  2. Veloce engine in an early Alfasud

    Alfa 33, Sud & Sprint
    Back in 1989 I took a Twin carb veloce engine and gearbox from a rusted out Sprint Veloce and put it in a 1978 Series 1 Alfasud Ti. I remember this being a pretty quick and easy swap with obvious power gains etc... I am now in a position where I would like to this again, however I can not...
  3. Bit early in the year..but

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Just gauging if any interest out in the community for my winter wheels. Although it seemed a good idea at the time, I've not used them (as I hibernate the Spider in the winter months). So I want to move them on and generate some funds towards the cam belt replacement later this year.
  4. Considering terminating lease early

    Alfa Giulia
    Hi all, I appreciate ending lease agreements early can be a minefield due to termination fees etc But I've borderline had enough of my car. I've had a check engine light 3 times now, the breakdown team have visited me twice at work and once at home. Each time it's a generic code and it...

  6. Early Christmas Present for someone?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    The day has arrived when my GT Blackline has to go. I am setting up my own Business as an electrician and need to get a van. I've had the car nearly 3 years and had very few problems. I would like it her to go to an enthusiast who would appreciate her as much as I have done. I'am not under any...
  7. Trading in early on PCP

    Alfa Giulia
    Has anyone traded in their Giulia early on a PCP deal? I am only 3 months into Veloce ownership and loving it but I can't help thinking I should have pushed the boat out for a QF. The dealer told me I would likely get calls after 12 months offering to change the car. Has anyone on here done...

    I have been working with a guy in Italy on some reproduction fabrics for the 33 P4 Recaro seats and the early 33 16v seats and am looking to gauge interest to see if there is a demand to go into full production. The photo below shows the original fabric at the bottom and the reproduction...

  11. Crank pulley - early symptoms?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi, Not whether I should refer to it as resonance or (very) fine vibration I can feel when putting my left foot to the rest. Like someone is tickling with a feather. I can't see/feel any cracks in the rubber-metal engine mounts (2 upper, 2 lower). So I'm suspecting the front pulley now, has...

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I have a 3.2 GTV that has just had its 12th Birthday and has covered just under 50k miles.

  19. Alfa 159 sensitive indicators self-cancelling early

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hello all, Basically I've had this 'issue' for a while, but it's getting on my nerves now. Every time I approach a round about or junction I click the indicator on (left or right), and within 2-3 seconds i.e the point where I reach the junction or begin turning, the indicator cancels itself...
  20. Steering gear problems in early 159 Alfas

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi, My 159 was manufactured in 2006. I have heard that the early 159s' steering box can have serious problems that may lead to its complete change. Some rust problems in the inside. Does anyone have experiences with this phenomenon? Regards, Attila
