  1. Car Chase Heroes

    Way Off Topic
    A quick shout-out to Blendini Motorsport (CarChaseHeroes) who organised a very enjoyable driving experience at the Three Sisters racetrack on Saturday, where family gave me a chance to drive some very nice cars. It's worth going through the BuyAGift website as you can get better deals than going...

  3. Ownership experience..

    Alfa MiTo
    I'm looking at buying a MITO 1.4 veloce but I'm confused by the tax rates and power output. Some seem to have 150 bhp while others have 170bhp. I'm planing to use it as a daily runner for taking the kids around, etc. Nothing major; maybe a few one hour motorway journeys. How good is this car...
  4. My Alfa, the dealer Experience and that handle issue

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hello - after many years of reading various posts on here both positive and negative I felt it is now time to express my Alfa experience.

  5. Experience novitec shocks

    Alfa GTA
    Does anyone has experience with the standard novitec shocks (if so in combination with eibach springs)? As mentioned in another topic bilstein doesn't deliver the B6/B8 dampers i would like. Mailed with Autolusso and they recommend the novitec shocks instead. So just wondering if anyone has...
  6. Alfa experience as a first time owner

    Alfa Giulia
    Hey guys, I would like to share my experience as a first time owner. Hopefully it'd help a few people who maybe thinking about getting a new Giulia. When I first laid eyes on the Giulia in LA auto show, I knew it was time for an upgrade. I decided to wait a year before getting mine to avoid...
  7. Has anyone got experience with Servicing at Motor Village?

    Alfa MiTo
    Hi guys, I am looking to book my MiTo QV in for a service super soon. At the same time, I think I'm going to get the cambelt and water pump done as a precautionary measure. Has anyone on here got any experience with Motor Village and their servicing department? I just want to guage what they...
  8. Smart Repair Insurance - Experience

    Alfa Giulia
    Hi, Std Veloce (280) due in a couple of weeks - Alfa Red. I previously had a red vehicle back in the 90's, looked very nice but was a magnet for chips and scuffs. Being a flat colour I expect to show all the crap. With that thought in mind I have agreed the Smart Repair and Supagard, the idea...

    Alfa MiTo

  12. Engine damper - anyone experience with?

    Alfa MiTo
    Hi all, has anyone experience with an engine damper? Orque from Japan sells one for the MiTo. Videos on youtube (sure for different cars, mostly Nissan etc.) show tremendous effects; the engine nearly "stands" still in every driving situation which enables a smooth shifting (you don´t have the...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi all, I've just arrived to this forum because I am seriously considering in getting me a second hand Brera. (I say considering when the right expression would be "hopelessly resisting" :D) The point is that I am not very knowledgeable on cars so I would like to ask a few questions about the...
  19. Alfa Offroad- terrible ORTambo experience- on re-entry TO Rsa

    South Africa
    All I can say at present is that never, ever have I been subjected to such a ridiculous cross examination upon arriving at the hub for umpteenth time. Shocking tactics, at best. Maybe they want me to believe I am anything other than an honest non-citizen. Approval rating gone way, way negative...
