  1. Late model 159 subframes

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I guess you should never start with an apology, but sorry for yet another subframe question. I've had the subframe treated with Waxoyl in situ every 2-3 years at the local garage since we bought my wife's 2011 159 5 years ago and am really pleased to say that having taken advantage of the...

  4. The old question, late 166 or a 159?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Ive found a really nice 3.0 166 in metallic gray, FSH, cambelt done a few months ago and 68K miles. I havent had a chance to inspect yet, however I hope to this week.

A few days after ordering I was notified that it had arrived in the UK and on December 11 had reached status 45 which meant it was expected...
  9. Is a late model 33 a crazy idea for a 2nd car?

    Alfa 33, Sud & Sprint
    Is a late model Alfa 33 1.7 Q4 a crazy idea for a second car at this point ? I have read that the late 33 cars are better with rust than the 80's ones or any Alfa 75. But how reliable are they in general and specially the boxer engine? Are they high maintenance and expensive to maintain and...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi I am looking for some info on the late model 156s. The 2007 ones. Some of the rumour is, that these were the ones destined for Asia but were re-routed back to the UK. Was this true, and are there any things to worry about, if so ? Did they stand in a wet field for months on end waiting for...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
