  2. Pulling Front Seats Forward On Brera

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Have I missed something here, or is this one of the most stupid features of the Brera? When pulling the seats forward for passengers to access the rear, if you don't pull the seat forward on the runners before dropping the seat forward with the handle they refuse to lock back into place until...

    Hi guys, just recently swapped my 17" alloys for the 19" to alloys.. Looks amazing but the only thing is that the car now pulls to the left.

  8. 2.0 JTDm gutless pulling away

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    My 2.0JTDm has become utterly gutless below around 1500 rpm. In first gear I've had to dip the clutch to prevent stalling despte having some throttle on. This is REALLY exciting when you've decided there is just about enough time to get across the oncoming 40 tonner!:wow: Getting halfway...

  12. Alfa 156 pulling left

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Dear All, Having owned a 147 2.0 with perfect tracking/geometry and balanced steering for 10 yrs, I am frustrated to find that my recently acquired 2004 156 v6 has an obvious pull to the left (not just natural drift with road camber). I have had 4 wheel geometry and tracking checked and all...

    Alfa 164 & 166
    Hi Folks, The local wheel alignment garage says there is no adjustment available for correcting a pull to the left in my year 2000 166 V6 24v.. Is this true? or maybe he just aint woked on one of these before!..Im sure amongst the serious amount of talent in this forum that someone has had the...

  17. Hunting and Pulling away...

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi, Since I've had it pulling away in the GTV has been a bit iffy, usually I'd expect a car to pull forward in 1st on the flat without using the accellerator (ie. when moving forward in a traffic jam etc). However when I try the instant it gets to the biting point the revs drop from just under...

    I was just idly totting up what I've already spent on my 33 project without it having turned a wheel, and I started doing a few searches on sites with that budget.
