  1. First Peak Alfa Service - used 2012 MA 105 - follow up advice required

    Alfa MiTo
    Took the car last week for the first service I have ever done in my life on my used car. Very nice people, It cost 249 which included sorting one squeaky window and the other one is about to go so I'll be going back soon as it sounds horrendous. I think it may have been Roger (didn't get his...

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi All, Just back from an 1100 mile trip in the Spider twinnie. Our journey started on the Portsmouth to Santander ferry, where we stayed overnight before setting off for the Picos de Europa mountain range two and a half hours west of Santander. This beautiful place is a driver's paradise (seen...
  3. Peak Technology

    The Technology Section
    Sitting in an airport with nothing to do I start to wonder about things. One thing I notice is that nowadays every T,D & H are prodding their Tech gadgets like there's no tomorrow. 10 years ago a few road warriors had Palm Pilots, HPaqs or Psions. now it's big tablet/phones by the bucketful...
  4. Big Thanks to Peak Alfa

    Took my car for a service yesterday and it's running like new. Had a great morning out in Derbyshire. Can't recommend them highly enough and really well priced. Also the chance to have a look under the hood of a 147 GTA racer.

    Meets & Events Images
    Only one shot from me, left the Nikon at home so had to resort to HTC's finest. Lots of Red GTV's, Cups too. Nice trip out to my backyard as it were. Learned to drive in my Renault 5 in the twisties around North Cheshire and the Derbyshire Peak District.
  9. BGZ's Twin Peak Run

    North West
    Meet 10am. Lymm Services. Nothing to do with the cult 90s TV show. Widely regarded as one of the best driving roads in the UK, the A537/A54 Macclesfield to Buxton road aka The Cat & Fiddle road is on our doorstep but apparently has never been the subject of an official AONW event. Well we are...

Lymm to Lymm and takes in the Cat & Fiddle road two...
  11. 2.4 DPF removal and remap at Peak Alfa - what a difference!

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Two weeks ago I had the DPF removed and engine remapped at Peak Alfa. the DPF was 77% clogged up and resulted in lots of annoying lumpy/jerky driving. I have a 07 200bhp model 2.4 which was fitted from new with a Steinbauer P-Box, giving around 240bhp. Power delivery before visiting Peak Alfa...

  14. Good Friday Peak Run

  16. Peak mass air flow rate and other values

    Alfa GTA
    With the intake mods my car has I thought it might be a good idea to log things like intake temperature and mass air flow rate in order to compare it to a standard setup. Today I went out for a quick test and found that with the ambient temperature at about 16°C and the sun shining my intake...

  20. 2.4 JTDm peak power

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I need a techie to explain this one to me. The main thing I didn't like about the Lusso 2.4 I took out was the late power delivery. Below 2k it was very very poor and then the power came at a rush. When I ordered the Ti I saw on the AR website that the new 210bhp version got its peak output at...
