  1. Alfa GTA
    Hi all, I've only owned my 156 gta a couple of weeks now, but all I can say is wow! I've had some quick cars, but this gta feels very "brisk" haha, out of curiosity I had the car rolling roaded, and she pulled 283bhp. The car as far as I'm aware is completely standard, and was running on normal...

  4. Tuning & Upgrades
    Well after reading JB's feedback I just had to have it done ... massive improvement over what I already had. Just driven back to Milton Keynes and is even more of a motorway monster than it was. Adie took the time to make sure it was tweaked to perfection, very similar results to JB's Now...

  6. Alfa GTA
    Well on Sat i used my free MOT from Quikfit to see what I would need for my real one (cheap test really) The mechanic was laughable and I did enjoy the warnings Failed on - Rear Tyres (already now changed, just tried my luck) - Brake line from Flexi to Caliper corroded on drivers...

  8. South Africa
    Its bloody hard work I'll have to be honest. Simply because I did not have to correct tools, I have to borrow from friends. Its delecate work as well, when you work with the lights, DONT touch the chrome parts:tut:...its very soft and paper-like. The strip of the lights is a task you'll have to...
  9. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Afternoon peeps, just got back from Checkpoint motors in Mold after getting a new battery and whilst they were changing it (included in the price of the battery) I asked for a quote to have my cambelt, followers etc and waterpump done as its due in the next 1000 miles (about 2 weeks driving for...

    Here's the result. From my perspective and looking at the list of what needing sorting / still needs sorting, it's pretty fair really:eek:
  11. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Well for quite a while iv had a whirring noise,a whistle and also a sound what i can only diagnose as air escaping from behind the engine...The Portuguese Mechanic has diagnosed it as the aux belt tensioner that controls the air con! he showed me and it is definatly coming from that area but...
  12. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    i damaged my 147 in the snow a couple of weeks ago and took it to a new alfa garage around the corner because the back wheel wobbled like a goodun and he had a look and said i had bent the link arm and it was very dangerous as the wheel could buckle under the car and fall off, he also said the...
  13. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi Everyone I wanted to share with you some success if you like a success story, I have spent weeks looking for a spoiler for my spider. I have LOOKED everywhere unless I wanted to spend £200+ quid which was just to much the time you have it spray and fitted, other than that there’s a crap*y...

  15. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I have a 147 1.6 lusso 2004 that has been experiencing poor fuel consumption. After getting it checked out mechanically, there is nothing wrong with it. I had a diagnostic check run a few days ago and no codes for faults appeared and most of the sensors appeared to be operating fine, including...

  17. General Alfa Discussion
    FIlling up last week at my local Shell garage the pump failed to cut out - I was in a bit of a day dream and ended up spilling about 5 litres of fuel on the forecourt. A bit pi**ed off I went to have a moan and was given the brush off (have to speak to the manager etc etc). Anyway, one (slightly...

    My exhaust started blowing a couple of days ago, so I had it checked out by the local grease monkey today. Was a bit worried about the cost of a new exhaust, especially so close to christmas when we're all feeling the pinch a bit. :( So she went up on the ramps and the mechanic checked out...

    After two trips to Yorkshire (I know I am a glutton for punishment), one to France, and being rained on almost everyday during our last "summer", the 166 was looking really miserable. Dirty, spotty and streaky. As I couldn't physically handle a full wash-wax and buff, I first rinsed it well...
