  1. Putting 166 back on the road

    Alfa 164 & 166
    My 166 has been off the road since last May and today it is dawning on me the amount of work she is going to need to really put right , technically the alternator is gone but realistically she needs an awful lot to be back in good condition, I've sat down today and added up some costs...
  2. Is putting a quadrifoglio sticker on a Brera not cool?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I recently got me a Red Brera and I always wonder what it'ld look like with the iconic four leaf clover you see on iconic red Alfa race cars of old... But then is it like those folks who put AMG or M stickers on their Mercs and BMWs? You know a bit fake and not cool??

  6. Putting boot badges back on

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hello :byebye: This is my first post but I've been lurking in the background and reading posts. When I bought my GTV in May 2015, the GTV badge was on the wrong side and it was missing the '2.0 T.SPARK' badges. I've sourced the missing badges and now would like to put these on the car but...
  7. Putting out the feelers!

    I’m looking to sell my 2005 GT Grey with tan leather, bose, winter pack ect!. LSD!! The car has done 90K and has full service history, plus only 2 owners. I think it would benefit going to an Alfa forum member who appreciates how much an unsorted car can end up costing them. (See recent...
  8. Interior putting me off GT. Poor quality?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, I'm thinking about changing my 159 for a GT but I'm being put off by the quality of the interior. I've driven 2 of them now and they are lovely to drive. But both of them had very ropey looking interiors. The thing I noticed most was the electric window control panel which looked really...

  13. Over a barrel and putting the boot in!

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi All, Got round to wanting to fit my replacement boot badge today. Anyway, to cut a long story short, I pulled the key out of the boot lock and it brought the whole cylinder with it! (This before I had done anything!) As the key goes in I can see it moving the pins. However when I slide the...
