  3. are you all mad?

    Alfa 164 & 166
    Well, I must be. I have owned my FL 166 for 6 months, and 2 of those have been watching it sitting in my garage. So, I am going to get this sucker to work. A towbar to lug along the camper, and the roof racks for the top box. Yes, yes, I know: Alfas are meant to be driven, but I need to get my...

    Lo all , Ive been lurking around for a while and decided months ago that i wanted to try a GTV. I like to try different modern classics and recently gave up 944's just through having had enough of them really. The GTV seemed an obvious choice as i need two little back seats for my enthusiastic...
  6. New ARB at 168,000miles - Am I mad?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    The ARB has been clonking for over 20k miles now and I've put off getting a new one in case something else major on the car died. But it hasn't - the car keeps going. I also need a new flexi for the exhaust so I don't expect much change from £350 for the two items :cry:. I had the last ARB...
  7. I may be slightly mad....

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    But look what I just bought..... As someone that has zero mechanical or welding skills, it's a bit of a big job. Fortunately the work is in the hands of an excellent professional, so she should be returned to better than her former glory. Guess I'll have to change my forum name!

    Well, maybe not mad, but every squirt triggers the whole intensive wash thing. I must have used a lot of screen wash today :( Any ideas?
  13. Am I mad to consider this?

    General Alfa Discussion
    Alfa Romeo GT 3.2 V6 24V 2dr 1 OWNER, FULL DEALER HISTORY On face value, it looks okay (apart from the astronomical mileage) and of course I would have to give it a good check over before I did anything but opinions on this are much appreciated! :thumbs:
  14. GT 3.2 daily driver. Mad or Magic.

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Well here goes... the last daily driver, fiat stilo jtd, has died! I now use the GT everyday instead of once or twice a week. Whilst the mileage will go up I brought the car to enjoy it so I'm going to make the most of it :) The fuel is an obvious concern, but not taxing, insuring and running...

    South Africa
    So I was at Chatz this afternoon with my girlfriend who's just bought a demo Fiat 500 1.2 Pop. While we were waiting for all the paperwork I noticed that they had a black 916 Spider V6 that had just been traded in on the back lot. From 10 paces the bodywork looked neat. As some of you know I'm...

  18. Twinspark manifold modding gone mad

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Well I had inspiration looking at a v6 engine bay a while ago and the thing that stood out was those chrome inlet tubes so having a spare inlet plenum and manifold it got the artistic side of me thinking. So I have started to trim out the webbing in the castings and go for a sweeping pipe look...

  20. Maltese are mad for Alfas....

    Motoring Images
    Had the pleasure of last week (Mon-Fri) in Malta on work duties.....tough life I know. Stayed in a place called Sliema, nice place, loads of decent weather etc. But I was shocked at how many Alfas there are out there! Literally every street had at least two parked up. Many older models...
