  2. Alfa Giulia
    Hi I’m looking to buy a Giulia but there isn’t an Alfa dealer in Edinburgh any longer. My nearest are both Arnold Clark garages in either Paisley (where I had a test drive yesterday) or Aberdeen. Could anyone recommend a particular dealer or should I just use carwow to get the best discount...

    Sorry for another ‘please recommend’ - but I am looking for a good Alfa specialist for a timing belt job on my 3.2, in and around the Bristol area. After Googling, Automeo pops up. Anyone have any experience with them - or other recommendations? Thanks!

    I may be mistaken but aren't Autocar one of the many pro-German mags? Casually perusing the car and tech mags this evening I noticed an Alfa 159 in the bottom left corner... They did list issues as such but they were pushing the diesels (on a tight budget) or a 1.8TBi Sportwagon for those with...
  7. Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Looking for the above, Been getting intermittent EWL flashes, be good to diagnose these things myself in case I need to visit garage. The kind of thing you don't use often, so whilst not looking to spend a packet on one be good if it was known to be reliable etc. Any recommendations please...

    Hi All, I am looking to blank my EGR to see if it cures my hesitation issues but I can't seem to find one which fits my GT JTDM 2006 (I can't find a 16v one?) Only 8V or 10V. Will these still fit? I am only looking to block the exhaust side with the plate with one hole...
  9. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Evening, I'm brand new to Alfa ownership, but take delivery of a GTV Twin Spark in a week or so. It's in excellent condition but it will probably live outside for most of the time. Does anyone have a highly recommended cover for their cars. I have had several of varying quality and longevity for...

  11. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    What was the official tyre specification used for a 1996 Alfa Romeo Spider 2000 TS ? What was the factory installed brand used ? What other brands of tyre are recommended and legal for France. ? I imagine that the Pirelli P6000 was official. Is the P7 a suitable ?
  12. Tuning & Upgrades
    Hey guys, After some years of ownership of alfas and endless research i haven't stumped upon a list of recommended upgrades for the 156. The list is probably 10 years late, better late than never right ? :teacher: Anyways here it goes: (an [X] means its fitted on my 2.5 98 156) Audio [X]...

    Hi all from Spain I'm the owner of an Dec '04 GT JTD with 160k km on the clock. Gearbox oil was changed a few thousand miles ago but I noticed reverse gear being quite difficult to select. It gets easier selecting another gear before engaging reverse, without stop pressing the clutch. Also the...
  14. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I've had the horrible squealing pretty much since I've had the car, I do mostly motorway driving so it's never really bothered me. I changed the discs and pads in order to cure it (Standard Brembo set up)but it's still there. I'm thinking of changing the discs and pads again, but may as well...

    There've been a lot of threads recently about bad suppliers, of whom we shall not speak, but I'm pleased to say I've had a great experience with DC Performance. I ordered a Supersprint manifold from them (thanks for the tip, OperationAlfa) and I'm pleased to say their service was excellent...
  19. The Technology Section
    I don't know how other phones do their ringtones, but the iPhones have a limit of 40 seconds length, so rather than just picking a full song, you have to pick a section. This actually works well(ish) for me, as I dislike vocals in a ringtone, so allows me to grab a good instrumental break...

    Hi, I have considered booking the car into Powerline in Shipley, who advertise as a diesel specialists, but would appreciate hearing from any members who have either used Powerline or can recommend an alternative. Thanks.
