    To go out in style and to annoy the pants off a few environmentalists on here - What can you do to the 2.4 Jtdm engine to MAXIMISE power output and stuff the emissions? EGR DELETE - Done SWIRL FLAPS - Gone REMAP -done DPF removal - This will need to wait till I get it through the MOT in a few...

  6. Introduce Yourself
    Hi All, Been going round in circles with the idea "do I buy a 159 or not" for 6 months or so now. I am the type of person that once I say I want it (car wise and within reason!) I then normally go and buy one! So some how I have managed to fend off the urge for 6 months, but meh. Not going to...

  8. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    After not driving the GT for 7 weeks due to broken clutch foot, I'm now back in it and fallen in love all over again! Now, there's a mechanic near work who owns a 5 series 3.0d with a full quad exhaust. It sounds superb, nothing like a diesel. Does anyone here have experience of a ragazzon or...

    Is anyone running their DERV on vegetable oil? I've got a 2001 156 2.4 JTD. Tesco are selling a litre of veg oil for less than a litre of diesel. So far I've had 1 say no you can't because its not a common rail fuel system and 1 saying the exact opposite.. Confused much.. Thanks

    Im in need of a 156 1.9 jtd mjet 16v near side drive shaft. Does it have to be off this exact model or will an 8v fit? or one off a 147 / gt?
  11. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Inspired by Ghostydogs recent upgrade to the Berea S exhaust on his 2.2 Brera, I was wondering if anyone has gone down the road of fitting twin Brera exhausts to a 159? The boxes seem a different shape, so there would be issues with fitting, but has it/can it be done? Have had a look and could...

    Rejoice! Here in DERVland France a number of issues have started discussions in newspapers and on TV about reducing DERV usage. False economies for people buying new DERVs (especially small ones) who don't do many kilometres. (Cars are more expensive and the price of DERV has rocketed.)...

    How come there's such a big choice for Dervists? The 159 range seems to have loads: 120 & 150 BHP 1.9 200 & 210 BHP 2.4 Mind you, the mark up is about €2225 for what is basically a remap :eek: :eek: :confused:

    BMW plans to rewrite diesel performance rules this autumn when it launches the fastest-accelerating diesel engine on the UK market. The twin-turbo version of the existing 3.0-litre diesel will be first installed in the 5-series, badged 535d allowing it to hit 62mph in a staggering 6.6sec. Power...
