  1. General Alfa Discussion
    Gives a good picture of the new boss of FCA https://www.cnbc.com/2019/11/04/fiat-chryslers-merger-with-peugeots-psa-group-brings-ceo-used-to-taking-risks.html
  2. Tuning & Upgrades
    I was messing about with a spare Subaru engine and found something interesting, though not terribly useful to me (I don't have the expertise and really want to stick to a Busso anyway). Below shows a picture of a Subaru 3.0 H6 24v engine. So what. But look closely at what's attached to the...
  3. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, I am compiling a second video about the GT and wondered if anyone has any interesting facts, or useful technical hacks about the car they might like to contribute? As an example, I was planning to mention the window mechanism reset - winding it fully down and holding the button down for...
  4. General Alfa Discussion
    Interesting article - plus some early design proposals - and, if you read the comments below, there’s info about the compatibility between the 164, Croma, Thema and Saab 9000. https://driventowrite.com/2017/10/26/1987-alfa-romeo-164-profile-history/
  5. Alfa Giulietta
    So for some reason I didn't notice it when test driving the car, but did when I got more familiar. I had the surefire symtoms of clunking when putting load / releasing load on the engine. Wanting to start with the simplest and cheapest, most likely culprit I aimed to replace the rear gearbox...
  6. Alfa Giulietta
    Lots of mods, anybody on here used to own this...
  7. Alfa Giulietta
    Long story short: Stop/Start Event took out my Giulietta completely. On the way to work I had an interesting Stop/Start event. Like many, it seemed to work only sporadically, which I'd assumed down to an ageing battery (unknown age, but good brand; Bosch with stop/start logo). Today, on a...
  8. The Classic Alfa Romeos
    I'm not sure it really suits the car but hey, I'm no interior designer..... https://www.carandclassic.co.uk/car/C963619
  9. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Just looking on ebay at 159's and I found this. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Alfa-Romeo-159-Sportwagon-Black-Lusso-1-9-JTDM-Leggy-and-Hateful/292495760127?hash=item441a1b1aff:g:KkgAAOSwBPFaq7lh Anyone here? I doubt it somewow...
  10. The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Well the tyres look like they are from the 90's if it's as original as they say this could be a peach of a buy for someone, shame there are no photos of the engine bay...
  11. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    (Sorted) Interesting suspension failure Driving my GT 3.2 to my local garage this afternoon, just to book an MOT test, I became aware of a strange rubbing sound coming from the rear of the car and shortly after, a smell of hot rubber. I stopped and had a good look around each wheel but could...
  12. Alfa 164 & 166
    This is an interesting car which was for sale a few weeks ago. It disappeared from Autotrader so just assumed it was sold. Originally, the asking price was nearer £3,000 and it's gradually been chiselled down. Wonder why it's reappeared from the same dealer. I wonder if it's a Malaysian import...
  13. Alfa Giulia
    After almost 4000km am starting to get a few little glitches as you would expect. These however seem to be all electronic, not mechanical as is usual in my experience. Wondering if anyone else getting same, and whether the service pack updates will fix. Have read up on the update contents and...
  14. Alfa Giulia
    I was just looking at the overall sales figures for March, and although I presume Giulia deliveries are now in full swing, Alfa only sold 100 extra cars compared with 2016! 1239 units total compared with 1139 in 2016. I realise that some people were holding back for a 17 Registration, but...
  15. Alfa Giulia
    High praise for the interior at last. And sound amplification ? Does Giulia have that ? Have put this here as its of interest to Giulia owners/potential owners. New Alfa Romeo Stelvio 2017 review - is Alfa's new SUV as good as we hoped? | Evo

    I'll forgive them for getting the name wrong; it's not a bad review when it gets going :)
  18. Alfa Giulietta
    Was messing with my 'new to me' 33k 1.4TB and looked at TripA stats.. Over 11500 ish miles Avg MPG was a low 31.5 but incredibly average speed was 7 mph!!
  19. The Classic Alfa Romeos

  20. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
