  1. Console Rubbing

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I have noticed that I am getting scuff/rubbing marks on my centre console. This appears to be from sliding the front seats foward to allow passengers in the back. The thing is its not that often I have people in the back so if its getting marked with minimal use what's it going to be like with...

  3. Whining / Rubbing Clutch Noise

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Every now and then I get a whining / rubbing noise from the clutch when I'm pulling away. Main place it happens is the access ramp to the car park I use for work, so low speed and on a slight incline. Doesn't seem to happen all the time, but it still concerns me as does every new strange noise I...

  7. Rubbing middle console.

    Alfa GTA
    Does anyone with an Alfa Romeo 147 GTA have a problem with the middle console rubbing against the seat? It has finally got on my nerves and I can not put up with it any longer. This should be covered under warranty shouldn't it? They tried to fix it once with a quick fix patch in between the...
  8. Colour-coding 156 bumper rubbing strips?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I've just bought my first Alfa, a '00 red 156 1.8 (for a bargain price), and am in love with it.
