  1. Long-Term Parking

    Alfa Giulia
    I was away for a week and parked the car at Gatwick North long-term parking. Previous to this my car has been parked in a garage and driven every day. So I feared the worse for no reason but it's an Alfa and it had been cold, wet and damp. No problem. Not only was my off-side plate...
  2. My first ever parking ticket

    General Motoring Discussion
    Poot. The car park was free if you stayed less than 90 minutes, but I failed to read further and see that in that circumstance you still needed to get a ticket from the machine. I have appealed on the grounds that I didn't realise, and I didn't stay longer than the 90 mins, and asked for...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    OK Parking sensors on my GT. I get no sound to say they are working, and seeing as I have never heard the sound it makes I do not know where the sound comes from either, I assumed, incorrectly, that it came through the stereo speakers and as the stereo doesnt work either then I thought that was...

  11. Parking sensor issues?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I've now got my retrofit parking sensors fitted and working. The passenger side front sensor seems to be giving ghost readings sometimes picking up objects that aren't there? Is this a known issue caused by anything in particular?
  12. no sound on parking sensors from back

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Do you have any idea why the sound for parking sensors does not work for the back? All the sensors are working. The screen shows me the distance to the obstacles, but the sound only works for the front sensors. if relevant, I own an 159 from 2006.

  18. Faulty Parking Brake

    Alfa Stelvio
    I recently had some fun and games with my Stelvio. The parking brake reported a fault just before I went on an errand. When I came back to the car I couldn't release the auto parking brake. In the end I had to call out Alfa Assist who managed to release it and followed me to Mangos in...

    Anyone happen to have a GT parking sensor they wish to sell? Or has anyone had succes in buying online and what did they go for price wise . There is someone in Lithuania selling a genuine but wants £39 plus postage just a tad much on a s/h one , I think.
