  1. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    I seen quite a few threads over the years describing the poor MPG of our 159s. So I wondered what was actually possible. I've started doing a weekly commute of nearly 200 miles, so I decided to see what I could achieve This is my best effort so far (attached) in my 2010 159 Ti 2.0 (170) with...

    My 147 is away in the garage having her suspension redone, I really miss her, I've been sat twiddling my thumbs for an age, she's been gone over 2 weeks, just wondering how anyone else feels when they don't have their alfa nearby? Could also put in a "I'd rather..... than wait this long for my...

  4. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    For other owners this may help you some time. I had a miss fire on idle and while accelerating. I checked the plugs and coils by sight and all looked fine so I tested the Cylinder compressions just to exclude a valve problem and they were fine. I then laid out all the plugs and coils on a piece...
  5. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I sold my GTV V6 a few years ago, dabbled with a SLK350 then SLK55 AMG but i miss the Alfa. So, I am looking for a V6 Spider, does anyone know any for sale. I have seen one silver Spider on ebay but looking for other options perhaps, so any you know for sale or coming up for sale please let me...
  6. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    My first Alfa put it in to the garage this is what it needed had to get a new gear stick lever and plastic housing and a new inlet flexi hose and then I needed a flexi down pipe and the center peace had to be replace and then it needed a radiator and a service all this work has now been done...
  7. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I've replaced the 2 front suspension plates...or at least I'm trying to! The front bolt holes were so badly corroded, I had to apply heat to free the bolts, and as a result torched the rubber bushes on the forward 2 mounts. Anybody know if these are available to replace? Otherwise, I'll just...

    As much as my Giulietta is a great car (A flawed gem is probably more accurate), I really miss driving a big petrol engine car. I have had to borrow my dad's BMW 335i Convertible for a couple of days, due to the Mrs' Focus needing a clutch master cylinder. It doesn't actually feel any quicker...

  12. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Mmm. I have an issue with my GT.. I've owned my 2.0 JTS GT from new (2006 with only 36000 miles). She has again started misfiring when cold. Once warmed up a little misfire disappears and engine runs beautifully. I change the spark plugs and all four coil packs. Still I have this issue...
  13. General Motoring Discussion
    It's been about 3 years since I last drove an Alfa I honestly do miss it. I miss the pure enjoyment of just jumping an Alfa and taking it for a spin on some pokey back roads I miss how the twin spark engine revs and sounds and strangely I kind of miss the slight knock of the suspension no...
  14. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, my Alfa 2004 156 2.5 v6 is at the mechanics as it has a miss and needed cambelt/waterpump done. Cambelt/waterpump has been done and spark plugs replaced as he said that was the problem. Coils tested ok. Unfortunately when car is back together it still has the miss (pops at idle and smell of...

    Hi guys. Yesterday my car started miss firing slightly. Today the miss fire was a lot more noticeable and I'm very worried. What could be the reasons for this? Obviously spark plugs. But what else could cause the issue. Ofcourse I'm hoping it's spark plugs as this would work out cheapest. It...

    ...as a kid, autumn nights drawing in come Sept/Oct, meant one thing - the NEC Motorshow, or Motorfair at Earls Court. Getting up at the crack of dawn on a dark, chilly morning, walking to the train station, hopping on the train to Brum or to Earl's Court but not before reading all the papers'...
  17. Alfa 164 & 166
    Hi All - I've been going through the posts but can't seem to find any hints as to my current problem.... My '00 2.0 TS is running awfully, I'm having to run in lower gears, slip the clutch to get enough power to get out at Junctions, it coughs and struggles but then once above 3500 rpm, it kind...
  18. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Well, we've been together 3 years but the time has come to move onto pastures new :cry: My Stromboli Grigio 1750 TBi TI has seen me through just over 20,000 miles in that time and has never skipped a beat. This was the first nearly new car I bought and certainly the first car I've owned that I...

  20. Alfa GTA
    Hi Firstly im quite new to this site, so hello to all you fellow alfa fans. I brought a 147 GTA back in February for a very reasonable price, firstly because it was the colour I wanted and secondly because it had only just had cambelt done 10k miles ago. I brought this car with the aim of...
