One is regular post at €85 which they refuse to use due to the loss of items. Another is DHL at €500. Does anyone have another option that they’ve maybe used...

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi, This is my first time posting so sorry if I make some errors! I have a Giulietta Cloverleaf (2012), which I bought in December, had just been MOT'd and serviced. Recently, the engine oil change warning light came on. I phoned the garage, as I suspect it hadn't been reset when oil was changed...

    I've just read a poorly written article on about the R7.5bn los the economy has suffered as a result of a human error while erecting scaffolding. Again, my intention is to gather personal views on the effects of loadsheding of your life, as well as get a wholistic view for South...
  7. Help needed. Large puddle = long walk home

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Coming home in the rain last night in the 'wagon (1.9 jtd 16V) I hit a large bit of standing water and the engine cut out. Pretty soaked by the time we walked home. My OBD2 reader does not seem to want to connect to anything - so I suspect that the ecu has got soaked. Any other obvious things...
  8. Large screen Double DIN ICE in Spider

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I debated whether this was more suited to the ICE part of the forum, but figured that it was more directly related to the Spider, so here goes... I've just recently upgraded from a 147 to a 07 Spider. I'm loving it so far, and everything works flawlessly (yeah, that's not going to last!)...
  9. Large area of lacquer just came off my 06 GT

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Giving my GT some beauty treatment this morning and after washing & drying I applied Meguiars on off polish , to my amazement the lacquer on the rear wing suddenly crinkled up and I now have around 12"x 8" area with no lacquer ....hard to see it in the sun but a dread when the sun goes down...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    A few days ago I bought this 156 totally aware of the exhaust leak... Upon inspection today it turned out a wee bit worse than expected :) Can a leak like this trigger the engine warning light and cause a misfire?
  12. Upgrade from "small" to "large" navi on 159

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I have just bought a 159TI 2009. It has the small navigation unit without bigscreen + blue/me. I want to upgrade it to the original bigscreen navigation. I have read that the bigscreen navigation is sligthly larger than the one I have. Is this right? Are there other issues related to this or is...
  13. Selespeed definitely losing large amounts of fluid via breather on cap

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    My 147 Selespeed is dropping loads of fluid through the breather on the reservoir cap. I have only just been able to confirm this as I was not sure where the leak was coming from. The reason I'm sure that it is from the breather is by adding a catch can beneath the breather tube...
  14. Button on red large key fob

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Reading the thread on the Meta alarms got me thinking about this again. The large red key I have has a black button which causes a little ligh on the key to shine but does nothing to the door locks. Has anyone got this working? I wonder if it was diabled when the Meta alarm was used. Be nice...

  16. Too large a Pedal ?

    Alfa Giulietta
    For some reason ( to appeal to Boy-Racers graduating from Turbo Unos etc ? ) the go-pedal in my Diesel 170 Veloce is as large as the Brake & Clutch pedals. Not only is there no point in this - but it does actually get in the way of when I want to use the brake . The size of my shoes are...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I have after market alfa wheels that have a single large central alloy wheel nut and cap. My garage following a "routine" oil change took it upon themselves to check the wheels for tightness. They subsequently over torqued them! Got a puncture today and tried to take the wheel off only to shear...

  19. Is that an X-Type Jag looming large in your mirror?

    General Motoring Discussion
    Jaguar Recalls Almost 18,000 Cars In The UK - Yahoo! Really comforting that - especially the bit about "turning the ignition off will cancel the cruise control function". :eek: Hope I'm nowhere near when someone tries out that solution at 70+ on a motorway.
