    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider

    General Motoring Discussion
    Keeping it as short as possible. One of my youngsters car's took a whack at the local supermarket this afternoon, not the unheard of parking dent but as they were coming into the car park. The other driver wasn't really looking where they were going and side swiped his car. He pulled over but...

  7. GT diesel - three years / 60k mile report

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I bought my 2008 GT Blackline diesel three years ago when the running costs of 20,000 miles a year on a heavily modded Fiat Coupe became silly. I bought it cheap (just over £4k) as it had 150,000 miles on the clock. I knew that with that mileage, a biggish bill was an inevitability and I have...
  8. Is there a way to report a dealership?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Our one and only Alfa Romeo dealership in Egypt is below standard. They also don't accept Alfa 156/147 unless in mint condition. Oils such as tutela don't get sold unless u do the service inside. Most mechanics have no Alfa training and learn as they go. The call centre is useless. I'm going to...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Stolen some time in the last few days: 4 x Nokian WR D3 225/50 R17 winter tyres mounted on original 17" Alfa Romeo 5-hole horseshoe alloy rims. B******s. They cut the locks off my garage and ransacked the place. They knew what they wanted, because they left my motorcycle alone. Or, they'll be...

  14. Old thread report-- dog noise

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Way back in the Spring this year I posted here that when hard braking a '' dog barking recording '' would shout at me. I've narrowed it down now and braking isn't the instigator for the '' barking '' ----- it's when I hard accellerate in the lower gears 1st 2nd 3rd then lift off . Usually I'm...
