  1. Brera value for a fair price?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Please see the attached list that covers the basic history of my 2.4 (210) Brera, to add to the list both front and rear subframes were rust treated & coated not 2 months ago, EGR delete and remapped, she's covered less than 60k & drives/runs faultlessly. Good boots all round, very pampered car...
  2. Just a fair warning to Busso owners

    South Africa
    There has always been a long debate about thermostats and controled temperatures in Busso V6 engines and I have learned the hard way what is best for these engines. To spread the information to all I chose to post this info: 1. In a Busso the temperature scale has a line marked 50 degrees, a...
  3. Fair well alfisti

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi all, it's a sad time for me as I am setting sail for new automotive pastures. I've had Alfas for years including two v6 156's a GT and my current 159. I've loved nearly every moment in all of them and will miss them badly . Like a number of others I can't hang on any longer even though the...
  4. SZ on sale at just over �20k

    Alfa 75, RZ, SZ
    SZ on sale at just over £20k Guys, I've seen a SZ with about 90k km on the clock (so not a garage queen) on sale in England for just over £20k. I thought fair prices were closer to the £35k mark, so was wondering if you figured there is something fishy or perhaps a big service due that one...
  5. Fair price

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I have had a quote for a replacement dual mass flywheel and a a clutch, all the parts are genuine fiat and the mechanic is an alfa specialist was wondering if £1400 was about right?

  8. How do 156's fair on bad Irish roads ?

    Republic of Ireland
    Hi all I was set on bringing in a 156 Jtd sportswagon from the Uk but my mechanic has strongly advised against it on reliability grounds, saying it will start to rattle very quickly on the bad roads here in west cork and go through suspension parts at a high rate. Am trying not to be put off...

  10. Fair Valuation??

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider

  11. How much for diagnostics is fair ?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    got quoted £55 for diagnostics today... Thought that was steep or am I just being tight ? Thing is I'd expect someone to actually give me something for £ 55 not just plug my car into a computer. Do the garages usually knock off the diagnostics if you have the work done there ?

  15. Fair insurer for mods

    Tuning & Upgrades
    Hi Guys, I posted this in the GT thread, but it may be best here. A few weeks ago I saw a thread where one of you had declared quite a few mods to the insurer and got a sympathetic quote. Aviva have just put my multicar policy up £270, so I need to change. I've a standard spec 1.8 sportwagon...
