    I have a 210 brera diesel that smokes quite badly when under hard acceleration/ full throttle. .

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    So now the mot is done it's on to a few things I'd like to attend to. I need to sort the passenger side drive shaft. I can get a full new shaft for £80 or a new inner joint spider for much less. Unsure which to go for. Can anyone offer any advice on what is best and what the chances are of the...

    Republic of Ireland
    Hi all, I was quoted €1200 by Grandon's in Cork for a timing belt change and full service on the Giulietta. To be honest, I nearly died of shock when I heard that figure. Sounds extremely high to me. It's the 1.6 multijet engine so it's not like I'm bringing in a super rare beast, the same...

    Alfa Giulia
    At last service the dealer noticed an error code on one headlamp unit - turns out the flap that opens for full beam (not a seperate bulb, just a flap that lets more light out) has failed. I hadn't noticed, as the lights are so damn bright anyway - best headlights I've had on any car. New...

    Hey guys, Had my Giulia QV for a few days, absolutely love it! One thing that is slightly annoying is the juddering the car does when on full lock.
