    Hi I'm opening this post to get some help and also to collect information from various sources to help upcoming forumers. My 2004 156 Ti has OEM Xenon headlights. The previous owner put a metal plate underneath the car that "pushes" (let's rather say it even bends...:disappointed: ) the linkage...

    Introduce Yourself
    Morning folks, I'm very pleased to have become an Alfa owner for the 1st time in 25 years of driving. I've been a petrol head since I could play, but have stayed a bit more mainstream with my car choices. I've always loved Alfa's but never committed to buying one. I've taken a bit of a life...

    General Alfa Discussion
    After a while of searching the closest Brera or 159 with the 2.4 diesel engine I wanted was outside Aberdeen. Also had to be black. After a 3 hour train journey, delayed on route by 40 minutes, I picked it up. Has high mileage (about 135k) but drives great. Full leather, 6 speed manual, recent...

  9. Finally pulled the trigger

    General Alfa Discussion
    Well done it, I'm now a fully fledged Alfa owner, it's only a 1.8 TS GT but it's a Blackline and I love the interior detailing and exhaust note. Looking forward to getting along to some of the meets with it.

  16. Finally dusted off the 33

    General Alfa Discussion
    Ive had a mk1 33 1.5 Green Cloverleaf for around 4 years now which I saved from almost certain death. The car had been standing for 6-7 years before I saved it, but I still managed to drive it to my workshop. From this day I put it in the back of a barn where it has stood for the last 3-4 years...

  20. Out of warranty. Finally.

    General Alfa Discussion
    I may be pushing my luck, but since my warranty ran out two months ago I have totally stopped listening to any odd squeek or rattle in the Brera. Before I more or less was looking for faults and reasons to bring my bella to the garage. Apart from a bad sensor for the passenger power window I...
