  1. Recent Alfa purchase, was bound to happen

    Introduce Yourself
    Hi, I've recently bought an Alfa Mito 135 distinctive, not my first Italian car but the first Alfa. However given my family history I was always likely to end up with one at some point... My dad owned several minis in his youth, but when my mum was expecting me he needed something bigger and...
  2. My recent purchase - 156 2.5 V6 SW Veloce

    Introduce Yourself
    Hello! Picked up my first Alfa for 20 years (had a 145 Cloverleaf as a young lad that decided to throw a rod through the engine block) and i'm loving it! Only 75k on the clock and the paint is in great condition apart from a 10p size patch of bubbling on the roof. Sure it's a wee bit nose heavy...

  7. Long time admirer, recent new owner (MiTo content)

    Introduce Yourself
    Hello all, Having owned an R56 MINI Cooper Hatch for the last few years, a recent trip to the garage revealed a long list of future repair tasks that would soon result in me paying out more for upkeep than the car was worth (clutch had limited travel remaining, tyres, brakes, thermostat leaking...
  8. Lack of recent Mito reviews

    Alfa MiTo
    I suppose this has been done to death, but of all the UK frequent posters of reviews on YouTube on cars there are virtually none within the last year or two for the Mito, so difficult to gage opinions on newer versions. Yes there may be written reviews, but of the filmed reviews, they go back...
  9. Pollen Filter and recent 18000 service

    Alfa Giulietta
    Seeing the recent thread on replacing the pollen filter prompted me to do it for the second time this morning, pollen filter that is! Had a spare in the garage so went to work...not so supple as I once was and struggled a bit, even with the piece of wood cut to hold the clutch pedal down, called...
  10. Recent suggestions, rear parking sensors

    Alfa MiTo
    Hiya, my OH and I have just bought a lovely 11 plate Mito Cloverleaf but alas it doesn't have rear parking sensors! I've seen old threads with a couple of recommendations, just wondered if anyone had more recent successful after-market fittings of rear parking sensors? Thanks!

  12. AlfaStumper Recent Dealings

    Alfa GTA
    Just wanted to ask if anyone has had any recent dealings with AlfaStumper? I was looking at a couple of items and inquired about shipping costs to Australia. I haven't herd anything and it's been over 2 weeks, not sure if I am willing to give someone my money if they can't reply to an email...

  17. recent brera remap

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I've had my 07 Brera 2.2JTS for a week now, it was remapped a year so by HRG Cheshire, but I don't know what the remap focused on. I still have control and hesitation at around 1800rpm..could it be it was remapped for fuel economy but not flat spot? Or maybe the remap was wiped. I've checked...
  18. 159 suspension bushes... Recent mot...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi! Just wondering how difficult it is to change the NSF/OSF suspension arm rubber bush on my 159 Ti and at what cost? Piccadilly have quoted £1089.05 and this seems outrageous for a bit of rubber, I'm assuming there is more to this job other than me just being fleeced? Can anyone advise on a...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi, I've just stepped out of my 156 TS and into a 159 JTDm SW. As expected I've got issues already and I'm hoping you stellar forum folks can give me some pointers. Serious knocking noises over bumps, hard to place where from in the cabin but I'm pretty sure it's the front upper wishbones as...
