  1. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Following some quite intense motivation from fellow Alfisti as a result of their significant lockdown sprucing, I've caved in and admitted there are areas of the 156 that could be improved. It goes to Dan shortly for a service which seemed a great opportunity to do some totally unnecessary work...

    After taking the GTA out for it's weekly run, to stop everything seizing up, I noticed some condensation in the speedo and rev dials (more so in the rev counter). Not much, but it isn't something I recall seeing before. In fairness it was as wet a day as we've had recently, but, the carpets are...

    As most GTA and 3.2 owners know, the dreaded timing belt engine mount (60655868) has been out of production from Alfa for quite some time. Whilst there is a smattering of companies able to refurbish old mounts, there is nothing in the aftermarket. AlfaWorkshop and E.B. Spares do however have an...

    Is there anybody that knows where i could find a bodykit that resembles the original GTA design, other than the MM one. So far I found body kits/parts from Cadamuro and MM and nice looking front splitter from maxton design. If there's someone out there who knows anything similar ( but not...

    Calling all people with those wonderful restoration wizardry skills... I've bought a pair of used GTA xenon headlight units. One is a bit scabby as you can see in the images but they were cheap and will serve as a good source of spares. The lenses I'm comfortable with as I know they can come off...

    Evening all, New to the forum but a long time lurker. I've just been for a run in my GTA and after stopping off at my parents and trying to start the car the engine is turning but mot firing. I've read the codes and it's P0335 crankshaft position sensor malfunction. Does anyone know where this...
  7. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Calling all pre-facelift 156 owners with Xenon lights, are the headlight units specific for LHD and RHD cars? ePer suggests so but I'm curious to know the difference, are the igniters angled differently or something to give the correct beam pattern or is beam pattern etc controlled entirely by...

    Today's little job was to replace the long roof seal that goes from the top of the front wing back along the roof to the rear door handle. Amazingly you can still get these and it's quite a nice easy job compared to other seals on the 156. So for those interested or thinking of doing this job...

    Good to see these commanding strong money, but this... is very strong. 30-odd thousand miles is low and there can't be many with that mileage. Be interesting to see if it sells...

    My wiper mechanism has been threatening to give up recently (I think it's the motor), thankfully the parts shed has come to the rescue as I managed to get one from Partsworld a while back. The part I bought was GTA specific if you're interested although I'm not sure what the difference is -...
  11. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi ! I created this post because I want to build my car in a GTA style. I would like to asking where to order GTA bodykit which is good quality, and relatively inexpensive. And I would even like to ask if the fenders are wider than the factory 156, and also the track width? Thanks in advance...
  12. Alfa GTA
    Evening Alfisti, I'm hoping that after Dan's treatment my GTA will be nearly finished, or at least the big work will be finished, key word being hope. My question is what does everyone do when it comes to cosmetics, specifically in a couple of areas. With regards to the fuel rails how do...

    If you had bought a used steering rack for a 156 GTA, are there any identifying features you could look for to confirm it was indeed a 156 GTA rack as opposed to a GT or 147 rack? I would have tried to measure the rack ends but they seem to have fused with the track rod end... I presume there is...

    Afternoon Alfisti, How do we all feel about Jetfins on a 156 GTA? Would you always stay with the standard Teledials or if the opportunity came up would you consider Jetfins? For my own understanding: 1. I presume the ride is a little harsher as there is less tyre sidewall? 2. Would you have...

    Please tell me I'm not the only one using a GTA as a daily! Does anyone have any tips regarding cleaning the underside and generally keeping the rust at bay during the winter months Sent from my LYA-L09 using Tapatalk

    There is a used, working ecu available on Alfabook (James Lawson) £995.
  19. Introduce Yourself
    Just purchased a 147 GTA from auction in Japan. This is my first Alfa! The car will be making it's way to Canada sometime in December. Currently sitting on 18,000km, excited to get her tucked away in the garage over winter and then put some miles on her in the spring time! I'm sure there is...

    I've been offered a Solus at a reasonable price and just wondered if anybody has used one of these with a GTA and what's the coverage like?
