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...
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...
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
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...
Car passed its MOT on Wednesday (Had a issue with the left hand upper wish bone ball joint knackered)
Car is a 159 1.9 EGR intact and DPF also intact.Was fine
Was ordered to get the part above replaced so ordered for shop4parts got delivered and fitted the next day (i personally know the...
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) https://www.dipetane.com/
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 ����
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...
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...
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...
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.
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...
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.
