    As you'll recall, last week I parted with some hard-earned cash to buy a Fiat Barchetta for a weekend/fun car. I've been looking for the 'perfect' car for many months. :cool: After 6 days of ownership (2 of which when it was sat at the airport!!) I began to realise that the car wasn't 100%...

  4. The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Head gasket has gone in a big way on the Matta :eek: It's pressurising and coughing water and exhaust fumes(?) out of the radiator. Obviously I haven't found the secret of combustable water either..... Hope I can fix it quickly, lots of events to go to :( wrinx

    Just when things were bad enough with my clutch situation it has now become worse :( :( :rant: I was advised this afternoon that there are no Clutch Kits for my 147 Selespeed in Australia and has to be ordered from Italy......... I now have to sit tight for further 1.5 weeks, which at the...
  6. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    After my local dealership could not figure out what was wrong with my clutch for 3.5 days it was revealed in a 30 second phone call this morning. Of course the 1st part was the good side to the story.... " We will be replacing your clutch bearings under warranty but then :eek: :eek: :eek...

    I will post a pic later, but can any of my Irish friends help with this. The rear door is dented in a bit, and a fair amount of paint gone. Is it possible to panel beat and re-spray, or do I need a new door. It is quite bad, I'm afraid. And it's a 156, btw. Great start to the weekend..... :(
  8. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hello all, just had a big service on the GTV and asked if they could re-adjust my driver side window as its pretty loud with wind noise at anything over about 60mph. I've had this pretty much all the time since i brought it and it gets a bit annoying on long motorway cruises.. The passenger...
  9. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    My 147 went in yesterday for my "koppelingspedaal" it a peeping sound and they needed to take it apart and put new grease all over (tried to do that without taking it apart before). Now when i departed after about 40km i suddenly got the message ABS off-line, and VDC off-line so i went back this...

    Due to a damn kamikaze bird (and i do mean the feathered kind) that showed up out of nowhere and headed straight for my windshield, I now have two kerbed alloyes and a blown tyre front right rant The tyre is already ordered, so that's not a problem (although the lease co might wine a bit...
  11. Alfa 145 & 146
    My car (145 1.8ts) has just failed its 1st MOT due to emissions. The CO2 level for the fast idle test should >0.3% mine came in @ over 8.0%. So I am not a happy bunny. The MOT Tester said that it was dumping in a load of fuel in. He also said that it was idling erratically and would have to...

    I went to my mechanic today with the drawings of a Eaton supercharger, we constructed a model in wood, and then tried to make it fit. Two things: 1.... No way it fits! :mad: 2.... My car uses a chain, and the SC is made for belt. BUT, my mech suggested i went to talk to a guy he knows that...
  13. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello All, Just thought I'd share my very recent experience with you. Last month I purchased my Selespeed (2000 W with 60,100 on clock) from a well known, supposedly reputable, dealer. Part of the agreement was that I'd get a FULL 60,000 mile service done before I picked up the car. The...

    Damn that Blaupunkt crap, shιtty stupid junk thing.. :mad: Sometimes i wonder why on hell they exist as a company. No, i m not gonna mention the legendary (as Patrick says) "cancheck" error message, or the bad radio reception or or.. I decided to upgrade my Lanzar subwoofer to...
  15. Alfa 145 & 146
    My 145 has that silly water-based-paint-with-a-laquer-on-top mess that Alfa, in all its wisdom, thought was a good idea for a while. A some point my front wings and bonnet have been replaced / resprayed and, of course, the colour match is terrible. Also, different bits of the car are fading at...
