  7. picked up the brera today, loads of q's already!

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    ok, what a lovely drive home, 200+ effortless miles (3.2 V6 Q4) and a respectable 29 mpg using cruise control to stay legal! lol... loads of questions already though ... 1) there appears to be a hole where the USB socket should be.... maybe it has been pushed through somehow? its not there! 2)...
  8. Picked up a GTA SW SS

    Alfa GTA
    And it's made owning the GTA an even more sweeter experience. It's got Koni adjustables and the ride is markedly different from the Bilsteins on my saloon. Keeping it in City mode and just flooring it through the gears is a ******* blast and the Unicorse exhaust makes the downshifts outright...

    Alfa Giulietta
    First time Alfa owner today. Picked up a 11 plate Veloce 170 diesel in cosmos blue today, and first impressions are very very positive. I always look for the negative reviews, so I can keep an eye/listen out for them, before purchasing. My main concerns we're build quality/rattling and the...

  20. Picked up MiTo today!

    Introduce Yourself
    Hi guys Picked up my 2010 Alfa red Mito Lusso 135 today. She looks wicked and drives great. People who drive boring cars (almost every other make) do not know what they are missing.
