  1. Q-tronic working as designed?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi all, I am the proud owner of a 159 2.4 JTDm Q-tronic, built in 2010. I have had her since June of this year and I love her to bits, even though she recently let me down with broken studs of the exhaust manifold. A common failure, yet no less expensive to fix… I have a question about the...

  4. Designed in half the time ; that's good?

    Alfa Giulia
    Sergio is proud of the fact the new Alfa was designed in twenty four months! The Mito was done in a big hurry and it shows. What's he playing at talking like this to the press?

  8. Will this Coilover designed for Spider fit my GTV?

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Funny.. K&W does not have any for GTV, but Spider on the other hand: Coilover suspension - 15215005 - KW coilover variant 2 inox-line - KW Online product finder, direct from the manufacturer. Will it work on a GTV?
  9. I hope there's a special place in hell for who designed the Brembo brakes..

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    ..a whole afternoon of pure agony, trying to remove those bloody pins!! :cry: A brake change should be a matter of a couple of hours, but no, those little ba$tard pins won't budge without fighting.. I managed to do one side when all hopes were starting to vanish, so somehow comforted by the...
  10. designed to fail ?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    this is a pic of my 147 rear hatch actuator............little motor works fine but the plastic/nylon corkscrew bit has sheared clean away from the drive cog.......for a car that relies on this device for rear boot access (i.e. apart from crawling in the boot to release) it's very poor and I...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT

    opened up the bonnet today to admire the engine, lifted up my head and whacked it on the dam grill:rolleyes: im going to have to remember about that:eek: how many others have done the same?:cheese:
  17. 159 no longer designed by Giugiaro

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Ever since putting my deposit down on my 159, I thought the "Design Giugiaro" stickers near the front wheels looked crap. This is irrespective of the car colour. Anyway, I kind of ignored it until today. While washing the car I noticed that the one on the drivers side was peeling off. A careful...
  18. FS: Kenwood subwoofers (designed for Sprint)

    Alfa 33, Sud & Sprint
    SOLD: Kenwood subwoofers (designed for Sprint) SOLD I currently have a custom sealed box containing 4 Kenwood subs for sale. It has been specifically designed for an Alfa Romeo Sprint. The box is small enough not to inhibit the removal of the spare tyre and has a special cut out to allow for...
  19. ALFA / BMW designed by the same person

    General Alfa Discussion
    Right hands up who's heard of Chris Bangle? He's the nutter resposible for the Z4, the new 5 and 7 series BMW's and various forthcoming BMW abortions like the 6 series. He also designed the 145. eek! Maybe Alfa and BMW's are more closly related than we think. Who knows, maybe he had a hand...
  20. who designed this daft bit then

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I've always though that the filler cap was one of the most stupidly designed details on the 147. Yesterday for reasons I couldnt work out having refuelled the car I couldnt get the cap to stay back on, it took ten minutes and the attempt of another alfa owner to get it to work. Neither of us...
