  1. Alfa 166 by MS Design - anyone remember it?

    Alfa 164 & 166
    Here's a rare alternative to the Alfa 166 Zender bodykit / upgrade if anyone's interested. MS Design of Germany offered this rather tasty bodykit, wheels etc as well as suspension upgrades etc. I recall it being expensive & high quality stuff. Those wheels in particular look great on the 166...
  2. My 916 3.0 v6 24v: An adventure to remember!

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hello everybody! As some of you may know, i bought my beautiful bella back in Summer 2015. From then till today, i had a lot of failures, bad moments, swears, pocket bleeding etc etc.. But also had some unique moments & unforgettable pictures to remember! So from October 2016 till today...
  3. Get you Alfa Out- and remember the poor old Events Sections

    General Alfa Discussion
    It's great weather now, so people up and down the country are arranging meets so you can take your car to chat (in real life!) with other AO members. This is just a bit of a reminder to check out your local area events section. They do get a bit neglected. If you've never been to a meet before...
  4. Oh I remember!

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I'm going through a relocation with work at the moment. My GTV is being stored at my folks while this happens. My daily is a very good but purposefully dull A3... haven't driven the V6 for a month, not touched it or even seen it. But today I had a spare morning and took it out. Started first...
  5. Can you remember the different diff ratios Pud

    Alfa GTA
    I think you gave me a list on the three available about to strip some boxes and check what i have and where they originated from. thanks
  6. 156 Brakes not like I remember them?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    So my brother moved over to the UK and he gave me his 156... From driving my 147 that has pretty decent brakes, it feels like the 156 brakes don't seem very sharp or, not as I remember them, always thought they felt much the same as my 147 brakes. The pedal feels quite solid but the brakes...
  7. Anyone remember who had Bilstein B4 with Eibach springs

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I've been searching for the thread which was fairly recent about someone who plumped for B4's with Eibachs. Was it you?

  9. Remember When...

    Way Off Topic
    A computer was something on TV From a science fiction show of note. A window was something you hated to clean, And ram was the cousin of a goat Meg was the name of my girlfriend. A gig was a job for the night. Now they all mean different things, And that really mega bytes. An application was...
  10. Remember to service your car.. How dirty are your filters?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I was determined today to service my alfa 159 1.9 JTDM 16v today, so last week I ordered all the parts and got cracking. All went well but I was quite surprised to see the condition of the pollen and air filters, which in turn got me thinking.... What's the worst people have seen either on...
  11. Edwin Hawkings singers song for those old enough to remember

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Yep, it was called 'Oh Happy Days '. :lol: So, as now got full aircon (although not overly cold even after regass ), am now happy riding around in my cheapo 156. Currently putting a red leather interior into it ( thought it would look good against the blue paintwork !) and orange on black...

  13. what was the first car you remember your bro/sis having?

    General Motoring Discussion
    i see a pattern developing here! :lol: my big sis' first car was a classic low mileage, one retired lady owner gem. It was a 1985 Fiesta Pop Plus with either an 850cc or a 950cc engine (Ford fans can correct), but it was barely a 1.0. By 1993, it had done...7,000 miles. It was immaculate, and...
  14. what was the first car you remember your mum having?

    General Motoring Discussion the spirit of equality, and all that :lol: My mum passing her driving test coincided with my dad getting a company car, a Strada 65CL (living the dream! :lol:). My dad gave it to my mum (because it had five doors) and he bought a GTV. Mum took one look at the GTV and said 'i'm having...
  15. what's the first car you remember your dad having?

    General Motoring Discussion
    my dad had a mini traveller when i was born (1971) but i don't remember it. i do, however, clearly remember the one he had after that - an austin 1300 GT which he bought new in 1973 and kept in until 1980 he always said it was his favourite car so i was just having a trawl around t'internet...
  16. Air Bag Woes.... I remember those!

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider

  18. Pop Quiz: Returning Member - Anyone Remember Me?

    Introduce Yourself
    Hi! Not been here for ages... Wow have I missed the banter! Anyhoo... my name is not a million miles away from what it once was. I used to have a 1986 Spider. I liked to write plays for the assembled Alfisti. * hated me (narrows it down) but never knew why. Probably I'm long forgotten but...
  19. Does anyone remember.........

    General Alfa Discussion
    The Nissan Cherry Europe/Alfa Arna? I remember working on the odd one or two way back in the mid eighties and thought they were pretty cool with the old flat 4 rasp :) shame they fell to bits so easily though :lol: Are there any still left out there??
  20. Does anyone remember a recall/update for Motronic 1.5.5 ECUs

    Engines (TS, JTS, JTD & V6)
    I came across an interesting post earlier this evening from 2006 which mentioned a dealer/factory recall to fix an issue which caused early M 1.5.5 ecus (pre-1999) to incorrectly adjust the fuel mixture due to interference caused by the lambda heater element. source: Alfa Romeo forum: Cold...
