    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, Well here we go again... After 2 1/2 years away from Alfa Ownership I have finally returned to the marque. (There was a brief dabble with a T/S GTV; but that doesn't count for me!). Today I have secured a deal on a '05 GT 3.2. Should be delivered tomorrow and will have pride of...

  4. mad idea #237

    Tuning & Upgrades
    Beer broadens the mind, doesn't it? :) Ok, say, for example I had a twin spark 16v intake manifold (not the plastic bit, the metal bit) and onto this, fitted 4 individual throttle bodies from a 1.6. An amplifier installed to deal with driving the other three (or all four) and voila, itb Alfa...

  6. Am I mad

    Introduce Yourself
    Just bought a 2006 159 JTD. It's my sixth Alfa. After No. 5 i said never again, but I have an addiction. Tried a BMW and was smitten but was drawn back when I saw my new beauty. Great on the test drive but problems rearing their head after three days. I should have known.

  8. Going from 159 to 166 FL - am I mad?

    Alfa 164 & 166
    Hi all, As the title suggests, I'm tempted to go back to a 166 from my 159 JTDM. I used to have a mint 166 Super with Zender body kit but it was just getting too expensive to run with the fuel costs etc. I'm tempted to go back to a 166 facelift Twin Spark now that fuel prices are a bit more...

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    New addition to the fleet arrived yesterday evening Used 1999 Alfa Romeo Spider TS LUSSO 16V for sale in Cleveland | Pistonheads I negotiated the price a little as there is no evidence of a recent cambelt and I was very circumspect about the drive from her old home in Teeside yesterday evening...
  12. Driven mad - Knocking after replacing entire suspension assembly

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    So I've had the odd knocking noise which has been cured by new parts, and for two blissful weeks there's been no knocking... However a knocking/clicking noise has started when: - Going over bumps - Accelerating and then braking in quick succession - Going around corners that aren't flat It's...

  14. Back in an Alfa again (am I mad?)

    Introduce Yourself
    First car I ever owned was a 1.3 Alfasud back in 1987, great fun but I moved to Ireland and it didn't like the roads or garages over there very much so it was given away when I got a company car. 16 years later, back in the UK again, I bought a 2.0 GTV, loved it for 18 months until the cambelt...
  15. 147 knocking / rattle - Driving me mad

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Rattle knocking from the car, thought it may be suspension but can't see or feel any issues. Sounds like front drop link issues, but when they have gone in the past I could see where they had failed when investigating. I've been under the car and everything is tight as.... No lateral movement...
  16. Am I going mad??

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Not sure if I'm going mad or not but I'm sure that when I used to have the climate control set to Auto the air recirculating light would leave the little "A" lit up on it or have I imagined that as it has stopped doing that? As soon as I press the air circulation button it switches off the auto...

    Introduce Yourself
    Newbie here from South Devon. Picked up my 159 2.4 JTD yesterday and had a smile on my face on the way home... Diesel noise takes some getting used to on start up, but driving along the A303 was more than enjoyable. First things to note (had a couple of 156's which I loved): Interior (lusso)...

  20. A Merc W123 survives life in the world of Mad Max 4

    General Motoring Discussion
    As if anymore proof of the W123's rugged longevity was required, it exists fictionally in Mad Max 4. No idea what role it plays, but that it still survives in such a dark, dystopian world, is oddly reassuring, should we ever get into such a mess that results in the world Mad Max lives in. :lol...
