  4. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Right so Im nearly due a new clutch and im guessing dmf is probably on its last legs. So ive been looking at the solid flywheel option. Dont really want to debate the pros/cons, just interested in where people have had theres from and price/experiences etc. The car has been mapped and i am used...

  7. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I've recently bought a GTV 3.0 from another member on here. I'm really pleased with it but with the sportscat, Ragazzon (2x70mm) end section and a very small replacement centre silencer it drones between 2 - 3000prm. I don't really want to buy a replacement system so I wondered if I replaced...
  8. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    The nearside drive shaft spider on my 1.9 GT sounds like a couple of skeletons shagging in a coffin and through the footwell it feels like it as well. Should I pay £85 for the spider repair kit from Autolusso or shell out the £50 for a whole re-manufactured drive shaft from J&R? I don't doubt...

  11. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi Guys, I need four new boots on my 159sw. I currently have 225/50/R17 98W Toyos fitted, but, apart from the fact they are now down to about 2mm tread, I don't like the way they skitter about in the wet - they are great in the dry, but, no confidence in them at all in wet conditions, so, I...

  13. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    I just thought I'd take a moment to share my recent modifications and recommend some parts and suppliers. I bought my 159 1.9 JTDm Lusso about three weeks ago. It was exactly the colour combination I wanted (black bodywork with biscuit/natural leather) and it had FSH, 112,000 miles. I paid...

    Dear friends, The spider needs new disks and pads, 2.0 ts , any advise please, they are standard at the moment. Should I stick to OE or go for grooved and drilled?? Have had a look on ebay. £139 for disks and pads. What do you advise. Cheers
  15. Alfa 164 & 166
    Walking the fine line at the moment, it appears as though there is s tear in one of my belts, I can actually see the bit if rubber flapping loose ehen engine is running, so I think cambelt change is on the agenda... **** because I didn't budget for it this yr so Im in the dog house at the...
  16. The Classic Alfa Romeos
    thinking about getting some compomotive MLs for the Junior, & these can be ordered in pretty much any size & offset. The lower the offset the deeper the spokes sit in the wheel - the better they look. I'd like to fit some wheels with this spec; 195/55/15 or on 15x8 rims with ET 25 now when...
  17. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I have got a 156 bootlid and spoiler that needs spraying up. Anyone got any ideas to how much it's gonna cost me. Also anyone with reccomendations for a good body shop in or near Swindon. Thanks
  18. ICE & Blue&Me
    Hi Everyone Im after some recommendations really, im sure there are many people on here more knowledgeable than me! Ive seen many threads on here that talk about connecting iPhone's/iPod's to Blue & Me enabled cars. My 147 does not have B&M so im limited to an FM transmitter or a head unit...

    I've just bought a 1999 Honda CRV for the wife to use. Nice and cheap and in good nick, though at some point somebody has whipped the CD/radio system out of it, I think it used to have a Pioneer multi changer, well at least that's what the handbook would imply. I want to put a new one in but...
