patience

  1. This car is starting to try my patience...

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    On Friday it broke down again. It had been running seemingly fine, temp gauge normal, fresh from MOT and service. I had also checked over things like coolant level, brake fluid etc last weekend. On the way home from work, it conked out, losing all power. The only warning light was the...
  2. Sorry if I am exhausting a few peoples patience...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    HI all, My GT 3.2 has the standard exhaust currently fitted, but I know there are better options more 'in tune' with the Busso engine's aural delight. (I had a Scorpion back box on my last GT which was definitely better). Whilst I have read a lot on here about Wizard exhausts I have also...
  3. 06 Brera. New steering rack?!!!! WTF! Im loosing patience!

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    After 7 years of trouble free motoring in my trusty 147, I opted for a Brera and o Boy do I regret it now! I bought the 56 reg Brera with 40tho on the clock and a full S/H so I thought I couldnt be going too far wrong. Its just not the car that the 147 was :((( Ive been forced to spend on...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    So my car is back and running better than ever, its line a new car (excluding the heave clutch and suspension bushes that are on there way out :lol:). BUT and this is why I think its starting to test my patience, there always seems to be a but! The cruise control is now not working. It has a...
  6. Testing my patience - V6 not firing

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    My car has broken down again and is unfortunately living up the stories of Alfa reliability. At least the turbo has gone in my Dads BMW to stop him being smug when the inevitable ‘I told you so’ line arrives! The first thing I did was check on here for advice, but there wasn’t anything...
  7. For the love of god... This car is trying my patience now..

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    With all the gip i've had recently, the alternator bearing now decides to fall over. My patience wears thin. How do i tell which of the two types i need without taking it off? I have to take the gearbox off again so its a double whammy jobby day! Please help. Or i'm going back to bmw!!! :)
  8. A Brera or patience?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I'm seriously contemplating the idea of getting a Brera (currently driving a 147 1.6)... My "dilema" is this: I'd be looking for a 2.2 (can't really justify the 3.2 economically, and don't want a diesel :p ) Budget wise (£12-£13k), I figure I'll be looking at something in the realms of an 06...
  9. Losing patience with my MOT

    Alfa 33, Sud & Sprint
    I was meant to be going to Brooklands and a local classic car show on Hayling Island where I live? I bought 3 tickets for Brookie - and didn't go, neither did my friends go Whatever you do you guys and girls - don't let family do your car mechanics. It's my brother-in-law. He's a bloody...
  10. The belief to have a cool head & the patience of a saint when it all goes wrong......

    Alfa 164 & 166
    The belief to have a cool head & the patience of a saint when it all goes wrong...... Fantastic. got my car back from the garage on Saturday after trying to work out this engine light business, my dealer mechanic showed me the data logger that he'd stuck on the car over the week. No errors...

  12. Patience is a virtue. :)

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Dear All... After years of excrutiating pain and watching how time goes by, without one of my most desirable objects since late 1997, the wait is finally over. Project was started in late 1997. :) Years and kilometres passed by, project was postponed from one year to another... but, two weeks...
