  1. Alfa Giulietta
    Morning guys, I've had the worst morning :( Just parked up in the same car park I've been using for the last 12 months and careless scraped my passenger front wheel arch and drivers' side rear wheel arch against the wall (not another car, I'm not like that!). I'm literally heart broken right...
  2. Introduce Yourself
    Evening all, Newbie from Nottingham here so thought I'd say hi. I've just picked up a tired 156 2.0 Sportwagon, mechanically she's spot on with good history, but she needs a bit of tlc with the bodywork. Not my first Alfa, I used to have a 147 Selespeed, fantastic car with the most bizarre...

  4. Introduce Yourself
    Morning guys ? my name is Chris I'm 40 and living in Nottingham. I love my cars and just come from a stunning clio 197 sport into a 2006 brera 3.2v6 q4. Car has covered a mere 56k with full service history. I have owned the car for less than a month now and just over the last week I have a...
  5. East Midlands
    Hi all, I'm in need of assistance, my147 is suffering from the missing 4th gear problem, and I'd like to try and sort it myself, as it doesn't actually seem that difficult a job. However, I don't own a jack or axle stands, and without them I'm not gonna be able to sort it, plus I'm not 100% sure...
  6. East Midlands
    I had some bad luck last night, some idiot woman cut me up on a roundabout and has all but destroyed my front bumper and passenger front wing! Does anybody know of a decent bodyshop or Alfa specialist in the Notts area who can give me a quote or do the work?
  7. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I just want to say a big public 'Thank you' to MGC in Nottingham. My undertray was hanging on by one bolt and they were near by, so I popped in. They fixed it back on for me in 10 minutes and didn't even charge me! They've always given me excellent service and for that, I'll give them a...

  9. Car Detailing
    Hey guys I'm looking into getting my alloys refurbed, and there's a new place opened in Nottingham that I pass every day on my way to work. They're called Speedy's and appear to have a few branches dotted around. Has anyone used them? They quote 'from' £25 per wheel for a refurb - sounds very...
  10. Introduce Yourself
    Well, I know very little about cars so maybe an alfa was a brave purchase. Got my self an 04 156 jtd multijet 20v. Absolutely love driving her straight away. Bit scared so it's nice to be part of a large group of potential worries lol. Its my first proper car as I've always driven a van. Which...

  12. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I collect my gt q2 tomorrow after searching for ages for the right one. Just to warn people of one that I almost bought from a dealer near Mansfield, Nottingham. I did some digging and discovered that in mid 2010 it had done 10k more miles than are currently showing one the clock. Not sure...
  13. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Anyone recommend a good Alfa-friendly wheel alignment gaff in Nottingham? Cheers
  14. East Midlands
    Dear All East Midlands AO'ers. Some help / advice please. The Myth has morphed into a student hack in Nottingham :rant: It will need it's first service in November ( had 2 oil / filters already ). Trying to get it back down 'sarth to one of our trusted Indies is a tad unlikely since it is...
  15. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Here's the video:- ‪MGC Servicing‬‏ - YouTube I'd jsut not heard anyone else talking about them, just alfatecnico. Seen a couple of bits about them on a different forum - all good things. These guys are lot closer to me.... They did have a website but it looks like they haven't paid their...

  17. Alfa GTA
    I've just been into town and parked in the Victoria Centre car park and in there was one of the nicest looking GTA's I have ever seen. In red and I didn't get the full reg but it was a private 'GTA' reg. Anyones on here? Its a real looker!!!
  18. Introduce Yourself
    Hello all. Ive been lurking on here for a couple of weeks since I picked up a 156 Sportwagon. Ive always wanted an Alfa (I can remember after passing my test at 18 and seeing a 155 with 145000 miles for sale wanting it and my dad basicly telling me no, mumbling something about electrics even...
