  1. Brera headlight beam pattern

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    So my brera went for its MOT retest today and it seems to have lost the beam pattern on the drivers side headlight. I’ve double checked the bulb fitment, it’s definitely in the correct orientation. What could be causing the loss of beam pattern? Anyone got any ideas on a fix? I’m hoping...

    Hi All, This is my first post here. I'd like to start with saying, thanks for the moderators to make this forum what it is. I've now done 95.000 km on my Giulia 2017. I love everything about it. Now it has been brought to my attention that my left Xenon is shining high and is blinding to...
  3. Xenon beam pattern

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi guys, my xenon beam pattern seams all off to me, I can only see my side of the road when driving at night and nothing on the opposite side. It seems as though my beams are pointed to the left. I tried adjusting the driver's side one to point more straight but the 6mm hex key didn't do...

  5. Xenon Beam Pattern

    Alfa Giulietta
    I have noticed recently that my Xenon headlights appear to light up road signs on the left much more than other road users and wondered if my beam pattern needs adjusted. The two flicks on my beam pattern appear to cross over each other and make one raised block on the left of the beam as...

  9. AFM replacement. Genuine or pattern?

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I am experiencing poor performance when accelerating. Diagnostics does not report any errors. The car runs much better when I disconnect the AFM, which points to it being duff. I shall give it a clean before investing in a new one as they are not cheap. I am not sure whether to replace it with...

  16. Xenon beam pattern

    Alfa MiTo
    For those with xenon lights on right-hand drive cars, what's the beam pattern like? Is it supposed to reach closer on the left and extend further on the right?

  19. Wishbones - genuine or pattern?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    My wife's 156 is coming up to 90K now and I'm pretty certain is on its original bushes. They're knocking and squeaking their brains out, so I guess it's time to bite the bullet and change them all! On her last 156, I bought pattern ones. The top ones were "Distributed by Sachs Handel" and...
