    Hi I replaced the front breaks and pads on my 2.0 TS (Phase 2 year 2000) yesterday. Went for a spin around the block less than a mile and the disk wear in was as in the first attached photo. On the outside on both sides to my surprise a 10 to 15 mm section nearest the hub the protective...
  11. After a long period of fun, some tears :(

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    97 GTV twinny, just wont run without a foot on the gas pedal. It wont start without it also, it appears to be some sort of fuel starvation however with the gas pedal depressed it runs and will drive normally. As soon as I take my foot off the engine forgets it has an idle point and stops. Has...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    We've just had the ultimate holiday experience in the 147 - broke down both on Xmas Eve and then again on the way to my family on Xmas day. The first breakdown on Xmas Eve seemed to be battery-related - my wife got "EBD ABS and ASR system failure" on the dash, and was completely unable to...
  13. Warranty period

    Alfa MiTo
    HI all, Just out of curiosity what is the warranty period on the MITO from new. I got mine from a non ***** dealer and I knew more about the car than the salesman cos I read up on it firstly on here. It just occurred to me last night that I took out an extended warranty when he told me it was up...
  14. Honeymoon period over

    Alfa MiTo
    Hey all, Now i have had my MITO for about 6 months, i thought id share some of my thoughts on my car. Some people may not agree, but these are my opinions. Firstly - Start/Stop is Annoying at best, and if anything causes me to stall the car. Which is just embarracing. Maybe its my driving -...

  17. Giulietta 1000 mile run-in period

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi Guys When I collected my G I asked about running the car in and was told by the dealer that there was no need to worry about this as the on-board computer takes care of everything for the first 1000 miles. My initial thought was that the car must be running in a slightly restricted mode...
  18. mito engine run-in period

    Alfa MiTo
    Hi Peeps, I have ordered a Veloce 135BHP TCT mito and when we went for a test drive the dealer told me i really have to drive the car like an idiot and push it to its limits for the first thousand miles so that the ECU can learn my driving style. Now, having read the thread about the power...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Oh yes! It had to be asked at some point! So looks like, from the (French) manual I have, that it's a 32K km service with a car decided oil change. No mention of any dates. Did I understand correctly?

    hi guys, looking at possibly getting a mito very soon, test drove the 135bhp version today and the dealer was telling me that for the first 1000 miles the car is limited to about 80% of its normal power, is this true or salesman bull****? thanks guys, i tried to search but couldn't find...
