    As I'm about to have my brakes upgraded I thought I'd take the advice of one of the forum members and buy the braided brake pipe kit from Autodelta and have it fitted at the same time. However, after finding that they want to charge me £15 postage I think I'll not bother. I'm sorry but £15 is an...

    Heard a tractor having difficulty turning outside my house, went out to move my 147 to give him more room. The tractor trailer however helpfully moved the 147 up the road while trying to rip off the rear quarter panel.:cry: I have legal protection insurance to recover my NCD , and excess and...

    While filling up my washer bottle, I noticed there appears to be a leak or a bloody great hole. So I thought that I'd phone up my local dealer for a quote on a new one. £85+VAT just for the part!:cry: And that's without fitting the friggin thing. Please Alfa owners I need your help, where can I...

    Well, it was good while it lasted. My 156 2.0 JTS is no more. Following some idiot pulling out of a side road last week and me banging into him, my Alfa has been written off by the insurers. Nobody was hurt and they've offered what I paid for it 6 months ago so it could be worse but it was a...

    Hi Everyone... Was pulling onto the motorway last night in my 156 V6 and suddenly lost all power. Managed to squeeze onto the hard shoulder in front of white van man, who clearly couldn't see the significance of hazard warning lights. Checked under the bonnet... cam belts intact... breath...

  7. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I’ve recently purchased an immaculate ‘99 spider, but endured the shock of a lifetime yesterday when Alfa Aid in Maidenhead were fixing a minor glitch on the electric roof - they decided to check the rest of the car on a ramp and informed me my suspension bushes were shot and had worn the rear...
  8. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Many of you will know how noisy the P7000s are on 17s, well some kind soul (hooligan) decided it would be fun to wedge a selection of screws against my two rear tyres, which of course did what the miscreant wanted and slow punctured both tyres and rendered them unfixable. Little did he/she know...

    Bought a 166 off Ebay, http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=4544215911&category=9834 Sent £200 up via wire transfer and now the guy isn't answering his phone/responding to e-mails. Ebay has sent us an e-mail after we sent the money saying he's dodgy, don't deal with him but by...

    I guess the imminent arrival of the Brera also means the imminent death of the GTV. :( Having seen a couple of GTVs today,I was reminded how well the GTV has weathered it`s near decade in existence.Lets hope the Brera still looks as good in 2015.

    This is the poor 155 that will be sent to the great parts bin in the sky. She is bravely donating her mirrors, engine, wheels and seats to a newer model. Sad day but no way of registering her as she was abandoned by some uncaring dutch woman, left to rot in a garage for 2 years. RIP. :(

    I just thought i would tell you all about the silver Alfa 156 tourer 2.0 ts with a guy that thought he could drive, but found out the guy behind him in a 155 2.0 ts reading his A.R.O.C badge in the rear window could drive much better and thus he soon saw what a 155 rear end looked like. :D...

    Just been looking at insurance for my 147, filled in all the details etc. The Reg came up as a 2L selespeed with a Quote, so i went back and changed it to manual 2L and they added an extra tenner on to the quote! How can they justify that? I know it takes more concentration to drive a manual...

    RIP Franchorchamps... My heart is bleeding :( Just heard on the news that Spa-franchorchamps is removed from the 2003 Formula1 calendar..The end of a legendary race, due to banning tobacco advertising..I don't want to start a discussion over whether or not tobacco advertising should be banned...

    Read some interesting comments looking through past post regarding uniqueness of Selespeed. Anyone driven a Smart? I own one and the transmission is exactly the same as Selespeed. I couldnt believe how identical it was when I test drove the 147. The central 'gear'lever operates exactly as the...
