  1. What Other Models would You Like to See Rivian Produce?

    General Motoring Discussion
    How about a Rivian 6x6 Super Duty Pickup?! We might have taken it a little overboard but this should work. This Rivian 6x6 Off-Road Super Duty is more than capable for any terrain you throw at it. Some of the "dream" specs would include a uniquely shaped frontal bull bar to provide added...
  2. Keeping old models on the road

    General Motoring Discussion
    It seems some British car makers (and others) are very concerned that future regulations will prevent cars with internal combustion engines from being used on the road. Specifically, they worry what this will mean for owners who still have classic or antique versions of their products, so...
  3. Lusso / Veloce / Collezione / Sprint / Distinctive / Executive... Wha?!

    Alfa Giulietta
    Ok, so, I think I want a Giulietta. i've searched around a bit and can't seem to find definitive answers... So, it looks like the Giulietta launched with 2 trim levels, Lusso - more luxury, silver headlights and Veloce, dark headlights, sports suspension. From looks, the Veloce is the one for...
  4. S4 Spider Veloce - US/Euro models - Tuning

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    I've searched the database here and can't throw up any answers. The questions I have are (i) whether US-spec Spiders have a different map to Euro-spec Spiders, and (ii) if so, if there is some advantage to remapping my Spider to Euro-spec. I have a 1991 LHD Spider Veloce which was imported from...
  5. Are headgasket failures common on Cloverleaf models?

    Alfa Giulietta
    Have just come across a very nice 2010 Cloverleaf with 92k miles for £3k, the problem is that it has a headgasket failure. Is this a common issue on the Giulietta and is the dreaded alfa water pump the usual culprit? Anybody had a similar experience and be able to offer guidance on what else I...
  6. What IS the standard and optional specifications on the models anyway?

    Alfa Giulia
    So I ordered a Giulia Speciale but even now I am not 100% sure on what the car does and doesn't come with. Or what the packs or extras do! The dealers are pretty incompetent and useless. I was advised by the Giulia 'expert' (who appeared to be a 17 year old kid) that on the car I was driving...
  7. Sought after models?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi all :) Bit of a Sunday discussion. I am wondering which models included in this forum category people think will become the sought after rarer cars as they age? :) I would have to say that I think the 3.2 Brera's will probably go up in value as they become rarer in the future as they will...

    Alfa Giulia
    A little story for the benefit of all Giulia owners - Trust me this will be handy one day! Woke up this morning and my alarm went off. Came down and switched it off with keyfob and it kept going off. So went out, unlocked the car, still with keyfob, got in and switched ignition on - cluster...

    Alfa Giulietta
    Does anyone know the turbo manufacturer and models that is installed in the various G models? I ask because I am looking to try and get turbo blankets to replace the current metal heat shields. It's not just a looks thing but also an improvement in the reduction of turbo lag. I have seen them...
  11. Alfa models diorama

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I made myself a wasteland/car park diorama for all the models of the Italian cars that I've owned. (there is also a Fiat Multipla, but it's the wrong scale) This was my first attempt at a diorama, so quite pleased with the results. Not much out there for 1/42 scale models though.

  15. Which Alfa models can take roof bars?

    General Alfa Discussion
    Hopefully there are members here that can tell me which models can take roof bars and their location fore and aft on the car.

    - Are they also plagued by the issue of water leaking in the tailgate / lock compartment? - Is the instrument cluster cover made of cheap, highly scratchable plastic? - U-Connect with Satnav: does it come with Live traffic information and speed cameras? thanks :thumbs:
