  1. Rear spring (possibly)

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    So after getting in from work yesterday to a large package sitting at my front door (Replacement bumper, slam panel, and off side light) I manhandled it into the house and went to put a coffee milk. So jumped in the car and drove round to the shop to pick up milk, on the way back a loud...
  2. 166 - Seat height adjustment stuck, possibly seized

    Alfa 164 & 166
    Has anyone come across this before? The lever on the side of the seats that is supposed to lift them up or lower them down is completely stuck on bother driver's and passenger's sides. They won't budge at all. They probably haven't been moved in a long time and I'm afraid if I force them that...
  3. Anyone recognise possibly the best alloys ever?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Thinking ahead to when the Mrs finally lets me buy another 159 - some stunning looking kits from Gevalto in the USA but these alloys are something else - anyone know what they are?
  4. 159 Ti TBI Sport Wagon For Sale... Possibly

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    After some deliberation I'm thinking of parting with my 159. Its a Ti Sport Wagon finished in stromboli Grey. Black leather interior. its a 2010 car on a 60 plate and has the later dark dash. It has the TBi engine which has been remapped and give approx 250bhp. It certainly moves. It also has...
  5. Help!!! Possibly tct fail ?!?

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi guys I have a 2012 1.4 tct multiair 170hp which has never let me down. 90k on the clock. Driving along this morning about 40 miles an hour and suddenly a high pitched noice and a clutch slip sensation (revs sped up quicker than car reacted). Slight whirring noise which almost sounded like a...
  6. Sounding out! Clarion silver radio and changer possibly for sale

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi everyone, I'm having a long think here about reducing my inventory of parts for the GTV - not least due to the space everything takes in my attic (!) - and toying with the idea of putting my Clarion silver cassette unit up for sale. I bought it some time back from another club member and it...
  7. GT JTDm oil cooler and pipes possibly for sale Or rusting sills advice??

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Due to the in pending death of my GT, I may have some brand new pipes and oil cooler for sale. I bought these last week but after a quote of £1200 to fix the rusting sills, hubby says it’s too much to spend on my 06 Alfa. I am absolutely gutted, like a death in the family. If this really...
  8. Ferodo discs for 147 - Possibly fake? - Urgent advice needed

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello everyone, I would really appreciate your advice on a set of rear and front disc rotors (Ferodo Premium Coat + their set of pads) I bought from ebay from the seller Autosessive online store with regards to the authenticity. The seller claimed 100% original parts with a year of warranty...
  9. Looking at a Mito ...... possibly

    Alfa MiTo
    Hi! :wavey: Looking to replace my current vehicle, and just trying to make sense of the trim levels and engine options. Ive liked the look of the Mito for a while, but don't see many about. It needs to be fun to drive and reliable. I've spotted a few adverts that tell me I can get an 11,12 or...
  10. Possibly a Coolant Air Lock?

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Evening Guy's, 2.0 JTS Phase 3 Changed the Water Pump, Thermostat and with new coolant, all parts from Alfaworkshop. Having run the engine with the expansion bottle cap off till the radiator fan cut in, unfortunately the temp keeps going over 90c and only cold air comes out of the vents. I...
  11. Possibly getting my first Alfa.

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi All. I've decided its time to get an Alfa, I've always liked them and have had my eye on a few. Originally I liked the Brera but after sitting in one I've had to rule it out as I'm a bit too big (imo), next up was the 159 but the sensible side of me is thinking a newer car maybe better...
  12. Possibly, just possibly.

    North East
    We've a notion of popping to St. Mary's in the morning, catch the sunrise over the lighthouse, a few photo's of the motor. However, sunrise is something stupid like 04:30. If any of you guys suffer from insomnia, we'll see you there.
  13. Possibly be Breaking my 1998 GTV

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    After a lot of electrical problems since i bought it i am now thinking of breaking it. Its a shame really as the engine is in good working order and so is the gearbox. If i get enough interest then it will be getting broken for parts
  14. Weird Noise (Possibly Turbo)

    Alfa Giulietta
    i dont know if the noise was there before and i just didn't notice it, but coming home today i put my foot down and as soon as the boost was coming on i could hear this fairly high pitch whistly noise coming from the left side of the car (RHD, noise heard from left ear), the noise also stays for...
  15. Could this possibly be the reason why my remote doesn't work?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    When I just got the car, it worked fine, and stopped working gradually about 10 days later. I replaced the battery but to no avail. Also, in the first few days of me buying the car, I took it to a car-electrician and he made me an anti-theft device sort of thing. He made me a hidden switch that...
  16. 17" Sienas possibly for sale.....

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Would there be any interest here? 17" Zender Sienas. Tyres 225 45 17 Vredestein Ultrac Cento. All 7mm+ (only about 2-3k miles on them) The wheels are round, not been repaired/welded and drive with zero wobbles. They are sprayed in silver Plastidip, which gives an acceptable finish, but...

    Alfa MiTo
    1.3JTDM 3 problems, possibly... - Now fault code P0089 - pressure on injector support Hi all I have a 2011 1.3JTDM Mito. I got it 2 years ago at 57,000 miles, it has now just done 100,000 miles. Other than general poor wiring, all has been well up until now. Issue 1 Over the last few months...
  18. Possibly changing to GQV, require valuation advice

    Alfa MiTo
    As per the thread title I am considering changing the MiTo for a Giulietta QV, depending on what the MiTo is actually worth. Due to the mods I don't think many places would take it part exchange, and any that would probably won't give me a lot for it. I'm looking for some idea of its value...
  19. Possibly Time For A New Mobile Phone

    The Technology Section
    As mentioned elsewhere my current mobile is possibly due for retirement, so it's time to consider it's replacement. I'm currently on a sim only 30 day contract with Meteor & I've no intention of signing up to a different provider so I'll probably be buying the phone outright. At the moment I...
  20. Possibly a common problem.

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hello all, Can anyone recommend a good battery for my 08 2.4 JTDM 159 please? Do I need to spend more than £50-£60? I'm getting the dreaded struggling-to-start, turning over problem and with it not getting any warmer any time soon, i thought it a good time to change the old battery! Thanks as...
