  1. Dodgy Service Records ?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I am on the look out for a GT, preferably with an excellent Alfa Service History. A Blackline has just come up but I am suspicious of its Service Record which is shown online with other pics of the car. There are a number of reasons why I am suspicious: All the dates and mileage are in the...
  2. Car records you aren't proud of....

    General Motoring Discussion
    I realised the other day that I have owned about 6 cars and 5 of those I managed to do some damage to / killed the engine. It's not a record I am proud of but I thought I'd start a thread about it. My history of destruction is as follows: My first car was a Mini 1275 GT. Within three days of...
  3. Low instant mpg records

    Alfa Giulietta
    On a more positive note than some of my recent posts... And following on from an earlier post read elsewhere, what is the lowest instant mpg we've seen? I've seen 5.9 doing well over 40 in second gear this afternoon. Can this be beaten?
  4. Just for the records

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    What (extras) changes have you made to your lovely Alfa so far? What else are you thinking to add on? I personnally I've done so far to my 159 the following things::thumbs: 1 DPF, EGR Valve Removed and remapped 2 Kenwood DNX multimedia System (Head Unit) 3 TV 4 Headrests DVD/TV/USB 5 Kenwood...
  5. Don't trust seller's maintenance records

    Alfa 164 & 166
    I bought my 166 (facelift 3L) with a bit of a service history. 94k miles. The previous owner had paid for a cam belt change at 60isk K. Not at a recognised AR dealer/specialist. It hasn't been done, the plugs have never been changed! The belts are 'on the brink'. Bring back capital...
  6. Our records indicate that you have not yet made your hello post!

    Introduce Yourself
    I have joined because I am considering a 147 for a number of reasons: They are cheap (second hand) They look good they are rarer (currently drive Focus) People say they are a good drive My doubts are: Reliabilty (obviously) Speed - I need good overtaking ability and be able to cruise at 90
  7. Any Ideas how we can get AO into the Guinness Book Of Records ?

    Motoring Images
    Besides the biggest amount of posts what else ??
  8. Guiness Book of Records

    General Alfa Discussion
    I read that the GBR is teh third best selling book in the universe after the Bible and the Koran and the Ford Escort Haynes repair manual and it set me thinking... What's the longest that anyone has had to wait for a part? I claim the record at 6 months for a n/s mirror for an Alfa 33 P4...
