  2. General Motoring Discussion
    Hi all. Not sure if this will just sound like a rant but interested to know if anywhere else suffering same issues on roads, in Middlesbrough it seems like the roads are now lawless, anything goes, red lights mean the next 4 cars are OK to go through, bus lanes are for cars, don't think the...

    Hi Guys, planning on taking the Giulia for a run on some windy roads, anybody know any good routes in kent that would suit a lively QV?
  4. Alfa Giulietta
    Hi, I was looking everywhere possible to answer that question but could not find anything from owners about their experiences . So for the start, I am currently drive 07 plate Astra 1.4 ( 95hp ) but because I feel I would like to change it for something newer I've started looking around and...
  5. 4C & 4C Spider
    I've just got back from a long journey through Europe and I have come to a conclusion with the 4C. The problem isn't the car or the suspension. Its the crap UK roads. The entire journey through Europe the car was sublime, not pulling or tugging in any direction with the exception of just one...

  9. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi - my car ('99 V6) is equipped with front / rear Bilstein shock absorbers (16 inch alloys currently) and generally has a hard ride. Car feels very 'brittle'... I'm a bit surprised at this given that the roads are generally good with a smooth surface in this part of the world. It's a bit of a...
  10. Alfa 164 & 166
    "Eye don't believe it" says Pomeo. Driving to the eldest boy's yesterday I pondered with so many long gone now and there wasn't that many in the first place I was thinking about the title. Then whilst driving along in TIa the 3.2 facelift TI on a road in deepest Shettleston, Glasgow my jaw...

    A boring report, but some important work. Shockingly, you are 8 times safer on an M-Way than on a single carriageway road. But Motorways and A roads account for nearly half accidents, although only 10% of the road network. An excellent example of the joy of statistics, both facts are true...
  12. South Africa
    Last night with the first real rains of the season, I noticed that the new tyres I had put on the car are a lot better in the wet than the previous ones which were on the car when I bought it. The previous tyres were Yokohama A-Drive and they would spin on a wet road when changing into second...

    I've booked another driving holiday this time to N Ireland (my birthplace) and am looking for a good cross country run to get to the ferry - no time restraints as we're B and B'ing in Valley ready for the early ferry. Gloucester to Holyhead I was thinking Leominster, Knighton, Newtown...
  15. South Africa
    Hello boys and girls What, in your experience, are the the best roads to drive your cars on? Coastal or inland. The Best road so far that I have driven is the old road between PE and JBay, the van Staadens pass, perfect bends and curves, as well as the Maitlands road, with a perfect sea view...
  16. General Motoring Discussion
    Out of interest would anyone like to list theirs ? I'm talking of the kind of roads where you can enjoy some dramatic scenery, or equally a good spirited drive to blow the cobwebs off. I'll start this off with some of my favourites which all seem to be in the North West, I love this part of the...
