  1. Old friend returns

    Alfa 145 & 146
    My ti has been away for a long (near 30 months) time, originally she was having a V6 conversion which never happened. I won’t go into all the details as Sunday just gone Jules and I had a trip to Yorkshire. Thoroughly enjoyed my lean, mean, green machine on the way back to Liverpool, even when...
  2. Friend stabbed me in the back - need a turbo

    Alfa Giulietta
    I posted a month or so ago that my turbo blew and a friend was going to fix it. Keep in mind this friend has fixed problems on all our cars in the past year or so, incl software upgrades, gearbox replacements etc. Thinking back, I realise he knows VAG cars, but not Alfa Romeos. Anyway, he said...

  11. Said Good bye to an old friend

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Drove my 159 for the last time last night, handing it over to its new owner. The Brera is a very different car, but I did a lot of miles in the 159, enjoying just about every one. 4 years was the longest I have ever kept a car and the fact that I wanted to own a Brera S whilst there were still...
  12. New GT Junior

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Picked up my new GT Junior today. Does anyone know the car DBP 79E as the only history it came with was its last mot. It's had all the panels replaced with fibreglass ones, debumpered and a 1600 ( i think) engine fitted. Mot expired in July but should pass with a bit of tlc.
  13. Back with old friend Alfa

    Introduce Yourself
    I was a car nut from the age of about 7 and I have a 1966 Observers Book of Automobiles that I pored over as a child. As an eleven year old I was mesmerised by the pictures of the Alfa 2600 Sprint and the Giulia 1600 Sprint GT and knew that one day I had to own one of those beautiful cars. One...

  15. so long dear friend

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Thought I would reflect on nearly 6 years of spider 2.2 JTS ownership, 57K everyday use. It is the most drop dead gorgeous car on the road and throughout the ownership would still look out of the window lovingly and would always get admiring glances and looks. 57,000 miles and no breakdowns so...
  16. Friend picked up a Brera V6 yesterday

    General Alfa Discussion
    So I got a good friend of mine hooked on wanting an Alfa after I bought mine and he put me in charge of finding him a Brera V6, he didn't want a GT purely because he thought the brera looked better, which I agree with! After months of looking I found the perfect one about an hour away in black...
  17. New Car Suggestions - I'm Asking For A Friend

    General Motoring Discussion
    The bloke who I share a lift to work with has recently written of his 10-plate Mondeo TDCi Titanium X. He has 15 grand to replace it with something similar but not the same. What should he buy? He's 60 and is willing to downsize, a bit. His son is the body shop manager at a Vauxhall dealership...
