  1. Tyre pressure monitoring system

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Does anyone have the factory fitted tyre pressure monitoring system on their 159? I'm interested to know more about it and if it works like the modern ones I've seen by picking up the wheel speed and comparing it to preset values.
  2. Blind Spot Monitoring

    Alfa Stelvio
    My Stelvio (bought in Switzerland) has the blind spot monitoring option. The warning is an optical sign in the outside back mirror, but there is no additional accustic warning. This is poor especially when the sun is shining, the warning lamp can hardly be seen. I wonder wether there is an other...
  3. Tyre Monitoring

    Alfa Giulia
    I noticed in Evo Magazine that the picture of the tyre monitoring screen in their long term test Quad had a key showing temperatures, presumably tyre temperatures. I've double checked mine and I don't have temperatures, but I seem to remember that the wheels used to show blue on the image of...
  4. Tyre Pressure Monitoring

    Alfa Giulia
    Did anyone else get problems with tyre pressure warnings in the cold snap this morning. I noticed a few weeks ago when the temperature dropped suddenly that I got a warning for low pressure on one of the wheels. It cleared when I stopped, but that coincided with an increase in ambient...

    General Motoring Discussion
    Are they any good? Do they actually work?
  6. 147 Monitoring System Failure (Check engine)

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    As I was overtaking yesterday and today, I noticed that my rev limitator is not working properly. It gets to 7k rpm, and used to go up to 7,2k, and when it gets to 7k rpm it puts FULL ENGINE BREAK up to 6K and you can really feel it. I mean, that is what I think, I didnt really look at the RPMs...

    General Alfa Discussion
    Hi, After a quick word with the AO Admin, I'm posting this here at their suggestion in the hopes that it might be useful to someone... Some of you may know of the Fiat Coupe Barnacle Widget which I developed - I know there are one or two fitted to 155s. I've since coded up a *very* rough and...
  11. Head up display and Tyre Pressure Monitoring System

    Tuning & Upgrades
    I just stumbled across this gadget in the AO classifieds forum. Notwithstanding the significant cost (£360) it seems like an impressive new gadget, which plugs into the OBDII port (does the GT have one?) and projects information onto your windscreen including: Speed MPG Throttle position Revs...
