  1. Adjusting the headlights on my 159

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi! Does somebody know how to adjust the hights of the low beam on a 159? The right side points way too low and the left side is normal. Haven't realized it until I changed the low beams to h7 xenon. I have checked that the bulb is firmly in place. I tried to turn the long bolt coming from the...

  4. Headlights

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all First post/question re my new GTA. I would post in the GTA thread but it's a 156 and this issue might be relatively common across the range. Theres loads of condensation inside my off side front headlight. Is there a easy fix/reason for this? It's got factory Xenons if that makes any...

    Hi all, has anyone swapped standard headlights on their grey GT for blackline versions (with the black inserts), I'm after some replacements (mine are slightly pitted but work fine, I'm just wanting some brand spankers!) and wondered what they would look like, im half thinking they will make the...

  7. Turn off headlights function when unlocking

    Alfa Giulietta
    Can’t find anything in the handbook or online - does anyone know if I can kill the function where the headlights come on whenever it’s unlocked? And going to be doing a bi xenon conversion and don’t want the lights coming on unnecessarily.
  8. Headlights

    Alfa MiTo
    Does anyone have experience in obtaining a Spanish ITV on a rhd mito? Headlights needing altered from what I gather they need replaced? Also reverse light and fog light on the rear needing replaced also? Any experience with this or can the headlights be altered. Nothing obvious from what I can...

    Hi, New to the forum. I am moving to Spain and in order to obtain and ITV (equivalent Spanish MOT). The headlights need to be altered or replaced on my 2012 1.3 diesel Mito. Because it’s rhd and needs the beam changed, I called Alfa Edinburgh and they reckoned there is a switch behind the...
  10. Auto Headlights - Fog

    Alfa Giulia
    Is there any setting that can be adjusted for the headlights to come on in the fog? I've noticed they don't and also noticed this on a lot of other cars on the mway too, so it's not an Alfa thing but I don't agree that they shouldn't be on when the visibility isn't clear...

  12. Alfa 159 glass headlights possible?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    The Alfa 159 has a good headlight construction that is easily polished and replaced if needed but the one thing that bothers me is that the front piece is made out of transparent plastic and plastic yellows over time, each year I have to polish away the protective film and replace it, its...
  13. Terrible Headlights

    Alfa Giulietta
    Is it me, or are the Headlights on the Giulietta absolute rubbish. The LED strips put out more light than the actual full and main beams do, most of the time. It's a 2012 giulietta, but I was wondering if you guys had any advice on how to improve them?
  14. Best Headlight Bulbs for 147 recommendation?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello, My Headlight's are incredibly dim on my 2001 147 and I'm pretty certain they are decent enough ones. They've been on there a while though. At least they are lasting! These days a lot of cars seem to have their full beam lights on but it turns out they are just bright headlights...
  15. Xenon Headlights?

    Alfa Giulia
    I have the 25w Xenons on my Veloce. I nipped into town today and when I was walking back to the car, the sun was low in the sky and shining directly at the front of the car. As I got closer to the car I noticed some kind of distortion in the headlight lenses. On closer inspection both lenses...

  17. Bi-Xenon Headlights on QV - QUestion?

    Alfa Giulia
    Have just travelled to and from Edinburgh last week. Late night driving over the A68 which is normally pleasant when not freezing cold. Anyhow, I have noticed that a number of motorist flash me when driving even when the lights are not on full beam. To the point I stopped the car to check if I...
