  3. Alfa 164 & 166
    Hello and sorry for my english but it's not my language. Try as I can. I noticed today that I don't have reverse lights. The bulbs are ok, today the lights jumped several times. I heard that there is a sensor or someone has a picture or diagram where to look? Is there a socket on the gear shift...
  4. General Alfa Discussion
    With the 4C being cancelled, and the 8C and GTV being dropped from the product road map, the car media all over the internet are proclaiming Alfa is on its dying legs and are on their way to be being flushed down the toilet of history just like Lancia. Who knows at best they may end up like...
  5. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Howdy guys! After a lot of looking around, I found a full aluminum gear knob for my Alfa GT with the 6 speed manual silver scratchy knob. I have no idea where to start with the removal? Do I need to pull? Twist? Twist and Pull? I'm attaching some pictures to my find on eBay and the old one...
  6. Alfa Giulietta
    Hi All, My Giulietta QV that I just bought (48,000kms) has a weird whine/ tick noise when accelerating/ gaining revs, when driving and in park. It’s quite noticeable and doesn’t at all sound like a standard tick from injectors etc. It gets higher pitch with higher revs. Any ideas? The timing...
  7. Alfa Giulietta
    Hi Alfa guru's I made the mistake of leaving one of those tree air fresheners on my air vent and it seems in the 40+ degree heat days we've been experiencing in Sydney the past weeks its allowed to oil/fragrance to expand naturally due to the heat except it did that on the plastic/matte trim on...
  8. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I know I'm opening a can of worms but I'm really trying to figure out what would spring rates would be the best for track dedicated Alfa Romeo 156 2.0 Twin Spark. So it's only about performance on a race track. I've checked Twin Spark cup (racing cup for TS alfas in Vic and NSW states in...
  9. Alfa Giulietta
    I live in UAE, my G has 12000km and I park it outdoors during my office hours, temperature fluctuates from 28 to 42 during day time. Today I got in to the car and there was a visible gap above the infotainment screen (trying to attach a pic). I am very worried, should this be a question of...

Later wont start. If start the engine the errors are flashing. Engine sound really bad. Battery and ECU...
  11. Introduce Yourself
    Hi guys I have actually owned my first Alfa for a year now and I can honestly say I have never enjoyed (loved) a car this much. After years of owning German motors thinking they were the DG, I opted for a change. I wanted something a little different and my brother, who works in the automotive...

  14. Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider

  17. The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Looking for a nice RHD S2 Spider, fed up of viewing poorly repaired (and some dangerous!) cars out there. Must have excellent condition hood, body and engine. Not after a 10/10 car, but a good honest one that maybe needs a bit of TLC in other areas. I've just retired and need something to...
  18. General Alfa Discussion
    Hi, I took my cousin on a quick tour of Northern Italy over last weekend(4days), and drove down to the massive Mirafiori factories in Torino, in the hope of visiting the new FCA Heritage Hub, but after long chat with the guards, no entry yet to the public :disappointed: . So next best thing...
  19. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hey guys. 2 days ago I bought this horrid Alfa Romeo 147 for pennies as it's seen better days. I bought it for the same amount it's worth in scrap, don't mind spending money on it to make it nice. So when I initially inspected the car the car sounded like a diesel. I suspected it was a bad...
  20. Introduce Yourself
    I was never a big fan of Alfa Romeo mostly because they never had a very good reputation but I came across a second hand Alfa 147 in desperate need of some loving care that somehow stole my heart. IT is now my everyday car and will not stop restoring until I manage to get it back to showroom...
