  2. Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider

  3. Engines (TS, JTS, JTD & V6)
    As the title said, its time for a new engine after a big end failure. There's a few on eBay for around £300, but I'd prefer to buy from somewhere that I can see it for myself before I buy. Also, I reckon I stopped the engine in time to avoid the worst of the damage could be done. Is it worth...

  8. General Alfa Discussion
    I've seen the 'Italian Police 159' thread but this evening I saw a black 159 with blue flashing lights in the front grill heading towards the A46 at the junction with the M6. He was 'pressing on' and I have to say looked pretty :cool: I really wouldn't mind being pulled over if the copper had...
  9. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    First of all I know Gus comes highly recommended on here, but I wondered if anyone had any recommendations for remaps in or around the East Midlands? (I'm based in Nottingham) Or is it definitely worth the 200 mile round trip to St Helens?
