  1. Noise when put aircon/fans on

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi, So I’m slowly going through any niggles on the 159 1.9 2007 150bhp I bought last week. One of the main things that is quite annoying is soon as put 1 bar of the fans on, quite an annoying wering sound starts which gets louder the faster you go. At a complete shot in the dark something to...
  2. Can I put 159 wheels on a Giulietta?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I'm guessing not, but I thought I'd ask. The recently deceased 159 has 225/50 tyres on 7Jx17 ET35 5x110 rims. The Giulietta calls for 225/45s on 7.5Jx17 ET41 5x110. Thanks!

  5. Sadly put my Bianco Nuvola 147 up for sale..

    Alfa GTA
    I know the price is a little speculative, but there's no others like it.. and I've spent a huge amount on it over the last couple of years. Plus... the exhaust note... it's worth it for that alone : ) If it gets no interest, I'll probably keep it. The money would be useful.. but no way am I...

    Alfa Giulia
    So I come to a stop, turn the engine off and fancy some cool air. I put the front windows down and enjoy a cool breeze for a few minutes, make a phone call and eat a chocolate bar. I then want to raise the windows. Nothing happens. It's like I've taken the key out. In the old days, you'd put the...
