    So first off, it's not my Alfa thankfully. However we're pretty sure my dads car has a leaking heater matrix. Water in the cabin which is not fresh and the car is losing coolant etc. Now he's tried to book it in with the dealer (car is under warranty) and they can't get him until next week...

    A boring report, but some important work. Shockingly, you are 8 times safer on an M-Way than on a single carriageway road. But Motorways and A roads account for nearly half accidents, although only 10% of the road network. An excellent example of the joy of statistics, both facts are true...

    Ok, so I was driving my 156 2.5 V6 down a road with speed humps, slowly. went over a bump, accelerated away and suddenly heard the sound of hissing fluid as if a pipe had burst. The hissing lasted about 5 seconds and stopped once pressure had balanced it seems. Fearing the worst, I coaxed the...

    I've ordered a lowering kit, but a friend pointed out that lowered cars are by far less safe in an accident. Fith gear conducted the test below. I would be interested to know what AO think about this? Cheers. Fifth Gear - height crash test - YouTube

    Driving home from work through Weybridge this evening I witnessed a knob driving a VW Sharan minicab (AW03 AOF). Number one: He was parked on the side of the road, facing the oncoming traffic. Nothing coming in his direction, he set off which involved pulling across a car coming towards him on...

    Hello All! On trying to get to the bottom of why the fuel gauge on my 02' 147 2.0 Selespeed wasn't working I thought i'd take a look at the fuel pump/level sender connections that are underneath a black cover under the rear seats... And found something pretty awful really, it seems like...

    Today my selespeed wouldn't select a gear whilst at a railway level crossing, lucky enough though it would go into reverse. I had my 6 year old daughter in the car. How many people are having problems with selespeed. It is dangerous and I urge everyone to write or phone their local trading...
