    New Focus in Hungarian spy shot What do we think?
  2. Alfa Giulietta
    We're looking for a nice economical and pratical car for my fiancee. The two main choices at the moment are either new, or perhaps more likely 1-2 year old versions of the Giulietta and Focus. Both claim over 70mph and put out about 120bhp. Real word I think that is likely to be 60mpg if...

    My brother has just purchased this car. With such a tiny engine I expected it to be a little underpowered. Not so. This 1.0 ltr, 3-cylinder turbo engine packs a surprising punch. He reckons it's nearly as fast as his old Audi 1.8 cabriolet, and after driving both the little Focus comes close...

    I am going to be busy tomorrow, yesterday the Mrs' Focus decided to spring a leak from its clutch master cylinder. It looks pretty straightforward as far as master cylinders go, has anyone changed one on a Mk1 1.6 Focus before? It is going to be freezing working outside, but she needs the car...

    What's everyones thoughts on the new facelifted ST? and ST...D? I am seriously tempted! Feeling like I need a bit more fixed cost of motoring at the moment so am tempted to look into this. Also available through company car scheme fully maintained but would need to weigh that up to see if...
  6. Alfa Giulietta
    I am about to change my vehicle and I just want some general advice re the Giulietta. I currently own a 51 plate focus 1.8 TDi which is bombproof and is the most reliable car I've ever owned. However, I have always had a soft spot for Alfas and I'm enchanted by the Giulietta. I know I could buy...
  7. Introduce Yourself
    Hi all Well after having a Focus TDCI for over 7 years despite only doing a short commute, I've finally gone and found a car that I'm happy with! Considered a long list Audi A3, A5, TT, Honda Civic, Merc A Class amongst others but only stumbled across the Giulietta after having a Ferrari/Aston...

    I haven't checked the accuracy of this web site but it would appear that the 1.4MA engine has not been a marketing success in the US and for 2014 it will only power an "Aero" model, which I assume is the eco version. Other Darts will have 2.0 or 2.4 Chrysler Tigershark engines according to this...

  10. General Alfa Discussion
    I drive a 159 and a GTV but whenever I hire a car I ask for an Alfa, if the hire company have one. Picked up a Giulietta from Heathrow on Thursday and enjoyed driving it until Friday afternoon when it got a puncture and I had to put a skinny spare tyre. Car hire company couldn't give me another...

  12. Alfa GTA
    I took my CMax in to be MoTed today and arranged to take a new model Focus ST 3 estate for a drive. Just thought I'd share thoughts. The ST has 247 PS, or almost identical power to GTA. ST has turbocharged 2.0. Costs £170 a year tax, and otr of £25,500 as I drove it. The ride is near identical...
