My gearbox seems to need attention. Over 40mph and in 5/6th there is a high pitched twittering sound. It doesn't go when you declutch - revving the engine with the clutch pedal down doesn't change the pitch.
Going into neutral doesn't change the pitch - however then moving the gearstick...
Hi all, just joined after buying myself an 08 GT Cloverleaf. Had an alfa 20 years ago and decided it was time for another!! Needs a little work to repair the tailgate and bumper but hope to be up and running in a week or so (being optimistic that I can find the parts) I'm from Northumberland...
So, been driving for 21 years and owned mainly Vauxhalls and Volkswagens. Fancied a change so bought an Alfa Romeo 147 JTDm 150 Lusso from a friend. It's a 2007 model that he's had from new and only covered 69000 miles with a full service history. Added bonus it's just been...
Had my 159 TI in at these guys: thewheelspecialist.co.uk yesterday for a refurb on my wheels and what a great job they did! while they had the wheels off I also opted to get the calipers resprayed and they also look mint!

I purchased a Mito 10 months ago from Benfield motors in Newcastle upon Tyne as they were the approved main dealer at the time however they recently closed and it's now Bristol Street Motors who are the approved dealer.
My mito today broke down resulting in a near miss for my wife and 2 young...
I have a white 159 TBI with anthracite wheels, I was wondering if anyone knows where i could get my wing mirrors wrapped to match?
Thats my thoughts anyway, what do you think it would look like?
I just have to bring to the attention of those who don't already know about Benfield Alfa Romeo in Newcastle upon Tyne.
Once again they have gone way beyond the call of duty but this time have surpassed ALL expectations.
I'll try and keep it brief but I bought a beautiful shiney...
Since moving down here for the next 8 or so months I'd like to hear my Wizard Unicorse replica in a tunnel properly. Any decent ones near about? Preferably some where I can give it some beans without consequence ;)
Does anyone in Newcastle, or close by have a diagnostic setup which can scan a 2004 156?
I usually go down to QSP for my mechanical needs but simply don't have the time to make the trip at the minute :(
I have concluded that I have an ABS sensor fault, just need to know which...
I've just been into my local Alfa Dealer (Benfield Alfa) in Newcastle to order a hand brake cable and they've got a stock of unbelievably cheap nearly new Alfas, one with only 2,800 miles on the clock but with nearly £10,000 off the list price!!!
I'm just wondering how on earth can they...

My name is Patrick and I recently (very recent) purchased an Alfa 147 2.0 TS.
It's been only two days but I have had one of the best two days ever since I have been driving.
Very fun to drive and little tech advanced things to enjoy like audio control on steering wheel etc.
