    The Technology Section
    We have a Canon PIXMA MG2550s Lately the black and white cartridge been running low and patchy quality ...then via Google found out I could use the colour cartridge to produce black and white print outs. Got me to thinking.....why bother with the black and white cartridge when I can get what I...
  2. Harman Kardon, Seats, Steering Wheel and other options

    Alfa Giulia
    Hi all, I've been saving manfully for the last year and will be looking into a QV in March when the MOT on my old banger expires. I've currently narrowed down the search to post MY18 cars as I want Carplay, but the other 3 options I'm unsure about. I've had a couple of test drives and haven't...
  3. Exhaust Options 105 Spider

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    My Spider has blown a baffle somewhere in the exhaust, so I am contemplating putting a new system in. As far as I can see there are three main options: 1, An IMASAF syatem from classic alfa for about £200. I have used IMASAF before on my 166 and 156 cars and they are pretty good (although the...
  4. Car hit while parked on street - need help weighing up options

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    My girlfriends 147 was hit by a car last night. She had left it parked outside our house, on the curb (not on the road at all, parked up on a big bit of grass, but directly next to the road). She was getting in it to go to work today and the windscreen is smashed, 30cm scratch on the bonnet...
  5. Car configurator - only 120HP options

    Alfa Giulietta
    We all do it - configure the car we can't afford. Both alfaromeo uk and it websites only offer 120hp for petrol and diesel G's. A sign of something, or just a crud website? No pdf brochures to download - they want my first name, last name, sex, email, consent to marketing activities, consent...
  6. UK options questions on Guilia QV (Alarm, Rear sensors, Connected Services, HK Audio)

    Alfa Giulia
    First post so am wearing flameproof overalls. :-) Probably UK specific... I am thinking about ordering a Guilia QV but a little confused on the options in the UK configurator: The rear parking sensors are available as an option at £176 but are elsewhere presented as front/rear std. Any idea...
  7. Spare tire/tyre options?

    General Motoring Discussion
    This topic has been covered elsewhere but I wanted to get some feedback on two alternative spare tires/tyres for our vehicles. Mine is a Stelvio but it does not matter since these options are after market. Any experience with Road Hero spare tires/tyres...
  8. Pre-face lift 3.0 166 exhaust options

    Alfa 164 & 166
    I own one of the above, with a CF3 engine, which I believe has much catalyst action. I am looking to reduce the level of catalytic activity as a means to releasing horses, and/or look at other options for a more free-flowing exhaust. So, if anyone has a second hand Ragazzon or Wizard or other...
  9. GT 3.2 inactive EQ and 'Loudness' options in audio setup

    Alfa GTA
    Hi! When I go into "Audio setup" on my Connect Nav+ I cannot change the 'Loudness', 'Equalizer' and 'Equal.Man' settings - they are all greyed out (picture attached). Is it normal? Is it possible to activate those settings? I couldn't find any info about that. My car is a 2004 GT 3.2 with Bose...
  10. Current suspension options, FSDs no longer available

    Alfa MiTo
    Its about time to change my 1.4tb (155bhp) shocks. FSDs have been discontinued and the replacement to FSDs, Special Active, are not being made for the Mito. The Alfa equivalent from later model 135bhp Mitos will set me back £400 odd ish. Whats the current most comfortable option? Currently...
  11. Subframe Options?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I changed the oil on my 2004 GT 1.9 JTD yesterday. I was shocked to see how rusty the subframe has become, I'm sure it wasn't anywhere near that bad last year! I've spent a lot on the car over the last couple of years and it's still a nice looking thing that I enjoy driving. I'm reluctant to...
  12. Autodelta Brake Upgrade Options

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    My V6 needs discs & pads on all corners. I notice that Autodelta sell cross drilled front disks - they claim "up to 40% reduced stopping distance" @ £288. Does anyone have views on these?
  13. 3.2 v6 Engine rebuild options.

    Alfa GTA
    Hi Folks, I strongly suspect the head gasket has finally thrown in the towel on my GT V6. 2 years ago I did a compression test and noted that the rear bank had good compression but took much longer to build compared to the front bank. 6 months ago I started to notice the classic gunk in the...
  14. 159 2.4 TI Saloon 57 210ps Faulty Engine ECU, options?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    As above, what options are now available? Can a second hand one be reprogrammed for my car? Are new ones available? symptoms car was idling up to temp for 30 mins and waiting for fan to come on, engine stopped, no error on dash, not able to connect to engine ECU, fuel pump not priming when...
  15. New Giulia - color options

    Alfa Giulia
    Hi there. I'm looking into getting myself a Giulia, I have a pretty good idea of what I want (sadly the QV is a bit of a stretch budget-wise). It'll be a pretty well equipped petrol, but still a bit of a coin-toss between a Veloce or Sprint with a visit to Squadra afterwards (not a budget...
  16. Options to add at order and retro fit

    Alfa Giulia
    As stated in a previous thread ive been looking to get into a veloce, with some difficulty, finally had some success through drive the deal. 8.5k discount so im pretty happy, though they cant confirm my factory order until next week when apparently the MY19 changes are to be confirmed. few...
  17. Suspension options

    Alfa 145 & 146
    My suspension is a bit long in the tooth. It has Bilsteins and Eibachs on there, but from the pile of receipts I have with the car, they are 11 years old. It does sit a bit low for me and is really rough on our rubbish roads. What do others fit? Any suggestions? It's a 1.6 TS (with lightened...
  18. Exhaust options

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    having owned my first v6 for three years and having a sports exhaust on it all the time. i was pleasantly impressed by the roar and induction noise of a standard exhaust on my new ph2. the first started life with me with a rear quicksilver section losing the boxes. then i had a custom one made...
  19. Seat options..

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Been wondering about this for a while so here goes.. I have anthricite cloth on my Spider, which although doesn't look too bad it's not leather. However, they are fairly supportive and I gather from folks around here the P2 leather ones are not too good on that front. If I wanted to upgrade...
  20. v6 Clutch options

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hey, Ive just got myself a new toy in a ph2 GTV v6, but it needs a bit of work doing :rolleyes: First on the list is a new clutch as the existing one is just wrecked. On idle the pedal vibrates like crazy, the bite is bouncy, and the slip in 5th at full throttle is rather poor. Other than...
