  1. MOT Pass Rates

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Found this on the bbc site, its the MOT pass/fail stats for all cars during 2007. Thankfully Alfas come high up the list alphabetically (if not for reliability!) (or should that be alfabetically!) so you don't have to scroll down much...

  3. Puzzled yet pleased.. mot pass (nearly) guidance needed

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Morning all, i've had some great news and some puzzling news re my mot. Straight through barring 2 bulbs and a corroded brake hose which is an absolute result.

  4. Air con leak/wet pass footwell

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    My passenger footwell carpet gets soaking wet when I use the air con/heater. I have managed to trace it to some sort of leak behind the centre console, just above the footwell, under the dash (hope that makes sense). There is a sponge type thing that is soaked but I don't know what to do next...

    Alfa 164 & 166

  6. Will my tyres pass the MOT?

    Alfa GTA
    MOT is booked for Thursday, and I'm currently looking into replacing the fronts. Except I was a bit lazy when I checked them and decided they needed changing - only checked the drivers side, which had a little bit over the TWI. Just checked the4 passenger side, and it's basically right ON the...

    General Alfa Discussion
    Does it get any better than that?:thumbs: I took a trip over the lakes in Alfie on saturday. The weather was excellent and Alfie was behaving beautifully. On the way back I decided to take a look over Kirkstone pass and what a reward it was :wow: I've driven it a lot of times in many different...

    Republic of Ireland
    Heya all, Myself and theredx19 where talking last night about staying over the night before instead of having a long drive day like we did the last meet.

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Apologies for he long post, but you can never have too much information. I hoovered the car last week and noticed very wet passenger footwell carpet under my rubber mat which was concealing the problem nicely. Anyway, I removed the plastic sill cover, the passenger seat, the cladding...
  19. Do Alfas have to pass a reliabilty test?

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi, i have recently been speaking to my uncle who has a friend who is an alfa romeo test driver, i.e he takes out all the new alfas and sees if there are any kinks with them etc, and he pretty much said he would never buy an alfa as the build quality is just THAT bad. My question is do alfas...

    Hey Up, How are you all? Just some quick advice needed please. Someone's nicked me 'J' off me 2.4 'TD. So I think, come light of day, i'll de badge me 156. Anyone got any advice on the best solvent type stuff to use to remove the sticky foam stuff? Or should I use that rare, hard to find...
