    I bought this GTA in May 2021 as it reminded me of my first 156 I bought and saved for.....but this was the proper one ! A beaut of an engine and the perfect colour. A polish and wax later, now the paint really shines. I now need to sell and am giving the community an early heads up before...

    Hi All, Just curious really, what do you all think about using diesel additives vs using premium fuel or using both or is that likely to be counterproductive? Cheers

    Morning All, I love starting debates about things. So I am curious. Has anyone ever noticed or recorded either an increase in MPG, HP, or Engine Smoothness? Thanks :D

    I have just received the renewal invitation from my broker Chris Knott and have been shocked by the increase of £84 for my 147 1.6. That is an increase of almost one quarter!

    My tantelisingly close Quadrifoglio Verde will be my third car, and my first remotely in its sort of power range. The following is from the QV supplement, and being half-scottish I'd be keen to hear what the reality of premium economy is versus plain old 95 in the QV or comparable engines. If...

    Interesting read about using premium petrol when filling the motor; Premium Petrol I have to say that I don't use premium petrol in my car and I never have to be honest but I have always thought, and been told, that it was better as it would perform better than standard fuel :confused:

    Not sure if this is the right forum. If decreed otherwise maybe the mods can move it because the only area I see might be "Rant" Just wondering if anyone has experience good bad of halliwell Jones or their Non franchise division Premium Trade Cars. I have given deposit details and agreed a...
  8. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Right, I'm going to nip this in the bud before it starts: I've got 4 acceleras on my Brera and the front 2 now need replacing. Since there's such a raging debate on tyres on here, I thought I'd invest in some "premium" tyres and see if I can feel the difference myself. So please, no posts on...

    Hi chaps/chapesses/like-minded Alfisti, First thing I should do is offer a bit of an introduction to myself. I'm Sam, a freelance motoring writer from Sheffield, and my current daily is from the other AR stable - Austin-Rover. The Montego's going nowhere and will stay as a cherished toy, but...

    Went to insure the old Merc last night. We have 4 cars, 2 with A/F, one with Autonet and last night got prices for the Merc. Cheapest was £198.00 with Chaucer direct, A/F wanted £260.00 and Direct line wanted £708.00!!!!!!!!!!! No wonder their ad says "we're not on comparison sites", I can now...

    Guys, I'd really like a 159 TI Sportwagon and was wondering if the TI is worth the extra that I will have to pay for it? Or should I just got for a cheaper standard Sportwagon? Many thanks.

    Report: Budget Tyres Could Kill, But at Least They?re Quiet Read the response from the Ovation representative which is resonably fair given how Whatcar? slanted their review!! I have had mid priced tyres.. Falkens, Nexen, Rainsport etc. all along (given how much premium brands cost!) and...

    Does anyone out there think that Launch Edition cars may sell for a premium over the list price when they come onto the market in December/January? I gather that only 60 are coming to the UK and that dealers were seriously over-subscribed.

    Something that will suprise nobody here is the news that real world mpg figures bear little resemblance to the official numbers. It will be even less of a surprise that it is apparently getting worse as premium manufacturers BMW and Audi are cited as worst offenders for manipulating the now 30...

    I've recently done a brim to brim check on BP ULTIMATE DIESEL against standard diesel , well back in October anyway . The difference turned out to be nothing noticed in performance but a slight rise in mpg of 1.5mpg . This was at the cost of an extra 7p per litre . Cetane claimed of 55. I'm...

    Insurance companies appear to have closed the "loophole" of increasing peoples premiums who have been caught speeding but AREN'T convicted since they chose speedawareness instead.. BBC News - Car insurers start penalising speed awareness courses

    What is everyone's thoughts about the likes of V Power, BP Ultimate and Momentum 99? For the last 2 months I have only been filling up with the above, from what I can gather, my Spider is not a fan of the Momentum 99, seems to judder at very low revs when cold, unlike the other fuels...

    Hi THis is my first post. I just picked up my Giulietta 1.4 TB MA TCT with Premium and sports pack from a dealer in Brisbane Australia. I was surprised my car dont have the AFS and the headlights were yellow as the sun when I parked it beside my RR Evoque's Xenons.The RH headlamp assembly has...
