  3. Intermittent loss of drive

    Alfa Giulietta
    My warranty is coming to an end soon, and I have lived with an issue since buying my G this time last year. Just wondering if I should get it looked at before the end of warranty or if it's just a thing. When sitting around 2k revs, usually in 6th on a motorway, i experience a very quick and...

  6. Splitting Drive shaft to replace CV boot

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Evening All, I'm in the process of doing many jobs to the GT JTD, one of which is changing all the CV boots. Ive done the driver's side by removing the outer end (with the spline) of the drive shaft by knocking it off the shaft. However, I have tried to do the passenger side shaft in the same...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I replaced the drive shaft on passenger side yesterday really struggled to get it in after reading some instructions on the paperwork that came with it,it stated that the clip on the end wasn't important so I removed it. Went in easy put it all back together now I have a leak where the shaft...
  12. What do 159 1.9JTDms really drive like?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hard to quantify I guess but here goes.... Some people comment on how great the 159 is and say that they drive so well, the engine is great and so on. I've had mine for around 16 months now and I just can't warm to it. If I drive it hard it's powerful and quite fast but for general use it...
  13. A drive in an S-Class Mercedes

    General Motoring Discussion
    For some two decades of chatting with them, I've heard drivers of E-Class taxis across Europe comment that their car isn't a patch on the S-Class. To them, the S-Class is The Boss. One even claimed that the suspension on the S-Class was so cleverly designed that, at speed, 'all of the car's...

    Alfa 164 & 166
    Hello all Without boring everyone to death, I was in the market for an Alfa 159 2.0JTDm - I really do miss having an Alfa as my daily drive. However.... they are really outside my price bracket & the ones I can kind-of afford are pretty leggy. Then I saw this rather lovely 166 TS for sale from...

  18. Front wheel drive... lorries

    General Motoring Discussion
    this is probably a super stupid question (hey, i'm asking it... you know what to expect :)) car companies make many fair justifications as to why a car maybe front or rear wheel drive. is there a reason why lorries (32 tonne plus etc) are rwd? Is it simply simpler to design/make them rwd from...
  19. On my drive to work today.....

    General Alfa Discussion
    I saw 4 Giulia's, 4 Mito's and 3 Giulietta's. I also saw a couple of 159's and a 156. It's only a short 13 mile commute and that's the most I've seen in one go... Obviously selling a few around Stoke.
