    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi Alfas, I have an Alfa Romeo 147 from 2001 and the shift has gone mad. My mechanic says that the problem is in the synchrons and that the transmission need to be replaced, but he cant find any used eco transmission. Can the car use the regular transmission, not the eco? URGENT!

  9. Save a bob or two going a bit eco?

    The Technology Section
    Thought I'd try going a wee bit green by re-charging alkaline dry cells. Cheesed off with chucking the things away, so best dry cell alkaline battery charger that someone can recommend, as the one I have at present is a bit erratic? :(:

  12. Alfa 159 ECO 120 bhp DPF

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    All, Please would someone let me know if the 159 ECO 120 bhp has a DPF and if so has it had issues with its DPF clogging up? If buying a 59' plate used, would it be a good idea to drive like you stole it to clear it out? Many thanks in advance!

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi I'm hoping to order a 159 next month. Has anyone had any experience of the 8 valve Eco engine? Not my engine of choice, but in the interest of keeping my BIK down (will be company car) and staying within my lease budget, having the 8 valve engine might be the only 159 that I can get...
