  4. Dear battery!

    Alfa Giulietta
    After 1 week of rest, I came back to car and it had a flat battery. Was perfect up to that never sounded laboured while starting. Car jumped into life on first turn always. Is it possible for battery to die so quickly? I meant was never sluggish. It has exide EFB EL700 start-stop. Came across...

  6. Oh dear! What have I done to my Brera!

    ICE & Blue&Me
    Just changing the Alfa head unit to my JVC Bluetooth unit that I had in my now deceased GT over to my beatiful newly aquired 56 Brera using the harness from the GT. Frustratingly the JVC unit wouldn't work. I then refitted the original Alfa unit, but that doesn't work either. I checked the feed...

  8. Oh dear ... Kerbed my wheel :(

    Alfa Giulietta
    Was in a rush to get to the cinema last night and carelessly swung my car into a side of the road to park and heard a very loud grinding noise The result: Had a quote for £96 for full refurb here in Nottingham at the wheel specialist he seems to have a very good rep so I'll just take it...
  9. Oh dear. Oh no. (QTronic oil leak)

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I took a look under the bonnet of my 2.4 Ti QTronic yesterday and noticed some oil residue to the right of and below the main plastic engine cover. It looks like it might be coming from the gearbox. In the last couple of months I've started hearing the gearbox whine as I accelerate and...
  10. Dear Mercedes

    General Motoring Discussion
    Why oh why do you let your small commercial vehicles rust like they do? Walking past a 10 reg Mercedes panel van this morning and every panel had signs of rot, the rear doors were going rotten at the bottom of the doors, the leading edge of the bonnet was manky ! Even the top of the windscreen...
  11. Oh dear what shall I do

    General Alfa Discussion
    I am sure this has been done before. I am yearning to own an Alfa again after previously owned two. I presently have a 2006 Subaru Legacy RE estate, which I do like and is very reliable, but it doesn't excite me in the way Alfa's do. My delemma is which one to buy post 2009? Do I get the...
  12. Oh dear

    Alfa GTA
    Just at a magic show at the little ones school. Unfortunately shortly after we parked up, as we were walking away from the car, there was a loud crunching noise. Car in front, complete with towbar, has reversed straight into the GTA. It's another parent from the school. Got all details, so...
  13. Oh dear, I've broken my radio ignition and door lock button light :(

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    So I decided last week I would finally connect my dash cam under the cigar lighter socket so I could plug my phone charger in, while trying to remove the center console part on the floor (before realising I didn't need to as I could get enough access without) I found a cable that goes to the...

  18. Oh dear; what a frustrating site

    Introduce Yourself
    I've been a member here now for over a year; only visit if I need help or advice. It seems you need to have nothing else to do but talk rubbish in order to be valued; whilst I'm good at that, unfortunately I don't have the time. I'm trying to put an advert in for a 2.4 JTD 20V sump but it seems...
