    Alfa 164 & 166

Parked it overnight Thurs on our (admittedly) steep drive, next day loads of water in the passenger & rear LHS footwells after heavy rain...
  2. 156 Sportwagon doesn't mix with dry grass!

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    After a bit of fun around the paddock track, the 156 Sportwagon decided to set the grass on fire. We had it more or less under control by the time the Fire Brigade arrived but were very grateful to them for ensuring it wasn't going to spring to life again! The offending car is hiding in shame...

  7. Engine bay cleaning, foam? Plus dry shampoo/polish.

    Car Detailing
    Hi all, I normally lurk on the classics lounge but after quite a bit of paint work my engine bay is very dusty on top of the years of oil and grime so it needs a good clean. Can anyone recommend a good product to shift most of this, a friend had suggested a snow foam product but remembering...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello Alfaowners, I am looking for a dry (non-oiled) sport air filter for my JTD. There are a lot of oiled filters but i don't want to mess up my mass flow sensor.

  12. dry twin clutch tranmission

    4C & 4C Spider
    Is anyone familiar with or have owned a alfa with the dry twin clutch transmission which is the tranny being used in the 4C.

  16. Chilly & (almost) dry at Brooklands.

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    What a treat! I went in my 166, nearly got caught in the queue for Test Hill. Chickened-out, I'm not sure how a Front Wheel Drive auto would cope. Loads&loads&loads of Alfas various...
  17. Dry Sump Set-Up 2.0 TwinSpark 8V

    South Africa
    I am considering a Dry Sump set-up on the 2.0 TS 8V turbo engine we are building. Any recommendations, experience, suggestions will be appreciated. Realize we will not have a lot of accessories to worry about driving (no AC, electric fan, electric tach, etc) so should be relatively simple.
