    Hi everyone. New to the forum :-) Picked up my first Alfa two days ago! It's a 2.0 JTDM 170 Veloce with a few nice additions. My girlfriend has owned a MiTo for four years and my Dad had a few 156s prior to that, so it's long overdue that I've joined the club. Mine has 43k miles on it and...

    Hi Guys So this morning an older lady in a white Honda decided that the rear bumper of my Guilietta needed some adjustments. So I've reported the incident and thankfully the boot is fine. Its just the bumper that needs to be replaced. Insurance has asked me to get a quote, so I need to know a...

  10. Alfa Giulietta
    I traded in my beloved 105k mile Brera S for a Honda Civic type S GT in November, I am not enjoying the gutless, rattly, badly built Civic so today I have put down a deposit on a Guilietta 170 multiair Sportiva in white with red leather and the 5 hole 18" alloys. I don't like the standard...

    There was unexpected gratitude at Honda today, when Mercedes-Benz unwittingly announced a replacement for the 1994 Honda Civic coupe. Called the C-Class Coupe, the car has been designed to look exactly like its 18 year old predecessor, thus saving Honda the effort of having to replace its own...

  15. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I noted that a (South African member of another Alfa forum?) posted he had undertaken a conversion of his 3.0L V6 to a 3.6L via the following route: "3.6 has an Alfa 3.0 crank, BMW 330i rods, Honda vtr1000 bike pistons (super-high tech cast ally piston), and M3 bearings" :cool: On the surfcae...

    Hmmm, I'm still Alfaless despite many temptations (mainly abused 156s with less than truthful sellers) so to relieve my trusty ol' Merc of daily duties I've got my hands on a '99 Prelude. So, what do I think? Well, it's kinda ok. Goes well enough and is in decent nick. 128k miles and some...

    anyone driven one of these and if so first impression ? The basic model looks a lot of car for 17K but you don't see many around ( is that good or bad ) and their forum seems to carry a common moan about lack of power.Its 1.5 litre + electric boost so shouldn't be that lacking. On the other...

    Last year I sold the GTV for a 406. Recently sold it as the lower engine mount was shot, the doors were rusting like a Merc, the paintwork was horrenous at trying to patch it up, and I'd managed to wear down 4 reasonably fresh tyres during the winter :eek: So on the look out for a big comfy...
