  1. Sept 2001 V6 Spider �555 per year tax. Ouch!

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Sept 2001 V6 Spider £555 per year tax. Ouch! I have been looking at cars but I am pretty disgusted by this road tax rate. I pay £290 per year for my Giulia Quadrifoglio FFS. (Registered 24th March 17 just before the recent April 2017 increase) And £255 per year for my 1996 TVR Griffith 500...

  5. Captive Nuts (ouch)

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    I am looking to replace the seats in my 1970 GT Junior with ones from a unifacto model. The problem is that the captive nut holding the drivers seats front left rail has come adrift. Removing it is no problem but refixing the seat is taxing me somewhat. Has anybody come across this problem and...
  6. Ouch, bit of a big bill

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I was almost tempted to sell her, but barring a lottery win I just couldn't think of any other car I'd want. The potential buyer asked me some questions about the Cam belt and suspension, which then prompted me to have a better look at my docs and turn my stereo down and have a good...
  7. Ouch! New gearbox needed.

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Driving along the M25 last week and 5th gear just disappeared. Thought it might be the nut that holds 5th gear in place had come loose and took it to Rusper Alfa trying to stay optimistic. Just got the call from the garage. 5th gear knackered. Loads of play in the auxiliary and main shafts...
  8. Ouch

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Just got my 2.0jtdm 159TI back from the workshop, Water pump siezed , stripped belt and took out all the rockers, 40.000 miles, still, didn't lose any valves, something to be thankful for I suppose.
  9. Ouch! Bodyshop needed South East

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi all My poor old GTV seems to be a magnet for fools! Couple of years ago a numpty drove into it in Chamonix, a more local fool then scuffed it outside the house and now another local fool let their Smart car run into it when the handbrake failed to hold it. So, could anyone recommend a...

  12. Ouch! but lucky escape...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Today I hate narrow country lanes, drivers who come round corners on the wrong side of the lane :mad: and trees that get in the way. But all things considered it could have been worse. All I got was a smashed up front wing and wing mirror. I already had a spare wing mirror and Autolusso will be...

  14. GT JTM Oil Cooler - Ouch!

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Had a trip down to brighton and back at the weekend (630 miles on one tank of fuel). The next day I moved the car and found a horrendous mess of oil drips underneath. I got the car up on the jack and found the oil was leaking from the oil cooler. I topped up the diminished oil and drove it in...

  18. JD Power 2013 result - ouch

    Alfa Giulietta
    JD Power survey 2013 - Small family cars - What Car? Not good. Odd that the listed complaints are hardly what anyone here is complaining about. AR is the second lowest of any manufacturer in the whole survey. Mind you there is only just over a 10% spread between AR in 26th place and Jaguar at...
  19. Ouch, that really smarts

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    On the way to work today, heavy traffic, swopped lanes and pulled in behind a works van with a cherry picker on the back. Don't know how, must of been focussing on the back of the van and not the extra metre of the cherry picker but I bumped the back. It felt like nothing, I was only doing a...
