  1. Giulia Veloce test drive

    Alfa Giulia
    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...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi, 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...

I managed to do the nearside without removing the Disc and Calliper so I thought using the same method would work on the offside...
