Yesterday I had a test drive in a 2 year old Misano Blue Veloce, not a long one and the roads were wet but enough to get a sense of the car...
First impressions were the turbines are much better in the flesh than pictures, although who wouldn't want QV style alloys. The colour is amazing even...
Has anyone else experienced this condition or understand what it is..?
If you pull up on an incline with the front facing up hill, then hold on foot brake, sometimes when you release the foot brake and drive off there's a slap in the drive like it picks up and it's a very noticeable...
a year ago I purchased an alfa 147 (right Hand Drive ) and been restoring it slowly to its former glory. Most stuff has been solved and getting near completion but I have a problem getting the original Factory installed alarm working. Originally I could not even find the location...

12 years old today and apart for the first 3 months owned by HR Owen I have been the sole driver
Still a very enjoyable drive and a good looking car

I´m taking away the gearbox on my 147 1.6ts and now i´m at the point of taking away the drive shafts but I´m not sure how to do it, I have in front of me two kind of bolts, allen and hexagonal.
I don´t want to change anything, just to take away.
Can somebody explain how to do it? thanks!
The drive shaft is stuck in the hub on my jts. The securing nut will not budge. Tried heat, tried breaker bar and it just wont budge. Need to fit new cv boot but stuck. Any ideas? Is the drive shaft and hub unique to jts or are they compatible with other alfa models? Any ideas much appreciated...
Hi all. Can anyone help me please. I just changed the clutch on my Alfa 159, 1.8 Petrol, and when putting the drive shaft back in I noticed i'd pulled a couple of wires in the engine sensor tucked in behind the drive shaft bearing just beside the altenator. Can anyone shed any light as to what...
I'm trying to reinstall the short intermediate drive shaft that goes between the oil cooler housing and the gear box. It feels like the shaft is comin up against something in the gear box.
Any ideas or trick to doing this? The engine is out of the car.
I'm new to Alfa ownership and the forum having recently bought a Alfa Giulietta 1750 TBi Cloverleaf.
It's just pinged a fault code P0443-13 Evaporation Control Valve Drive.
I've run the diagnostic using Multiecuscan and the valve clicks on and off suggesting it's working (or...
Like the title says, doing this tomorrow.
Had a good old trawl around the forum and picked up a few pearls of wisdom. Anyone got any last minute nuggets I need to be aware of? Mileage is 65k
I am looking to get rid of my Audi A6 saloon as it is now impractical for my hobby and family (triathlon needs bike space, and roof bars ruin the audi roof with a scuffed footprint, and need an estate for the new dog).
I have had a quick look over ebay and autotrader at what 159 estates...

Coming up to VT point on my BMW and, after owning 6 between me and the wife, most of which have had issues, I think it's time to broaden my horizons. Looking at a Giulia Veloce.

I'm sorry, I asked this question a long time ago and nothing was done about it.
However, I now have a car that will probably be scrapped in june ( saxo, not my 159), so i'd like to give both my young adult kids a few lessons.
I only want to teach them the basics ...driving forward and...

This weekend I have had to replace the offside lower suspension arm due to the ball joint failing the MOT. I did the nearside one a couple of years ago without issue. I managed to do the nearside without removing the Disc and Calliper so I thought using the same method would work on the offside...
