  1. Blink and you've missed it (GTV Cup 102 for sale)

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I think this one was on Pistonheads for a day or so: Now sold. Not sure if it's been bought by anyone on here, but for the mileage (<30k miles) and condition it does look stunning. Prices look...
  2. No beats missed

    South Africa
    My 159ti left home in August 2016 along with my ex wife and half my *****. Luckily without my intervention it was ruled that my wayward car should return home where it belongs as even after settlement, the ex would not be able to maintain the car. I got her back on 15 December and since I was...
  3. Classic Gold, Opportunities missed..

    General Motoring Discussion
    The recent surge in classic car prices has made me ponder What solid gold classic investment opportunities have we missed , cars that we thought nothing of when we saw them languishing in a showroom or on a forecourt in the not so distant past, but on reflection if we had taken the plunge...
  4. Full JTDm clutch rebuild....have I missed anything??

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    So my 147 16v JTDm is showing all of the symptoms of a dying Dual Mass Flywheel (DMF). It's recently had a new slave cylinder and also had the vibration damper pipe deleted. This will be the second clutch replacement the car will have had. The first time the local dealer replaced the friction...
  5. Goodbye Mito, you will be missed.

    Alfa MiTo
    I bought my Mito 1.4 multiAir 135 Distinctive new in December 2012 and last week I had a letter from Alfa saying that as it was approaching 5 years old it had passed the recommended age for replacing the cambelt. I went to my local dealer to discuss this with them and they quoted £482 including...
  6. Britains Got Talent a missed opportunity

    General Alfa Discussion
    Before you start please allow me to go on record and state that I am not a fan of Britains Got Talent or any of Simon Cowell's sugar coated bugglegum drivel tv..... However unfortunately my kids are, and last night whilst I was pottering about, my son shouts out that BGT are offering a brand...
  7. Missed out on a 166 - gutted!

    Alfa 164 & 166
    Hi all, I have been contemplating stepping back into the world of the mighty 166 (see my other post about this!). I really want a 2.0 Facelift in superb condition and with sensible miles as I do a fair amount myself. I was looking at one on Ebay a few weeks ago but it sold. I don't normally...
  8. An Opportunity Not To Be Missed !

    East Anglia
    Hi everyone. Been a bit quiet in here of late so I'll try to kick things off. The Regional Support Staff really want to get the Regions going again so we are looking for new Regional Reps to help us with this. It's a rewarding and fun job and you can spend as much time on it as you want or...
  9. ALFA GTV 3.0 Bargain and missed it

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Called first thing this morning and two lads were out test driving. No call back so i guess it had gone! Bit of a bargain but i have bagged one for the...
  10. 147 lower arms replaced, have i missed something......??

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Just had the lower arms replaced and the handling is shocking!! Thankfully the squeaking has stopped, but the car feels wayward. Unsettled over rough road surfaces, and I'm sure there's a bit of under-steer in there too!! Deffo not got the confidence to throw her around (missus....!!)...
  11. An Opportunity Not To Be Missed !

    Hi everyone. Been a bit quiet in here of late so I'll try to kick things off. The more observant amongst you may have noticed that I've changed colour, ooer ! :wow: I've taken on a job in Regional Support which makes this an ideal time for someone else to take over the day to day stuff for...
  12. Missed out on this

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider Just looking for a new exhaust & seen this
  13. I think I missed out on the 'Quality' thing...!!

    General Motoring Discussion
    Errr... I guess starting with a Citroen Dyane , then a brace of Citroen BX , anything made of more than tin and egg boxes shouted quality. I did pass on Citroen in 1979 despite more advanced technology for a more solid Lancia Beta 1300, which I loved. But today, a Dacia or MG, both solid...

    Alfa GTA
