  1. Alfa Giulietta
    I got in my car this morning and at first i thought there was something wrong with the gearbox as it wasn’t letting me put it in 1st, however once i applied full pressure to the clutch it worked, this has never been the case before so what could this potentially be? It’s a 1.4 (170) Multiair
  2. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I've mounted my 17" wheels on and, the wheels seem tucked under the side panel. They weren't like this before. The only thing that has changed is the rear springs were reverted back to stock because they were cut, so now the car is higher in the back and its the same in the front as it always...
  3. Alfa Giulietta
    The "service coupon expired" message on my 64 plate 2.0 JTDM-2 came up in June 2015 after around 20,000km - had it serviced at local Fiat Group dealer (think it was roughly £200).... I now have the same message up again - only 6 months later with about 40,000km on the odo??? Local Fiat garage...
  4. Alfa 164 & 166
    Have used Ecuscan OK on two 156's. However on 166 3.0 24V it won't allow me to interrogate engine codes as the ECU's are highlighted in red. This appears to require a registered (paid for) version. I note that Pomeo has used it successfully on his 166's so why is my version not allowing me to. Doug
  5. The Classic Alfa Romeos
    This is driving me potty now! I am in the process of completely rebuilding the front end. I have had a few issues with the bonnet fowling on rivits that hold the small panel in front of the bonnet in place (holds the grill). This is ok now. However then it fowled on the air vents in the scuttle...

  7. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I Recently had a new clutch fitted by a non alfa garage, they did a bit of a boo boo and my much loved alfa 147 wouldnt start once. After they had it for two weeks i finally got it back, they said the ECU was faulty and they had to replace it. But now the ecu is displaying lots of faults and...
  8. Alfa MiTo
    Sadly, the front Alfa emblem on my Mito was stolen. I've found some available on eBay but was told by my dealer that in order to install the front emblem, I will have to 'loosen' the front bumper to reach the screw to which the emblem attaches. This sounds like really poor design on Alfa's...
  9. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, I would like people's opinion on how you would feel if a little creaking noise at the front of the car requires welding on the bulkhead. The creaking noise appear when going around corners or turning the steering wheel. Car is a one a half years old and so under warranty. I never heard of...
  10. Alfa 155
    chaps. Doing an oil change this weekend, I believe I need 10w40 but after previous oils changes with cheaper stuff I am looking for the best quality I can buy for me beast. I know there is millions of oil posts but really dont have the time to sift through them all for a quick response, call me...

    All If you have a 155TB to get 155HP you need a minimum of 98RON fuel...Super Unleaded is normally RON97 and supermarket bog standard unleaded you can forget it lol Shell V-Power [RON 99] and Tesco Superunleaded [RON 99] is the way forward :-) !!!! In the owners manual at the bottom of Page...

  13. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Please can someone help or advise! When she got her 147, both keys had the metal keychain thing at the end missing - so she can't put a keyring or any keys on. Now i've got my 156 GTA and 2 nice shiny keyrings, she is starting to wear me down. "why can't I have one", "Get me one", "why...
  14. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    The cambelt snapped today on my 156:cry: Was coming off a round about at 30 mph. I was a fool and delayed changing the cam which was well over due. My engine has been sounding like a diesel for ages and I neglected that as well. On reading previous posts sounds like the diesel like noise has...
  15. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I have a 99' V6 GTV with the 5 speed box, its sounding a little rumbley on over run (i.e. coming up to a roundabout, changing down through the gears, especially in second) So, I thought id give some Alfa breakers a call and see if they have a suitable box for replacement.. My questions are...
  16. General Alfa Discussion
    Hey folks just sold my Porsche Boxster which I absolutely adored due to changing circumstances and am now in need of a 5 door hatchback - the 147 seemed like the obvious choice for someone wanting to still retain some sort of 'drivers car' so I would appreciate any advice on what to look out...
