  2. Wonky clock hands

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    On the Alfetta saloon there's an analogue clock in the middle of the instrument binnacle. I noticed yesterday that mine was set to the wrong time, so I pushed the button and turned it to set the hands. The minute hand turned, but the hour hand stayed pointing resolutely straight down, at the...

    General Motoring Discussion
    Court ruling means that police will now be able to ticket les-têtes-de-bite divers who stop on the road to talk on their phones without using HF. :thumbs:
  4. Hands Free Radio

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I would like to fit a hands free music system to my 147 so I can connect my phone for hands free calling. Its a 2005 facelift model. I've seen a few original Alfa systems for sale but I'm unsure if they will fit straight in or indeed if they are any good. The one's I've seen look like I...
  5. Hands off

    General Motoring Discussion
    Somehow this doesn't make me feel very safe at all. Seriously, I think this is a dangerous technology. Now, maybe it's just me, but if I'm not engaged in the driving--paying attention to the traffic around me, feeling the road, getting tactile feedback from the car--the odds are pretty good...

  7. Hands up if you - or your car - can't wait for an Easter weekend wash

    General Motoring Discussion
    I so hope the weather is going to be good next weekend because I want to wash and polish the car. It is filthy, having not seen a spong since...October. I know, I know...there's algae (?) either side of the roof rails, the sunroof surround, the rubber trims on the lower parts of the windows...

    Had a couple of minutes on my hands and decided to do some searching on YouTube. This is one of the best sounding clips I've heard in a long time
  10. H&S Corse EVO Stage 1?

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Anyone here got one (more aimed at the other Dutch users on the board I suppose). My 2.0 needs a cambelt service any time now, my local guy (non specialist, but v. good) charges €600. H&S Corse are a well trusted and supremely knowledgeable specialist based at the other end of the country from...
  11. Put your hands together for the V6 166

    Alfa 164 & 166
    Now that Brent crude is threatening the 166 to the title of best ever in depreciation....will the Brits in general be soon clamouring to own one, thus driving the prices up? Well, I think we all know the answer to that....but look at it this way... We can still drive round in our 50p beauties...

  15. Headlight Bulb Change: hands too big!!!

    I hope someone here can help lol I'm trying to change the headlight bulb but my big shovel hands are too big to squeeze the clip and push it in far enough to unclip it... :cheese: Is there a trick to getting the clip off, or am I going to have to rely on my girlfriend to try and do it after she...
  16. in car hands free?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, i have a 147 and have a quick (probably stupid) question about a small panel on the inside roof. It is where for example the sun roof controls may exist (if there were as sunroof....). However, it looks like it contains 3 speakers as if it may be for a hands free/ phone connection...
  17. I think I've got too much time on my hands..

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    OK, hands up all those who have changed injectors on a JTS. Because I think I will keep my 156 for some time I have bought a set of injectors and have had them cleaned etc.. I was looking on eLearn to check out what the job entails, and it shows a removal tool gizmo. My question is, do I need to...
