  1. This is getting ridiculous now

    Alfa Giulia
    I recently read the write up in Auto Express on the long term Giulia Veloce they had in their fleet. In a nutshell they said it was a dream to drive, a beauty to behold and the car to beat in its segment. However, they then go on to criticise the infotainment selection wheel and the...
  2. Ridiculous Cancellation Charges!!

    Adrian Flux Insurance
    Just phoned adrian flux up who i have been insured with for over 4 years on the trot now to cancel my policy. Long story short i had a 159 lusso 2.4 insured and swapped it for a 156 2.4 lusso and the price stayed the same which i was happy about, i then got a 159 1.9 TI and was told my insurance...

    Volkswagen Golf GTI concept was held together by straps
  4. Ridiculous MPG!

    Alfa Giulietta
    A week ago I had topped up the tank for the 5th time and covered 850miles. Last week my MPG dropped from 29MPG urban to combined to now at 26MPG!! I spent £72 on a full tank and after covering only 150 miles, I have just over half a tank left. I am driving in Normal mode and hardly put my foot...
  5. 44 year old virgin on the ridiculous

    Introduce Yourself
    Did you know If you want to say "hello" to everyone on the planet, you would have to learn at least 2,796 languages and greet at least 6,500,000,000 people. Until such time that I am fluent in all of the above languages I am afraid a simple "Hello" will suffice. Hello all, big manly hand...
  6. Ridiculous door handle repair quote

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    My passenger door handle broke yesterday at the hinge end of my GT JTD 07. A quick search through the posts on here revealed that it is a known weak point and fairly common for Alfas. I didn't for one moment expect the Alfa approved used warranty to cover it but I still phoned the Alfa...

  8. The ridiculous price of PETROL and a guzzling Alfa what a mix!

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Topped up the Alfa today to discover the price of £1.31 ltr, this is absolutely ridiculous and I wonder what sort of price we will be paying by the end of the year? It's time we Brits stood up against these legalized crooks that sit there in government lording it over us! Not everyone wants to...
  9. Goodbye and thanks for all the fish - from the sublime to the ridiculous

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Having been thinking of a major revamp of my transport requirements recently I have taken the plunge and traded my 159 against a .................... Fiat 500 Sport! Yes really! I may come back to the fold in 12 months time if Giulietta lives up to everyones expectations but I need a change...
  10. Ridiculous

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    A work colleague came to me last week with a problem on her gtv ts, she had hesitation problems when accelerating. She took it to a garage dealership to get it checked out, they told her it's two sensors that need replacing which would cost around £500 and then three hours labour and vat on top...
  11. This is ridiculous....

    Alfa Romeo Cyprus Club
    Hello Friends! I need your opinion on this: A friend of mine has an Alfa 147 which was bought new by Demades 2 years ago... hence it's under full warranty Now it has about 40 000 KM and went for the 2nd big service last Friday. Few days before it went for service, my friend was hearing some...
  12. 147 Selespeed resale in SA – ridiculous!

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Just found out now that Alfa is prepared to trade my 2003 147 Selespeed in at only 35% it's original value. This means that it has lost value faster than what I can pay it off. It's not even 3 years old, and on 40000 km! Has anyone in South Africa been able to sell/trade-in their Selepeed at a...
  13. I've just added about 20bhp to my car, in the most ridiculous manner possible

    Poll Room
    Can you guess what I did?
  14. This is getting ridiculous....

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Ouch!! Sounds like you're having a REAL bad year! My previous best(?) was three in a year, a month apart. Insurers still find it amusing! Hope the damage isnt too bad, guess its a few dints and scratches? wrinx
