  2. The real deal - exhausts.

    Alfa Stelvio
    Sorry, but I could not keep this to myself. There are a lot of cars on the market with- more or less - faked exhausts: thin pipes ending in larger tips/tubes. This is worse: the new Audi SQ5, has 4 nice exhaust tips integrated in body - but not connected to the exhaust pipes. Exhausts pipes...
  3. Advertising, actual real advertising!

    Alfa Giulia
    Ok, It's not much but yesterday I heard an actual advert for the Giulia and Stelvio on the radio! Half decent copy as well! It rambled along the lines of "You could by a Giulia or Stelvio because of the 5 year warranty, the realistic price, the "best in class driving experience" or the...

  5. Sportiva Nav 2.0 175bhp TCT - Real life MPG?

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi All, new here, although had a Mito for the last 4 years. Hopefully upgrading to the 175bhp diesel Sportiva Nav Giulietts and whilst the official economy figures sound amazing I guess they are rather fantasy! I just wondered if anyone else has this model and what MPG they tended to get...

  10. 164 real wheel hub: nut size & caulking

    Alfa 164 & 166
    Hello, I'm going to replace one of the rear wheel hubs on my Alfa 164L in a few days. According to my shop manual (CarDisc), the 7th step is "Remove caulking and the hub securing nut" after the wheel hub cap is removed and I also should caulk the hub securing nut after I tighten it during...
  11. Placebo or for real?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I’ve recently got a new earth cable- battery to gearbox, it’s the later Gt type with quick release. The old one looked pretty tired and wasn’t great even when I’d cleaned the body contact points up. The terminal mount would sometimes work a bit loose. I tried lead terminal caps, but they were...
  12. So what is the real deal with Giulia reliability?

    Alfa Giulia
    Calling all Giulia / Giulia Veloce owners. I am about to dole out a hefty amount just shy of 48K on a brand new fully-loaded Giulia Veloce - only thing holding me back at the moment is all the horror stories posted on the net from owners, test drives and (biased?) journalists: 1) Several...
  13. What's the real 0-100 of Veloce RWD?

    Alfa Giulia
    I've seen many sites and brochures stating 5.7 sec, others seem to cite 5.2sec. Which one is true? I am referring to the RHD RWD-only Veloce in Europe.

    General Motoring Discussion
    Hello everyone, I know it's a bit late in the evening to ask such a thing, but I was just looking at YouTube vids (as you do) when you don't feel like watching a film or the telly and I came across another blogger after watching WhiteDetails who I highly regard as the best at what he does on...

    General Motoring Discussion
    Driver unhurt apart from minor cuts. Former New owner of a 2017 hyper green lattitude (Wrecked before I even named it). - Jeep Renegade Forum US accidents seem to be so much more devastating. Probably due to the high cross-road style junctions count. Where all it takes is one idiot...

  17. Real World mpg? 26 mile commute.

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi all, Quite a subjective thread but I'm after the mpg for a 2.0 Jtdm Giulietta, manual, 2011. I have my eyes on one but wondered if anyone here has experience of real world mpg. My commute is 26 miles each way, mainly A and B roads. Due to the twisty nature of the roads, I tend to stick to...
  18. Real world MPG

    Alfa Giulia
    Just wondering what kind of MPG people are getting with the Giulia, both diesel and petrol models
  19. RTTI Real Time Traffic Information

    Alfa Giulia
    I have a QV on order. The salesman could not tell me about the traffic functionality. In my BMW I have at the moment I have the RTTI traffic info which is based upon very up to date data from other mobile phones etc etc. Does the Giulia use this? Or does it use the older TMC system? To be...
  20. Diesel real world economy falls further

    General Motoring Discussion
    Real world economy versus Manufacturer's claims for mpg have fallen still further behind. Data taken from thousands of fleet vehicles demonstrate that while the manufacturers continue to claim ever-higher mpg, the reality is that their cars are returning less on the road. The true economy now...
