  1. Recent Alfa purchase, was bound to happen

    Introduce Yourself
    Hi, I've recently bought an Alfa Mito 135 distinctive, not my first Italian car but the first Alfa. However given my family history I was always likely to end up with one at some point... My dad owned several minis in his youth, but when my mum was expecting me he needed something bigger and...
  2. What's happen to the squadra 916 forum

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi guys, any new on thes squadra916 forum, nothing come up at all when I Google it now Thanks Jon
  3. Gutted, but needs to happen :-(

    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. despite what they say it does happen....

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    after a phone call from my OH to say the PH2 GTV was overheating I thought I knew what was going on.... symptoms. overheating under load, overheating afert about 10 mins of idle from cold, fans kicking as and when they are supposed to but has no effect, burped the system just to make sure it...
  5. A 2007 Twinspark selespeed ?? (how this this happen ?)

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Have a look at this very pretty 156: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Alfa-Romeo-156-/182173274689?hash=item2a6a5f9241:g:mzUAAOSwGYVXDLLg It is a 2007 Selespeed. Seing as how the exterior is the facelift, it was obviously produced after 2002/3. It also has Selespeed (so is a two litre, and should be...
  6. How did that happen

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi all My Brera has recently had a new timing belt (which was needed) to cure a prolonged misfire and wobble felt at around 1500 rpm, short while later problem returned, changed plugs and coil pack, no change engine light back on and wobble continued. Ordered replacement fuel injectors as final...
  7. Does this happen with Alfas?

    General Motoring Discussion
    Was very surprised to see such mundane cars being worth stealing. Do Alfas get knicked like this? Should I be worried about my GTV on the drive? :smoker: Crazy for Cortinas: The 80s cars targeted by thieves - BBC News
  8. How does this happen.

    South Africa
    I wont lie I am ****** irritated at the moment. Park the GTV 2 weeks ago (didn't use it last week because I was riding the Cycle Tour) and all was well, the car was running superbly. Get into it this evening, put my foot on the clutch, nothing, peddle drops to the floor. Ok I pump it a bit...
  9. hopefully things happen in 3's

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    from going 18 months without a fault ive had a puncture, windcreen replacement and airbag fault inside a month. all of which are now resolved (good mate of mine has the snap on ecu system for the airbag). my mot is next month so hopefully no more surprises happy motoring everyone :)
  10. oh well, after 11 years it was bound to happen - 166 3.0 manual Super Lusso For Sale

    Alfa 164 & 166
    Well chaps, I guess it was bound to happen eventually. After 11 years of 166 ownership, all with the same car, it's time to sell undoubtedly the most characterful car I've ever owned, the only car I've ever taken over the 100K mark (and the only car I've ever driven more than 100K in). The V5...
  11. how the hell did that happen

    The Technology Section
    alfa4ever is back:eek:
  12. What will happen if I blank my EGR?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I have a blanking plate and want to see if it has any beneficial effect on starting and the poor throttle response I am getting at low revs (2.4 brera). If I fit it without a remap or a dongle I know it will bring up a fault but will it put the car in limp mode? Can I just keep deleting the...
  13. Why has this been allowed to happen!!!

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Why has this ever been allowed to happen to a Brera?!!!! :vomit:
  14. Well, it was bound to happen

    Republic of Ireland
    Not a happy lad tonight. Reversed into the wall at the front of the house. 1 [email protected]%!#%#%@#ing second for not paying attention. Anyone know of a bodyshop around Dublin ? I also had planned for a timing belt and 2 buckled wheels that ruined tyres. FFS :( Dent - Imgur (Some pictures for...
  15. How did that happen?

    General Motoring Discussion
    My sister-in-law went out with her husband to get a new car. She went out looking for a small white VW (possible Polo) and came back with black Jag XK :wow:
  16. Why does this have to happen?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    So I park up at a friend's house before coming back to find this very nice scratch. :cry: :mad: and :rant: Thankfully it's on the bumper and not the bodywork. Why does have to happen, I'm always careful around other people's cars but I see that not everyone thinks this way. Anyway, does anyone...

    Motoring Images
    but I'm no longer an Alfa owner, today I said goodbye to my bella Sophia and said hello to this little rocket Carlo.
  18. It's starting to happen......

    Introduce Yourself
    Hi all....I've never joined an owners/enthusiasts club before but ..... The GTV dream (probably a 2.0L) is starting to happen..... I've owned a few cars over the years, none of them an Alfa. I'm now at the point where I don't do school runs, big weekly shops, or even car sharing for work. I...

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Hi all, It was a quiet day in the office today and I seem to have bought an S3 Spider on eBay! :cool::eek::lol::cheese::D The photos look great and it has 7 months MoT and some tax. What could possibly go wrong :) Pick up on Wednesday Could somone point me in the direction for the best...
