  1. Damper & spring replacement quandry

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Been reading up on a lot of old threads about damper+spring combinations, as I need to renew all four corners soon, and I've narrowed it down to two that I think would suit me at the moment. They are also around the same price range. 1 Koni str.t kit which comes with H&R springs (30mm lowered)...

  3. Now here's a quandry........

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi all Antonia has an issue (again) Here's the facts..... She starts, drives and goes beautifully, but won't idle. This first happened earlier tonight, I thought I had stalled her, restarted no problem cranking, fired straight up, but when i remove my foot from the throttle, engine dies...
  4. Power steering fluid quandry

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Before i bought my 1.9jtdm sw lusso the steering fluid reservoir was replaced and the fluid supposedly changed to Tutela g1/r at an alfa dealership 3 years ago, all itemised on the receipt. When i checked the level in the reservoir i noticed that the fluid was actually red, rather than the green...
  5. Clutch Quandry GT

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi All - just been reading through all the threads I can find on the subject of GT clutch pedal anomalies but can't pin down anything similar to what I am having.... 2005 GT Jtd - clutch has always been on the heavy side but nothing drastic. When pushing the clutch pedal down, the last 5% or so...
  6. Quandry re my GTV

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Some thoughts would be appreciated. My GTV is in good nick, goes well, causes minimal problems and I still love it but...I am being seduced by the idea of owning a Honda s2000. I have not driven one as yet, so my question is, have any of you guys driven/owned one and what were your impressions...
  7. bit of a conrod quandry goin' on here...

    Alfa 33, Sud & Sprint
    In preparation for honing the bores and fitting new rings to my 1500 sud engine I started removing the pistons today. I'm building one motor out of two. The block I'm using is a low mileage 1500 originally fitted with a single carb and the heads and carbs are from a twin carb cloverleaf (which...
  8. GTV V6 purchase quandry...

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I've just seen a very low mileage, seemingly good condition GTV V6. However, the history is limited at best. It's a 2002 model with 34K miles, first service by main Alfa dealer after a year and 9K miles. After that it has been serviced by a non-franchise dealer (not Alfa specialist either)...
  9. In a quandry

    Poll Room
    OK, I'm not normally one for personal number plates but my better half is offering me the opportunity to get one with the new car. Options are (bearing in mind my initials are A.F and my surname is Duff): AF07 DUF ??07 AFD ?? AFD I think I know what I prefer, but what do you think?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Just bought my 156 2002 2.5 v6 with 36000 miles, got it at What I think was a great price. After reading all the posts about cam belts should I go for the 36000 mile check or do I pay the £600 quoted by an Alfa dealer in Inverness to get the whole lot done? belts tensioners pulleys etc!. I know...
