  1. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi, My Alfa GTV 1999, 2ltr twin spark keeps cutting off whilst driving. Mangoletsi have said they do not have the examiner and interface to reprogram the stepper motor and to fix the fault any more. Does anybody know where I can take my car to have it fixed. My mechanic says its definitely...

    Hi All My key fob for my Alfa 156 was working perfectly when I noticed that the battery holder had come loose and the metal key part wasn't parking properly. I pushed the battery holder in but after that the key would not open close the doors or enable the alarm! It was just seconds between...

    Ladies and Gents. I had my car keys nicked... :cry: and I am reasonably sure they have my address as they were together with some correspondence etc... (wish they came by for a visit - they'd stop stealing for good...) I haven't had a chance to call an Alfa dealer yet but did anyone of you have...

    What are people's thoughts on which is best? £200 gets you a Dragon plug in module and 30BHP £400 gets you a reprogram and 60BHP+ Normally I'd wait a bit longer so I could get the most power, but as I do 20,000 miles a year, I need to think about the life of my clutch etc. As it's peak torque...
