  2. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Well, after over 4 years with the159 I found a b&m feature I never knew I had!! Changing between media stick, cd and radio always was a bit hit and miss, often having to resort to the steering wheel controls to get to the media menu and choose random or try to get the middle of the right...
  3. Alfa 147, 156 & GT

  5. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Just bought a 156 handbook that covers the Selespeed, and it says in the Selespeed section that the car should not be left in neutral when parked.......

  7. Alfa Giulietta
    I locked my keys in the boot. And wouldve guessed the windows are sledge hammer proof! Brilliant. So the RAC arrive, 'sorry pal, cant help you the cars deadlocked cant open the door even if we broke the window' Not really knowing enough i accepted that and he drove off (laughing probably), i...

  9. Alfa GTA
    Well, I've had the catless manifolds on the GTA for a while now and one thing I hadn't counted on was how much of an affect on fuel consumption all those lovely extra torques has. Ever since I've owned the car I've barely been able to average more than 16mpg, a lot of this is down to living in...

  12. Alfa 164 & 166
    Bit bored today so thought i would try the fabled ECU reset. Net result is a ICS that wont switch on and a gearbox that beeps to tell me I am in reverse when infact I am in drive! It was all fine before!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Im guessing I should do the ECU reset again to try and stop the...
  13. Alfa GTA
    Well it was going to happen wasn't it, after over a month of happy alfa owning my first major job is at hand. The oil leak I have found the cause - one of the camshaft oil seals behind the cambelt pulleys is leaking, we found this after taking the cambelt covers off in search of the leak. The...

  16. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    She was running beaute this morning. Parked up. Did a few bits and pieces, decided to nip to town, nothing. She was turning over but not firing. I had to admit defeat and call the RAC. After 10 minutes of doing stuff the guy said it was definately fuel related and asked if I'd done anything. Not...
  17. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Dear Lord, you may have heard me use your name in vain and utter profanities by the bucketload. Please forgive me as I was trying to do something that should have been the most simple of tasks but I've ended up spending the last 4 hours grazing my knucles, burning my hands and stabbing my...

  19. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Ive just been looking at Alfa GT's on autotrader and saw a nice V6. Never having been sure of the VED rating of a V6, I looked it up on Parkers. And it seems that any cars up to mid 2006 are only Band F, so only have to pay £205 road tax. After this they are Band G/£300. So what changed???
  20. General Alfa Discussion
    LOL ;) I've been "promoted" so to speak, so i'm treating myself and my lovely alfa to a little modding. As some of you are aware, i've replaced my alfa wheels with 18" ones, which I am extremely happy with, and am now looking to make everything "sit" a lot nicer on them. I want the shocks...
