    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hiya I'm new here and signed up because I was hoping to learn more about the 147 (which I love the look of and the fact it is quite affordable and compact) and enlighten me on the positives and the negatives of ownership. So far I've learnt that the timing belt and tensioners need changing...
  2. Recent Alfa purchase, was bound to happen

    Introduce Yourself
    Hi, I've recently bought an Alfa Mito 135 distinctive, not my first Italian car but the first Alfa. However given my family history I was always likely to end up with one at some point... My dad owned several minis in his youth, but when my mum was expecting me he needed something bigger and...

    Hello! Picked up my first Alfa for 20 years (had a 145 Cloverleaf as a young lad that decided to throw a rod through the engine block) and i'm loving it! Only 75k on the clock and the paint is in great condition apart from a 10p size patch of bubbling on the roof. Sure it's a wee bit nose heavy...

    Hello :-) I'm seriously toying with the idea of buying a 2004 156 Sportwagon 2.4 JTD 20V facelift from a private seller in my local area. I went to view the car the other evening and bar a few minor problems, I totally fell in love with the car. It pulled like a train and felt solid based on...

  16. Used Mito purchase - advice required

    Alfa MiTo
    Hi All I joined this forum to learn all about Mito's as my 17-yr old Daughter has fallen in love with them, and the lower-power versions are pretty good on learner / new driver insurance.
