  1. The Alfa Nut 1974 GTV 2000 feature!

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Hi folks, I'm having a bit of nostalgic fun in this weeks episode - whilst hooning around the lanes in an immaculate modified 1974 GTV 2000! Next video will feature a similarly immaculate restored '74 Montreal :party:
  2. Windscreen washer / water feature

    Alfa Giulietta
    My passenger side windscreen squirter has become more of a water feature these days. Basically sending a very picturesque stream way over the rooftop towards the car behind me. Last wash I gave it a good scrub with a toothbrush which seems to have made it worse if anything. Can anything be...
  3. SATNAV Satisfactory Operation and 'New' Feature

    Alfa Giulia
    Just to report that I've found no real problem at all with my Quadrifoglio's SATNAV during 18 months of ownership and on the 1,500 mile journey to Abruzzo. I do have the latest infotainment software and map for this early 2017 model. One thing I learnt on the autostrade is that the progress...
  4. Determining Stop/Start feature on '09 MiTo

    Alfa MiTo
    I'm aware this will sound like a daft question, but have always been told that the only daft question is the one that's never asked. I imagine someone here will prove me wrong! ? I have a 59 plate MiTo 1.3 Jdtm (Sep '09 registered) which made the delightful whirr-whirr-clunk noise of a dead...
  5. Squealing brakes? Feature not a bug

    General Motoring Discussion
    Apparently Porsche is getting a bit miffed at owners who do nothing but whine and complain about how noisy the brakes are, so it felt the need to re-educate them. Porsche Brake Squeal Is Apparently A Safety Feature, Not A Defect : Tech : Tech Times
  6. Help finding a Spider 3.2 for a magazine feature

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hello! First time posting here, and I'm coming in with a favour to ask... I'm writing a convertible group test for Modern Classics magazine, and we're looking for a Spider 3.2 JTS to shoot and test-drive - in excellent condition and ideally all factory-standard. Are there any users here in the...
  7. nice hidden feature

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Not sure if its common knowledge or a common spec but I found a niffty hidden feature in the Spider the other day, I had need to slam the brakes on hard from 80 down to stop on the motorway and the hazzards came on by themselves and flashed at double speed warning the bloke behind, good job too...
  8. b&m feature I never knew of!

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Well, after over 4 years with the159 I found a b&m feature I never knew I had!! Changing between media stick, cd and radio always was a bit hit and miss, often having to resort to the steering wheel controls to get to the media menu and choose random or try to get the middle of the right...

    I help manage a online car club/magazine for car enthusiasts (around 5K members) and we send out regular newsletters with featured cars. We would like a theme with Alfa Romeo in one of the coming newsletters and would like to ask the members of this forum for help. We have 7 slots available...

  12. Ryall's S n S feature

    South Africa
    I walked into a Shell store today and my eye fell on 'Old Schoo Alfetta ' on the front cover of the latest Sn S. I then remembered Ryall telling me his Alfetta was going to be featured in S n S. I just glanced at the feature. Looks great! Will buy mag later. Congrats Ryall! Nice to see more...
  13. Magnificent design feature

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    We've had our 2.4Jtdm for more than a year now and the battery - which is Alfa labelled and looks fairly old - was showing its age. I had never topped it up as it was obviously a sealed model. Removed it to fit my spare and discovered that it isn't sealed at all and therefore really needed a...
  14. Haydns 164 AROC article feature needed, Oct. 2013

    Alfa 164 & 166
    Just been passed a couple of 2013/14 AROC magazines and amongst them is a monthly feature describing the writers rebuild of a cloverleaf, its a good read if other owners have not seen it. Forgotton what a superb magazine it is. October 2013 article states he has EXACTLY same isue I and others...

    South Africa
    I don't buy car magazines anymore...but my BIL does and i flipped through it and guess what I saw? Congrats to Paul with the 159 sound feature. I'm disappointing they didn't say 1 thing about the car though??? So many things could have been said...:confused::thumbs:
  16. Car magazine QV in used car feature .

    Alfa Giulietta
    As has been mentioned previously they seem to have found a very cheap example . The picture is of a car half the age of the mythical £10900 car. Also , the description seems to describe the services of a certain Alfa Specialist more than the equivalent bits about maintaining the other cars in...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT

  19. wet air filter: standard feature??

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    for the second time I have found that the air filter on my 2.4 jtdm is wet. Either it appears the sealing ring at the bottom of the canister is not sealing and the mist/moisture above the undertray is being drawn into the canister or the air intake at the front of the car is just too good at...
  20. Hidden feature i think on Alfa Romeo GT

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi guy, Don't know if any of you fellow GT owners know this but their is a feature on the Alfa Romeo which I accidentally discovered. I was sat in the car last night messing around with the lights and stuff and when I got out the lights stayed on even though the car was off. My initial...
