    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I've seen so many threats about the right battery for a 159 I thought I'd add my 2 penneth. Sorry I ordered an Exide EA900 Premium 115 TE battery from Tayna on Monday at a delivered cost of £71.29 all in. Impressively it turned up on Wednesday morning, perfectly packaged, complete with clear...

  3. So what colour would your ideal racing Step Front be?

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    This is partly a game, and partly not. (There's a slim chance I might have a step front sprint gt race car coming my way this winter. It's a bit shabby looking, but in good mechanical condition. And one thing I'm toying with is a new paint job. I'm just a bit stuck for ideas though.) If you...
  4. Searching for the ideal exhaust set up advice please

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi everyone Looking for some opinions/advice please. I have the CF2 manifold with EQ down pipes and standard back box. I did have a wizard but I found it too boomy at high revs and motor way driving and drowned the engine noise out completely . So I sold it and got a standard box back fitted...
  5. Ideal battery voltage

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    What would the ideal voltage be for a car at rest. I recently charged it up over a couple of days and used it for a short run. The next morning the voltage showed as 12.3V. This seemed a bit low. I am thinking that a new battery might be due as this one ( a Yuasa) has a few years on it. Doug

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Alasd it is time to part - I have a R reg alfa gtv twin spark. Locals didnt think I should have a nice car and keyed the panels and pinched badges. However if you are good with a bit of wet n dry can be restored to former glory. This car is very reliable - had her 4 years and never let me...
  11. Weak battery- ideal replacement?

    Alfa GTA
    Hi - quite often get all sorts of warnings when first turning car on... immediately disappear, but think the battery is pretty knackered. It said low battery warning this morning for the first time.. normally just all the sidelights and parking lights etc 'fail' briefly and then it's ok. So, a...
  12. CF3 323.10 Piston Required (scrap ideal)

    Engines (TS, JTS, JTD & V6)
    I am looking into machining some CF2 323.01 pistons from a 2.0ts that I have to the same compression height as the CF3 323.10 pistons. I basically need to lower the cr and 323.10 pistons with the older thick cylinder head gasket does this. I only need the piston to confirm some measurements...
  13. Ideal engine temperature

    Engines (TS, JTS, JTD & V6)
    Just had a new engine fitted in my GT after a bottom end failure (overheated crankshaft, bearing shelves melted). It's a 2.0JTS. Old engine had only done 51k miles. I've noticed that the new engine doesn't seem to get as hot as the old one. Whereas the old one was almost always reading 90 on the...

  16. 17 inch multispokes, ideal spare/replace damaged alloy

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi, hope it's ok to draw attention to the wheels that I'm selling on ebay here? They're the standard 17" multispokes from a 159, and I've advertised them as four separate listings because as the tyres are quite...
  17. Ideal alloys for a Mito?

    Alfa MiTo
    Following on from another thread. I absolutely love my Mito Cloverleaf, but I am still undecided about the dark alloys. It's just that against the Tornado blue, they look dirty and the contrast is never enough for the car to look clean. I think that a brighter silver would be one hell of a lot...
