  1. Steering Wheel Replacement with newer version

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi all I have a 2010 Cloverleaf and the previous owner wrapped the wheel fascia around the buttons etc but the wrap is peeling. Will a newer style steering wheel be a direct fit and can ?I use my current air bag in the new wheel. Pic1 is my current wheel (not the actual) and pic 2 is the one...
  2. Giulietta newer style rear diffuser (twin exhaust)

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi all, Does anyone know the part number for the later style 'ribbed' rear diffuser for the Giulietta - one with the twin exhaust exit? Where is the best place to buy etc? Will this fit easily as a straightforward replacement fit on my 2011 Giulietta Cloverleaf? Thanks in advance!
  3. 2.0 JTDM QV Line vs newer Veloce 1.4 TBI?

    Alfa Giulietta
    My 2015 2.0 JDTM is a few years old now and my finance deal is up Dec 2019, so starting early thoughts about a replacement, either a similar year Quadrifoglio, a Giulia or the newer Giulietta Veloce. A job change means I commute fewer miles now so a petrol engine might still work. Any opinions...
  4. Out with the old in with the!

    South Africa
    So I've finally decided to trade in my trusty 147 JTDm for a new car. I've found a 2015 Fiat 500 1.4 Sport in what I call battleship grey. I like that it's got the Abarth look without the rock hard ride or the maintenance costs. It's only done 17000km and looks like a new car. Its still got...
  5. mp3 playback/ fitting a newer radio

    Alfa MiTo
    I have a 2009 1.3JTDM and have the factory fitted radio. I think there is currently a CD stuck inside it, when I press the media button it says reading and then disk error but nothing happens when I press eject. Is there any way to get the stuck disc out, I have looked at the ICE forum and am...
  6. Newer than New!

    Introduce Yourself
    So new, in fact, that I don't have an Alfa. YET! Test drove a Giulia, yesterday, and fell in love. What is to follow will be additional research and arranging financing so that I can have that feeling, again, every day! Only previous time behind the wheel of an Alfa was a number of years ago in...

  8. Differences between the older and newer 159/Brera satnav

    ICE & Blue&Me
    What are the appreciable differences between these two? I think the only difference is the newer one has maps on SD card rather than CD? This lets you listen to a CD and navigate at the same time but wouldn't the first unit let you do that by using a nav CD in the unit and listening to a disc in...
  9. Other (newer) TomTom model in the bracket ??

    Alfa Giulietta
    Has anyone tried any of the newer TomTom models in the dash mount B&M2 bracket ? I know you'd lose the media controls and the amazing (not) eco graph thing, it's just the handy mount and the power supply I'd be using the bracket for. The Blue&Me2 Tomtom is showing its age a bit now I think...
  10. What sat nav/ newer tomtom fits in the 68r blue&me port on the Giulietta?

    ICE & Blue&Me
    I'm picking up a G next week with the blue and me cradle holder installed, but no sat nav... So the Blue and Me 2 looks pretty ancient now, and people on the Fiat forum reckon you can just buy the cradle and then ram a newer tomtom into it and it will still draw power - you just lose a few...

    General Alfa Discussion

  12. A newer Alfa for me

    Introduce Yourself
    Hi all Having been a GTV owner for a few years, the time came for me to get a newer model, although my hand was forced by the fact that the engine died So after spending a weekend going round garages with an open mind as to what to buy, I found myself drawn to the local Alfa dealer, as my GTV...

  14. Alfa 159 sportwagon 2006 v newer 2008+

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi All, I am currently very much sucked in by the Alfa 159 Sportwagons charms and particularly its looks compared to my present and can see lots of reasons not to buy one including failed steering racks, sticky EGR valves and big bills!!:rolleyes: I am new to the site and currently have owned...
  15. Differance between newer & older 156's

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I am going out to view a few 156's this week, They are 2001' models but I want to know how do I tell if the car is one that was built in 2001 or if it is an older model that was registered in 2001'? I am going down with a handheld code reader which reads CANBUS EOBD EOBD II. My code reader...
  16. Newer higher miles vs older lower miles?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Looking at two 159 sw both lusso. The first one has 72k on a 57 plate with a better spec (18's wheels and sat nav), the other is on a 56 plate with 44k , which one should I choose? They are both the same price, thanks.
  17. 156 GTA Late Model (2005) Any Newer Ones Out There?

    General Alfa Discussion
    Hi everyone, I just wanted to try and find out if my 156 GTA is one of the last ones made or if anyone has a later registered one than me. It's always good to know as it may help me when I come to sell it. I know when I bought it I was told it was one of the last, but not sure how many more are...
  18. Painting a newer GT HU to look like an older GT HU

    ICE & Blue&Me
    Ok so I am getting tired of the Blaupunkt aftermarket HU I had installed around a year ago (doesn't fit well despite fascia adaptor, have lost use of cupholder, USB stick works poorly) so am considering re-fitting the OEM HU. I managed to source the version that plays MP3 CDs, but it is a...
  19. Upgrading to a newer 156

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi I have a W Reg 156 1.8TS which I love and have had for 2 and a bit years. But I have an urge to buy something newer and lower mileage. I'm thinking about going to look at this 2.0 JTS VELOCE Auto Trader UK - ALFA ROMEO 156 2.0 JTS VELOCE 2 4DR ##RARE MODEL##. I went to look at one similar to...
  20. On the lookout for a new(er) Alfa...

    South Scotland
    My 1999 156 has got a bad case of tin-worm underneath. I should be able to get it an MOT, but think it might be time to move onto something a bit newer. I'd like to stick with Alfa, so if anyone knows of one going, please let me know. 156/147/166 preferred, but anything considered. Should be...
