    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I'm preparing to replace my plugs and to get to the back 3 I need to remove the inlet manifold that sits over them. Is there a gasket here? I'm struggling to find one and don't want to take things apart to find I need to get something I don't have to hand...

  4. M3 GTS. BMW plays TopTrumps at the ring

    General Motoring Discussion
    There . A thread of its own instead of being in a Design thread. Still, flattering of BMW to acknowledge Alfa is still hanging on in there.
  5. Need help deciding between two GTs

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello from Turkey, I've got the following 'problem': I have decided to but an Alfa Romeo GT and have been sourcing the interweb and the classifieds for about 5-6 months now. After inspecting and test driving nearly any and everyone I could find I have managed to narrow it down to two...
  6. Alfa GTs attracting test pilots

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    So I had my GT 3.2 up for sale a couple of weeks ago and I've just let the adverts lapse. For some reason these cars just seem to attract test pilots from all corners of the earth! I really don't know if I can be bothered to go through the whole selling process with time-wasters like these...

  9. Underbody rust on 156s & GTs

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Has anyone contacted/challenged Alfa(FIAT) on the matter of sub-standard underbody treatment? As 3 year warranty and then whistle is not really on. I had not realised that its that widely known about patchy underbody sealing. On my first new cars in the 80s I used to get undersealed, but...
  10. Should I swap my GTs 18" alloys form the 159s 17"

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I'm buying a 159 this week and have the option of swapping my GTs 18" alloys with new tyres for the 159s 17" alloys with good tyres. Will this make the ride worse ? Will it effect the speedo? Can it actually be done?
  11. Dogs and GTs

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    My wife and I are considering a new car for her to replace her Panda 100HP. We have two medium/large dogs (lab/retriever) and wondered whether two dogs in the back would be possible with the shelf removed? We also have an estate so it wouldn't be for anything other than local drives to the...
  12. Selling Alfa Romeo GTs

    General Alfa Discussion
    Hi I've owned an Alfa Romeo GT for about 3 years now, and have loved the drive. However, I have to now enrol in my company car scheme so have to sell mine. What is generally the best way to sell them? I've rang garages but they seem to be not keen on taking on an Alfa. It's a decent car. Full...
  13. Do all 170hp GTs have the Q2 LSD?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    After much research and deliberation I have just bought my first Alfa - a GT with Sport button, advertised and showing photos as a Q2 version. After getting it home I realised there were some discrepancies, i.e. no Q2 badge on the boot and no red stitching on the leather (I kniow I should have...
  14. What else fits GTs

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Any info gladly received Thought it would be straightforward to order a parcel shelf clip from dealer until he said it was unavailable separately, then found out later on the web that another dealer lists it as a 147/GT part so order it up, no problems. Then found it is also identical to a...
  15. Teach me what I need to know about GTs

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Been thinking to get a GT as a replacement for my 156 Sportwagon, but don't know too much about them. Looking for something 2006ish, circa 70k on the clock, fast but not too thirsty. What are the models - in 156 land there are Turismo, Lusso, Veloce. What to look out for. What to avoid ( ie I...
  16. Post your lowered Alfa GTs!

    Motoring Images
    I'm looking to get some Eibach Pro-Kit springs for my JTD GT, but finding pics of them is hard. My main concern is that the rear of my car is higher than the front, so I'm hoping Eibachs will even it out (I'm sure they do things like -35mm rear, -25mm front type drops). Even if it's a case of...
