  1. Alfa Giulia
    OK I'll kick this off, let's have a post and celebrate just how amazing our car choice is. Here's my 4 months running list of comments:- 1) Young lad in car next to me at lights, window open shouts "Oi mate what car is that?" Me - It's an Alfa, Lad - "Is it new?" Me - Race mode blips throttle...
  2. General Alfa Discussion
    Last Saturday, myself and a friend set about changing the belts and spark plugs on my 166 TS, and belts, spark plugs and alternator on my 147 1.6 I was apprehensive as space looked very restricted in the 147 but once the auxiliary belt and covers came off, there was loads of room but not...
  3. Alfa Giulietta
    Okay - Ive spent most of my time on this forum complaining about one issue or another I have had on my car (Alfa Romeo Giulietta 1.6 JTDM 2011 Lusso) - I still do have the dreaded rear wiper issue that I need to claim under warranty for (suspected body computer.... but for once I am posting...
  4. South Africa
    Sorry it has taken so long... but a big thanks to G and the crew in Pretoria for solid service work on the GT. It's great to say you can take the car to a specialist and know it's in the best of hands. Now how many places in the world could you say that? Great to meet some more faces behind the...
  5. Alfa Giulietta
    I posted on this forum some time ago to say I had a poor experience with the Alfa Dealer who sold me the Guilietta in March but happy to report back on how they have more than made up for this in rectifying my complaint. After a few days of haggling over what would be suitable compensation...

  7. General Alfa Discussion
    Just wanted to highlight a couple of companies who have been helpful to me recently. Firstly, Jamie at Go Italia in Kent, really helpful Alfa and Fiat specialist who is happy to help with problems and whose labour fees are very reasonable - 01622 749282. :thumbs: Lipscomb in Aylesford, Kent...

  9. General Alfa Discussion
    Ok, to keep this short I'm going to leave out a lot of detail, but you will get the picture, easy enough. I have for some time been suffering all sorts of minor niggles, all of which seemed to be totally unrelated. So as my car was going in for a partial respray (with gratitude to Alfa Romeo...
  10. General Alfa Discussion
    Hey everyone Well, I have finally found a garage that I am very pleased with and trust. They aren't an Alfa specialist but do of course work on them happily, so if you live on the South Coast and are looking for an honest garage I can honestly recommend Cartech Ltd in Worthing. I had the...
  11. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider

Phoned my dealer early monday morning, told me to bring it down to them if possible or they could pick it, left it there monday afternoom. Phone tuesday morning, new alternator and battery fitted, £364 and...

    In praise of the offset number plate...... and crunch !!!!!! My drive is real steep, and you have to take a sharp right to line up on it............... I went down it today after clearing 40 tonnes of snow .............. Front end decided to take it's own route and CRUNCH !!!!! ...
  14. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Went to Goodwood breakfast club last Sunday, as I finished parking the Brera in the paddock area, as I lock up, some guy with an American accent approached me and start asking about the Pinifarina badge I put in the rear wing (a non standard item), and it turns out he owned a Brera 3.2 Q4 manual...
  15. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    after a long running bid to fix my 156 of various cutting out / no power etc i stumbled upon a very friendly and helpful company called Pro Alfa, theyre a new company but worth a look in my opinion. Just thought id let everyone know they seem pretty good at what they do.
  16. Alfa MiTo
    Recently I have seen so many threads on here complaining about problems and poor delaership and long wiating times. I don't want to brag but my dealer has been fantastic my car is ready for collection next week and only took 8 weeks and I would give nothing but praise, alfa have so far gone the...
  17. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    So, 13,500 miles in, what has my Blackline Q2 GT been like to live with? In essence, probably the best car I have ever owned - it hasn't missed beat! I took delivery in Jan 08 and being a fastidious type, then did my own "mods" which consisted of replacing the standard bulbs for decent PIAA...
  18. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Having been fortunate to own the latest and best of Alfa's V6 offerings over the last couple of years, I thought I would post a note of my experiences at this Easter time. I think most would agree the last incarnation of the Arese\ Busso\ "Bussone" engine makes the Alfa car, being its very heart...
  19. Adrian Flux Insurance
    Alright guys, evening - I'm hoping not to post yet another thread with how much insurance costs, but in this case thought Adrian Flux deserve a definite pat on the back! I'm 22, with 6 points for an IN10, a accident in 2006 and 2 years no claims. My renewal was over £700 TPFT, a gocompare...
