  1. Only 1 disappointment

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Just before Christmas I bought myself a lovely 2007 159 3.2 Q4 Lusso in black with 18" TI wheels, Tan Leather, Connect+, low mileage for £7K I immediately fell in love with this car, for years I've driven V6 166's and was a bit concerned the 159 wouldn't measure up, I am pleased to say it more...
  2. disappointment with paintwork quality of ’57 plate Alfa Romeo GT Blackline

    General Alfa Discussion
    Currently I have flaking / peeling paintwork lifting from the bodywork in two areas. My local Alfa dealer advises that the paintwork is only covered under warranty (which timely has recently expired). As I understand from a paintwork specialist this type of issue is caused due to ineffective...
  3. Disappointment with Brera

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi Guys, I just wanted to share my disappointment with the Brera since I have owned it and wondered if any of you out there feel the same way. I bought my 3.2 V6 Q4 about 4 months ago now. I sold my GT 1.9JTD which was a lovely car. I'm 21 and I have had an Alfa romeo since I was 19, so I am a...
  4. MiTo Disappointment

    Alfa MiTo
    I was hoping my next thread this weekend was going to be an update at the pleasure of receiving my MiTo TCT which was due to arrive at the dealership about now after being told last week that it arrived in the UK and was awaiting transportation, instead i received a phonecall today from the...
  5. Suspension disappointment

    North West
    Purchased a second-hand set of lowering spings off ebay. Supposed to be Supersport lowering springs (30mm) to fit a 156 2.0 TS, but just been told by a garage that they don't fit :( Not happy. Apparently, the guy who sold them is also a member of these forums: aquamineralli So, just been onto...
  6. Everytime I go to a garage it ends in disappointment!

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Today went for 4 wheel alignment. Yes it was way out - yes they fixed it. But now it pulls slightly to the left. Why oh why is it that people cannot do a 100% job??? Maybe I'm just a perfectionist who set himself up for constant disappointment. Now I have the whole - take it back and tell...
  7. My Alfa Disappointment

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    This is going to sound sad but it's true. :eek: I've always wanted an Alfa but never dared. Having made the leap of faith I purchased my GT in February. I purchased with trepidation and excitement and had prepared myself for a journey of love and heart break. :cry: Well it hasn't happened. I...
  8. Brera disappointment

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Viewed a 2.4JTD Brera yesterday but was unable to get in a driving position where I did not have my head knocking on the roof! When looking straight ahead I was aware of the lining on the side of my head, but as soon as i tried to look to the right my head was banging of the trim. Had the seat...
  9. AAARGH!!! the disappointment

    General Alfa Discussion
    my wife and i just collected the new (ish) sportwagon. Its beautiful, but... as she was driving it home it became apparent that the engine was misfiring badly; it would go from stuttering along with no power, to full normal performance, and somewhere in between at random. Called the dealership...
  10. diesel disappointment

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    :( well got my self an alfa today, 156 2.4jtd made in 2000, and it was a real disappointment. I think it must be broken in a not too bad kind of way. It is quite quick in some conditions (mostly no load) but shortly after 3K rpm it starts to die really bad or when i got to a hill, no matter...
  11. Selespeed power start disappointment!

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, I must admit, even though the 147 Selespeed is a fantastic car to drive at speed, I find the power take-off from traffic lights to be a lttle disappointing. I think it has to do with the clutch being slow to release. I absolutely love the comment on page 126 of my owners manual...
