  1. Install powered folding door mirrors.

    Alfa MiTo
    Hi all, I am a Newbie on here and I'm hoping someone can help. I've searched the MiTo forum using 'mirrors', 'door mirrors' and 'powered mirrors'. Couldn't find anything. I'd like to replace my manual folding door mirrors with powered ones. Is this possible and has anyone done it? I have...
  2. Jet powered screen washers.........

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Unlike my GT which just dribbles my 156 appears to have a jet propelled windscreen washer which does a great job at washing the sunroof and rear window with a token spray on the intended windscreen. I've tried tinkering with them but to no avail, any ideas how best to redirect them a little...

  7. Solar powered trickle charger

    General Alfa Discussion
    I just wondered if anyone has used one with decent results? My experience of solar powered lights on the drive is that they're pretty lame, but if there's a decent charger anyone knows of, it'd be pretty handy for my GT which tends to sit for a while. Just want a trickle/maintaining charger.

  10. Under powered TS GTV

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Morning all. I have just met up with a guy this morning with the prospect of swapping my 1.8 156 for his 2.0 GTV phase 1. When driving it felt very under powered so much so that my 1.8 was clearly faster. I know of the normal things to check like the maf sensor but one thing i did notice was...

  15. Unleaded fuel in my Diesel Powered 159

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Yes I am muppet and here's my story: I have just aquired a three year old 159 1.9 JTDM lusso and yesterday I put about £1.75 worth of fuel of unleaded into the tank before I realised what I was doing (mitigating circumstances were that my last car was a 156 2.0 JTS). SO i panicked and asked the...
  16. High powered diesels....

    General Motoring Discussion
    I've never driven one. Are they as much fun as their performance on the road suggests? I always imagine too many gear changes and hassle keeping in the power band. Maybe I'm totally out of touch with modern cars. I could only have an auto I think but that would defeat the object to some extent...
  17. Gas powered MiTo

    Tuning & Upgrades
    I'm (still) thinking about taking the plunge, what with fuel prices rising as they are, and getting my MiTo converted to LPG (Gas). I appreciate that it will slightly lower the fuel economy and performance, but it will greatly lower the cost of fuel. So I just wanted to know what are the...

    Alfa 164 & 166
    I don't know if its available in the UK but here in Ireland Maxol sell's E85 (85% ethanol and 15% petrol) in certain filling stations. At this stage unleaded here costs around €1.35/liter but E85 is €0.98/liter :thumbs: In theory running on E85 should use about 30% more fuel so should just...
