  1. This is going to hurt!

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    The spider is booked in for what I was hoping was going to be a lower half tidy up. To save a bit of labour charges I thought I'd get some of the prep done so I removed the splash guards and the layers of underseal. Before I started they looked ok but this is what I've uncovered, it's the same...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Had a second of concentration lapse, and my 159 slammed into the central island on a residential road, at 15-20 mph. The result, is frontal damage, driver side, where the bumper seems to have cracked underneath. Also, the bottom guard is broken into pieces. The air filter housing completely...

    General Alfa Discussion
    Just down my street... Nobody is seriously hurt but still... Old Benz mows down 13 children, achieving what seems to be the intended purpose of its front grille. Owner had stalled trying to reverse, then puts in Neutral (allegedly) and starts up again. But the car goes forward into a crowd of...

  8. Not Happy - I've hurt my car.

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    :rant: So annoyed with myself - reversed into a post this afternoon and made a hole in the back bumper. I've got a £400 compulsory excess on my insurance so I'm not sure what to do about it; don't imagine it can be repaired? Anyone know the cost of a rear bumper?
  9. Cat trying to hurt my Alfa :(

    General Alfa Discussion
    I like cats, but a local kitten is starting to get on my nerves :rant: It keeps jumping onto my bonnet, leaving micro marring (polishable)...but having to do this everyday is starting to wear! Are ultrasonic deterrents the best way to ward them away from my bella? (Humane of course!)
