  1. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    My Brera was subjected to its MOT last week, it's the first one I have put it through since purchasing last year. I spent 1 weekend last summer preparing the sub frames for winter. The car failed, one broken handbrake cable which I did on the way to the test station, no advisories, a great...

    I am planning a compression test tomorrow on my GT 3.2 and have always tested on a warm engine. However, I know a lot of people prefer to do this on a cold engine, the reason being is - apparently - that it tends to highlight any problems as the pistons/rings etc are cold and the resulting...

    The door seals on the GTV were shot, so bought some new ones from Partsworld. Arrived today fitted in 5 mins. - result! No problems at all, which for me is very unusual. Looks like previous owners had tried to glue them in (more than once it seems). Simply slotted in. Second result today was...

    Folks, Two days ago our Alfa 147 was rammed in the backside while waiting in traffic. Big BMW culprit had notable plastics damage and front number plate bust. Got out, looked round the back and - nothing! We were gobsmacked. A later close examination revealed a plastic tab snapped under...

    JD Power survey 2013 - Small family cars - What Car? Not good. Odd that the listed complaints are hardly what anyone here is complaining about. AR is the second lowest of any manufacturer in the whole survey. Mind you there is only just over a 10% spread between AR in 26th place and Jaguar at...

    The Alfa Giulietta finished as the 7th best car on the UK/Irish market in a survey of 46,000 Auto Express readers, it was deemed to be more reliable than a VW Golf.

    Wondering what decision was finally made after the petition and blogs that were created to fight the closure of the Museo Storico in Arese?
