  1. Looking for a good home for a Ti 1750Tbi and spares

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I'm looking for a new home for my Alfa 159 1750Tbi SW Ti (2010, 10 Plate) with 108k, along with the extensive spares package in the form a 159 2.0 Jdtm (2010 59 Plate) for 230k and a seized turbo. I've got the possibility of a company Tesla, and with tax rules changing this could be...
  2. Akhan 100CHM01 Coming / Leaving Home Module

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hello, Has anyone given this module a try? Apparently it's a retrofit to allow automatic coming home/leaving home lights, a feature which has only been half assedly implemented (in my opinion anyway) in 159/Brera (and probably others too) Think I'll give this a go at some point...

  6. Networky Wi-Fi and an old BT home hub.

    The Technology Section
    The shed up the garden is out of Wi-Fi range. My plan is to use a power line adaptor from the DSL/Home hub and pop one in the socket in the shed. I then want the hub to broadcast the Wi-Fi signal, but I am worried that it won't be slaved correctly. What do I need to do?
  7. I keep driving home the long way...

    Introduce Yourself
    I’ve recently moved behind the wheel of a 2008 159 2.2 JTS Lusso in Rosso Rubinio - and have fallen in love. I live in the Lake District National Park, so have access to unbelievable back roads and passes - driver heaven. We’ve made a few refurbishments, and plan to make more in the near future...
  8. New home needed for 2.2 Brera Prodrive

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Finally I've got round to putting one of my 2 Brera 2.2 in the classified section to see how things go here before trying Autotrader. I've looked at comparable Prodrive prices on there and I reckon whoever gets this one is in for a good deal. Most of my friends (both of them in fact!) say I...

  11. New home needed for a Pair of Front 159 TI Springs

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Having just fitted new Eibach Springs and B4 Dampers, I have 2 Alfa original front springs from my wife's 159 SW TI that are just 12 months old and have covered just over 7000 miles. I'm guessing that they will also fit a 159 Saloon TI. After being stung for £290 by Alfa just for the springs...
  12. 166 TS Facelift Looking For a New Home

    Alfa 164 & 166
    With a heavy heart I've reluctantly decided to sell my 166 TS, it's my second 166 but I need to own a V6 Busso before they all disappear. It has to be a facelift ideally 2005/6. Anyone looking to part with one? I've put mine on ebay as a no reserve auction - let's see where it goes.
  13. Cat back ss exhaust free to good home!

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi-had a single silencer stainless cat back system on my V6 spider when I bought it, but I fitted a Wizard cat back and sold the car with the wizard on. If anybody wants it, either come and get it, or arrange a courier pick up and it's yours. It's just lying around now and it would be nice to...
  14. Don't try this at home . .. unless you have a spare key

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    In an attempt to work out where the rumbling bearing noise was coming from, a wheel or the power take off box for the 4WD, I jacked my Q4 up and supported it over my pit so all four wheels were clear of the ground. Then started it, placed it in gear and went under for a listen. Surprised to...
  15. Free to a good home...

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    My New Years resolution to stop buying stuff for the Alfas until I’ve got round to fitting all the bits I’ve already got lasted about 3 day’s until I bought a ragazzon unsilenced backbox for the GTV and a set of 17s for the Spider. My resolution to get rid of all the stuff I won’t use and make...
  16. Phase 3 Spider owners manual - free to a good home

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Like the heading says I've got a Phase 3 Spider owners manual in mint condition. I've found the right one for my car (Phase 2b) so no longer need it. If anyone wants it I'm prepared to give it away as long as whomever wants it covers the shipping.

  18. Best home cinema?

    The Technology Section
    I have a tech query... I currently have an ageing Sony 5.1 amp system, which has connectivity issues. You can't get the speaker cables for less than ridiculous prices (as they have Sony only connections).
  19. Follow me home

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    So on my 159 i get the word follow me home pop up from time to time after i parked. So erm it comes on when it feels like it ? Or am i missing a trick and turned it on some where by mistake?
  20. Driving home and snapped a wishbone!

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi guys, a eventful evening driving home from work, cruising along the motorway and thud! Not sure if I have hit something, Debye? as that's what it felt like under the car however I certainly didn't see anything so rather odd. The road surface is also very poor in places on the m1, they are...
