  1. General Alfa Discussion
    Rather ambitiously, my wife and I decided to drive from Bristol to Sicily last month in her newly acquired 2008 red 2.2 LE Spider. All was well until we approached the Simplon Pass and the dreaded yellow light of doom appeared on the dashboard, accompanied by an intermittent loss of power. We...

  3. General Alfa Discussion
    Hi All, I can't seem to find any recent posts about this. Does anyone know of any independent Alfa Romeo garages in the Ayrshire area? I live and work in the Kilmarnock area. Thanks

  5. Alfa Giulietta
    My G MA 170 is due for MOT and service; 4 years, only 24000 miles. Last year I took it to an Alfa dealer (was under warranty) and wasn't particularly impressed by them - they broke the engine cover, so I had to go back to get that replaced, didn't fix the rear doors/windows letting rain in to...

    Italia independent question? Is there such a thing as a T-Cut you can get for this stupid Matt colour? Love the colour combo but what a pain in the arse the paint is....even to match!
  7. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Throwing this out to gauge interest...... After buying last week a 2.2 Spider Italia independent (one of 7 in the U.K.) it was bought as a knee jerk due to its rarity more than anything else, I’ve come to the conclusion after only 1 week I am not going to get on with it?? Obviously summer days...
  8. Alfa Giulietta
    If you were going to buy a very well maintained Giulietta, low mileage with FSH would it put you off if the service history was all done at an indi garage? My Veloce is coming up to its first service and I'd rather take it to what I'd consider an expert garage like Autolusso instead of a main...
  9. Alfa 145 & 146
    I’ve recently purchased a beautiful 147 2.0 Twin Spark Selespeed. Which drives wonderfully, however, I’m looking to find a good independent specialist in mid Essex. I would like to have her serviced very soon, especially regarding the oil changes. Any recommendations very much appreciated. ...
  10. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    A Prodrive is my 1st choice.......Honestly! But May be persuaded to consider an Italia Independent if pushed :thinking::hehe:

    Lol - Will tomfun see this one????
  12. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi there everyone, I have owned my Brera Italia Independent for 2 and a half years and have loved using it as my weekend car. Now is the time to think of selling it on, as I think I need something for everyday use now. Once I've had a good look round the site, I will make an effort to...
  13. Alfa Giulia
    Evening All, Been reading the forum from a far for quite a while so thank you for your guidance so far! I am from Manchester and have been to my nearest dealers today at Blackburn and the infamous Mangos to try and help my option decisions on a Veloce. 'Mabs', if you read this, thank you. My...
  14. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    As most of you will no doubt be aware, there has been a 1.8 Brera for sale on eBay for some time (possibly as it is recorded as a Cat D)? The seller has had it for sale for some time and I have been in contact with him for some time, his asking price is almost £10k - But what is it worth...
  15. Lincolnshire
    Just had my guilietta in this morning to have the oil change warning reset at my favoured independent garage, anyway it's the first time I've been to him with the Alfa although I've been using him for the past four years for the wife's car and my previous ..... Focus, with no problems...
  16. Alfa Giulietta
    Car needs servicing. Im looking for an alfa independent specialist.. if possible near Peterborough. Any recommendations?
  17. Alfa 164 & 166
    Hi, Had my 166 2.0TS cambelt changed by MotorMech in Birmingham last week. They did the cambelt, water pump (there was slight play in the old one), balance belt, accessory belt and idlers for around £375 inc VAT. Unlike some specialists they didn't try to sell me a variator (they checked & it...
  18. Alfa MiTo
    Hi all, Having moved from a 916 spider to a 1.4 16v Mito, I'm looking for a local Alfa independent for servicing in the GU16 (Camberley) post code. Before people shoot me - the Mito is the wife's daily commuter, something the 916 spider didn't like. Any recommendations for an indi garage...
  19. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    As painful as it was, I just had to sell my Swedish Brera TBI TI, and now need a new car. Obviously a 159 SW TI (TBI, 1,9 or 2,0) is the sensible choice with two dogs and 4 trips to Sweden annually. However, we did manage for years with the Brera, so primarily looking for one of these...
  20. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
