    Alfa Giulia
    I don't profess to be an audiophile but I do appreciate good high quality audio and have long since discarded all my mp3 files in favour of FLAC and Spotify has been swapped out for Tidal in order to stream Lossless audio. Now, via Bluetooth Tidal is wasted as the compression that takes place...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    As the title says really ...where is the cheapest place to get a left upper wishbone for a late (so the different taper) 159?

  6. Sound quality 166 ICS and Loudlink

    Alfa 164 & 166
    Ok, so now I've tried a lot of things that won't require me to buy an aftermarket sound processor. I have now finished the first part of my sound install in the 166. Basically I am running a high quality kit-system from Hertz in the front with a 2-channel Rockford fosgate amp. I have two 8-inch...
  7. Build quality. Time to look under the bonnet, too?

    General Motoring Discussion
    Guys, Not sure where I'm going with this, but... Much has been said/written about build quality over the years, often in the context of paint finish, assembly and quality of materials used on the body and interior. Today I was looking at pictures of a new car from a manufacturer that has a...

    Does anyone have experience of the change in ride quality of a 166 2.0ts with 225/45/17 all round when compared with one fitted with 205/55/16, please? Will the speedo read correctly if I substitute the 16"s for the 17"s, both of which are specified alternatives for the car? I'm assuming the...
  9. Giulia/Stelvio interior quality

    Alfa Giulia

    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...

    Alfa Giulietta
    So, 7500 miles in on a brand new Giulietta, love the looks and the Alfa image but slowly but surely the build quality is showing its true self. Dash buzzes, door Buzzes, headline buzzes and now rear seat near side squeaking every time I go over a minor bump in the road. I've unzipped it and...
