  1. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Today was a big day …................i drove my first Alfa :) Been on here a few months asked loads of questions (thanks!) but now I have the funds to get going so today I went to look at a one. Sounded perfect in the add 12 months MOT, full history, sport pack, red:wow: Took it for a decent...
  2. General Alfa Discussion
    All, For anyone going to Milan in June, I found out that RIAR is organizing a drive on the track at Monza. I don't have many details, I think it will be a fast pace car type run in large groups of cars (up to 80) rather than a full track event. It is taking place on Thursday 24th June at Monza...

    I am quite bored, I thought I might share this with you. The other day, I was driving along some B roads and as I just put some fuel, I reset the comp and concetrated on "economy" drive, gentle on the throtle, even more gentle on the brakes. Run was around 20 miles. Average speed around 30 mph...

    Would just be interested in what people would go for if they didn't drive an Alfa.. I'd probably have one of these instead.. What would you have?
  5. Alfa 164 & 166
    OK, this is turning into the job from hell!!! Anyone know how you get the throttle cable out of the bulkhead? It's dead easy to take it off at the engine end, but I'm seriously flummoxed as to how it comes off at the other end! The outer cable seems to disappear up behind the brake servo and...

  8. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I have a problem with my N/S driveshaft assembly, the inner CV boot is split and has emptied the grease all over the subframe etc. What parts do I need to sort it out? Do i need the entire driveshaft assembly or can I just get and inner CV/shaft and fit just that. I am having a conflict of...
  9. Alfa MiTo
    Off this morning to see Mito at Alexanders at Stockton on Tees.Never driven an Alfa since a 1750 GTV in 1973 ! But still got the bug and want a Mito. It will be a second car and replace a BMW Mini One.Equivalent Mito is, I suppose, the 75bhp one.Live near York and Mito seems a rare sight round here.

    Thought I'd share a video taken yesterday of me pootling down the pit straight at Goodwood... YouTube - Alfa Romeo 147 GTA at Goodwood It's a new style CSC rear silencer with a straight through Ragazzon centre section. If you're feeling technical, it was 92db at 5500rpm on the noise test...

    Antibes, France to Grenoble, France - Google Maps :p:p:p:p So off the autoroute the 1750 has much more available power in the 50-90kph range and is real fun to blatt past 2-3 cars where the 2.2 could only manage 1-2 for similar gaps in on-coming traffic. :thumbs:

  17. Alfa Giulietta
    i know it's a month or so too soon for press road tests of the Giulietta, but does anyone have any inside word on what it's like? Of course Alfa says 'it leads the class' so we can ignore them; but has anyone got a mate who knows a mate who spoke to a chap who's had a spin in one? Surely someone...
