  1. Are 147 GTA dampers the same as regular 147 dampers?

    Alfa GTA
    As above, I'm wondering if there is anything specific to 147 GTA dampers. From what I can see the part numbers are the same so I assume they are the same?! Stupid question?!!!:rofl:
  2. "Limited edition" 916 Spider - different from regular spider?

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I've just bought a lovely yellow 916 spider and noticed that it is a "limitata" (limited edition). Most likely sold new in italy, but im not sure. I've done some googeling and found that limited editions are not much different from regular spiders. Am i in the wrong here? Just how "limited"...
  3. Alfa 159 2.0 jtdm overboosting on regular accelerations

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I have very weird problem, my alfa 159 2.0 2010 170hp, isnt going as it should, on light-medium accelerations, turbo is underboosting/overboosting, full throttle logs via MES are fine, desired and given boost are identical. Mods > egr off (blanked with plate too), dpf off, light remap to around...
  4. Regular unleaded vs high octane fuel

    Alfa MiTo
    Hello, opinions on higher octane fuel vs regular unleaded. Having never owned a fastish (155bhp) car before I have only ever used supermarket fuel for the simple reason of price. I only really use the car for 200mile trips every other weekend and do a little bit of town driving now and again...
  5. Regular brake fluid change?

    Alfa MiTo
    I had my brake fluid changed in November 2013 on my 1.6 JTDM. I've just had a service and MOT where the recommendation of changing it again due to low boiling point was included. Is this reasonable?
  6. Regular oil changes

    Alfa GTA
    Think my Gta was getting to around 8k since the last oil change as I have been busy and just topping up. So just to highlight the importance of regular oil changes, new oil today and the car felt completely different, mich more faster and quieter, even my blow from the downpipes strangely sounds...
  7. GTA uprights vs regular uprights

    Alfa GTA
    whats the difference between GTA and regular uprights? Just different mounts and/or brackets for fitting bigger calipers? or something else?

  9. Sportiva springs are the same as regular

    Alfa Giulietta
    Just checked eper to find out exactly what is different between the current setup on my 2.0 JTDM and a QV and stumbled upon something very bizarre! Not only is the front suspension as high as non-sportiva, THE EXACT SAME SPRING is used for sportiva and regular, namely part nr 50520149 The rear...
  10. Regular, Platinum or Iridium plugs?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Which would you recommend for a 156 TS 2.0? I've been told to get the Platinum NGK plugs but am wondering what the difference other than it lasting for around 60K miles is? :confused:
  11. Regular, Platinum or Iridium plugs?

    United Arab Emirates
    Which would you recommend for a 156 TS 2.0? Obviously not a performance vehicle - so what would you recommend? :thumbs:
  12. Hard to change from xenon headlights to regular?

    Alfa 164 & 166
    Broke the r/h xenon head light for the second time in a relatively short time :cry: Found cheap replacement last time, but that was due to luck. Cant afford to buy new parts and used are rare and expensive too. Regular aftermarkets HL are cheap at fleabay. So is it hard to replace xenon with...
  13. a/c turned on but it only makes consecutive 'tick' sound on regular interval

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, My car is JTS 03 156. My A/C somtimes does work. But most of times when I turn on the A/C it will make a 'tick' sound as it tries to turn on the motor. But the motor is not running. It tries to turn on over and over again which makes 'tick' sound on regular interval of few seconds. I opened...

  16. Regular Kent Meets

    South East
    Hello girls and guys Following from the 'regular Surrey meets' thread, I wondered what people fancy doing in Kent now that the run season is drawing to a close? I like the idea of taking short (30-45 minute) drives out to various different places to get some food or take a wander about some...
  17. Regular (ish) Meets in Surrey

    South East
    I went to an MGF meet the other day and it was a really nice evening. They meet once a month at a pub after work. I was wondering how many people would be interested in a regular social meet in the Surrey area. If we used the way they do it as a template we could meet 7.30 - 8pm on the first...
  18. Regular turbo failures on a 156 JTD 20v

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I have had my 2005 Alfa 156 JTD 20 valve for 4 1/2 years, absolutely love the car but can't understand why it eats turbos, every 8k to 12k miles. Has anybody had a similar problem? It had 18K on the clock when I bought it, from an Alfa dealer, at 8 months old, so don't know if it had already...
