  6. Supercharge the Brera or save up for 4C?

    General Alfa Discussion
    Right so like many of you I have been fantasising about a 4C to replace the Brera as a track day car.

  10. How to save my 166

    Alfa 164 & 166
    Had a call from alfamania regarding my 166, the verdict is that the valves and cylinders have bent and are basically messed up. Turns out that the cambelt looked new but the idlers had not been replaced when the belt was done, I can't imagine why the previous owner hadn't had this done. So...
  11. Save my wifes license!

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Which speed trap detector would you recomend?, i think GPS/Laser/Radar is required , had a quick look around and the snooper for around £130 seems ok, I have given up asking her to slow down/pointing out there's a time and a place etc, currently shes on 6 points so I think a detector might help.
