  2. First Alfa due Saturday

    Introduce Yourself
    Hello all, I should be getting my first Alfa (Giulietta) in 4 days, :blabla: a used one but there you go. It's nearly the spec I have been looking for, Alfas themselves are a bit of a rarity around here as there are not many dealers local.
  3. Goodbye remap due to new emission limits?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    My remapped (up to 210bhp from 170) 147 Ducati Corse just scraped its way through its first MOT since the new lower emission limit. The tester said that I'll probably be lucky to get it though another test the way it is. Is this likely to be mainly due to the remap, or could it be something...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I'm after putting KW2 coilovers on it that I bought from Autolusso. They were used but apparently in good condition. Now the car is failing for having a suspension imbalance on the front. There is an imbalance limit of 30%. Mine was 43%. It also says I have a worn wish bone. Could this be...
  5. Credit where credits due

    Alfa Giulia
    Took my QF into the service centre at Battersea today to have the boot lid / bumper issue looked at. In a bizarre coincidence, I was discussing with the service advisor about how you rarely see Guilias of any description on the road, never mind QFs when he said he’d only ever seen one parked up...

    As mentioned in the water ingress in ecu thread, I had a CEL the other day just before the car went in for the 6117 software update. Had a call from service desk today to say the update has been done and the CEL was due to the connector coming loose on the left bank dump valve. I'll speak to...

  13. GTA Selespeed locks in gear due to high temp?

    Alfa GTA
    A friend of mine is considering buying a 156 GTA Selespeed. The Selespeed on the car has a curious problem: If the engine becomes hot, the gear box locks up in the current gear selected. Fix so far: pull to the side of the road, let the car cool down, and then it´s good to go again... Is this a...

    Title says it all really. Wife's Leon failed However last year, the year before, the year before and so on all passed. The plates were supplied as legal 3D font. Apparently the ANPR systems are not recognising sufficient number plates to check the Road Tax !

    I've just got my renewal for my AA Silver membership - £388! This includes Roadside, Home start, Relay and Breakdown Repair. This is for both cars. Does anyone have a suggestion for a better deal? Surprising I didn't actually use the AA last year - I must be slipping!

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi guys, I need to get a rear wheel changed but At the tyre place they couldn't remove the locking nuts, the nut/key is worn and it just doesn't bite so slips round. I ordered a alloy wheel nut remover but there's not enough room for it to fit around the nut. Im hoping it's original alfa one...
