  1. Help, 1.9 159 broke down on Car Park

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Ignore this, it was the battery ... I was reading a post a few weeks ago about the steering lock ecu failing on a 159 and this morning I panicked and thought it was that as a flat battery would throw up VDU on the dash ... Anyway ... Move on

  3. TCT: Should car roll when in P (park)

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hello. When my Launch Edition TCT is sat with the engine running in Park mode, on a slight down incline or hill, should the vehicle still roll or should it act as a parking brake (using the diff I think) and not move at all? When sat at traffic lights on a slight downhill for example, when in...

  5. The Terminator, his assistant, a car park, and my Taxi

    General Motoring Discussion
    There’s a car park near me that has a ticket machine you need a Mensa qualification to operate. Luckily, it’s a problem child; being far too clever for its own good, its existential wallowing (‘am I a mere machine? A spurter of tickets? Or am I an unrecognised Time Lord? If only I knew!’)...

  9. Where to service now that Chatz Hyde Park isn't a dealer?

    South Africa
    Where does everyone get there 'in motorplan' service and repair work done these days?

I've been going there since 2004 and I'm at a bit of a loss as to where to go for my...

    Alfa MiTo

  11. Dry 166..?? Don't park uphill...

    Alfa 164 & 166
    I know leaky footwells are a common & tricky issue on the 166, but I found out yesterday definitely NOT to park mine on a slope with nose pointing upwards! Parked it overnight Thurs on our (admittedly) steep drive, next day loads of water in the passenger & rear LHS footwells after heavy rain...
