  1. General Alfa Discussion
    On the latest copy of Eper that I have access to I notice that the number of models listed has been reduced from 19 to just 10. The models now covered are: Mito Giulietta 159 Brera Nuova Spider (2006>) 147 166 156 GTV (98>) GT Not even any mention of 916 Spider, which seems a little odd. The...

    Been browsing around the web and i came across the naamsa website, they recomend the octane fuel you should use for your car at what levels in the country BUT more importantly, they also show you how much you need to retard or advance the timing for places like the coast where there is only 95...

  4. Alfa MiTo
    Hi All, I understand that the newer 135 Mito's have a Koni suspension setup that is much better than the old setup and deals with the crashy ride? Is it possible to retro fit the new suspension to an older Mito 135 (10 plate?). Is it just new shocks or has something elso been changed in the...

  6. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Not sure if it's been posted on here yet (in which case I hate to be the bearer of bad tidings), but it would appear that only the latest generations of Alfa models will cope with the increasing levels of bioethanol that will coming to our pumps: PistonHeads Headlines - Biofuel compatibility I...

  8. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I just purchased an old 2.5 V6 156, with the older dash configuration, and am looking to fit a new stereo. I was wondering if any of you guys have any recommendations? BTW it must be all black, with orange/red backlighting (I'm a perfectionist:lol:) i also heard somewhere that the CD player...

    There's always NO ONE in YOUR area that's willing to work on them, I'll pay people money, that's not the issue, the issue is people don't want to work on the car or they don't know what they are doing. I drove the car last night, after buying a freakin R707 batery:rant:. I had a smile on my...

  11. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hello all, I'd be grateful for some advice, but first a lengthy preamble. My 159 2.4 will come to the end of its three-year lease in June. My choices are: 1. Re-lease the existing car at its depreciated value and save on the fortnightly repayments. 2. Get another 159. 3. Get another marque...
  12. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hello, I am off to look at a Brera this afternoon, but speaking to the garage apparently the previous owner was an older driver. It will come with a warranty of course, but is there anything particular I should look out for? It's a 2.4 diesel, the concern is that it has been driven at 30mph...

  14. 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...

    On my way up the A1 I stopped at an American diner for lunch only to see this Alfa - took a picture next to my 166- anyone know what model it is - nice colour!

  17. Introduce Yourself
    Hi all! Just thought I'd help raise the average age a lttle. Who said own an Alfa before you die? We'll see if a ten-year-old 156 2.5 jtd Sportwagon accelerates the demise of this pensioner! I work part-time at Beaulieu where we had, until recently a gorgeous 1930 6c Testafista; and for the...

    We've recently acquired a lovely Beast from a friend. Years ago we had a 33 Sportwagon, and then we acquired two 2Lt 164s, one for each of us. We've been away for ages and yearning to return to the fold........now, at last, we can hold our heads high again. I haven't stopped smiling since...
