  1. GT 3.2 time to give it up? - fishing for opinions

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello All New member here and I'm looking for a few opinions. I know I'm preaching to the converted, but I'd still value your opinions please. I've owned a red GT 3.2 for 4 years now and it's been trouble free until this year, but this year it's been really trying my patience. It's already...
  2. Alfa 155 1.6 opinions ?

    Alfa 155
    So i was lookingaround in my local classfields and noticed a black 155 widebody. It was like 400 paunds or something ( dont know what 1150 bulgarian leva converts to ). And it looks in very good shape. Paint is good and looks maintained but its a 1.6. My dad was like better get a 2.0 TS atleast...
  3. 18" Turbina Respray - Opinions please!

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi, I need to have my wheels refurbed at some point as each of them has some minor kerbing. They are 18" Turbinas, and have been resprayed in the past. I want to get them refurbed and resprayed in black (to match my launch edition front splitter and sideskirts which I need to get fitted)...
  4. Opinions on this CF spoiler from JC Sportline

    Alfa Giulia
    Hi all, I haven't stuck this down/fitted this yet but wanted anyone's opinion on how it looks. Car is a Stromboli Grey Giulia Veloce. I'm not convinced the backing tape would be enough to fit so would probably remove and fit with black Tigerseal to ensure a bit of flexibility in positioning...
  5. EGR, MAP, whining noise and check engine light, opinions welcome!

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi A couple days ago I cleaned my EGR and MAP sensor, as I had some time on my hands and have heard its a easy enough job to do on your own. Took em apart, cleaned them. MAP sensor was fully clogged, I sorted that out. (see image) Took off EGR, cleaned it. I noticed a couple of things: 1 -...
  6. GTA Import/CATC Opinions

    Alfa GTA
    Hi All, I am in the market for a 156 GTA SW and wanted to see what people thought about a couple of cars about at the moment. I have wanted one for the last 10 years on and off, we want to get one but with the aim of actually keeping it nice and keeping its value...........or it going up in...
  7. Busso 12v engine rebuild help - opinions needed!

    Alfa 75, RZ, SZ
    Since there are probably many people more experienced than me at engine rebuilding (I normally just drop in a replacement short or complete engine) I thought maybe someone could offer some opinions on this? It's a 3.0 12v Busso which has been standing for many, many years, generally it doesn't...
  8. Fast road pads; opinions please.

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi all, Following some hair raising-moments recently when braking during spirited, but not ridiculous, driving, I'm left wanting for just a little more bite and less fade. I know Ferodo DS2500 are good on V6 as had them mated to Alfaholics calipers on my previous car, but this is quite an...

    Alfa Giulia
    Hi All, Thanks everyone for the advices few weeks ago - I'm finally about to pull the trigger on a Veloce and I'm wonderig whether I should get the Alfa Connect. I know 400 euros is not a huge amount of money, especially compared to other things I did get (including the mandatory 19" wheels...
  11. Opinions on air filters

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi all A slightly unimportant topic you might say but I'm looking for opinions on airfilters for the 3.0 V6? I have used standard paper and also oiled Pipercross foam and wondering what the "dry" foam filter from Autodelta is like - anyone used one? It's a bit pricey at £54.... Or, do I just...
  12. Pre-owned Mito QV - owner opinions

    South Africa
    Hi all, an aspiring Alfisti here (been driving Fiats since 2001) I am considering buying a pre-owned 2014 MiTo QV, but I am hesitant w.r.t. reliability/parts costs with no maintenance or warranty left on it (also not at a known brand dealership). Currently driving an '08 Grande Punto, love the...

  15. Upgrade to a V8 opinions, please

    General Motoring Discussion
    So, I've always wanted to get a v8 coupe as a daily driver, I don't do many miles; always on the train. So my choices: Ford Mustang 5.0 Maserati GranTurismo 4.2 Jaguar XK 5.0 Driven all, all great cars; Mustang is the newest, Fords are 0% at the moment so great deal, warranty, all mod cons and...

  17. Engine de-greasing opinions?

    General Motoring Discussion
    Hi - As well as my lovely Giulietta I also have a Fiat Punto Grande (I know....) which I am using as a contractors train station car. A couple of months ago the injector popped which the garage who sold me the car repaired. There has always been a whiff of diesel smell since but I have only...

    Hey guys, looking at policy for covering the QF that I am waiting for (any day now hopefully)... So far my two cheapest options are Aviva direct - £711 (£850 excess, no claims bonus NOT protected, no hire car, no legal cover, no breakdown cover etc) Aviva "Distinct" - high value car insurance...
  19. Opinions please ..PH1 or PH2 seats ?

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I am sadly going to have to scrap one of my TS GTV's.. It's a ph1 with a very good black interior... Now I love the look of the momo ph2 seats in my V6 but am not a huge fan of the lack of support from them when driving in a spirited manner. I think my PH1 seats may well be a solution...
