  1. Alfa Giulietta
    Hi Gents, Now its finally winter in my part of the world, well winter and winter..its freezing a couple of degrees :-) Then its nice to have heated seats, there is just that little issue that my legs are roasted after 3-4 min, and there is no heat in the backrest.. That's for the drivers seat...
  2. Alfa 145 & 146
    Has anyone replaced their chassis legs? I'm trying to work out if they are just bolt on or if welding is required.
  3. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi people Does anyone out there know IF there is now a kit to uprate OR get rid of the dreaded duel mass clutch fitted to the 159? I have a 159 jtd TI, & I think its about to go as the clutch pedal has about 2" of movement on engagement & release! I had the engine chipped about 3 years ago &...

    are the bolts holding the alloy bits to the shocks always so tight or do they just corrode into the alloy thus fail to move
  6. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Like the heading says I suspect my DMF is on the way out. The car has a slight but noticeable drivetrain rattle. It goes away when I let it freewheel in neutral and its engine speed related. When it's cold it's normally quiet but within a few km's it normally starts to make the rattle. I can...
  7. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    A couple of questions that you gurus may know the answer to: I need new rear springs (rear wheel camber) as well as new front shocks on my 99 V6. I am wondering to go down the route of eibachs with Koni STRs? Having previously owned a 2 litre I would say the V6 sits lower than the twinny - is...
  8. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Latest lesson learned. Although the legs that support the Bumper/Wing and Undertray on the 156 look identical to the 147 - they are not! I sourced some reasonably clean 147 legs from a breaker's yard. I compared them - looked the same (I didn't measure them!). Spend a couple of hours cleaning...
  9. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi all. I was just wondering if anyone else has the same thing with me. When i drive hot air blows in the area where i have my legs underneath the dashboard and the passengers side too. You can feel that a lot in the summer. I was thinking that maybe the engine hotness is coming in instead of...

  13. Alfa 145 & 146
    Hi to all 145 owners, my mate who I look after his car has now changed to a 156 because the 145 is very poorly and after no heater in the winter and someone hitting him on o/s/f. We are breaking it it for spares due to front of vehicle as some point having a front end collision ? Vehicle...

  15. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    To fit into a drivers seat of a GT? Anybody else have a problem with legroom in a GT for the driver. I searched it on here but can only find threads for back seat passengers, who, quite frankly i couldnt give a toss if they have no room to have legs.

    I noticed a long time ago somebody listed the symptoms of the water pump being on its last legs? Any ideas what those are?
  19. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    partly in line with the other thread, "what do you like/dislike about your gtv/spider", i see that no-one has mentioned the following..... ....if I drive my 97 spider, with cloth seats, for more than a couple of days at a time, my right leg feels as if its dead! at the thigh, more specifically...
