  1. pre-2018 Quadrifoglio Service Included

    Alfa Giulia
    Spoken to several QF owners who have free servicing on their cars. Newer cars get that as standard, but I'm puzzled how cars from H1 2017 got free servicing as well? Has anyone here? ...especially when the cost of servicing is more than double what was quoted when I bought the car. Thanks!
  2. Oil service on 2.0 JTDM - what should be included?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Looking to get an oil service done on a 2.0 JTDM Brera - 71,500 miles. Will be booked in at an independent Alfa specialist. What should be included apart from the obvious oil change and filter...?
  3. Recurring DPF Fault related to EGR? Pic and video included

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Have a recurring DPF fault on my 2.4 159. Had a forced regen done, done about 100 miles since and again it's gone into limp mode. On my code reader (budget eBay one) the P2002 code is present (DPF) but also wasn't sure about the EGR% at idle and when the revs are increased. Video here...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello Alfa friends, So here i am again with another problem. This one is really frightening. Above the link with the audio file. At around 10 seconds you can hear the sound at it's best. It sounds a bit like metallic rattling / rrrwhh. Like a valve is opening and then...
  5. Is brake warning light included in ignition startup light sequence?

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi all just changed front breaks as break warning light kept flashing but ended up pads were fine but had a severed O/S pad sensor cable and missing plastic connection point (which i guess was flapping and making a connection somewhere triggering the warning light)... I changed the pads to...
  6. Paintwork bubbling on rear bumper? Photos Included

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi all, Gave my Alfa Brera a good wash at the weekend and noticed some paintwork "bubbling" on the rear bumper - anyone else come across this?

  8. Alfa Dealer 'Bodge' Fix - Dash Rattle (Photos included)

    Alfa Giulietta
    A little background for those who aren't aware. I've had an annoying rattle coming from the top of my dashboard, and I assumed it was coming from the top vent/speaker surround, as when you pushed down on this surround the rattle stopped. So, last month my car went into the local dealership to...
  9. Can you diagnose my GT front suspension creak? Video included!

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi there, Front RHS suspension has started creaking when making slow left hand turns. Only does it after the car's warmed up. Maybe it does it at higher speed but I can't hear it. I'm guessing a worn upper wishbone bush? The LHS was replaced recently so I guess the other one is probably on its...
  10. Strange noises video included ..Oscar worthy perfomance

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi all On Tuesday this week my Phase 2 GTV started making two odd sounds....all in one day. First one is a high pitch whine from the engine, it seems to do it more on the move. Sometimes at idle as this video shows, any ideas? YouTube Other noise is a major clunk coming from the drivers...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT

  14. My 147 JTD Upgrades (Pictures included)

    Motoring Images
    Hi guys, Haven't been on these forums in a long time, but thought it was time to show you what I've been up to with my 147. I'm currently on my 2nd Alfa (both were 147s). I've been slowly upgrading the car, but hopefully in a classy way (as if it came out of the showroom that way). So far I've...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Guys, This is related to another thread (Selespeed hesitation and dead) but thought I'd ask if anyone can diagnose selespeed issues based on code details - prize for simple do this, change this, replace this or ignore this succinct guidance. P1747 Failed Component Code: Switch Lever 2 Fault...
  16. Alfa 156 2.0 Ti Rough Idle - Please Diagnose - Video Included!

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hey guys, My beloved 2006 156 Ti (2L JTS Engine) seems to have developed a rough idle, when both hot an cold. It seems to be a metallicy noise alongside the usual light and buttery notes that the engine should produce. I'm taking a wild guess at this being the alternator bearings failing. It...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    My Alfa Romeo 147 making weird noise? - YouTube Hi, I have a 147 2.0 ts I just purchased. The car is making weird noise and this worries me. It most likely sounds like it's coming from the rear wheel and does not do this when stationary. Only does when it moves and I was driving about...

    Poll Room
    Am sure this has been asked before & yes I did search, but we know how good that is these days... Anyhoo, should 'other' always be an option in polls? :D
  19. 1.9 JTD GT Issues, latest won't kick over (pic included of replaced part)

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Long story short Have had the GT for half a year now, was having problems with no power sometimes, temp fix was the Alfa mechanics put a "plate" to block something so other valves or something wouldn't get stuck closed??? Not entirely sure but what ever they did worked for the last 4000km until...
