    Mods, I hope this is not against the forum rules but I did have a search and others have been permitted to post on the general forums when selling. Apologies if that is not the case. It's taken me a few weeks to decide but I have reluctantly come to the decision to sell my beloved Quadrifoglio...
  2. Alfa Giulietta
    So I've been a complete idiot and used a pressure washer at close range around a stone chip. Only had the car 7 months and I've peeled away a section of lacquer ? I'm guessing a respray of the bonnet (and side panels?) is required? Any recommendations in the central Scotland area if so?
  3. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    My daily 159 needs a fair bit of work to get through the MOT. I'm self employed and things are tight at the minute. So with much regret I've had to do this. I spent many months looking for this car and it's been a joy to own. Huge history file and she's wanted for nothing. Plenty of upgrades...
  4. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, Yesterday while going on the M11 I had an accident. I was on the inside lane when the traffic on the outside lane (there are only 2 lanes) slowed a lot. Suddenly a car on the outside lane swerved without indicating or looking into my lane when I was about to go past it. I pressed the brakes...

  6. Alfa 164 & 166
    Hi all, I have been contemplating stepping back into the world of the mighty 166 (see my other post about this!). I really want a 2.0 Facelift in superb condition and with sensible miles as I do a fair amount myself. I was looking at one on Ebay a few weeks ago but it sold. I don't normally...
  7. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Gutted one thing after another recently with the Alfa, there's been a dull noise on the Alfa when driving this week really annoying, I've had it checked and the gear box is on its way out. I've got warranty just hope it covers there or there abouts. Surely I have to have some luck with it.rwally...

    Hi all I’m a long time reader but a first time poster Went for very short Test drive on a Veloce G on sat evening (50mile drive away) this wast the 2nd G I have drove.. I went out with the salesman and at the time I thought it seemed slow and performance lacking compared to the last one I drove...
  12. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Unfortunately due to moving abroad I am going to have to sell the car. Once I get her MOT'd next week she will be going up for sale on Pistonheads. People have suggested storage, getting someone to look after her but with the chance of getting a tax free car where I'm going (Germany) I'm...
  13. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Find out in the next month, but might have to move abroad because of work. Spent months finding a low mileage Cup up to my standards, and found her (Still only done 53,000 miles) £450 on an exhaust, new pads, discs and stereo later and I find out I might be off to Germany in September. Gutted...
  14. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Driving the car home tonight and there was a horrible knocking noise, then the car ground to a halt. Looked underneath and could see oil. The engine won't turn over now. Probably need a new engine. Can someone shine some light on how much to rebuild or buy a decent engine. Many thanks kev
  15. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Evening all, So I was on my way to, would you believe it, an Alfa dealer to see about getting a brand new MiTo. Pulled out onto a roundabout and I get a bunch of beeps, Motor Control System Failure, and a total loss of power. Stuck in the middle of the roundabout, luckily a police officer was...
  16. Alfa MiTo
    Pulling out of a junction into queuing traffic this morning my Mito got hit :(. Its slightly complicated, but the road I was pulling onto had a queue on it for some traffic lights (its the same most mornings) I have to cross traffic to join the queue. There were a number of cars parked down the...
  17. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    After getting my old girl fixed up to pass her MOT a few months back i am now faced with saying goodbye again. Think the head gasket has gone but i am a little confused and could do with bowing down to the wisdom on here! Checked my oil and water the day before it happened. Oil fine, water...
  18. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Took my 13 year old 156 for an MOT at Autolusso today, a good 142 mile round trip. Failed on: -O/S front lower wishbone, excessive play in rear sub frame bush -O/S front upper wishbone excessive play in pin bush Advisories: Barely scraped through emissions test Rear O/S trailing arm slight...
  19. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    The Brera Tractor S has just been driven away by it's new owner and I think it's the first time I've been gutted when selling a car. Still, I'm not going anywhere as my real Brera S is sitting on the drive looking good too. Don't feel the same love for it yet, maybe because of all the effort...
  20. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Dear all, I had my Alfa 156 in garage today and have no choice but to scrap it as the throttle something has gone and it costs £650.00 plus VAT to repair!!!! If anyone is interested in anything, please let me know. Many thanks
