  1. General Motoring Discussion
    Rush (2013) - IMDb Could be interesting, a great rivalry and two personalities who I'd like to know more about (Hunt - posh, selfish git, or charming playboy? And Lauda - how incredibly driven must he have been) Looks like what passes for an A list cast these days and its a big Hollywood...
  2. Republic of Ireland
    Hello all, So, after much hunting, and much advice from people on here and the other board (the likes of Mario, Lacken, Pendragon and others) I have found myself a new Alfa to replace my ageing 156. Here she is (hope the link to the photo works): twoalfas | Flickr - Photo Sharing! It's...
  3. South Africa
    I looked at a GTV6 on Saturday 1983 ALFA ROMEO GTV 2.5 - Cape Town / Western Cape used car for sale - Gumtree Cape Town / Western Cape Free Classifieds . The ad wording, pic and price of R 49000 suggested that it was in good nick, but when I got there I was disappointed. Starting the car took a...

  5. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi All, I have been scouring this excellent forum for a several months now, gaining valuable insight into the pros and cons of owning a piece of Italian exotica in the shape of a 2.4 Brera which I fully intend to be sitting in within the next month, despite the protests of the wife! My budget...
  6. Alfa GTA
    Currently selling my facelift 156 1.8 t-spark and am on the hunt for a 147 GTA... What are the chances of finding a good one for £5k?
  7. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Whilst looking for a leak with the car on a ramp my mechanic found it to be PS fluid. he showed me from underneath a rubber pipe near the oil cooler coming up towards the front of the car this then joins a metal ( monkey?? his words) pipe that has about a 45 degree bend before going further up...
  8. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hey guys. So I posted a thread earlier about a rattle that i thought was coming from the wiper motor area. I've re-fitted all this and sill the noise exsists, so I HAVE to belive that it is in the cabing behind the dash somplace.. It only occurs when the car is in motion and sounds like a...
  9. International Motor Sport
    Anybody else see this great documentary on ITV last night, it was the year 1976, and showed both James Hunt and Barry Sheene at their best, when they both won their respective Drivers Championships. Some of the archive footage was brilliant, to see them ( and others ) walking around the pits...
  10. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Just seen a vela blue one in Henley, lovely car with Q2 diff etc. The only thing worrying me is a slight rattle at idle from cambelt area. The belt was changed 2 years ago but the waterpump has never been changed. Seen quite a few but never heard this sound before. Normally i would never...
  11. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    ....because I've just spent a day driving the 1750. What a revelation. After years of bemoaning the fact that all of my Alfas have been so close to perfection yet irritatingly flawed in many respects this car is a breath of fresh air. Almost as much pull as my old 2.4 without that heavy lump up...
  12. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi all, have to say I'm getting pretty excited about the weekend, I've got 3 TS GTVs to look at. 1. Silver/Black leather (classy but a bit safe combo)- 2000. low-ish millage, pic's look good but its the most expensive out of the 3 2. Blue/Cream leather (combo looks great in photos, don't know...
  13. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Since having my Alfaholics/Ragazzon cat/full exhaust system fitted a few months ago I've experienced very slight hunting. Once warmed up the engine will idle a bit low - probably around 650-700rpm and fluctuate as little as 50+rpm. The engine was perfectly smooth before the new cat/exhaust was...
  14. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello all, My 147 has an actuator fault and it needs replaced. I wasn't surprised to hear that this would be £1000 odd to buy and replace. Do any of you know where I can pick up an actuator for a decent price? I managed to find one place called Alfa City who normally sells new for £300 but they...
  15. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    here it is.....assuming you're car doesn;t have air con if it has aircon then there is NO J35, just a connector.
  16. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi Today started my hunt for series 2 Spider (S to X reg) and what a waste of time. Found a silver 2.0 Lusso one (want a red though), trek into West London today in the rain to look at it - found the following things and would really value input from the Forum Wipers didn’t work - fuse? /...
  17. Introduce Yourself
    Hi all thought I'd introduce myself, been lurking on here for a few weeks checking things out, looking for a 2.4jtd 156 so as always I've been doing my homework first. Love the forum, I'm currently a Fiat Coupe Club guy but time for something more sensible and I couldn't stand to move away from...
  18. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, I'm playing hunt-the-ECU on the 156 I'm breaking :lol: I've found a white one behind the glove box, P/N 60663044. I'm presuming this is the engine management ECU. There's one under the parcel shelf, P/N 60670721 with a frequency marking of 433.92MHz, which must be something to do with...
  19. General Alfa Discussion
    The Silver lining following my crash today may well come in the shape of a 159Ti (in Red of course). I'd want a petrol, probably a 2.2. The strange thing is only last week I was talking to Tim Hulbert (ex- JCS Kegworth) now at the new Notts dealer(Chris Variava??) about doing a swap. Decided...
