  2. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, I have a 156 1.6ts sportwagon I only brought it 5 days ok, and today decided to check the oil, and wow, thank goodness I did! The dipstick had a tiny drip of oil on the very tip, and it took a full 2 litres of castrol magnatex to get it up near the second dot on the dipstick :eek: Now...
  3. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi. I was washing my 08 Lusso and noticed I could fit my hand between tyre and rear arch on the offside but not on the near side. On closer inspection I can fit two fingers in the near side yet four on the offside? However on the front it's the other way. Two fingers on offside four on the near...
  4. Alfa 164 & 166
    Could the next big Alfa be based on this monstrous american Chrysler that is badged as a Lancia Thema in europe ? We will still get it as a Chrysler here in uk. I used to like the original 80s/90s Thema and owned a couple but if it were badged as a Lancia in this country i still wouldnt have one...

  6. Introduce Yourself
    Well fellow Alfa owners. I have been a 'Ford' man for years. All of the many new cars that I have purchased every 3 to 5 years over many years (I'm 56 yrs old) have been Fords. In needing a second smaller car, I have fallen in love with the looks, features and drive of the Mito. Despite the...

  8. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Right guys, hopefully someone has got an idea on this one. I was cleaning my new (to me) 156 1.8ts sportwagon and had the bonnet up and had taken off the engine cover to give it a clean as it was filthy, went in for lunch and my 2 year old turned on the garden sprinkler as we have had new turf...
  9. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    I'm feeing pretty lousy, after my clutch and dmf went early I panicked and decided my bella had to go ... guess I have just lost confidence I'm worried that the gearbox is a when not if this side of a cambelt service, or steering rack; both expensive jobs. I'm just out of 4th year warranty...

    .....follow this trend to adorn their cars with LED lights, front of some (Err German) cars look real blingy. In fact when I see some I cant help think of 'Big Fat Gypsy Wedding'!:lol:

  13. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Just to let you know that I still have my Sail Blue Alfa 156 2.4JTD 150, September 2003, and it has 57000 miles only on the clock. I would not part with it for anything even though it goes through Front Suspension Bushes like there is no tomorrow. I also had to replace the rear Engine Mount...

  16. Introduce Yourself
    Hey all, Just a message to say from Cape Town, South Africa. For as long as I can remember I've wanted an Alfa, I'm hoping this year I'd be able to afford my first one! So I'll be trawling the forums looking for sound advice (I hope)... I can't afford a new one so I'll more than likely be...

    Ciao. I am currently driving a FIAT Coupe 20vt and still loving it. Owned before an Alfa Romeo Berlina 2000 many years ago? Currently may be looking to get a 159 and hoping to find out more about it.

  19. Introduce Yourself
    Hi, I've just bought my first Alfa last week, a GT 1.9 JTD. I've already spent a while looking around the forum before signing up today, and have found it a great source of information. Unluckily for me I think I'm going to be a regular user of technical advice as the 47k miles my car has...
