I managed to get the Navtec to start up and show on the screen of my 3.0 year 2000 166. I went to current location and the screen was blue, I zoomed out and I found I was not in fact in North Wales but just off the coast of Holland. This really does not help when planning a route or help in...
ok peeps, Ali has planned a run to the gower for us, deputy number two has done a fab job too....see below,:cool:
Well some of us have been on convoys to Brecon, Newport, Bristol, Worcestershire, but now it's the Gower Peninsula's turn to welcome a whole bunch of Alfa Romeos.
Hello! After months of searching for a car for our little family, that would give us the space we needed but still able to put a smile on our faces when driving...we found the perfect motor!! An Alfa 156 1.8 TSpark in Cosmos Blue on a W plate, one owner from new! Since me and the wife have been...
Wife bought a 147 used Selespeed 3 years ago.
The missus knows less than me about cars, and I know nothing. But when she got in...well yknow that red glow reflecting off the chrome door plates?? That sloping bonnet and the Alfa badge?
After a brief round the block, she signed up for crippling...
I am quite a keen sea angler and haven't been out on a boat for a few years.
I was wondering if anyone goes out on wrecking and general sea fishing trips. If they have a spare place or two me and a friend would be quite keen to come along.
Hi Guys, may be a silly question but has anyone been troubled by ground clearance on a 156 GTA going on and off North Sea Ferries. Last few years used my GTV6 and okay, but the 156 looks pretty low especially for the internal ramps on the different levels on the Ferries?
Your cheap(ish) MAF is here. :thumbs:
The tube is designed to fit Twin Spark intakes but the sensor is identical, so you just swap the sensors over after you've taken the annoying security screws out of the tubes.
Absolute bargain compared to this. :D
I'm assuming as a proud alfa owner/admirer that you are a person of impeccable taste? Good. Then read on... (hopefully it'll help explain my surreal title!)
I was gazing absent-mindedly out of the window today, as you do, day-dreaming about the 159 TI that I'm hoping to order in the next month...
OK, it's not quite the Stelvio pass, but last weekend we took the 159 down to the NSW South Coast. Fitzroy Falls, Kangaroo Valley, Cambewarra Mountain, Jamberoo Mountain, the Sea Cliff Bridge and Macquarie Pass. Some wonderful driving roads, and opportunities to give V8 Holdens a surprise on the...
Went for my first surf of '09 today. A bright clear and sunny day here on the Isle of Wight :cool:
Here is the car parked at Compton Farm. Windows and Doors locked incase NWA come knocking.
This is a fairly secret spot that not many people know about, sadly it was pretty flat today:
Just cleaned my 156, and fitted some new grill trimmers, and blacked out the chrome bars either side of the grill. Couldn't help a quick run to the other end of the villlage for a photo or two.
Adrian Flux wanted some photos of the car for the agreed value policy, so I decided to give her a flick over and get some photos taken - got a few more than they need!
Got the new exhaust and side repeaters on there, pretty pleased now i've got used to them. Funny really but every time I add...
