  1. GT 3.2 time to give it up? - fishing for opinions

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello All New member here and I'm looking for a few opinions. I know I'm preaching to the converted, but I'd still value your opinions please. I've owned a red GT 3.2 for 4 years now and it's been trouble free until this year, but this year it's been really trying my patience. It's already...
  2. More stuff to give away...

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Continuing with my New Year’s resolution to sort through the mountain of Alfa spares in my garage bought because ‘they might come in handy one day’ I have a few more items surplus to requirement so if anybody needs a pair of Twin Spark from springs or sills in red give me a shout. The springs...
  3. Had to give up on Blue&Me.

    ICE & Blue&Me
    As my iPhone X Max will never be supported on Blue&Me I needed an alternative Bluetooth system. I had previously used several Parrot kits in various cars to good effect but I also wanted DAB radio so I have just installed a Pure Highway 600 and WOW what a system! 00's of stations, music...
  4. A Prize give away.

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Sorry guys, for the click - bait, but the winner will receive a jam - butty. Just been appreciating the lovely weather all - be - it, a little nip in the air, window half way down, sky view open, sun going down. You know when you get that lovely dusk lighting that makes your car look epic...
  5. 159 Side Light Change - Give Us A Clue?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    OK, so I have been trying to get this changed for a while, without success I have read a few descriptions of what to do, but nothing had a pick, or seemed to work So I assumed I would squeeze the bent metal clasp at the top and it would fold down, but I can't get any purchase on that - Picture...
  6. i give up - alternator belt

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Just completely give up with this car. Trying to change alternator belt on a 156 1.9 JTD. Cannot get the belt back on, exactly the same type of belt, same part number, same length. The tensioner moves, absolutely no logical way of putting the belt on. I cannot believe how difficult this is. I've...
  7. Give up on my tired 147 JTD for a freshed 1.6 TSpark? Or keep going for 200k?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi All, I'd like to hear some thoughts. I have my 147 JTDM TI. It's just passed 148000. Last year was not a good year for it. I hit a truck tyre on the M53 that took out my bumber and aircon rad and bent some bits. I was so attached that I brought it back Class C from the insurer for £400 and...
  8. Spider, just give me a live!

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Ive been installing a new headunit after the original sat nav has given up. Ive installed the headunit, all works, but keeps loosing all the settings as soon as the ignition is turned off. Emailed Connects2 the people who make the adapter for the stereo/car/steering wheel controls, they said...
  9. I give up!

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Trying to find an annoying ratte from the front left corner suspension. It's a knocking rattle on uneven surfaces at sub 30mph speeds, that sound's like arb rattle. Arb bushes are cracked on edges but seem tight apart from that. I've now replaced lower and upper arm's complete, track rod...
  10. gggrrrrr I give up

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    nicely re-furbed wheels..well that has lasted all of 3 weeks. last night when coming home from a lovely day out at Brooklands some hare brained bint in her X5 or some other ridiculous BMW kiddie transportation wagon veers over into the oncoming lane forcing me to take emergency evasive action...
  11. give it away before I toss it

    South Africa

  12. I give you the Renault Kwid

    General Motoring Discussion
    I think the name fits. Renault Kwid 2015 : photos officielles de la nouvelle citadine Renault - L'argus For sale in a Poundshop near you soon. ;) Basically an Indian manufactured Juke with a Renault badge.
  13. This may seem like a daft question, feel free to give me a virtual slap... but...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I'm looking for a 3.2 Brera S Prodrive, preferably in red. Veloces seem to be pushing everything out of my budget to the wrong side of £13K, clean low mileage cars though they might be. Drove one locally which fitted the bill (mentioned on here before), but walked away due to the very high...
  14. Can't give the 4C away

    4C & 4C Spider
    I live in Southern California and am really close to buying one of the 500 launch editions that they'll be selling in the U.S. I'm waiting for a white one, but the only ones available here in the few dealerships in the Los Angeles area have all been the two reds. Here's the strange part. I'm...
  15. Who wants to give up our Nukes now ?

    Poll Room
    There has always been a group of people who think giving up our independent nuclear deterrent would somehow make us safe. I've never believed this, I always thought if someone launched a first strike against us I would want to make sure they were blown to oblivion too.
  16. I give up with this car !!!! Do not buy VN11XOO

    Alfa Giulietta
    Well thats it I hate this car!!!! After 35mths with this heap of s*it its finally pushed me over the edge. Going to work Thur (Warwick to Gravesend) the steering wheel controls failed On the way back home the bluetooth failed, phone will connect but calls will not come through the stereo, and...
  17. No new Giulia so give me ideas please.

    General Motoring Discussion
    It's almost funny that I took my 58 plate 159Ti (Sept 08 to non UK members) over 3 years having been assured it's replacement was due in 2011. The sorry tale of the Giulia's postponement is well documented, of course. Sadly, I can wait no longer than another 5 months to replace my much loved Ti...

  20. Give the wife my Gta for the first time

    Alfa GTA
    Left the key with the missus and took the other car to work. The 70 mile per day commute is taking its toll she only does 5 mile so it makes sense....doesn't it?? Only a short distance but it's littered with square speed bumps. Fingers crossed.
