And here was me thinking Lancia was the dead brand in the FCA range. This surely can't last much longer. The last time Alfa invested this much in a revival, it had massive success with the 156 and 147. The current plan seems like a total failure in comparison. Sales have been down every year...
Giulia sales figures in both continents have literally halved in the period up to March last year...!
What is it that makes such struggle to sell such beautiful work of art? Dealers network, alfisisti being endangered species or Alfa Romeo historical shambolic customer service?
Sales data in...
Because I'm considering buying the Giulia 2.0T 280bhp from the USA but driving it in Europe, I want to know if there are any differences in the engine or parts or any differences at all? What's the difference between TI and Veloce, except in the letters?
Thanks in advice...
Fiat recently showed this concept in Brazil. It is designed by FCA LATAM and is apparently planned for production for LATAM market. Although what the production model will look like is anyone's guess.
Planning a quick buzz round Europe, and all I can find online is the "customer service" number 00 800 2532 0000 which seems to be for everything for a test drive to spare parts. Is this the same number I should use if the car has a breakdown? If I have it...i won't need it.
not sure why it is, looking over on some european websites
they really seem to put on the km's with the cars retailing for way more money than spiders sell for here.
an example site
i have noticed this too, with my smart roadster, on the continent they are worth 1.5-2.5 k more...
I just found that in both Italy and Spain, actually there are not a lot of BMW.
In Italy, most people do drive Fiat and Audi. A bit of Merc, Alfa and Maserati, but I probably only encountered less then 10 BMWs.
In Spain, the Spanish loves their Seat and surprisingly Citroen as well...
Well, my local Alfa Romeo dealer, and the parent company behind them, the importer for FIAT/Chrysler/Alfa Romeo in NZ (i.e. FCA NZ), have drawn a blank on this one.
For two weeks I've been asking them for an update USB to bring my 2015 Giulietta uConnect back to life. It is stuck in a state...
Does anybody have any recommendations on where to find used parts from Europe, aside from eBay?
In particular i'm looking for a LHD passenger side Tan leather seat to replace the driver's seat on my ph2 Spider, as its starting to look a bit worn.
Any advice would be much appreciated.
Summer holidays ... we generally take a wee road trip to Hungary, camping on the way. Through Germany and Austria on the way out, and Slovenia, Italy and Switzerland on the way back (sometimes we head north to Prague, etc).This is the 13th time we've done it, and the second year in the Alfa.
As some may have read on another post, I make replica GTA Fibreglass airboxes just as they used to be in the 60's.
They are undrilled, so any size weber/solex/dellorto up to 48mm. can be fitted.
If anyone is interested, please send me a mail to: alberto.guirola at gmail.com

Just got some of the Eurolite adaptors for driving in Europe and wondered if all facelift 156 (sportwagon - 2004) are standard or projector headlights?
I'm guessing it's not HID as the light from them is pretty useless and obviously halogen but the stickers have differing positions for...
Took my GT 3.2 home this summer. Or back to Arese that is. She deserved that after a 11 year hiatous up here in scandinavia, far far from home.
4660 miles completed in a round trip from Norway, through Sweden, Denmark, Germany, Lichtenstein, Switzerland, Italy and France. Seems like she enjoyed...
Taking my GT on a road trip to France in a couple of weeks and after kitting out with all the necessary legal requirements was wondering what sort of rep Alfa's have in France, anyone now how common they are, especially GT's
Very quick query, I have recently moved to France and I am registering my vehicle here, for this I need the french version of an MOT.
Does anyone know if the headlights can be adjusted for driving on the right or must I replace both headlights with ones for a LHD car...
