However the clutch has started slipping so it looks like big expenditure on the way. I Have looked at changing it but there...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    My lovely little Spider JTS 2.2 has always had this little habit of telling me to belt up even when the seat belt is done up. Now it's an annoying pain in the rear. I'm sure somewhere on the forum there is an answer but can someone tell me how to disconnect the alarm. I can put up with being...

    South Africa
    Sad this was my dream car and paid good money for it 2 years ago (R140 000-00). Family now dictates we need a car with 4 doors and I can't afford to keep the GT.

  17. Time to get rid of the Alfa!

    General Alfa Discussion
    Not really, but what if you had to? If you had absolutely no choice, and had to trade in the Alfa what would you replace it with? You have to pick a comparable car in terms of value so no Astons etc allowed. Me, I'd have a Vectra SRI V6, in fact I nearly bought one once.
