of £1500-2000 (ish)...
  9. A GTV6.... as a daily runner?

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Morning all (well it's morning now), I am looking at buying another classic Alfa and to be honest 3 cars is a bit extreme as I live in a terrace street. I currently have a rented garage but I am not prepared to rent two... that's financially daft. So I was wondering of selling my Alfa 159 ti...
  10. Best shocks for a daily driver 75

    Alfa 75, RZ, SZ
    Hello from Houston Texas. I'm needing new shocks for my daily driver 75 (Milano over here). It's a 2.5V6 with stock suspension components. Does anyone on this list have experience with the oil filled shocks sold by EB spares. The EB website doesn't list a brand. It just says standard oil...
  11. my daily turned into a project car (GTV)

    Introduce Yourself
    Hey everyone. my love of cars in particular Italian cars has come from my dad who is madly into his fiats. which has given me plenty of time under the bonnet of cars. I have owned my 1999 alfa GTV (my second car) for a few years now and have loved it. even with the constant banter from friends...
  12. Can I run a 26 year old supercar as a daily driver?

    General Motoring Discussion
    Those of you with long memories may recall that earlier this year I had two moments of weakness at the classic auctions and came away with the '69 Alfa Berlina and an '87 Porsche 928S4. The Berlina has been a blast all year and I am understanding the obtuse attraction. But what of the 928...
  13. MG\Truimph almost daily runner

    General Motoring Discussion
    I've been toying with the idea for the past couple of years of going back to basics driving by purchasing an MG Midget or Triumph Spitfire and using it on almost a daily routine. I don't commute as I work offshore however I do get around (cough). I think my biggest issue is I live in an...

  15. Thinking of buying a series 3 spider and using as a daily drive. Is this a crazy?

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Hi, a series 3 spider has caught my eye. I'm not rich enough to have a second car and wondered if these cars are usable as a daily drive. The oldest spider I've owned was a 2001 v6 which I loved, not got any experience of the classics though so advice welcomed.

  19. GT 3.2 daily driver. Mad or Magic.

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Well here goes... the last daily driver, fiat stilo jtd, has died! I now use the GT everyday instead of once or twice a week. Whilst the mileage will go up I brought the car to enjoy it so I'm going to make the most of it :) The fuel is an obvious concern, but not taxing, insuring and running...
  20. My daily drive 146

    Motoring Images
    I've sold my beautifull GTV Cup 2 months ago (to buy a Lotus Elise...) and so I bought an 146 1.6L TS I'm very pleased with it ! It has 120.000km, and in quite good conditions (except a bump on the rear, I will probably fix it later...) How she was when I bought it 2 months ago (after a good...
