Wife is dropping it off for me for MOT this morning.
I never used to be nervous with other marques, but something about Alfa always gets the nerves jangling at MOT time!
1.9jtdm 2007 104,000 (no mods) had it 4 years and running as good as ever.
Not long ago sold the 156 SW we had for 12 years...
Hi, have bought an Alfa Romeo Giulietta 2011, jdtm-2 140bhp, for the first 5 months no problems, enjoyable motoring.
Since then have had issues, the latest of which involved the engine cutting out completely and the red oil light coming on.
The cambelt and water pump was changed by alfa, less...
Good evening all, this is my first attempt at joining a forum, so be patient with me!
My car is a very handsome 159 2.0 litre in carbonara black, which I bought used in May last year. I've read loads of threads on here, and learnt many snippets of useful information.
So, finally, I'm an...
So, I'm very interested in getting a Brera as my next car particularly the 3.2L V6 (or the 'S' if I can find one). I have spent an absolute fortune on my current car and have been told that it's far too impractical for anyone to use and therefore I am having to sell my beloved Lotus...
New to this forum and also to Alfa's so go easy :)
Recently ordered a Giulietta that is hopefully being assembled as we speak. Have been given a rough date of delivery of towards the end of July.
Just wanted to know if anybody had any thoughts on the likelihood of this being...
Well...collected my first Alfa Saturday from Chesterfield, a 2002 2ltr Lusso, & had a trouble free 170 mile drive back to Essex the home of my 2.8 injection Capri!
After 3yrs using the Capri as my daily driver i couldnt believe how i put up with no air conditioning for all that time...i got out...
I have a confession to make....my daily driver is a Ford...not just any Ford..A 1985 2.8 injection Capri..my pride & joy..but the time has come to keep her for the Show season/Summer use only.
My daily driver should be a reliable cheap to run inexpensive runabout...but hey.. Alfa owners i...
Hi all my name is Johnny Simpson and I am the proud owner of my now 2nd Alfa so I must be getting the bug.
I had a 2.2 JTS Spider which I have just changed for a 159 TI Sportwagon. Love both cars, have had a lot of up and downs with the Spider, but I am stil driving an Alfa and wish to do so...
Just to say Hi as Ive just bought my first Alfa....and she is gorgeous, I havent stopped smiling since I picked her up! She is a gorgeous Red (had to change my first word!) GT with beautiful Tan Leather interior....and Im smitten. I'll admit Ive never bought a car BEFORE I test drove it before...
Passenger will be me. Driver will be my wife, Lara. She hasn't driven the GT yet and I need somewhere reasonably fast and smooth (no potholes) in the Glasgow area.
Just watched the 159 on Top Gear and now she's insisting on a go.
Took the bella for her MOT expecting loads of problems (after 10 years its due....0
1. number plate light bulb gone (this I forget to check every year and every year one has blown!!!)
2. Front wiper blade
3. Failed Lambda, again by 0.06. Range 0.97 - 1.03 mine was 1.09
Between us we tweaked...
In about an hour the 166 starts her tour as a wedding car for two of my friends wedding.
I'm more nervous than I was at my wedding!
the Car hasn't turned out quite the way I expected it.
I tried tieing a bow to the Alfa logo on the boot but I was lacking in skills to make it look good...
Even since the accident last week,
Brera has been very nervous.
Everytime I flick the rear washer,
it wets itself from the back of the front
driver's side wheel-arch. Ahhh!
Good thing it's booked in for the insurance
"expertise" next Friday.
....all at the same time.
Hello fellow Alpha nerds ;o)
Well, here I am on the verge of collecting a very sexy piece of machinery.
It's been a long time since I've been this excited about a mode of transport but for the first time in about six years I'm gonna be driving a little bit of class...
Hello there everyone
I have to admit i lied ever so slightly about the car i drive, its really the car i want to drive and am hopefully buying one at the weekend. It is a 1997 metallic black 2.0 gtv lusso with 60k on the clock. I have done a bit of research and know to scrutinise the service...
