  3. 50 years of Alfa motoring

    Motoring Images
    As I have just posted, Auto Italia was held in Canberra today. We went to Canberra yesterday and, as we arrived at our hotel, there was an old Alfa Giulietta parked outside. Couldn't resist parking in front of it. It is a 1960 Giulietta so that represents a 50 year period of Alfa's history...

    General Motoring Discussion
    Saw this ad on the telly the other night, be interesting to see if they pull it off in any sort of decent timescale.
  5. Random Question non motoring

    Does any one know where i can get LED downlights from.. I did some research and cheapest i can find is about 80 bucks each online. These things use 1.5watts and have a ten year lifespan
  6. Motoring disappointments?

    General Motoring Discussion
    Are there any cars which you have always really wanted but which when you finally drove them or owned them left you very disappointed? I am a big fan of Jap sports cars and lusted over the Honda S2000 for years. As I wanted the facelifted model, insane residuals and crazy insurance (group 20!)...
  7. Tesco's NI Motoring Accessories

    Northern Ireland
    I have posted this here because it only effects us and nowhere else in the UK. Why do Tesco's in northern ireland carry green P plates, surely these are of no use to us?
  8. The dangers of open-top motoring!

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    OK, so it wasn't in a Spider, but it made me laugh! German motorway strewn with notes :cheese:
  9. A return to Italian motoring!

    Introduce Yourself
    Hi all, I've just joined AO, having yesterday bought a 2001 Alfa GTV 3.0 V6 (the one on AutoTrader at £3,495). What a stunning car. It's blue with a tan interior, with the Aero pack. A bit of an impulse purchase, so now need to get rid of my Mazda Eunos, and the 'sensible' car is a Merc A...

  11. Ready to dip into 'emotional' motoring...

    Introduce Yourself
    Hello. I've not got my Alfa yet, I'm currently looking for the perfect example (3 door, 2.0 manual, 147 Lusso, in Graphite Grey with red leather(or Red or Black with the uprated black leather seats), winter pack and Bose stereo, full history, low owners...). Might take a while, but I'm...
  12. Northern Echo Motoring Columists

    General Alfa Discussion
    Take a trip back in time before Top Gear became irreverent and stupid. Every week two journalists trundle, usually, up and down McMullen Road in Darlington and beg drives in various Kia's and Suzuki's. On Saturday the motoring supplement is supplied with "the Echo" and it goes something like...
  13. Motoring in Malaysia

    Introduce Yourself
    Hi All, I'm in an astoundingly good mood having bought my first Alfa - a 156. It's the culmination of many years of yearning. At first I simply couldn't afford it, I was living in London and the only Alfa in my life were 30p tins of Alfabetti Spaghetti. Then I started to make a little cash...
  14. Winter Motoring

    Alfa 164 & 166
    I thought I would share this mod. In winter I find that no matter how much anti-freeze you put in your screenwash (within reason) the water always freezes at the nozzle exit. One solution is to have heated sceenwash nozzles. Of course these are not available for the 166. I have fitted the...
  15. What a weekend of motoring bliss...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Eventually got the call from the dealers on friday afternoon, went through at about 3 o'clock, while we are sitting having a drink and finalising all the paper work I hear her coming around from the back, with the exhaust system there is no way of describing the noise as anything but a purr...
  16. My motoring future's looking a bit bleak...

    General Alfa Discussion
    Pasted from another forum: Got an insurance problem. Bike broke down in the way to work the other day. I'd been having some stuff done to it, so it was a bit of a "work in progress". It so happened that it broke down near where the guy who fixes my bike lives, so I texted him. No prob. He...
  17. The best & worst faces of motoring.

    Motoring Images
    Lets face it – what do we always look at when we see a new car for the first time – yes it’s the grille and frontal arrangement. The instant impression we get from this view even sub-consciously can cloud our judgement in relation to that car forever regardless of how good it may be. The...
  18. Major Motoring Moguls

    General Alfa Discussion
    Who do you think contributed most to motoring history and development. I am sure there are many but who stands tall over the rest? What kind of person deserves to be called a Motoring Mogul and what do they have to do to deserve such a title? These are my choices anyway. :p John Z Delorean –...
  19. Motoring Review of 3.2V6 GT

    General Alfa Discussion
    Tony Dron in todays Telegraph newspaper 4/9/04 gives almost favourable review of GT :) Gist of his story is that the Diesel with 16 inch wheels is the pick of the range. Seems that the turbo diesels of many marques are the choice of the reviewers :rolleyes:
  20. Motoring journo speaks some sense shock!
