  1. General Motoring Discussion
    There seems to be 3 categories when it comes to car owners. 1) The type that can repair or fit almost anything and takes pride knowing they done the work themselves without paying labour for someone else to do it. 2) The type that can tackle the easy jobs themselves, some basic servicing...
  2. Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi Guys , I have a Alfa Brera Spider which recently has been having problems with the VDC and Hill stop symbol appearing on the dashboard. At the moment have I have no break lights as the fuse keeps blowing (this has been changed numerous times from a garage) Anyone had any similar issues or...
  3. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, On a whim I've just bought an old 57 plate Blackline JTS for a song. Got it at an unbelievable price due to taking a risk on what all Alfaheads should not take a risk on - lack of service history. It also has an exhaust blow which is kicking off the lambdas. It's on 85k My first port...

  5. Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Would really appreciate if anyone local to South Hereford Garages could take a quick look at this Brera for my brother. He currently has a GT Cloverleaf but is hankering for a Brera and this one is a rare 2.0 JTDm which he fancies. It's a 2.5 hour drive for him so would appreciate someone...

  9. Alfa GTA
    Dear all, I am not sure if this is a good idea or even doable, but I am planning a month long road trip to Italy next year, after upgrading my European roadside recovery i now have the option to take me to a specific garage rather than just the nearest.....So this brought to mind where I would...
  10. South Africa
    I moved into a new house on Saturday with my SO, and the prerequisite for the move was that the house must have a garage that is big enough for 2 cars plus all the parts etc I have accumulated over the years, plus safe parking for 2 more cars. Found a house, within budget, in the exact area we...
  11. Alfa 164 & 166
    Any recommendations for local garages to Glasgow?
  12. Alfa MiTo
    Hi all, Recently moved into Kent and am looking for a reputable garage in the area that folks have used to either get regular/servicing work done on their Alfas or even better used to have modifications done. Being an Alfa specialist isn't necessary to me if the standard of work is good. I'm...
  13. General Alfa Discussion
    I have just booked my 11 plate Giulietta into Piccadilly Alfa, Knaresborough for an oil and filter change at a cost of £97.13. I budgeted nearly £21 for the 130 mile round trip from home so a total cost of £118. Why have I gone to the main dealer I hear you ask. However I also got four quotes...
  14. General Alfa Discussion
    Hi there, Due to 'old age' my Scimitar has gone to pastures new and been replaced with a 156ts 2.0 Sportswagon. Very quiet and smooth. Is there a list of independent Alfa garages here? I'm in West Sussex. Cheers, Pete.
  15. ICE & Blue&Me
    Hi Alfas I have just purchased a Brera ProDrive. It does not come with Blue & Me as standard because it is a 2009 plate. As I have no technical skills can anyone recommend a garage in Bedfordshire/Cambridgeshire or even London that could fit this for me. I love my music and I cant cope with...

  17. General Motoring Discussion
    Hi, I am about to do some servicing and notices it’s due to p**s down for the foreseeable future. Just came across this place, which looks amazing Pit Start - Self Service Garage - 020 8827 1919 but is miles away. Has anyone tried it? Is there anything like this in South London? Even...
  18. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Is there any garages near Staffordshire or Derbyshire that are any good with Alfa's ? As with my old car , there were only certain garages i felt i could trust with it. :) Thanks for any help.
  19. Alfa 164 & 166
    now, purple has an aversion garages, I hate them, much rather do it my self and do it properly, which I think is why my cars are still going. However there are somethings purps cannot do himself, aircon is one, tyres is another, and a trip to get two new tyres a few weeks ago may spell the end...
  20. East Midlands
