  1. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Since we bought my wife's car 5 years ago and having read the horror stories of subframes turning to dust, I've agonised about whether to remove the undertray. One minute I'm on the verge to binning it as a number of forum members reckon it traps water and is the primary cause of subframe...
  2. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    My 147 JTDm 16v 150hp has ALWAYS had a heavy clutch since I've owned it. I bought it as a one owner car with 60 000km on the clock in 2012. In 2014 the clutch went at about 105 000km and I paid a small fortune at the local dealer to have it sorted. It was reasonably light for a few months but...
  3. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi all, Considering getting a sporty estate for my next car and a 159 Sportwagon is top of my list. There's just one problem, I need to know if it fits in my garage! But nowhere can I see dimensions for the car including how much the mirrors stick out, or indeed how wide it is with them folded...
  4. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Bit of a lazy bones one this, I fancy the idea of LED bulb replacements on my 159. I am not very current on specs etc. Does anybody who has done this already have a definitive list of bulbs and the led replacement?. Also a link or two to good retailers of the bulbs. Just looking for a more...
  5. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    3.2 Oil temp / level sender definitive answer. Some of you may remember that I pulled the 3.2 out of my Brera recently to replace the transfer box and sort out the sub frame. Because of the cost of the oil temperature sender (£350) I decided not to replace it whilst the engine was out. Well...
  6. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi Guys, I've been trying to get the answer to this quesiton over the last few days as I need to replace the 'box in my Spider TS. I believe the Phase One box will fit? Although the connection for the speed sensor should just be ignored / cut off? Will 147 / 156 boxes fit or even JTS boxes...
  7. Alfa Giulietta
    This is a post for all those that hear an awfull groan/creak/squeek coming from the front suspension when going over a bump. The noise is particularly noisy when going over speedbumps or sudden changes in road angle. The noise is caused by the rear bush on both front wishbones: Exhibit A...
  8. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Apologies for my anorakness on this post but these kind of things interest me . Had a Z4coupe for 12 months & rarely saw another on the road & feel like the Brera is a similar car Studied the "howmanyleft.com" webpage which indicates around 1670 Brera's were taxed in the UK the first quarter...
  9. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Right then, i knew eventually i would have to ask the question. Having done a fair bit of searching, i cant come to much of a conclusion with what to do with creaking front suspension. So are my options: 1-Replace with oem 2-Replace with ebay, considering i might be doing them again soon...
  10. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    One of the most asked questions, so written this, (I've edited with some of the comments as needed, please comment on this for any major corrections or additions). Need some Brera info if anyone can help, though much of the information below is relevant to both models Trim Levels Anyone...
  11. Alfa Giulietta
    Guys, I have read every 'steering problem' thread using the search engine on Alfaowner.com and have discovered that it is not just me having to put up with the 'notchy' steering, I have been in touch with a few of you via PM, yet the conclusion seems to be that the dealers can't locate the...
  12. General Alfa Discussion
    So, we are now about 2.5 months away from the end of April when Sergio is due to reveal the final, definitive, five-year plan for Alfa Romeo. This is just enough time to throw the floor wide open for wild speculation as to the contents of this plan. Here's my shot: 4C: - 4C base model to...
  13. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    So my Christmas holiday so far has involved reading almost all the threads regarding 156 suspension. My plan, spend far too much money overhauling my suspension ( 2005 156 2.4jtdm SW veloce ). The rears Nivomats are spent and there's the beginnings of a few knocks from the front. I would like to...
  14. Alfa GTA
    Hey Guys, Does anyone have some definitive figures from before and after with the ACT Plenum? I've managed to acquire one which is pretty much new. My car is standard and currently running 261 with a Red Dot Remap. Curious as to what I should expect.
  15. ICE & Blue&Me
    Evening all, i have googled this to death and searched through these forums so apologies for bringing it up again. I've read several times that folks have managed to pair their iphones with the blue & me and are able to stream music from spotify, 9 times out of 10 having the latest firmware for...
  16. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I have searched and searched but found conflicting info on this subject so i've started this thread to get the answers together on how to decat, which ones to decat and what manifolds fit.... So help me out here, whose done what and have you passed (legitimately, not bunged the tester a...
  17. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, I want to do something about my brakes. Having read all the brake pad recommendations, and needing new front pads and disks shortly, have a fair idea of what to get. Whilst brake performance is fairly decent anyway, I'm keen on a brembo upgrade (305mm). I can buy and refurb the...

    As there can only be one true winner, lets find it here :thumbs:
  19. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, been searching and reading around and some say that adjusting the clutch rod to LESS than 28.5 makes gear changes quicker, up to a point where the clutch is dragging if you take it too far, and adjusting it to MORE than 28.5 makes gear changes take longer. My clutch rod was at 28.5, the...
