  2. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, sorry to spam everyone... The second problem I am having with my 147 Q2 is that when you go up hills it makes a noise like a squealing belt. Usually only when you are using the torque and not when you just rev it which makes me think it isn't the aux belt. I have been told by alfatechnico...
  3. General Alfa Discussion
    Hello again everyone! Some of you may remember a teaser video that I posted earlier featuring the awesome 164 QV. Well, my friends and I have been hard at work and we are finally able to unveil the video showing the Alfa where it is meant to be: not in a garage, but out on the open road! (I...
  4. Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Yesterday I twice had to reverse up steep inclines and both times I got really bad clutch burn. Anyone else notice this? (Never had it on the Brera.) If I don't give it some gas the car stalls. Giving it more revs and clutch burn ensues. It's not the 1st time I've noticed it.... Bad...
  5. North West
    Now then playmates, time for us to blow away the cobwebs and welcome in 2009 as we mean to go on - with a meet and a drive :D So this month it's gonna be at the Grey Mare Inn between Blackburn and Haslingden.

Driving from Oldham to Stafford yesterday & there was hardly any acceleration between the gears, when I eventually got to 50/60mph the car seemed okay...

  9. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Just got back from the lake district, over the last 3 days I did about 100 miles going up and down huge hills in 2nd-3rd and the remaining 280 miles barreling down the motorway and A road network with my speed camera detector on! All in it did 280 on £48 of regular unleaded giving 37mpg. Not...

  11. International Events
    Hi all. I would like to invite everyone along to the Chiltern Hills Rally on 16 May 2004. This event is normally reserved for pre 1985 cars, however, I have "acquired" an exemption for any Italian car old or new for this year's event. At this point, I should probably admit to being a member...

    Took the 145 up the mountains last night and I was very surprised by the amount of snow up there. At least 2/3 inches in places. Perfected the stationary handbrake-turn... where you lock the handbrake and the front wheels either left or right, and use the power of the spinning wheels to doughnut...
