  2. Guilia makes the news!

    General Alfa Discussion
    I've just seen the BBC News Channel's coverage of the US elections from Capitol Hill, where a Democrat party representative was being interviewed. There, in the near background (if that's not an oxymoron!) was a red Guilia!

  4. 2004 156 JTD makes rustling noise when accelerating

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    When I accelerate at anything more than a crawl I get this weird rustling noise from my left front wheel area that is directly related to how fast I am going. I want to call it a "woosh" but it isn't the same as the noise the car made when the intercooler tube was cracked. It doesn't happen when...
  5. DHLA mixture screw makes no difference

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    While messing about with the idle mixture screws to get the HC down I noticed that on one barrel (twin 40's) screwing the idle mixture screw either way makes no difference to the idling, the other three do, the carbs are balanced, the engine runs sweet at all speeds apart from idle which is a...
  6. Practice makes perfect

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Changed my daughters thermostat on her GT when she got it 18 months ago or so. Took me 90 minutes or so. Did the stat on my own GT this morning and managed it in 60 minutes. So much easier if you remove the battery.....why didn't i think of that last time.. 2.0 JTS petrol both of them.
  7. One of two makes me an owner

    General Alfa Discussion
    Hey, Sorry for posting here as my first post, however I want to make an introduction with a picture of my new ride so first I need some opinions. I have had my eye on a 2006 159 2.2 JTS Sportswagon with 266 000km and a 2007 (facelift) 147 2.0 TS with 150 000km. They both have passed their MOT...
  8. Wheelspin makes front end rattle horrible, also requires more throttle to get going?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I've mounted my 17" wheels on and, the wheels seem tucked under the side panel. They weren't like this before. The only thing that has changed is the rear springs were reverted back to stock because they were cut, so now the car is higher in the back and its the same in the front as it always...

  10. Front speakers - and how installation makes a BIG difference!

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    This is a short tale of a front speaker upgrade. I know that dozens of us have done this, and I've certainly done this before... but this time, I think there's an interesting twist :) Previously I've fitted 5x7 replacement speakers (Kicker, which were OK once I replaced the crossovers) and...
  11. What makes a Prodrive lighter?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    What was removed or replaced to get the weight saving? I'm wondering what can be done to a standard car to improve the power/weight.
  12. What makes a 159 a ti?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT

  16. What makes the 156/ GT chassis so good?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Obviously in great condition and working order. There is something magic about these chassis. And i would like to know what it is about the design that makes it so communicative and fun to drive? Is there any personal design traits that differentiate it from other mass market chassis designs of...
  17. This makes me angry!!

    South Africa
    Why are many people desecrating Alfas? Highly irritating and annoying. Recently many Alfas are being advertised with 'heart' transplants. From a Spider with a Golf engine, 916 with a Toyota engine, a 145 with a Toyota engine in the Cape. Most recent, lovely looking white 116 Gtv with a Toyota...

  19. Rest my weary mind.. and what makes you tick?

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hello all, I'm looking at buying a Giulietta. I travel 20,000 miles a year (sometimes more) so am naturally looking at the Diesels. I've test driven both the 2.0JTDM and the 1.6 and for me, I couldn't justify the extra fuel cost for the 2litre.. so 1.6 it is! Now the question is (and I know, I...
