    Whilst starting the recommissioning major overhaul of our other Sportwagon, I finished the removal of the egr system and was reminded that this car still has the butchered example of a positive battery connection box on it that it had when I bought it, er, over ten years ago. It's not like I...

    Prompted by another thread, when's the re-birth of Alfa - a term often used by the press - definitive? What has to happen before it doesn't need to be reborn anymore? Sell 500,000 cars? Have a range of 12 models? I know it's a well-worn Alfa cliche for the press, but in their eyes Alfa has been...

  5. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all - long time lurker but only a recent poster on this forum. I thought you might be interested in the saga of my 1.8 TS. In NZ the lowest spec 156 was the 2.0TS so it was a bit unusual to see a 1.8 for sale at the local wreckers for parts only. A bit of investigation (we were looking to...

    Saw Johnny English at the weekend with my family and pleasantly surprised to see him being chased by 2 black Range Rovers and 3 black Alfa 159's which are apparently british inteligence standard issue:cool: Thought 159's were getting a bit long in the tooth for starring roles in current movies...

    Did anyone see Top Gear with the trailer of the next Rowan Atkinson movie Johnny English Reborn? As he was trundling down the road in a converted wheelchair he was followed by 3 x Black 159Ti's (60 reg so watch out when they come to a dealers forecourt near you) ....... slightly off-topic...

    Introducing my new project. Some of you may recognise this as Bandituk's mrs' 145. As you can see it is a ph1 and has a plastic top engine. It was an MOT failure, the failure sheet filled 2 pages but the gist of it is the passengerside floorpan is rotted, rear brakes are knackered and the...

    My lovely 156 has just been for a full on service and is now reborn!:D It had full service with cam belt, variator, tensioner, auxillary belt and tackle the lot. It was feeling a bit ropey so treated her! I can't believe the difference, the engine sounds so smooth, power is restored, and...

  17. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, A while back I posted the sad story of my 147's excessive oil consumption, (it was about 1 ltr every 800 kms). Well things just got worse as time went on - oil consumption just went up.
