As some of you may be aware I very sadly said goodbye to my Giulia Quadrifoglio recently after three and a bit rather troublesome months of ownership. This thread isn't to revisit those woes but instead is a response to a few requests at the time to give a perspective on the replacement car and...
I'm sure at some point I'll be looking into the Alfa Giulia, the question is would you buy one?
Now a bit of context, I've owned six Alfa's. 3X 156's, 1 X 159, 1 X Mito, 1 X Giulietta Cloverleaf, it's been a variable experience to say the least, I've had 156's that have lasted 240,000+ miles...
Hi all, I've always been a petrol head and think I've only ever owned a "normal" car in my life. Currently driving my second '04 MG ZT 260 V8 (the Mustang powered one). Decided that it has to go - it's just to brutal for my advanced years. So been looking at alternatives. Showed my wife a...

I’d rather be in an Alfa praying that I’ll get to church than be in church praying that I get an Alfa.
Everyone deserves a car like this once in their life. Like a bad mistress, you...
When I dropped off my V6 for a service at the Alfa Workshop I was given this little beauty of a P1 with 187K on the clock!
Despite not usually liking burgundy cars I think the colour really suits the GTV and the pepper pots wheels match the car nicely.
As a V6 owner I was surprised how much I...
I'm on the brink of entering the fold!! I'm about to get a small runaround and spending 1k on a car either gets me a 15 year old audi/focus bucket, or a 9/10 year old 147.
I have one big question which i need advice on, and will no doubt be lengthy in asking! Shall i ask here (as its...
I happened across this video just now
YouTube - Alfa Romeo 159 Review - AA Torque Show
of the AA Torque Show looking at the 159, and I know what you're thinking - "this should be in the 159 section" - but wait, there's a mention and a showing of a 156... so, see what you think :lol:
Following an essential Q2 upgrade (the gearbox has already been replaced once after diff exploded and punctured the gear housing at <15k), I was amazed at the GT's transformation. Following the above upgrade, the feel of the car has been transformed yet again. The Koni FSD \ Eibach combination...
Well I just spend two days in an Audi TT Roadster, equipped with the Audi variant of the Bose sound system, and you know what? I like the version in my car better :)
Much more natural, richer sound and less distortion at higher volume levels..
and for those who don't know, Bose costs about...
