    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Well I bought a 2000 2.0 Phase 2 Spider last week. Well most of one.... It had a frontal crash in 2012 and has been worked on but not finished. It's silver with black cloth interior and when I am finished the plan is for it to be the factory yellow with blue Lusso leather interior. It looks...
  2. Fun with spark plugs

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Lately I've been noticing a significant (but not huge) loss of power at lower rpm (from idle up to about 3000 or so), accompanied by a slight increase in engine vibration, and some apparent slight misfiring at idle (though this could be a perception created by the increased vibration, the...
  3. Fun UK car advert - Fiat Tipo

    General Motoring Discussion
    I know we don’t see fun car adverts like this anymore, but... why don’t we see fun car adverts like this anymore? Is life now so joyless? Anyway, enjoy the madness. No idea if it helped boost Tipo sales, but pretty sure it was quite a popular car in the UK in the late 80s. A current car ad...

  6. How do i make my JTS GT more fun?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi guys short story so far: after driving a 147 (105hp 1.6TS) for 2,5 years i went and bought a GT JTS. When in the 147 i always figured a little extra power would be nice, and the GT is a decent middle ground between the 147 and the GTV (which i have been pining for for years). Unlike the GTV...
  7. Fun insurance game

    General Motoring Discussion
    My GTA was insured for £300. A full years insurance for the C63, with the same supplier (Admiral) and same terms, was £500. I am 6 months through the insurance period. Guess how much extra money Admiral wanted to swap to the C63 for the remaining 6 months.

  9. Alfa TS = FUN, Stereo System = Rubbish!

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    After an enjoyable ride through traffic on my Alfa 147 ts today, using 2nd and 3rd gears effectively, I actually shouted out loud "I love this car!". Reminds me a bit of the fun I used to have screaming up hills in my old M5 :) However, is it just me, or is the stereo CD system on my Alfa just...

  11. Practical AND fun - touring with a Giulietta

    Alfa Giulietta
    First thing my dick of a brother in law said when he saw my GQV was "another impractical car then". 340 miles were gobbled up non-stop today, and the bars and folding roof box were used in anger for the first time. A great combo, no whistles or other annoying noise. It even colour...

    Alfa GTA
    Hi all, I've always loved the 147 GTA's, but have never known anyone who's owned one. I'm currently missing having a proper car, I've now got small children instead! My Honda Accord tourer is good, but not enough. So,I've just got a new job, which should give me the opportunity to buy a car...

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
