  1. Alfa Giulietta
    Collect a G Veloce, Alfa Red Metallic, 11 plate on Friday from Knaresborough :inlove: Now what to call her? Need to get to an autoelectricians to see about the 12V in the cubby hole so I don't ruin her looks trailing cables everwhere for the satnav.
  2. General Motoring Discussion
    Well after much deliberation, cogitation and rumination today I test drove my 3 shortlisted replacements for the Scirocco Porsche 911 Carrera S PDK 2008 (08 plate) Stunning stunning car, solid and prestige as you'd expect, handling and performance very good, spec was a little poor and it was...
  3. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    The paperwork was signed off this morning so from next Wednesday we'll be an all Alfa family as the Bravo is being replaced with a 2.0 JTDm 159 Ti SW in 8C Red :D. I'll get proper pics up next week but this is the beastie:
  4. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    I was walking from the car park to the football (Bury FC) and spotted a doppleganger for my car (black with horsehoes), when walking up behind I thought the boot lid was poorly aligned, when I got closer I thought it may be open so I checked, it was! I closed it :thumbs:

  6. General Motoring Discussion
    After much deliberation, and being cajoled down a particular path by my new job's 90 mile daily commute, I've finally got myself a new car to replace my lovely (but rather thirsty) Alfa 166 V6. She's a MkV VW Golf GT TDi 140 DSG. :cool: Not an Alfa, granted, but I needed something that would...

  9. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    I posted the link below about 10 days ago. I am pleased to say the deed is done and the car is now snugly in my garage. It still needs to be transferred into my name though. I...
  10. General Alfa Discussion
    Yes, I know I now drive a Vauxhall but I still like to help little old ladies who can't get the fuel filler cap off their MiTo :thumbs: Yesterday I was filling up the VXR8 (a regular occurance :lol:) and noticed a MiTo driving in as I was going in to pay. Was walking out when I heard a little...
  11. Alfa GTA
    I just flashed my lights furiously at a silver (ish - gabiano blue?) 147GTA going eastbound on the A31 between Winchester and Ropley to warn of an impending scamera van waiting for him at the top of the dual-carriageway hill. He got the message and pulled back in. Anyone here? Nice car anyway :cool:
  12. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I know some may think it sacrilege but I've had a towbar fitted to my 2007MY GT. It was fitted by Trident Trailers in Maidstone Towbars r us (who fit towbars for AR dealers Thames and Medway). It is a GDW bar that, unlike the factory bar made by Brink (Ellerbi), there is no visible bumper...
  13. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    At long last I have finally ordered my 147. No going back now. The deposit cheque and order form is in the post. For those who are interested. I ordered the car through Smart Alfa. Zero Seven warned me about not taking their delivery times on trust and I heeded his warning, but as they are...
