    General Alfa Discussion
    Hi, everyone! Newbie here. I have been reading these forums over the past few weeks, just as I was about to get my first car. I just pulled the trigger on an Alfa Romeo Mito 1.4tb 155bhp Veloce a few days ago. I am absolutely thrilled with my purchase, it goes like a bullet, all my friends keep...

  4. beer money 147

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I don't need another car, I already have 4 including a lovely 156 V6. I don't have any room for a fifth car and I have more than enough welding to do on my X1/9. I certainly don't need an MoT-failed 2.0 TS 147 with 300mm long rust holes in each sill and worn out front upper wishbones. What's...

  7. Scrappage Scheme Has Ended - the Government Money has run out

    Alfa MiTo
    Yesterday the government has stopped all dealers of all franchises adding any new scrappage orders as they now have more orders than money available (and they have a waiting list too). So unless you have your order in - Scrappage has ended.
  8. GTV Best looking car for the money?

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I have had a GTV now for 6 years, 4 years I had a red twinnie and for the last a P3 V6, yet I still walk away from the car and look back at it as its a thing of beauty. I went to Silverdale yesterday and parked up at the wolf house gallery, some kids went by with their dad and were drooling over...
  9. Money No object .....

    Alfa GTA
    Who would you take your 156 GTA to, for a power/performance increase?
  10. If you had the money....

    Alfa GTA
    would you change the GTA for one of the following: 1. Brera S with all the 'Tuning Box' bits on 2. 159 Q4 V6 again with the tuning additions??? As AR dont plan on any GTA models anytime soon these are the closest right now. I would be tempted but think that GTA badge is a little too special
  11. not more money!!!!

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    a new problem has arisen, this one must be a common one as its electrical; when wipers are on intermittent wipe they suddenly stop midway on the screen then after a few seconds they work again then stop then start. they work on normal speed fine, thinking could this be a relay getting lazy?
  12. Dont see how this Alfetta GTV6 is worth the money

    General Alfa Discussion
    I dont see how this Alfetta GTV6 is worth $35,000 or 17,000 pounds when the average price would be $10k or $15K in Australia at the Very Most ! Ive bought and sold a few of these and although it looks like its in great condition cant see how he will get 35k for it !!:lol: Used ALFA ROMEO...
  13. I presume this is a waste of money?

    Tuning & Upgrades
    Just browsing on E-Bay, and came across this "Pro-Bitz" Tuning Box:- http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Diesel-Tuning-Performance-Chip-Box-Alfa-Romeo-159_W0QQitemZ400024230807QQcmdZViewItemQQptZUK_CarsParts_Vehicles_CarParts_SM?hash=item5d234d5b97&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14 It's so cheap that I presume it's a...
  14. Do you like to let everyone know how much money you earn?

    Or not?
  15. Cheeky money grabbing gits!

    General Alfa Discussion
    Without going in to too much detail (as who knows where my situation may end up) I am in a dispute with the lease company of my 08 Spider, which I handed back about 3 weeks ago. The car was in almost perfect condition (8 months and 10k miles old) - the only damages to the car were one kerbed...
  16. Being lazy saves you money!

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Here lies a moral for all of you. On Wednesday, I had the day off. So I thought that I would make the most of it and do something useful, like washing and waxing the GTV. It was midday on quite a hot day - round 23C. Uncoiled the hose, turned it on and began to gently spray the car to remove...

    General Alfa Discussion
    I felt so smug today I had to tell you all, I work in the Historic Restoration sector, (English Heritage and the like) and spend alot of time at stately homes and country manor houses, today I was at a rather large estate in Ripon, now I must be discreet for obvious reasons but I am sure if by...

  20. WAY too much money!

    Alfa 164 & 166
    Just spent the morning at Colchester auctions to watch a certain facelift go through. 2005 54 plate, 3.0 sportronic, nav, sunroof, heated seats, 39k miles, geo grey (i think), grey interior. Numerous scuffs, 2 of them requiring bumper spraying, at least 6 dents, and 1 nasty gouge in the thin...
