  1. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Went to pick up my GTV today. Lovely example in red and drove spot on during the test drive, so I parted with my money and went on my way. Everything went fine for around 80 miles or so until the car refused to go into gear properly. Masssive judder in the clutch pedal and can hear the...

    I've got access to the 'tinternet by cable through a local provider. Plugged in tower PC with a modem - no wireless things. Somehow my neighbour has managed to link in to my cable network (I'm no specialist so I don't really know how to explain it or know the correct terms to use). He has a home...
  6. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I have seen some posts where people say that their fuel computer massively overestimates the mpg they are getting. Just checked mine after a full tank of fuel and the actual consumption was 42.6 mpg and the fuel computer was reading 42.8 mpg so thats an error of only 0.5%, very happy with that...

  12. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Just done a full tank to tank test and calculation. Used the same pump at the same station to make sure it was accurate! Breaks down like this: 55.9 litres equals 12.29 gallons. 537.9 miles from the tank. This equates to 43.7mpg over the tankful. The computer says 42.7mpg. The tankful was...
  13. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    You might have seen my thread a week or so back about choosing between a 3.2 and 2.4, and after trying both out I was thoroughly underwhelmed by the 3.2 and very impressed by the 2.4, even though the idea of an oil burning Alfa goes against all my beliefs! Since then I have been on the lookout...

    Hi guys, Id read a few things on here saying its hard work or not worth doing, but. I did it in around the 20 hour mark and its actually pretty simple to do. So I thought id write a list of what's needed to actually complete the job. 1. Manual box 2. The gear leaver and all the wires for...

    Why do Alfa bother making pretty cars, when Nissan seem to be making ugly work.
  16. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I'm talking pre-facelift models here, but I think the 156 in dark colours like Black (obviously) Rosso Red, etc really make them look good. Striking in fact :cool:. But when I see a light coloured one, say a Silver one, I just go "Meh..." Apologies to Silver 156 owners :o. I can't think of...

    Hey, I have my summer wheels 18" with 225.40.18 fitted. I was slightly reluctant to give that a go as many seem to speak about it being lousy comfort. But with my Eibach pro kit and stock dampers, 18" just gives me a lot bigger smile each time driving it. I don't think it's uncomfortable. I am...

    sorry to shame these hallowed grounds with such a beast, but my lancia Dedra (which like the 155 is basically a Fiat Tempra!) won't start. Having changed the battery, & she has new spark plugs (she's a 1.8 BTW) she still does nothing. Now she has sat around for a long time doing nothing, so like...
