  1. Alfa 164 & 166
    Took the 166 in for its MoT yesterday - which it passed, with a couple of advisories. One of which was that the nearside ball joint boot is damaged... which is on the lower arm that was replaced no more than a month ago... Now - I bought this part new (an expensive OEM item) intending to fit...
  2. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Guys, Good news to share ! My 916 TS Spider passed its MOT today with only an advisory on the front exhaust starting leaking. I'll look to replace that bit it as its still the original exhaust from new and car is a 2002 phase 2, so its done its job well. Can anybody tell me what the OEM code...
  3. Alfa 164 & 166
    Another ticket for another year. Only 1 advisory - rubber beginning to perish on O/S front lower ball. Then the inspector drove it past the front of the building and it made me smile - sad or proud -? :D
  4. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Not mine but my brother's DPF on his 1.9 JTDm 159 was constantly regenerating and throwing up warning after warning. He was panicking a bit as his mot was due last Friday. So the prevoius weekend we removed it and I took it to work to see if I could actually clean it the same way we do DPF...

  6. Alfa 164 & 166
    Car passed NCT (ROI MOT equivalent) with just age advisories on tyres. Handbrake cables a smidge uneven, emissions very good (80 mls of Dipethane into petrol tank with €40 of fresh petrol to wash it down) Very happy bunny!

    ...she needs new floorpans and sills. Anyone want to buy a Spider? Only joking: you'd have to yank the keys from my cold, dead fingers. So she's going in for resto over this winter ����

    Just realised, it's been 20 (!) years since I bought my GTV6. So here's a pic (of a pic, of a pic). Looks at GTV, looks at Taxi, slaps head, weeps and wonders where it all went so wrong :-)))))
  9. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Howdy Folks, My Ph2 GTV V6 has just got another years ticket :bandit: but there were a few items to think about..... The offside parking brake was only just within limits. So I guess it is either refurbish or replace the calliper. Does anyone have a suggestion for where to buy a new/second...
  10. Alfa 75, RZ, SZ
    Hi all, A happy 75 owner. She sailed through her MOT and is re-taxed for the summer. Even the handbrake worked properly! Going really well at the moment. Long may it continue. A little bit of cheer after someone pulled out of a side road and into the side of my Alfa 156 which was in show...
  11. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Just thought id share this i have another year MOt and no advisories either:thumbu p:
  12. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, Thought I'd share this with you. My beloved 156 1.8 T Spark Veloce passed its MOT with flying colours last week. The MOT tester said that it was the best Alfa (of its era) that he'd seen. Completely solid, rust free and in stunning condition. Which it is! I've had the car about a year...
  13. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    I took my Brera for her mot on saturday,passed with flying colours,no advisories. Now,just have to get the OBD socket sorted.:thumbup:
  14. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Great feeling. Alfa GT 19 TD. Third MOT straight through. 151,000 miles. What a motor!
  15. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Just wanted to share that my soon-to-be-going GT passed it's MOT, needing no more than a new tyre, and with only one advisory (again for a tyre). The bodywork may have seen better days and the electrics are inconsistent, but mechanically it's top notch - even on 189,000 miles. Hopefully my...

    Not sure why Alfas get such bad press. Never had a problem with either of my Alfas going for an MOT. True there was a couple of advisories, but given the car is 13 years old that's not bad.
  17. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    See attached :jester: My other Spider is at 98.5k, so is also nearing a significant milestone! :cool: How many miles/kms have you done in a Spider/ GTV (not just one car)? My tally is: Blue V6 Spider - 140k - 2001 to 2008 Yellow V6 Spider - 55k - 2010 to date Silver TS Spider - 20k - 2011 to...
  18. Alfa 145 & 146
    My 146 ti passed it's MOT today with no advisories. With luck it should see it's 20th birthday next year and a few jobs over the summer to keep her happy smile.gif
  19. Alfa 164 & 166
    ...I'm treating my old car to a new clutch. Any tips for getting the starter motor off a 2.5?
  20. Alfa 145 & 146
    just MOTed my TS 146. no advisories. and only with the center spark plugs connected. apparently no issues on power or emissions???!!! would be interesting to make some dyno with all spark plugs connected vs only center ones.
