  1. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi all! My '98 Twin Spark's speedo is currently a UK unit with MPH on the outside ring and KPH on the inside ring, however I've seen photos of KPH only instrument clusters/speedometers. Has anyone seen one for sale? Malta's KPH-only, and to go for a spirited drive with the speedo only moving...
  2. Alfa MiTo
    The errors all come on only at 70 mph. They re-set after the ignition has been turned off and the car left for a while. Diagnostics indicate it's on the front passenger side wheel. It's consistently at 70 mph and does dot come on at any other time. Has anyone else had this or can point me in...
  3. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Is this a common issue? CV joint or tulip. Hopefully not differential
  4. Alfa Giulietta
    Is there any way of getting the MPH to show on the dash screen and not just in All Weather Mode?. Thanks
  5. Alfa Giulietta
    Finally letting my 147 go after 8 years and importing a 2.0 JDTM Giulietta from family in Ireland. Much to my dismay I have realised there are no mph markings on the speedo at all! I found a conversion dial. Have any of you used the "Lockwood Superdials" in an imported KMH Giulietta? Is that...
  6. The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Evening all, I am looking at some overseas GTV6's and they are obviously all measured in kilometres, I was trying to figure out how to convert them to miles per hour. I imagine either the speedo itself or the speedo drive in the gearbox needs changing, or maybe both? Does anyone have an idea at...

  9. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    So i just passed 25000 Miles in my 07 2,4 saloon..Ever since i bought it with 62.000 Miles on the clock, she seems to have this "abnormality": When on bumby roads at slow speeds (10-20 Mph), there´s often a clonking noise from what seems to be right rear wheelsuspension. When doing 50ish...
  10. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I have a noise and vibration when driving straight or turning left in speeds between 60-80km/h (40-50 mph). If I turn just the slightest to the right the noise disappears. The feeling is that it comes from the front end of the car. I suspect CV joints more than wheel bearing since the noise...
  11. Alfa GTA
    Would be interested to know how many rev's your GTA's are doing at 80mph in 6th gear. Mine is doing 3200 rpm which seems high to me?? ( i have read threads about GTA gearbox's being replaced with 2.5 V6 gearbox's which are geared slightly differently). Thanks
  12. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello people, I have searched the forum inside out, but as you can imagine, there are way too many threads about noises. The ones I've been checking out described other issues not related at all to mine, so I thought I'd better open a new thread for it. Sorry if the topic has already been...
  13. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Just had a major repair done: new turbocharger, new AMM (uncorrect readings), new intercooler (small leak under pressure). When I drive on the motorway, I only read 0,2/0,4 bar pressure, when driving 60/80 mph, constantly cruising. I'm suspecting the turbo pressure sensor. Full load goes to 1,5...
  14. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi. I am moving back from Spain to London next month and am bringing LHD 2004 Spider with me. I am going to have to do something about the speedo. As I am not technical ,is there an easy way of doing it,as I have read about stick on dials? Help would be appreciated. John
  15. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    (1.9 JTDm - 6 manuel gears - 70.000 miles) I'm desperately trying to find the source to a low-frequency rolling noise - It is heard most clearly between 30 mph and 60 mph, not loud but always there when rolling. - Noise is very homogeneous, sounds like "wuuuhhhhhhh" ... can't record it -...
  16. Alfa MiTo
    Anyone out there who has a MITO Twinair and can tell me what the RPM is when cruising at 60-70 mph, and how the noise level feels when driving on motorways at this speed? I'm considering a Mito Twinair for motorway commuting, and I do not want a diesel.
  17. Alfa GTA
    Had the chance a couple of weeks ago to go to a drag strip. Did around 20 runs over two days, managed 7-8 13.7x times. Very happy with the results. Best 60ft: 2.14 Best 1/4: 13.68 couple of runs: Alfa GTA vs Nissan 350z 1/4 mile drag - YouTube Alfa GTA 1/4 mile vs Golf 1.8 Turbo - YouTube...
  18. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi all, On my way to the Festival of Speed, the ABS light flashed on as I was joining the motorway. It stays on until I switch off the ignition and the light doesn't illuminate until the car is travelling over 60 mph. I did have a rear wheel bearing replaced in May and this is the first time...
  19. General Motoring Discussion
    Not sure if this is quite the right thread............ I see Richard Noble and Andy Green are at it again; looking to increase the land speed record from is current 790ish MPH to 1000 MPH in the Bloodhound SSC and sure that if you were really interested you may think about sponsoring them. 1000...
