Have Alfa lost their mind regards options and pack combinations or is the configurator just a pile of doo doo? I'm trying to spec a petrol Giulia super as follows:
Electric folding door mirrors
Front park sensors
Coloured brake callipers
I was able to...
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...
Veloce booked in to dealer tomorrow but as anybody had similar problem?
Start & Stop unavailable
Graphic showing all 4 x doors
Check left hand side turn light
Check parking lights
Horn sounding every 30 seconds even though horn doesn't sound when pressed
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...
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.
Does anyone out there know where i can get Lexus style (or similar) rear light clusters for 147 08 ( facelift) i can only seem to find pre-facelift ones any help would be gratefully received, also on a completely different tack im close to ordering a front mounted intercooler...
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...
The above title is what I could do with being answered?
Due to a change in circumstances the Mazda 6 Diesel that I bought 10 months ago is now not really required. I've gone from 20k miles a + business down to 6.5k due to a work change. Most if it B roads so no...
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...
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
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...
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...
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...
Bought 170 veloce in August ex fleet. All has been fine except for a few warnings flashing up then going.
Today all went toots up. Start /stop warning on, switches on and off according to display, but does not operate. DNA not switching , LED above start/stop switch is permanently on and EOBD...
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):
Bought 51 plate 147 TS about 4 months ago but never have Windows going down.
alfaOBD cannot connect to drivers door
CAN Status does not detect door unit
puddle light not working
Lit up but does not function
Looking at the drivers switch it...
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...
