  1. Classic Alfa Romeo 164 in funny comparison with a Tesla!?

    General Alfa Discussion
    Watch this crazy comparison. One guy made comparison with an old Alfa Romeo 164 with a V4 engine from 1994, with a Tesla model 3. What a great quality the old Alfa had. :rofl:

  3. Funny noise from rear wheel

    General Motoring Discussion
    Mrs Bazza's Audi S4 is making an odd noise from the region of one of the rear wheels. It's a bit like the noise you get with a stone stuck in a tyre - but it's irregular (and sometimes very frenetic in tempo), and doesn't change with wheel speed as you'd expect. Not sure how long it's been...
  4. Funny place to find a GTA?

    Alfa GTA
    It's pretty difficult to import a car into Cuba. So a bit surprised to find this in Havana (April 2018).
  5. Brera S 2.2 Another funny noise. Open the pod bay doors please HAL...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hello, My Brera S 2.2 JTS has developed another funny noise. I noticed it whilst changing a bulb. It's coming from the top end of the engine bay I think... It's really hard to tell. The engine is off. Key is in and the electrics are 'on'. There is high pitched squeal, like a high voltage...
  6. funny story/word of warning..feel free to laugh!!

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    ok so I will start by saying I broke my own cardinal rule of never going to any of the national chains such as kwik fit,ATS or the company in question here national tyres and Autocare.. But I needed alignment and thought what could possibly go wrong...? they can do that right..? so I printed...

  9. Human nature. It's a funny old thing.

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Just noticed in the driver's door frame a sticker saying to replace the airbags after 10 years. Now's there is loads of paranoia about changing cambelt after 3 years but hands up all that have renewed a potentially life saving device. Just wondering.
  10. Funny message on my dash

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi all, my 159 2.4 is broken & seeing as I know next to diddly squat about cars I'm hoping more enthusiastic/intelligent people than myself may help, I have a coolant leak which is something I'm sure I can get fixed pretty easily however my dash screen is telling me I have a damaged plummet...

  12. Funny electrical boot fault

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi all, First off, sorry - I have never actually said 'Hi!' to you guys! So... hi! I have migrated across from a 147 TS and decided to treat myself to a 159 a couple of weeks ago. (With an interim car of a Renault Megane, but we don't talk about that...). Loving it, by the way, drive to work...
  13. Those "funny" wipers

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Used my Spider rather than my main car to go to work yesterday. First time I have attempted to use the wipers. I have noticed the wipers themselves definitely need changing as they are splitting, but I was surprised by how weak the water spray through those "funny" wipers was. Is the 3...
  14. Funny noise

    Alfa GTA
    I noticed a funny noise while driving today. Only evident when off throttle, it sounds like a very quiet version of a playing card in a bike wheel type of noise. About 3 or 4 flicks a second at 40mph. Disappears when under any level of throttle. Only becomes evident at 40odd miles an hour or...
  15. Not technical but funny...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I was given an unexpected birthday present on Saturday night, my Dad went to put the rubbish out around midnight and found a young lad and lass 'engaging in a passionate act' on the bonnet of my 147. :lol: So it looks like I'd better and wash her nose as it's covered in hand prints and pizza...

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Some people just have the knack of summing up Alfa ownership. Lovely car & 10/10 for the ad imo. Made me chuckle. :cheese: ebay
  18. Parking sensors gone funny

    Alfa Giulietta
    I did a search and saw some peoples sensors stopped working... but mine just went a bit odd this morning. Got to work, stuck it in reverse - nothing at all behind me - and it starting making like a bitty, strangled bipping noise.. like it couldn't make it's mind up whether to beep or not...
