  2. Rear Bumper Damage

    Alfa Giulietta
    Goof afternoon all, I bought this lovely Giulietta with some rear bumper damage about a month ago and have finally decided to get my head around it and get it sorted. Passed the MOT with no major issues, apart from that knocked out reflector on the lower left that had to be replaced. It’s...
  3. Where do I stand on damage caused by tyre shop?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Morning all, as per the title, the tyre shop I use has damaged all 4 of my wheels - and no, it's not the usual suspect. A bit of background, I had my wheels professionally painted last March at around £90 a corner, and the wheels have remained largely unscathed - apart from a curbing on one...
  4. Brera 3.2 S suspension damage, help

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi Everyone, I previously posted having purchased a 2009 3.2 S with 57K miles. It has some damage to the front OS suspension. I have bought cars before with similar damage. They have typically had pressed steel arms so it is easy to see damage, they bend or snap. The forged or cast arms on...

    Alfa Giulietta

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Someone reversed into the side of my car the other night. It was in a car park so fairly low speeds involved. I've attached a pic of the damage done to my rear offside wheel.

    Alfa Giulietta
    Been happily driving the last 18months taking my Giulietta 2012 from 30k to 64k. Noticed a slight hesitation around a point in the rev range, just below 2000rpms I think.

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Right so I was taking a look at the rear subframe and saw that the rear camber adjustment extrusion on the subframe has snapped.

    Alfa 75, RZ, SZ
    Hello, I have owned other Alfas but never an Alfa 75. I have always wanted one and now one has come up for sale. However it has rear quarter damage from the rear door back. My question is, "are Alfa 75s tripple skinned in the rear quarter as other Alfas?" "And how easy or difficult...

    Upon dismantling my 3.0 I noticed damage on the rear of the crank pulley and on the engine itself. Sorry haven't mastered the art of posting photos yet. As the bottom end had gone, allbeit a big end, I thought this may have been caused by excessive end float but none is obvious and it is...
