  1. Alfa Giulietta
    Got back from AROC Yorkshire's Newby Hall gathering around 16.30 yesterday to find the Giulietta on the drive covered with a few birdy splats. We have seagulls, jackdaws and pigeons dumping in our neighbourhood. I resolved to clean them off today. I needed stepladders and copious dollops of AG...

    Finally moved into our new house after 6 months of hell, and absolutely love it..............apart from the constant and endless crapping of birds on my matt magnesio GQV. It is bringing out my inner OCD big time. The previous owners used to feed the local birds 3 times a day, and as such our...
  3. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Time to get out of Grande Punto 1.9 ownership and back to an Alfa (I had the last one for 13 years from new and 160k miles with only 2 very minor hiccups - a 1996 145 'leaf) but I suspect I might be in for the long haul looking for this one.... I'm looking for a 2.4 Sportwagon manual, Q4 (stop...

    I made the mistake of parking under some trees the other day and came back to see my roof coated with bird crap. Unfortunately, i was at work so the stuff was well and truly dried on and had turned into something akin to Roman concrete. I've tried leaving wet Spontex sponges on the poo to wet...

  12. Car Detailing
    Hi all, This has probably been posted elsewhere, but the GT (Alfa Red) has been bombarded with that evil black bird mess recently whilst I've been at work, and whilst I've attended to it as quickly as I can by soaking it off when I get home, it's left the inevitable blemish afterwards. The...

  14. Alfa 164 & 166
    Hello there. My 166 gearbox is nearly toast. It's a 2.0 TS facelift with the 6 speed manual pull-up reverse box. Had the syncros replaced when I bought it and they really screwed it up. Warranty period's over and it's getting stiffer and more like a bag of spanners by the day. Not sure if I'll...

Basically, I normally wash the car at work when it's grubby, or when anything from above lands on it - however, day before yesterday, I lost my car keys on the forecourt and by the time I found them, was far too tired, cold and grumpy to...
