  1. FREE GSR Induction Kit for 2.0 JTDM - Please read!

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi, I hope this is ok to post in here, being as I'm not strictly selling anything! My 2013 2.0 JTDM currently has a GSR induction kit fitted.... Which I can't stand! To me, it's just a lot of noise for not a lot of gain.. Rather than go down the route of buying the stock airbox, air filter...

  5. Alfa 156 1.6 T Spark Fuel Consumption & MPG read out

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, Back into Alfa ownership and need a little guidance regarding my 156 1.6 TSpark. I've owned it for a few days and have I think poor fuel economy during my commute to work (8miles each way country roads). I've based this on the gauge shifting a lot rather than MPG readout, as it has used...

    Introduce Yourself
    Hey a newbie here from Essex. I’ve just purchased a 147 selespeed. Now I’m looking at a lot of YouTube videos on how to maintain Luggs (car name) so far I’ve purchased oil online, which is a first for me and tells you how serious I’m taking being an Alfa owner, not your big standard Halfords...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I need some definitive replies, no guess work! I’m replacing my steering rack Monday, my manual states Dextron III fluid or above? Being that it will be an empty system, can I put in a CHF11S/202 fluid or should I stick to the DextronIII? I have an OEM rack from Alfa so I don’t want to put a...
  10. With all the moans about hard plastics.. read this..

    Alfa Giulia
    So Autocar has a review of the VW TROC. All the dash plastics are hard. Oh no you'd think, since the Giulia (and Stelvio) have some hard plastics lower down and were subsequently criticized for this, you'd think Autocar would be all over this faux pas.. but no.. this is what they say...

  13. This area of the forum feels like AA (read AO)

    Introduce Yourself
    Or at least like what I've seen in the movies as I don't do more than a few pints. Hi, my name is <PUT YOUR NAME> and I'm an AA ... erm, make that AO. Now, back to the serious part. Wanted an Alfa for a long time, hoped for a 159 or a Brera (read 4c and 8c if I had the budget). I ended up with...
  14. Noisy Door Pillar (You gotta love the tips you read on this forum)

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I have had my 2011 159 Ti for a week and it is a beauty, it's much smoother and quieter than my 2007 Lusso, which surprised me considering the 19" wheels. The only niggle I had was a very annoying knocking sound on the door pillar, I can hear it in my right ear and it really irritates me. I...

  19. I am missing some wheel lugs, possible to order some? Also, read info.

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    When I was putting my 17" wheels on this spring, I couldn't find my lugs. The front wheels have all 5 lugs, one wheel in the back has 4 and one has 3. I figure replacing those lugs wouldn't be hard, but I completely forgot about it. I wanted to do it and postponed it and forgot, and now I'm...
