  1. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    My 3.2 Q4 Spider sat on the drive from September until two weeks ago. When it was revived the battery was dead, but a couple of days alternating between regular and repair charges with my NOCO Genius charger seemed to have done the trick. While doing a service we found a small amount of oil...

    Would anyone know how i could go about updating the Qtronic software or even better have the gearbox remapped properly? Thanks Craig
  3. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hello everyone, I am interested in buying a 159 Q-Tronic, and from all I have read the 2.4 JTDM Q-Tronic seems to have an average fuel consumption of 10-12 l/100 km (23-28 MPG), or even worse. I have been looking for the fuel consumption of the 1.9 JTDM Q-Tronic, and found little data. Can...

    Hello everyone, Need some advice. I am looking to buy an Alfa 159 Sportwagon, I have wished for one since the car first came out. My budget is limited to 3-4000 EUR right now. The 2.0 JTDM, 1.75 TBi and 3.2 JTS seem to be more expensive. Cars that fit my budget seem to be made with very few...

    Until about a year ago this beauty was my daily commuter until a new job further away meant I just had to garage it and run something more economical. I've SORNed it and the tax & MOT have expired. It's such a shame to see it under covers in the garage and I've been thinking of selling it but...

    Hi I'm new here and looking to find the right spec of 159 to purchase. I know I want a 2.4 jtdm but the question comes down to trim / gearbox combo. I see Tis for sale and Q Tronics but never together. The Q Tronic always seems to be in the Lusso spec. Coming from an automatic Audi A4 and now...
  8. Tuning & Upgrades
    Hello guys... I have found some interesting tuning projects here (brera with 300+hp, GT with Tbi engine,...) Through the search I couldn't find topic about combining 159 Q4 and qTronic... There is 2.4 Q4 or 2.4 qTronic... Due to 3.2 Q4 with qTronic I am wondering if this combo would be...

    Hi, This problem occured before gearbox oil change also. What happens mostly from 2nd to 3rd, the gearbox hesitates and the options are or press the accelerator pedal or depress it, to make it change smoothly, otherwise it hiccups and swings rotation (a bit, nothing like manual transmissions...

    About Q-Tronic For owners who have this gear box, can you tell me for example if you're at 40 km/h and you take out the foot from accelerator and put on brake, the gearbox won't seems to brake with gear box reduction but it goes to like 900rpm. But some times it makes gear box reductions, like...

    Hi all, I would like to respray the plastic insert on my Qtronic gear knob. I'd prefer to do it out of the car ? I can't seem to figure out how to remove the knob. The chrome plastic ring at its base comes loose OK, but I can't get any further. Can anyone give me any clues? Thanks!

    I am putting some feelers out for a colleague, who is searching for a Brera 2.4 JTDM Q-Tronic. Ideally, the car would be the later model, FSH, excellent condition. Preferred colours of grey or black (not really keen on white or silver) - but, hey....can’t be too picky! Been to see a couple -...

    They say you should never buy a car unseen, also, the wise man should probably never go on ebay and bid after a few drinks. I have done both, more than once. A GTV twinspark, which I ran for 60k, fantastic car, only sold it when I got my hands on a GTV 3.0. :inlove: I also bought a...

    I've recently joined the Alfa family with a 159 ti 2.4 jtdm qtronic sportwagon. As with any new toy there are few things that I want to do to it. One of which is to replace the gear knob and shaft on the qtronic box and the plastic gear gaiter. I've tried looking on the internet for any supplier...

    First post. New to the forum but not new to Alfa ownership. Can those with Q-tronic 159’s please advise if when you use manual mode, if you shift up or down, if the gear lever returns automatically or if you need to move it back manually by hand.

    I know these boxes are witchcraft and must be treated like royalty - maybe not provided you use an atf of the correct spec this is quite a simple job if a little time consuming took me 4 hours tools required 8mm hex socket for fill plug 12mm hex socket for drain plug T40 torx bit for level...

    Hello everyone, So recently I bought an Alfa 159 QTronic 1.9jtdm and heard some humming/grinding noise when I am driving, which stops the moment I release the throttle, I don't even have to be accelerating, it is enough to be keeping the speed and you can hear it, it is similar to the tire...

    Lads, recently bought a 2008 159 TI 2.4 Qtronic, it's had eibach springs fitted at the front after a spring failed on the previous owner, the problem I'm having is the ride height, especially on the passenger side, it grounds on the subframe with the slightest of bumps and its verging on...

    Hi guys, just traded my 156 in for a 08 159 2.4JTDM Q-TRONIC with 31000 miles :thumbs: I pick it up on Tuesday but I'm a little worried about when the timing belt needs changed. I had my 156 for 5 years and changed it twice but that was a petrol engine and I've heard the diesel engine needs the...
