  2. The dreaded Dashboard off moment

    Alfa Giulia
    Hi all, After its first service, the lovely people at Thames Motor Group in Slough (well been lovely to me so far) want my car back next to take the dashboard off. Picked up a rattle on the instrument cluster I mentioned before going in for the service. Rather painless so far but having the...
  3. Over-steer moment magic in Veloce

    Alfa Giulia
    These cars are magic in an over-steer! Of course, we can't induce a tail slide because the Alfa engineers have decreed that it shall not be so (it's sad but also I'm certain I would have binned mine 3 or 4 times already without it) However, out of the blue I hit a slippery bit of road on a...
  4. Best source for quality top wish bone at a good price at the moment.

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    As the title says really ...where is the cheapest place to get a left upper wishbone for a late (so the different taper) 159? Lots on ebay seem to be selling one type for all years....we all know that wont work. Want a branded one...rather than a no name Chinese one. Meryle, Borg and Beck or TRW...
  5. Autoglym moment...

    Car Detailing
    HI, I have a preference for Autoglym products as I have found them to be good quality and have a broad spectrum of products for internal, external and under bonnet cleaning. Only this weekend I had something of a surprise... Having purchased my last GT in March this year I though it time to...
  6. Apple's VW Moment?

    The Technology Section
    Apple's iPhones slowed to tackle ageing batteries - BBC News Shocked. Shocked I tells ya! :tut:
  7. Moment of Madness!

    Introduce Yourself
    Hi everyone Yep - in a moment of madness I have bought myself a 2004 Alfa GT and even though I was wary of the potential problems of Alfa ownership I was warned about - I still bought it and love it! Already used this site to find out and fix the airbag warning light which was on - so easy...
  8. I'm quite sad at the moment...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Yes... Quite sad... :cry:
  9. Left headlight doesn't work (xenon), works for a moment when lights are just turnedon

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Obviously, my first idea was that the bulb is out. But before I went out and bought a new set of H7 bulbs, I wanted to see if it's really dead. I parked infront of a window of a closed shop to see the reflection, and the left one comes on for a milisecond when I turn the lights on, and then goes...
  10. Any AO-ers running an electric car at the moment?

    General Motoring Discussion
    With the Yeti coming to the end of its PCP in 9 months time, it is time to start thinking about what to change it to (is there a better past time than car searching?) The daily "commute/school run" is about to get much longer as the oldest heads off to senior school, so I will have two schools...
  11. My first Alfa moment

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Alright guys :) Today I had my first Italian moment in my car. Very very strange. I had it drove onto a garage ramp. The bloke tracked up the front wheels for me. And then boom wouldn't start. Not a bean. We pushed it off the ramp. Rolled it round the front of the workshop and then popped the...
  12. Retro Moment

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Yesterday was listening to a CD and on arrival at destination switched off engine. On departure switched on engine and music restarted. Oddly on dash screen instead of CD icon I had a picture of a cassette and instead I'm of CD 2 it said Tape 2. I restarted engine and all went back to normal...
  13. Because VW's getting a bloody nose at the moment...

  15. Hooligan moment...

    South Africa
    ...and then you change to 3rd at 100km/h and mash the throttle and the nose breaks traction again on the damp surface of the N1 all the way to 150km/h with steam coming out of the tires and you snap to 4th and watch the speedo edge to 200km/h with the car still snaking and popping off the rev...
  16. Proud moment...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Ok so it't not that big of a deal compared to the work you guys do everyday but for me (A mechanical retard) it was a big first step. My car was having trouble starting over the last couple of days. With a little help from Gaz via WhatsApp I replaced the battery :D :lol: Before long I will...
  17. Feeling a little smug at the moment

    South Africa
    I've got a BMW E90 driving mate who always gives me serious stick when anything minor goes wrong with my Alfa's. So I had to feel a little bit smug when a few months ago his beemer left him stranded when a VANOS sensor failed (cost him nearly R10K) then this week he messaged me to say that it's...
  18. It was an Alfa moment

    South Africa
    Weekend or two ago I was driving home on the freeway and this white Guiletta draws up next to me. Now, I think we have all seen the advert, the pretty chicks and I thought for a moment I was seeing that advertisement again because a stunning blond driving the Guiletta looked at me and smiled and...

  20. Scary brake moment

    Alfa GTA
    Had this fault a happen a couple of times before but at low speeds. Tonight it was 80 mph in the fast lane of the motorway and it wasn't nice. The fault- For no reason and without warning the drivers side front wheel brakes itself hard and sharp and yellow light blinks on and off (abs I think...
