  1. GTA decision time

    Alfa GTA
    I have put my 147 GTA up for sale on the local Alfa club site (not yet listed) but if it fails to sell I may use it as a part time track car. What problems may I encounter removing rear seats/trim and changing front seats for lighter track seats. My concerns are mainly the airbags and...
  2. Wheels decision

    Alfa GTA
    Well I just got a set of virtually brand new condition teledials with Contis on all round - swapped them for the GT Blackline alloys that were on the car. Thing is I really got used to those Blacklines and I think I prefer them to the original equipment 17" teledials as cool as they are I'm now...
  3. Time to sell the Cup, very hard decision.

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Not a decision I've taken lightly, I almost sold her a couple of months ago but just couldn't bring myself to do it, as I genuinely love the car more than some members of my family. No expense ever spared, if she ever needed anything it got done, in fact even if it wasn't needed it sometimes...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    So for some time I've been facing a difficult decision in which I had to decide if I should buy a 125cc bike to commute on and reduce the miles and commuting costs of the Brera (not old enough to do my full bike licence yet) or to remap the Brera. I've been deliberating it for a while and...

  10. When you look back, what really informs your buying decision?

    South Africa
    I used to pick a price and write down all cars that are R10 000 above and below and compare their specs. The one with the best goes tops, then I would look at exterior design. Is it a Multipla, will it age like the first New Beetle? Then I would look at power Recently though, I would check...

    Alfa 164 & 166
    Looks like I will be departing with my car. I will be putting the details in the classifieds in the next couple of days.
  12. Am I making the right decision with a GQV?

    Alfa Giulietta
    OK. So I'm 22 and am looking at the GQV, 2010/11ish with up to 20,000 on the clock. I asked on PH a few months back about cars to get and they were suggesting things like MX-5s (which I think are a bit girlie), Z4s (well it's a BMW) and so on... I often give people lifts so 4 seats is ideal...
  13. Might have a decision to make ......

    General Motoring Discussion
    Got an email earlier this week from the dealer who sold us Mrs RSK's last two Disco's offering ludicrous discounts on a selection of new stock Jaguar XK and XKRs. Most tempting are a red XKR conv and a white XKR coupe both with plenty of options including the clever active exhaust and the speed...

    Alfa 164 & 166
    Hi folks, About to replace all 4 corners on my 166 T-Spark with 17" Horseshoes. I know the factory size was 225/45/17 but I have been offered 205/45/17 at a good price so I wanted to get some opinions from here before saying yes/no. Any issues with the slightly narrower rubber? The tyres are...
  15. Turbonutters praise and decision time

    South Africa
    Sorry it has taken so long... but a big thanks to G and the crew in Pretoria for solid service work on the GT. It's great to say you can take the car to a specialist and know it's in the best of hands. Now how many places in the world could you say that? Great to meet some more faces behind the...
  16. End of PCP - The Decision

    Alfa MiTo
    3 year PCP contract finishes soon on 1.4 Petrol 95 bhp Mito Turismo Sport and so looking at whether to trade the car in for a new Series 2 or pay the GMFV (Guaranteed Minimum Future Value) and keep the car ticking over. The GMFV stands at £5245 (admin fee included) and so I thought I would...

  18. the decision making process when buying a supercar

    General Motoring Discussion
    Troops, Reading the thread about the Ferrari and AOers' preferences with respect to Ferrari, or McLaren or Lambo etc, I started wondering about the decision making processes that those lucky enough to afford such cars go through when picking a supercar. Do you think it is a purely emotive...
  19. Made my decision. Gt V6

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, after much consideration and looking at your comments I have decided to go for the GT V6 pre tax hike. It was a close run thing with the Brera Q4 but the space in the back was the deciding factor. My daughter is sprouting up and in a couple of years she would need more room. Both great...
