  1. Toe 0 experiences, really it solves the problem of tyre wear?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi, changing the brake pads I realised that with 15k kilometers (about 10k miles) the inner tyre was completelly weared. So, looking for solutions I´ve read about adjusting the toe at 0´ but nobody gives more information about if it really works or not. And really the idea doesn´t seduces me...
  2. Maxton design - experiences?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    After seeing a 147 GTA on the GTA forum with a front splitter from Maxton design, I’ve been considering getting a front splitter and a rear spoiler for my GT 3.2. Does anybody have any experiences to share? My car is Lipary grey, so the next question would be which surface to go for - molet...

    Alfa GTA
    After seeing a 147 GTA on here with a front splitter from Maxton design, I’ve been considering getting a front splitter and a rear spoiler for my GT 3.2. Does anybody have any experiences to share? My car is Lipary grey, so the next question would be which surface to go for - molet, gloss black...
  4. Amusing oddball mechanic experiences

    General Motoring Discussion
    For every uncelebrated and exceptional mechanic that's out there, there are many that make you worry about their abilities. What's the most alarming thing a mechanic has told you that has made you question their competence? Some five years ago, the Taxi had a random and not always repeatable...
  5. Motoreasy Extended Warranty - any experiences?

    General Motoring Discussion
    Hi all, bought a three year old Volvo XC90 for the wife - and was looking at getting an extended warranty for it. I have been quoted £700 for a two year Plan A warranty from Motoreasy - it seems online to be the most comprehensive warranty although it is hard to tell whether any of these...
  6. Supercar driving experiences

    General Motoring Discussion
    Hi all, was given a Virgin 6 car driving experience voucher - am based in northwest London - from what I can tell there are not many options nearby except the Dunsfold track. Wondering if anyone has any recommendations about the tracks further away, e.g. Lydden Hill, or Mallor Park, or...
  7. Stelvio Pics & Experiences Thread :)

    Alfa Stelvio
    Hi Guys! So I visited the dealers before Christmas & fell in love (again)... This time with the Stelvio :) Veloce was a great car, but the bigger SUV better suited to my circumstances... I just wish I had bought this in the 1st place & saved a fortune in the process £££ Nice Chrimbo present...
  8. Savali tuning in Holland - experiences anyone?

    Tuning & Upgrades
    Hi! I have been looking around to have my Giulietta Q.V. remapped. After talking to local tuning companies I was left with a feeling they had very little clue about the specificities of my car. Also, as I live in Luxembourg, the local options are rather limited. After some googling I am...
  9. Remapping Experiences: The Good and The Bad?

    Alfa Giulia
    Anyone willing to share their experiecne with remapping? How pleased are you? Teething problem if any?
  10. Bizarre car experiences

    General Motoring Discussion
    Do you have any strange or funny car anecdotes? Back in the late 80s I had my second Triumph Dolly Sprint. The previous owner had an aftermarket, glass sunroof fitted. At the time it was pretty cool addition; cut into the black vinyl roof it was a good conversation piece. On a beautiful...
  11. Giulia Veloce pics and experiences

    Alfa Giulia
    So I have had my Giulia Veloce for just over a week now and thought that I would start my first thread. Feel free to add your own pics and experiences but here is my input for now: Ordered at the start of March when my dealer was first able to give finance details on the Veloce model, my car...
  12. First experiences of a 147Jtdm coming from VAG ownership

    Introduce Yourself
    First and foremost, looking forward to chatting to some of you on here and getting your thoughts and interests on all sorts. Previously I have owned a mk4 golf v6 4mo, an Audi a4 18t 190, Golf mk5 gt fsi, passat 2.0 tdi (and an RX8, say what you must!) - and I must say, after acquiring my '08...
  13. 2.0 JTS reliability experiences?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Looking at a 2004 156, 2.0 JTS. 165000 on thr clock. Looks mint on the outside. And it goes for 2750?. Really tempted to sell my JTD, add some cash and get it. Friend had a TS that has been pretty reliable, so Im guessing theyre not bad if taken care of properly. I dont really drive a lot...
  14. Positive Dealer Experiences

    Alfa Giulia
    Having read about not so good stories about dealers on here i felt It would be good to start a thread listing the positive dealer experiences so that people can have some reference before they decide to buy Gulia. I must say that after my experiences with Alfa Romeo dealers in UK and in Greece...
  15. Giulia Quadrifoglio Pics and Experiences Thread

    Alfa Giulia
    May it's a good idea instead of everyone starting their one thread with pics (which would be nice) but also experiences and questions (which would be nice to have them in one thread) I will do the start I've got my Giulia in Montecarlo Blu last Saturday and what I can tell, not only by the...
  16. JTS on LPG - any experiences

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I have a pristine 156 JTS Selespeed SW with only 27k on it. Brought it in from the far east last year and currently have it up for sale at a shade under 2k - Alfa Romeo 156 JTS Selespeed SW, 28k, pristine For Sale (2002) on Car And Classic UK [C776223] Anyway, I have had little interest in it...
  17. Anyone had any experiences returning faulty goods to shop4parts?

    General Alfa Discussion
    Issue has now been resolved. Sorry to bother you all.
  18. Contitech bearings - any experiences?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I need the front bearing kit for my 156 and saw the Contitech at £47 which compared to local factors is nearly half price. I've checked on their website and they're nearly half price and free delivery - so I wondered if anyone else had used them?
  19. Experiences with the 156 2.5 V6?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    On my work commute home, a silver 156 has been passing me everyday. I have written the 156 off in the past but the more this chap in his 2.4 JTD drives past me, the more I want one. If I am honest, I don't care one bit about economy - driving for me is about enjoyment hence the appeal of adding...
