  1. Buying a high mileage QV

    Alfa Giulia
    I've been keeping tabs on used QV prices to see if I can squeeze myself into QV ownership next year. Prices have generally held strong with a few slowly coming to £37-38k mark. Recently a high mileage (70k) Giulia QV popped up on auto trader...

    I will quietly leave this link here... :( Offers considered.
  3. Blue&Me Mileage

    ICE & Blue&Me
    Hi, I recently bought a tomtom2 satnav for my Giulietta. I quite like the way it integrates with the car. However when using it the mileage for the next turn displayed on the cluster display is always different to what's on the tomtom. I.e. the next turn will be in 5 miles, but the cluster...
  4. Giulia Petrol - Oil Service mileage question

    Alfa Giulia
    Fellow Alfa owners and mechanic friends, I have my Veloce booked in for its (first) 9K service on the 8th November which is when its convenient for me with my work schedule. It now looks like I am going to be hitting 10K by the time I get to the service date, can anyone forsee any issues with...
  5. PCP - how does mileage work?

    General Motoring Discussion
    I was having a look at new cars, as you do... :D I've noticed that PCP car prices are cheaper than "cash" since for the most part, manufacturers throw in a £x,000 deposit contribution. So, if I'm going to buy a new motor, it looks like PCP is the way to go. Just the final balloon payment...
  6. Low mileage water pump replacement

    Alfa MiTo
    Hello everyone. I’ve been browsing the forums the last couple of weeks since I was gathering information before getting my Mito. I’m the new happy owner of a single owner 2011 Mito 1.4 155hp with just under 32000km (20k miles). As it has been a low mileage car, some things haven’t been replaced...
  7. High mileage GTA

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Is there a buyer's guide for the 156 GTA? I've been looking at some high mileage ones that are currently for sale and wondered if it's worth buying them for the relatively steep asking price. Also, what's the difference between the Q2 AND Quaife differentials? I've caught the ALFA bug! Sent...
  8. Cup mileage

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Are high miles a block to selling my Cup? £8,500 for no 122 and not a single call so Far? Is it too much money? Thoughts?
  9. Mileage, Clutch and DMF status - on 159 2.0 JTDM

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Calling all 2.0 JTDM owners! Can you post what your current mileage is, whether you've had a clutch and/or DMF failure, (if so, at what mileage) I'm trying to get an idea of how much life there might be left in my old girl. I know it's not very scientific, but hey - that's OK. I'll start...
  10. Mileage and trip info flashing, what's the fix please?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I have recently acquired a '06 1.9 16v 147 TI and just recently the mileage and trip figures flash intermittently and I would like to stop it. I've already owned a 2 litre TS and a 2.4 156 and my wife had a 147 16v 1.9 and I seem to remember this happening to one of them, which was an easy fix...

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Red V6 GTV on eBay caught my eye, did an hpi check and it came up as an insurance write off. [emoji55] Has anyone experience of buying insurance write off cars? Pros & cons, please? Thanks. Sent from my Brera using Tapatalk
  12. It's strange what an MOT can do to a car's mileage...

    General Motoring Discussion
    While having a casual browse for a 2.6, I spotted this. An MOT check on it shows... well, something interesting. Could be a legitimate mistake, but would this discrepancy not be flagged at MOT time that the car appears to have gone back in time...

  14. Clocked mileage 4C question

    4C & 4C Spider
    Hi there, I’m looking at purchasing a 2014 4C which is stated as having 14,000 miles from new, however it’s stating that this milage is incorrect. Last service says 34k in 2017 but I have no idea how many miles it’s done in the last year so don’t know if it’s on 40k+miles I’m abit worried...
  15. 2018 Mito stereo swap flashing mileage

    Alfa MiTo
    Hi all I have just bought a brand new Mito after my 147 sadly got to the point where I was spending more time fixing it than actually driving. only thing is I'm having a bit of an issue. I have swapped out the Uconnect system (non-satnav version) for a lovely and much more functional pioneer...
  16. Correct odometer mileage

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I did a search but couldnt find the exact answer. My 2.5 v6 speedo has stopped working, mileage still counting ok. Ive got a replacement speedo and that works but the mileage is way out. So I swapped the clock face with the needle motor over to the circuit board and lcd from my old correct...
  17. Brera 2.4 JTDM High Mileage?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi All, I've been a long time member of the community, purchasing my first Alfa back in 2010 (A Mito, from the now seemingly defunct Western in Glasgow) and now getting back into the game with the imminent purchase of a Brera. I've always like the look of the thing and have seen a few good...
  18. Used but low mileage V6 coil packs (Bosch) available

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi - any interest out there in some used Bosch coil packs? I have a full set of 6 available taken from my 3.0 litre during the last service - car only has 58,000 km on the clock currently (36,000 miles). Was feeling a bit extravagant (!) when she went in for her last service and decided to...
  19. 159 mileage - how much is too much?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Now our second kid has arrived we're thinking about swapping our GT 2.0 JTS for a 159, really so we can get 4 doors. We've done 25k miles in 4 years with the GT. The 159s get a lot cheaper when the mileage gets above 90k. I reckon we'll want to keep the car for about 3 years until the Giulia...
  20. Higher mileage V6 engine issues?

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Just wondering what sort of things I can expect to encounter with higher mileage (currently 134,000 miles) V6 engine? Service history is excellent and there are no problems at the moment. It's a CF2 engine. The reason I am interested is because I plan to go down the supercharger route next year...
