  1. Have you seen this rubbish?

  2. 156 track left after hit a rubbish bag

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    A week ago I hit a rubbish bag on the road going around 50 KM/h in the right front corner of my 156, the bag must have been filled with books, I can see papers all over the road, but the bag was too dense to be just sheets, there was a loud bang and I felt the right front of the car jump up...

  4. Quadrifoglio Collision Warning (is rubbish)

    Alfa Giulia
    Has anyone else had issues with their collision warning system? Mine goes off nearly every day! I took it to the dealer and he says there's nothing wrong with it - but I think it's just too sensitive (and stupid) for such a fast car. If I'm crossing a roundabout and there are any cars cutting...
  5. Sound from stick BY radio is rubbish

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, I'm new to this forum. I've a 04 GT and since I got it 2.5 years ago the sound on the steep is absolute rubbish. I have to crank it up to about 30 just to hear it. Does anyone know if this is normal or reckon I need to replace it? Thanks Cathal
  6. Alfa TS = FUN, Stereo System = Rubbish!

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    After an enjoyable ride through traffic on my Alfa 147 ts today, using 2nd and 3rd gears effectively, I actually shouted out loud "I love this car!". Reminds me a bit of the fun I used to have screaming up hills in my old M5 :) However, is it just me, or is the stereo CD system on my Alfa just...
  7. Bosch spark plugs in TS- rubbish

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Bought a '06 1.6 156 lately. Got it running on LPG and when put under a little bit of pressure, the dreaded Engine Management Control Error kept coming up. On petrol the error didn't show. Had feared lots of things but decided first to go with plugs. It has 144k kilometres on the clock. The...
  8. Rubbish bumper sticker quotes

    General Motoring Discussion
    I was following/stuck behind a Land Rover defender today and he had a sticker on the back saying 'Your crash stops here' which is kind of funny in a way that the car will stop there but the energy from the crash will be transferred to the his spine. Any way anyone know or actually have any funny...
  9. Mat Fitting Clips - rubbish!

    Alfa Giulietta
    Ordered a set of Alfa mats the other day, and when screwing in the plastic fixings, two of them just sheared in half. I was only screwing them in by hand after making a pilot hole in the carpet first. Am I just a ham-fisted idiot, or have others had the same problem? Luckily, got the driver's...
  10. My air con is rubbish

    Alfa GTA
    Ok so I know that the condenser is on it's last legs and will be replaced when I do the whole engine out in the next month or so. Managed to stop the leak with a can of aircon stop leak we bodged in 2 weeks ago. I regassed it again last night and it still had pressure and refigerant in it. It is...
  11. The Alfa GT - slightly rubbish?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I have a 58 plate GT Cloverleaf which I have owned for 2 years and 6 months...FSH and just 50k miles... It certainly looks nice on the outside, every time I wash it I don't regret buying it at all, the car looks stunning. Even when you sit inside, look at the full leather interior the car...
  12. Are My Spring pans rubbish?

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    After a great struggle to remove the spring pans off the car I am breaking to serve my own it was to my dismay that when removing the springs and the plastic bush that another hole appeared to the side of the original, both Sides! Time, effort wasted! Is it salvageable or does it go with the car...
  13. Rubbish brakes on 156 V6

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello all. Just had new front brakes fitted - pads and discs and the braking performance is bordering on scary! (Even after bedding new brakes in for a couple of hundred miles). My wifes' Focus well out perfoms my 156 on braking. Has anyone got any suggestions to improve the braking? I'd be...

    General Motoring Discussion
    I just got the bad news about our company run around, a Citreon C4 2006 with 83k on the clock. (abused by everyone) Its just come back from service/MOT, OK it passed the MOT (again) but has an advisory now that there is a little wear on the inner track rods! Hell we only just had a new battery...

  17. Gtv brakes are rubbish?

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Just got a gtv v6. It's been to Clovertech for a full check up and any little ( and some not so little) issues sorted. The brakes feel very uninspiring. Is this a gtv trait or worthy of a revisit? When I say uninspiring I mean about 3/4 inch Tavel before any real effect and having to really...
