  1. Current factory build times...

    Alfa Giulia
    After faffing about for ages, we've decided to trade in our Giulietta for a Giulia Veloce. Can't find anything in stock or even ex-demo in the colour and packs we want. So it might be a factory order, but we've been quoted up to 14 weeks. Does anyone have any insight into current real-life...
  2. Factory racing stripes?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi. I have a 156 selespeed located in the Dominican Republic. The colour is Azurro Nuvollo or paint code 414/B. I love the colour, and am content with the selespeed. I want to respray in the stock colour but I have some questions about some decals on the rear quarter panels. They are iridescent...
  3. Factory tow bar fuse?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi, This is for a sport wagon. On the 7 pin connector of the tow bar I’m only getting voltage from the indicators, all the other terminals are dead, so I’ve no tail lights or brake lights. I may have fused part of it when I wired up a new socket onto the bike rack- I lost the original on a...
  4. Arese Factory...

    General Alfa Discussion
    https://www.fabrizioannibali.it/Alfa-Romeo Some nice arty pictures of the disused factory at Arese captivating and kind of sad at the same time... :) One day I will drive my Alfa back to its spiritual home! :) Will make a great road trip.... The last picture of the Alfa seats has inspired me...
  5. MacBook factory reset.

    The Technology Section
    I want to do a factory reset on my 2011 MacBook Pro, I've done a full back up on an external drive. Talking to other MacBook owners they say it is a risky thing to do a reset on a machine this age. It could lock the machine up as older MacBooks (over 4 or 5 years) really struggle with the...
  6. Adding a subwoofer to factory speakers

    Alfa Giulietta
    I drive an Alfa Romeo Giulietta 1.4 Multiair 65 plate. I recently bought an edge subwoofer from halfords that comes with a built in amp, and I want to add it to the factory speakers on my car. Some people have told me it shouldn't be too difficult and others are saying you should only add a sub...
  7. [Brera 06 200hp] Factory Boost gauge re-scale

    Tuning & Upgrades
    Hello ! First post here. I was wondering if is possible to re-scale the factory boost gauge in the cluster. I enjoy thinkering with the ECU and i think i have found something. I have found in the EDC16C39 damos the boost pressure "scaling" and "offset" for Canbus / Diagnostic / DSM (??) I...

  9. Replacing factory stereo...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I have the factory bose job, so subwoofer and amp in the boot, sounds great but I've been informed from browsing the forum that a better stereo will bring even more joy! Now, having zero knowledge on stereos means I'm not sure where to start, if I'm replacing with a single din then what...
  10. Factory Sat Nav display

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I have a 07 159 SW with factory sat nav fitted. Does anyone else have this system? The display automatically changes from day mode and night mode when the light fades (anoyingly every time you go under a tree or bridge!). My problem is I can hardly read the display in night mode. I've looked...
  11. 147: Crossover and factory speaker-wiring advice

    ICE & Blue&Me
    I'm replacing the factory speakers in my 2006 147 with Boston Acoustics RC620s, putting my woofers and tweeters in the factory positions. I've sent the speaker cables from the amp to join the factory wiring behind the head unit, which is lazy I guess, but there it is. Now, in the door there's...
  12. Adding Amp to Factory GT system

    ICE & Blue&Me
    OK, so I've studied the sticky thread above on how to install aftermarket head units to the 147/156/GT, and if I have read it right then it is possible to get the standard head unit in a GT to produce a line-level output via the DIN speaker connectors by putting the unit into 'Bose/booster'...
  13. Did the Alfa factory produce Factory service manual for the GTV SPIDER?

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi again everyone! Just one question, did the Alfa Romeo factory produce a workshop manual and parts manual, or not? I asked because one Alfa supplier just emailed me that he could get me one for a big amount of money, but a large Alfa Romeo dealer in England just got...
  14. 101 Factory Hardtop

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Need a source for the rear glass in my factory 101 hardtop. I'll also be needing the complete weatherstriping ideas on the best source for someone in the USA? Thanks, John
  15. Anthracite or factory finish?

    Alfa GTA
    The 18" multi spokes are getting a full refurb in a couple of weeks, not that there is much wrong with them other than the odd kerb mark but to my eyes they are not perfect! Anyway was considering getting them done in anthracite as I think this will look pretty nice against the red paint but...
  16. Who has a Veloce with factory parking sensors?

    Alfa MiTo
    Can I have a pic? We ordered ours from the build list and got the natural leather and black windows, but now think parkers would be an advantage. Being the Veloce, there are 2 obious black positions for the middle sensors on the diffuser, but I would appreciate a photo of the bumper with...

    Hi everyone 3. This is where my issues start.... im a bit stumped as to why my factory fitted alarm (i was told it had one at time of purchase) does not work.
