  1. Tuning & Upgrades
    Just got a brand new set of Alfa rods delivered for my 2.8 v6 12v Busso ongoing project (no car for it yet of course!) so I couldn't resist unwrapping one of the Wossner pistons just to see how it looked on a brand new rod: Mmm, nice! You can easily see how they increase the compression, look...

    My youngest daughter was in the car the other day and noticed the sport/winter mode button. I was picking her up from her shift at hospital. She thought it would be funny to press it on sport mode while I was watching traffic at a t junction. But she kept her finger down until it lit up on...

    Dear Alfa drivers I sold my beloved 159 1.9 JTDM ... It was a very big mistake. The Christmas season brings many good memories and only makes it harder to live without it. - I miss it like you miss an old faithful dog :crying: There is only one answer to my sorrow, which is to buy a new one...
  9. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    WARNING, my method is pretty silly brute force method so finesse geeks can have a different cup of tea or something. The first step are obvious and covered by youtube videoes. 1. On the ground loosed axle nut. (See threads about modified socket) 2. Jack up car (I have a lift). 3. Remove...

  12. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I decided today would be a good day to replace the lower wishbones on my 156. I had a knock when steering, the guy who MoT'd it said that its too much play in the lower wishbone ball joints. I have been working on it since 2pm (writing this at 8:50 pm) and I have made a big mistake! result is i...

    In this article Harald Wester describes the 159 an unfortunate legacy of the GM link which was launched by Karl-Heinz Kalbfell near to his previous job at BMW, in Monaco. Fiat, guerra ai tedeschi con Maserati e Alfa «Non faremo più errori» - IlGiornale.it "and we had to produce it by force. Too...

    Mr Marchionne said today that the 159 was a mistake from Alfa.. He said the car was at least 400kgs to heavy and the GM engine wasn't good enough.. He says the next sedan will have a '***' engine. He says Alfa will not make this mistake again.. The next D-segment car will be lighter and it...
  15. Introduce Yourself
    Hello all, I own a 2005 147 diesel JTD. A few days ago I noticed a sudden blowing noise from the front of the engine. A local garage informed me that the EGR pipe had corroded and a replacement would cost in the region of £350. The guy was decent and advised me to get a second hand part which...
  16. The Technology Section
    We live in a remote country lane. Our telephone, hence broadband line leaves the house and goes to an overhead telegraph pole and thence (I assume) to a cabinet in the street which, in turn, connects to the exchange. We are with BT and the best broadband speed I can get runs at 1.5 whatever the...
  17. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    hi all. i made a silly mistake by thinking that one of the tuning chips from italiabox would be able to make a difference to my 2.4. in fact it did for about 3 weeks. economy went up to about 40 mpg and it felt quicker but then the mistake part took over. for some reason the car has not...
