  1. swapping mondeo for alfa 146 facelift

    Alfa 145 & 146
    Hey wise guys and girls of this forum. I've been offered through a website to swap my Mondeo for a 2000 146 TI. Now on the outside it looks quite cool, however I don't think all is what it seems. Here's the info of the ad: 2000 Alfa Romeo 146 TI 2.0 turbo injection petrol (V.quick!) Has done...
  2. Buy another Alfa (159) or go for practical Ford Mondeo?!

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    What do you guys think? Help needed! I currently own a MiTo cloverleaf and my wife is coming to the end of her PCP on a Ford KA. We are looking to get a family car now and I'm torn between swapping her KA for a 2.0TDCi Titanium X mondeo or going for an Alfa 159 to join the MiTo. Anyone got any...
  3. Ford Mondeo

    Cool Wall
    This is the latest Ford to benefit from the continuing evolution of Ford kinetic design, whatever that is. The technical specifications listed are from the 2.0 EcoBoost version. Engine: I4 Displacement: 1,999 cc Aspiration: 1 Borg Warner K03 turbocharger Power: 237 bhp (176.7 kW) @ 6,000 rpm...
  4. I need a big estate car - Should I buy a 159 Sportwagon or a Mondeo Estate?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I am a complete Alfa nut and would love my next car to be another Alfa .... but ..... even though the heart says 'yes' my head says 'no' and I'm drawn between my desire and common sense. Last year I decided it was time the family enjoyed some good old camping holidays and bought a secondhand...
  5. Thanks and good-bye 166, hello Mondeo(!)

    Alfa 164 & 166
    Just a note to say thanks and good bye to the forum and 166 ownership... My 166 TS just got too expensive to maintain. A bad purchase as she'd been appallingly maintained and the underside turned out to be soaked in rust - e.g. when the wheel bearings were changed my local alfa specialists had...

  7. Got Spanked By A Mondeo

    I didn't realise it was an ST til it was far enough in front for me to see the twin tail pipes. :blush:
  8. Darren156's Mondeo: A Brief History

    Motoring Images
    Right, I have just sold my XJS and shall be shortly selling my 156 V6. So, for the time being I'm gonna be stuck with the Mondeo, :rolleyes: But am I being too critical of the poor old girl...? Well yes, I fear I am. In actual fact, I hardly give this car enough credit at all. I've owned her...
  9. Bye bye Mondeo, Hello 166!

    Alfa 164 & 166
    Very happy as today I have bought a 51 plate 166TS in silver with black leather. High mileage at 101K but full history with clutch and cambelt done 5000 miles ago. It is also 6 speed with Zenons and phone slot. Am i right in thinking the phone prep isn't much use nowadays? I got it for...
  10. Ford Mondeo

    General Motoring Discussion
    My brother, before getting his Astra, had a standard diesel Mondeo. He bought it thinking it would be cheap to run, insure, etc, and to a certain degree he was right. That was until he developed a fault. It would idle fine but stall as soon as tried to shift it. Turned out to be the pump...
  11. ***** fight.. Mondeo or 3-series

    Poll Room
    I've recently noticed LOADS of BMW 3-series. It seems to have become the "family sized saloon" of choice. It even outnumbers the former family favourite (pre-Blair) Ford Mondeo though I dunno the respective registration figures. It got me wondering... which one would I have, if I was offered...
  12. New Mondeo dashboard

    General Motoring Discussion
    Just accidentally looked at some pics of the new mondeo interior. Is it just me being rude about Ford styling or does the centre console look like a 1990's midi hi - fi system from Currys??.....shiny plastic chrome, glitz and pizazzz!! :lol: Perhaps Ford should try looking at the Fiat 500...
  13. Ford Mondeo ST TDCi

    General Motoring Discussion
    Had one of these over the weekend. Capable car. Engine was a bit rough and it didn't seem to have much poke below 2.5K but it shifted down the M4 okay. Seemed to stall if you only changed into 2nd and then pulled away without stopping on the approach to lights. (My driving or a general...
  14. A Mondeo moment.....

    General Alfa Discussion
    I have posted here before and dismissed Mondeos as boring, lifeless wastes of time. I drive backroads (B's) home when I leave work every day at about 15.00- great fun - particularly when schools are out. Friday - driving said roads - in front was a diesel Mondeo. It soon became clear that we...
  15. New Mondeo?

    General Motoring Discussion
    I REALLY like it! If I was still in company car roles I'd be after one for sure! Sorry to admit it on here, but there's something about it that really connects. Plus, Ford have said that they're not going to flood the fleet market with this model, favouring more individual sales.
  16. So What Do People Think of the New Mondeo?

    General Motoring Discussion
    http://www.autoexpress.co.uk/news/autoexpressnews/202919/new_ford_mondeo.html Strangely enougth in Autoexpress magazine it says the ST version will have an inline 6-cylinder turbo 2.5, not a 5-cylinder one?
