  4. The Sun - Giulia Review, wot it ain't German !

    Alfa Giulia
    Nice review online by the Britain's best loved and read newspaper, "The Sun". https://www.thesun.co.uk/motors/2936448/we-review-the-191mph-alfa-romeo-giulia-quadrifoglio-a-ferrari-with-an-alfa-badge/ They are convinced its a Ferrari with an Alfa badge but rate the car very much. This review...
  5. Quattroruote, Giulia vs German trio

    Alfa Giulia
    Even if they are Italian it's mostly VAG biased magazine. Guess what, the most advertisements are from VAG. Giulia excelled in dynamic tests and although BMW 320d has a M Pack and Giulia does not have a Performance Pack it's a faster car than BMW.
  6. German translation please

  7. 27 year old Italian - 1, 3 month old German - nil...!

    Alfa 164 & 166
    Well, that wasn't bad then! Over the weekend, my 3 month old VW pukes all its coolant on to the drive. Yesterday afternoon, I wave it goodbye on the back of a recovery truck. "Boss, I've got a problem! The company car's just died and I need to go to Millbrook for this really important and...

  9. Converted to German!! :(

    General Alfa Discussion
    Hi All A sorry day in my life last Thursday when I called my local Alfa Garage in Newcastle and they have told me that there is probably a delay of at least 18 months to buy a Giulia! Simply not good enough and when I hear that my cousin in Florence is picking up his new Giulia on the 1st...
  10. Those slapdash German electronics!

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I just noticed that the centre dash display (above the temp/clock/fuel gauges) on my 156 today reads "Wed 2 Feb". But today is a Tuesday! I checked and the date is definitely set to 02-02-2016 so it didn't jump to a wrong year. It's a Bosch unit, as far as I know. Germans... :devious: :lol...

  13. More German car industry woes

    General Motoring Discussion
    I hate using the Daily Mail as a link but the Times article is paywalled. Seems Porsche have inserted a throttle response delay of up to 2.5s at around 30mph in order to meet noise pollution test limits. Several drivers reported near accidents when the car didn't respond as expected. Porsche...
  14. Looks like I'm going German

    South Africa
    I am getting a good deal on a 2012 F30 BMW 320i Sport line.... has some nice extras on it as well.... They are settling the QV with the bank and I end up paying more the R2000 less per month on a car......, which is critical for me since my wife lost her job. :boxedin: I don't want the BMW, but...
  15. Alfa or German?

    Alfa Giulietta
    OK - with an expensive house move on the horizon and 2 children about to go to University in September (one in London), I find my self having to sell my BMW X1 M Sport and Alfa Spider to help "fund things". My head had decided to buy a 3 series probably around a 2011/12, but my heart keeps...
  16. New to Alfa after decades of German cars

    Introduce Yourself
    Hey there, I'm completely new to the world of Alfa ownership. I've driven BMW, Audi, Mercedes for years and finally got bored of all of them. I'd always wanted an Alfa so when the opportunity came up recently I bought myself a 2007 GT 2.0 JTS. I've had a new clutch fitted, cam belt/water pump...
  17. Alfa 147 2.0 at the german autobahn

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Just got home after a few nice holidays nearby Koblenz, Germany. Lately, I had to let go my beloved 1996 1.6 146. Last year made with that wonderful boxer engine. Sounded sweet and was always reliable. So, I went and bought a 2007 147 sporting that 2.0 Twin Spark engine, as I couldn't fint a...
  18. Harald Wester's view of the German opposition!!!

    General Alfa Discussion
    Maserati Chief Harald Wester Wants Cars with Soul "the guys I mentioned earlier, are damn good uniforms. Close to perfect pieces of engineering. Good for us they have no soul. They’re f***ing boring. They don’t transmit anything." Well, that's an honest and straightforward answer!
  19. An old german 159 2.4jtdm road test article:

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    An old german 159 2.4jtdm road test article: Alfa 159 Sportwagon 2.4 JTDM 20V Distinctive im Dauertest - autobild.de It looks like they stumble across the usual issues. DPF, rough start etc.
  20. German Reliability???

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I just read this article and was amused at the presence of all the top German manufacturers; but not a mention of the "unreliable" Alfa's. The UK's most scarily unreliable car revealed
