  1. The Classic Alfa Romeos
    No real purpose to this thread, except to promote general nerdy discussion and sharing experience on handling/performance characteristics of the 105 series, and generally enjoying older cars. I am on my second S2 Spider. The first was an American import, which had 185/70R14 tyres and much...
  2. Alfa Giulia
    Not my lucky day, after a **** poor round of golf and when driving home the car decides to present me with the Check Engine Light. Will call Alfa Top Care tomorrow to see what they advise - hopefully this is nothing serious... For anyone owning a QV here's what's included in Alfa Top Care:-...
  3. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Having sold the 156 to taffMGF I've had to revert to using the GT as an every day car. Bear in mind that I work from home so the EDC is mainly used for by my wife for trips to the local supermarket and M&S. Up till now the GT has mainly been used as a motorway car, M50, M5, M6, M74 and M8 to...
  4. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    So I dropped on a fairly decent 159 2.0 JTDM ti a couple of months back and having owned a few diesel Alfa's in the past expected I'd have to give her the once over before remap. Having run her for a month I could tell something wasn't right with the power delivery so cleaned out the egr/map...
  5. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    HI, Today my beloved 3.2 GT passed it's second MOT since I bought it, with no advisories. The mechanic who took it for the test said to give him first refusal if I ever want to sell - a good sign. I've also found a local car restoration business who will fully waxoyl the car for £200. Result!

  6. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    This new year four bulbs have gone in my house and today a dipped headlight bulb, so I went to Halfords and found one, £12, then I remembered Euro Car Parts, £1.70, yes really. Twenty minutes and a gashed hand I was feeling slightly less smug, is a piece of bent wire in a difficult to manipulate...
  7. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I have just had a full suspension overhaul changing everything (!) at Autolusso (thanks to Ned and Jay :thumbs:) and finally some 9 months after purchasing the car (also having had all belts done), I can truly enjoy the car on the road. It is just glorious :cool: The roads around here in...

  9. Introduce Yourself
    I have always been intrigued and fascinated by Alfa Romeos. The concept of putting pen to paper in a dark room filled with Pavarotti on full blast somehow appeals to me. "Beautiful a lines, weela make it work later..." What a company, what a heritage, what a way to see places while waiting...
  10. Alfa GTA
    When I bought the car the top two lines didn't work. Then about a year ago it go damaged somehow and three lines below on the passenger side stopped working. Now the top 5 lines aren't working on both sides and the radio is aweful when it's swtiched on. I tried some element repair paint but its...
  11. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Had a 159 about a month or so, wonderful car, love it to bits, which is good, because in the last few days: The drivers window regulator has failed (in this heat!!), window was stuck at the bottom too, so had to strip the door card to gaffa tape the window closed while I wait for the part 1...
  12. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi all, Recently posted in the newbie section saying that I've been on the hunt for a Brera... well today that search came to an end. I'm 22 so this is my first Brera but I fell in love with them when I first saw one and for the last 6 months or so I have been searching for the right one in my...
  13. General Alfa Discussion
    Guys, After a lot of deliberation I have decided that in the interests of common sense i'm going to have to find a new home for my 2001 156 1.6 Veloce Sportwagon rather than leave it parked up since the arrival of my new Giulietta. It has given me 12 years and 275,000 miles of absolute pleasure...
  14. General Alfa Discussion
    Guys, Next week i'm picking up my new Alfa but the question is: 'What do I do with my current 156 Veloce SW"? I have owned it from new, done every one of those 275,000 miles, cherished it, loved it, cared for it and had it serviced it meticulously. It has 25 Alfa Main Dealer Service Stamps...
  15. Alfa GTA
    Hi guys thought i would post a few pics of the car as i haven't done for a long time. I've owned the car for just over two years now and it is by far the best car i have ever had and im going to keep it for as long as possible. So the car has undergone quite a bit of work recently which...
  16. Alfa Giulietta
    Well, haven't been using the G much for the last month.....away in Italy for Xmas and New Year, followed as soon as we got back by a dose of proper flu, then the cr*ppy weather which didn't tempt me to take my pride and joy out as I didn't need to. So all in all my poor GQV has been feeling...

  17. South Africa
    So I've been without my 166 for 3 weeks now. Hit a baboon on the N4 near Malelane, knocked loose a water pipe so she was taken to a panel beater on a flatbed. Anyhow, nothing seriously wrong (only window washer pipe broken and some cosmetic damage to the bumper), but I've not seen her for weeks...

  20. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi fellas, have had 15 days of joy from my 59 2.0 JTDm 159, started her up this evening and it looks like my power steering pump has failed. Started her up this evening to a whining noise and power steering fluid bubbling from the release nipple in the cap. Turned her off and had the AA out...
