    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi All, I was completing an oil change on my Alfa 159 3.2 and all was going well until I went to change the filter. When I tried to remove the cap, the nut at the bottom broke off which left a crack/hole on the cap. I ordered a replacement on ebay but it doesn't fit. Anyone have any ideas of...

    Alfa Giulietta

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hey, so i decided to do something about the restrictive air intake on my 159 V6 (can do exact same on brera v6). it felt like it was constipated, as if i was breathing through a straw. - Simota pod filter with a 77mm inlet (or any pod filter e.g k&n, pipercross, what have you) - 3 inch...
  6. Is this a genuine Pipercross filter?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Can anyone tell me if this looks like a genuine Pipercross filter? I bought it off eBay for my 159. I'm a little suspicious as I've used Pipercross filters before and they usually have 'Pipercross' across it but this one just has a cross.
  7. Drop in air filter recommendation

    Alfa MiTo
    Dear all, I have just gotten a 1.4TB (114kw/ 155bhp). I like to have some sound on the turbo spool or oosh but not willing to have the one with open pod which is way too noisy and loud. Just something better than stock will be good. Will BMC or K&n be able to achieve that?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi folks, I noticed my TBi started marking its spot. It used to have a leak at the heat exchanger, but it was replaced fully and serviced at the same time somewhere last year. I took the sump "guard" off and it was a big mess. Seems the filter housing is leaking a little on the driveshaft...

    I have a 1999 Phase2 916 twinspark and trying to find out if it has a replaceable fuel filter. I've read a few threads on here but still unclear. Some say it's inside the fuel tank and some say its outside but definitely not in the engine bay after searching. I bought the air, oil and fuel...
