  1. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Calling all people with those wonderful restoration wizardry skills... I've bought a pair of used GTA xenon headlight units. One is a bit scabby as you can see in the images but they were cheap and will serve as a good source of spares. The lenses I'm comfortable with as I know they can come off...
  2. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Calling all pre-facelift 156 owners with Xenon lights, are the headlight units specific for LHD and RHD cars? ePer suggests so but I'm curious to know the difference, are the igniters angled differently or something to give the correct beam pattern or is beam pattern etc controlled entirely by...
  3. Alfa Giulia
    Yesterday the car suffered a significant loss of power. Started up cold and immediately when pulling away it just wouldn't pull. Not like limp mode but there was a definite loss of power. It initially sounded like it had dropped a cylinder, quite a gruff noise but that cleared. Anyway this...

    Hello, As the title says - the front dome lights don't turn on when the car is unlocked, and don't turn on when the doors are opened. The ones in the back DO turn on however. The dome lights themselves can be switched on using the switch, but other than that they don't do it automatically. I'm...

    Hello everybody. My 2.2 JTS 159 has developed a problem, where most of the time all lights flicker rhythmically irrespective of the load on the system - faster at low RPM and slower at higher RPM. When there is a load on the electrical system at idle like the radiator fan turning on, the...

    Can someone 1.6 jtdm giulietta is displaying Check engine and VDC lights on at the same time with message: check engine + start stop unavailble. It started last week, run to the local mechanic that did a diagnostic and concluded the car needed a regen. Left the car with the mechanic...
  13. The Classic Alfa Romeos
    These are not working on mine. With the ignition on and the car in reverse there is either no lights or a faint flicker of both lights. Given that there is a flicker I am guessing that it is not the switch. Any thoughts on what to do next.
  14. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I've read the puddle and under dash lights are the same for the PH1, and that some Maserati lights are identical to the ones in the GTV. Did any other cars use these, I'm missing a whole unit for the passenger side under dash? I'm having trouble sourcing any, so I was wondering if maybe Fiat...
  15. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, just got my new 147 (new to me of course). Front fog light chrome rings are corroded beyond repair. Second hand seem sparse and expensive, any one got any recommendations as to aftermarket kits? Thanks.
  16. Alfa Giulietta
    Hello, I’ve just bought giulietta qv and I’ve noticed error that keeps coming up every time I’ve start engine. It says adaptive lights failure check handbook. My only guess is that beams are not following the steering wheel. But when I start engine I see that beams are going up and down before...

    Hi I have changed all the bulbs inc number plate to LED and it looks good. I have a quick question do the puddle lights stay on or only operate when the door is opened? It may seem a daft question sorry!!
