    A 2008 159, 1.8 MPI has come up cheap but has no keys. It's got over 140k miles with a pretty clean/normal wear and tear MOT history. The main issue is the owner has lost both keys so it's sat for 4-5 months. What ways are there to resolve this, talked to a company about reprogramming a used...

    Hey guys, I got an Alfa 159 with one key that doesn't work. It starts the engine and the manual key unlocks and locks the boot but not one button on it works. It's not the battery as the guy I bought it from tried that. So any ideas what else it could be to fixing it? And how much is a...

    Decided to link this in case anyone wants/needs it. Seems to be exactly the same content that those online repair manual places are selling (probably illegal/grey area for them to sell it as well). I think they just upload someones print screen of the manuals and sell them. So instead of...

  14. Alfa Giulietta
    Does anyone know where I can find a repair manual in English. Easy to find Dutch or Italian. I need to replace the clutch already after 30k miles so looks like I will be doing this quite often and at £1000 a time at the garage it will get quite costly. Is it as bad as I keep hearing? One guy...
