  1. Introduce Yourself
    I am a user of Alfa Romeo 147. Want to be my own mechanic for minor things.
  2. Alfa Giulietta
    I've been thinking about this. The Dodge Dart (.org) forums are very active, and the community has tons of mods (CDV delete, lightweight flywheel, 4C/1750 coils and so on). The Dart itself is based on a modified G platform, and many have the 1.4 MultiAir in combination with the C635 gearbox in...
  3. General Alfa Discussion
    I do most of my own mechanical repairs but have always admired people who could weld. People who could weld always seemed to me to be in an unattainable class of their own and I never even considered the idea. A couple of years ago my wife bought me a small non-gas mig welder for Christmas. It...
  4. Alfa Giulia
    In some cases little things please little minds. The other day I managed set and store the 6 DAB Radio Favourites, work out how to get voice instructions on the navigation, set the speed activated Auto Door Locking, establish what Software Versions the car had, all without referring to the...

    Hi all, Does somebody know the definitive list of parameters that are self learning? I.e what actually gets reset following an ECU reset? Thanks.
  7. General Alfa Discussion
    So, cleaned and took a clay bar to the Giulietta today, making use of a rare sunny day. Decided to touch up the few stone chips on the nose with the previously purchased 298/A paint touch up pen. Started to vigorously shake the pen (as instructed on the pack), not realising that the two halves...

  10. Alfa GTA
    I am a real geek when it comes to polishing my car but I would really like to know how the professionals do it. I have found a company while browsing the internet on my lunch hour that could accomodate a group . This will last most of the day and you will be abale to learn, practice and ask...

    Hello, I'm a 26 year old 'mature' 3rd year student of Philosophy and International Relations born and bred in the shire, in north-west England. My heart has always ruled my head so when I decided to start shopping for my first car I immediately searched Autotrader and Pistonheads for the...
  12. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    My other half was driving the GTV home in Bournemouth tonight and came across another one going round a roundabout towards Westbourne. From what she said it was a big guy tatooed up who made special effort to wave and say hello to which my gf just smiled and waved. He then followed for a bit...

  15. Alfa 145 & 146
    I am down to only a master key on one of my cars. I bought a normal key today & had it cut but now I need to get the system to learn it. The manual has a procedure for this as follows. Insert master key Turn to MARCIA Move back to stop as soon as the CODE light goes out. Remove it within 10...
  16. Introduce Yourself
    Hi All I have no knowledge of Alfas but having rented a 156 i discovered the best car I've driven (so far ) so I'm here to research my next car :)
  17. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Does anyone know exactly what "learning" is possible for the ECU's used in the 147 etc Example if you are running on 95 RON (Recommended minimum) and put in a load of 100 RON then in an emergency put in 91 RON (Not recommended I realise) , how quickley does the ECU adjust to these situations...
  18. Alfa 155
    Had a cat back powerflow fitted to my 2.0 16v last weekend, have done approx 250 miles since then but it's not performaing as i expect it to. 2 of the 3 silencers have been removed so there's just the rear box, i thought this would have reduced back pressure but the car seems to act like back...
