  1. Mito - older car - better spec?

    Alfa MiTo
    After a year with my current Mito multi 1.4105 (2012), while I like it, I've always been a bit unhappy with the power of the car, and really wished I had gone for 135/155. I am in a dreaded PCP but wonder how it looks if I approach another dealer as I would want an older (maybe 2009 onwards)...
  2. Installing 2017 Grille update on older Giuliettas

    Alfa Giulietta
    Im wondering what people think of installing the new 2017 grille on older cars. It looks so much better with this installed but Im thinking the whole front bumper bar and panel would have to...

  4. New G Veloce or older Cloverleaf

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi all New to this forum, but wanted your opinions. I have always felt that everyone should own at least one Alfa in their lives. Now, I really would like a 4C, but am struggling to justify a small 2 seater. This pushed me on to a G 1.75 as a compromise and as a non 'run of the mill' car, so...
  5. 'Older' Alfa guys - do you look down on the Giulietta?

    South Africa
    Hi guys The question is in the title. In alfa's long history of producing cars, do you think the G is truly representative of the brand and what it stands for, or do you feel like it was made without the true essence of alfa being kept in mind? Here's why i ask - the g (and the mito for that...

  8. Older TMC tuning box review and advice!

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT

  10. Has anyone got an older 147 GTA than me?

    Alfa GTA
    Dear fellow GTA owners According to ePer, my 147 GTA was built in November 2002 and put on the road on the 9th of January 2003 which makes her 12 years old since production. Does anyone have a 147 GTA that is even older? In my opinion, the old shed still has it in the looks department even...
  11. 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...
  12. 1.9Jtdm: Replace plastic inlet manifold with older aluminium one

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi, Anyone know if its possible to swap the newer plastic inlet manifold on a 1.9 16v Jtdm with the more commonly available aluminium manifold? It seems the only difference is the actuator electrical connector. The later (plastic manifold) with integral swirl valves and actuator one has 6 pins...
  13. Anyone looking for iPod connection for an older Mitos without Blue&me/USB?

    Alfa MiTo
    Picking up my new Giulietta this Sunday so selling my iPod connection kit that I brought new in 2011 when I brought the car. If you have a older Mito that doesn't have blue & me then this is ideal to get ipod music connectivity and charging. Just though I'd post here before putting it on ebay...

  19. Financing an older Alfa or a classic

    South Africa
    I'm keen on another 916 Spider in very good nick but its a 2000 model and the seller wants R95k (more than i have in cash) Banks only do finance for cars 8-10yrs old so it appears that option is out. I'm also not very keen on a personal loan (much higher interest rates, and limits my options...
