    So, only about 15kms out of Sofia, en route the 435km trip to the Black Sea town of Kiten, the engine spat the dummy at 130-140kph. There may have been some prior noise, but I had the window down and the radio on, and didn't pick it up. Anyway, trucked to my Alfa service and instant diagnosis on...
  6. Brera QV. Fuel, water and oil temp gauges dead.

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    The entire cluster is dead - so dead in fact that the fuel and water needles couldn't even be arsed to drop to zero. No illumination either. Checked the fuses (39, 42 and 49) just in case there's separate power to them, but they're fine. I'd also hoped that maybe fitting a new stereo a while...

    Hi all. Bought another 156 SW (04 facelift) recently. Done a lot of work to sort out a lot of problems but one is proving a little harder to sort. Car has no alarm. Previous owner says it was disconnected in the search for a battery drain which turned out to be the connect nav phone module (...

  16. Is my GT dead?

    I'm worried this is finally it for my 1.9 GT (2005). After my daily hour commute, I pulled up to a junction and the engine died. Said VDC failure and Immobiliser failure, and just turned over and over. Had it towed to my mechanic, who thought it was the engine ECU. He says he has fitted a part...
