    General Motoring Discussion
    Interesting piece :- https://www.autocar.co.uk/car-news/features/sorting-real-automotive-pioneers-their-copycats Essentially list of motoring perceptions vs facts.... Some interesting firsts in there and the first hot-hatch was Italian. Not German... :D
  2. fact or fiction

    Tuning & Upgrades
    Been reading and with different results . Is it true or false That you need roughly 1cc of fuel for every Hp of power Example 220 Hp requires injectors that give roughly 220cc of fuel Thanks in advance :bow:
  3. Automatics: FACT! or fiction?

    General Motoring Discussion
    Just had a discussion with someone about automatic gearboxes. Their stance is that all cars should/will be automatic as they are better for the environment. (My stance is they are for old folk and wimmin. :p) I called BS as I remember the Evoque auto being in a higher CO2 tax bracket...
  4. Random Giulietta owner fact

    Alfa Giulietta
    When I last met up with Italian friends, at Geneva show, their son said a friend at school in Rome has a dad with a Giulietta . His name ; Chris Fisichella and his dad is Giancarlo Fisichella. He used to drive for Ferrari F1 apparently. Any other famous Giuliettisti?

  6. Unintended acceleration; myth or fact?

    General Motoring Discussion
    You'll probably remember the ridiculous fiasco Toyota faced two years back over unintended acceleration, with Camrys accelerating out of control and slow 'n' sleepy powerless Yaris autos suddenly tripling in power and responding like an angry lion on its way to lunch. I think the overall...
  7. A fact for the pub

    Alfa Giulietta
    How much does a G weigh, with half a tank of diesel, and me driving it....just in case it comes in a pub quiz... .....1440kg I took some scrap metal to a dealer today in the boot and that's how much we weighed after I had dumped the steel and went on the weigh bridge
  8. Interesting fact about Serpent on AR Logo

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I'd bet no one really knows that what the serpent has coming out of his mouth on the logo. It isnt fire like most people believe, it is actually a person.
  9. Is this a well known Spider fact? (rear window))

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I just put the roof down on my spider and heard 2 massive cracks. Thought it was just the frame creaking, put the roof back up and the rear window is split and cracked all over the place, totally destroyed. Is it common knowledge to not put the roof down when the weather is cold? Had loads...

  11. Fact or myth - Air con increses fuel consuption...

    General Alfa Discussion
    .... or "saps power from the engine" I've been hearing this for years, and it often features on "top ten fuel saving tips" and the like. It's accepted as fact, but I've yet to see any evidence for this, or even understand the process. Permit me to elaborate.. 1) An a/c unit is essentially a...

  13. Interesting oil fact #3

    Engines (TS, JTS, JTD & V6)
    SYNTHETIC? What is it and what does it really mean? The Oxford Dictionary says: “made by synthesis; manufactured as opposed to produced naturally” When it comes to oil we think of synthetics as the best that we can buy and that all synthetics are the same but, it’s not so simple. Synthetic...

  19. Does the fact new Alfa contain GM parts put you off.

    Poll Room
    Does the though of an Alfa fitted with GM components put you off buying one? This is because I was speaking to a Saab enthusiast earlier and he said he wouldn't buy a newer GM Saab. He said it wasn't nessessarily based on fact, but he just didn't like his Saab sharing parts with a Vauxhall. I...
  20. Italian driving fact

    General Alfa Discussion
    I read with interest... Until 1923, motorists in Italy could drive on the right hand side of the road in the countryside, but had to drive on the left when they got to towns and cities... eek! My experience on holidays in Italy suggest that some still do... :rolleyes:
