  10. Metallic rattle

    Alfa GTA
    When I first start my 147GTA from cold I hear a metallic rattle for about a minute. Doesn't happen when the car is already warm. It's hard to work out where it's coming from exactly, but think it's underneath the car about halfway down, rather than the engine. I'm guessing it's one of the...

    Hi Alfistis Looking at a slightly used 147 with black metallic paint and beige leather seats. Dealer has offered to DiamondBrite it for free. Question on the beige interior - how easy is it to keep clean? Silly question really I suppose, perhaps as it's a lighter colour it will prompt me to...

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    When I bought my Gtv it was described as Meteor Grey. A few other owners concurred it was Meteor Grey. From somewhere (I can't remember where) I started to get the idea it might be Gunmetal, but thanks to some advice on here recently I have now discovered it is neither. It is Eclipse Grey...

    Alfa 164 & 166
    Hi all, I've noticed that there's a horrible metallic rattling coming from the front of the car. I doesn't appear to change with speed and it's not coming from the engine.

    Re: Metallic rubbing noise when turning left Regarding my 2002 GTV 2.0 TS. When cornering left there is a metallic rubbing/grinding noise coming from the front of the car. My thoughts are possible drive shaft or wheel bearing. Can anyone confirm or dismiss my ideas?
  19. Quick question on applying metallic paint

    Alfa 145 & 146
    Hi, I'm hoping there's someone who's done a bit of metallic spraying. I've got the metallic paint layers down. I put one thick coat on, flatted it & then applied 2 thin coats. It is rough but very even in colour and texture (a lot better than I hoped). Would it be best to flat it before...
