  1. Alfa GTA
    I was considering getting a steering lock for some added extra visual security but then wondered if there was any need due to the car ( i assume ) having an immobiliser. Does anyone know if these immobilisers are any good on the GTA? or if they are over-ride-able these days or what...

    Hi Lads, As my 155 is pre 00 (1996) the local gurriers tend to fancy their hand at tryig to break into it and steal her so just to deter them is there any recommended security measures? I'm sure somebody has been in a similar situation, any ideas? Regards

    I'm an Alfa virgin ! I just love my car!!! It's a 156 but I'm having a few teething problems with it because I bought it at an auction & it has no owners manual!! The remote key doesn't work & of course without the manual I don't know the 5 digit code to activate it!!!???
  4. Alfa MiTo
    My Mito is on its way and I can't wait to get that call informing me when I can pick it up. However, I work and park in Croydon which isn't the best of places and I've learnt this week that last week there were some attempted (and possibly successful) car thefts (and even worse, car jacking) in...

    Hello everybody I have noticed this evening that my headlight bulb was burned so I tried to change it. But after I removed the cables of the bulb and I pulled out the bulb I saw that I also removed the security “metallic ring (the one that has attached the safety for the bulb). I tried a lot...
  8. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Is it me, or is there no way to secure either the glovebox or the armrest cubby hole in the new Spider with the roof down? I had the roof and windows down today, so when I parked up (as an experiment) I enabled the alarm, waited two minutes then tried to open the door. Glad to say that the...

  10. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi I'm just about to buy a GTV 2005 2.0 JTS (I did post about it earlier) Now my latest question is... security. It has an alarm fitted, factory fitted I guess, however I did see what appers to be two ultra sonic detectors fitted to the windscreen pillers, would that be normal? Plus would any...

  12. Alfa 164 & 166
    My car has these stickers in the front windows and a code etched onto them - at the factory I think, must be all 166's? Anyway - is it likely they will hold the Sat Nav code for my car?

    Does anyone know an alarm fitter within West or even South Yorks (Doncaster if south) as I have a new one but the suppliers wont do fitting! Cheers Chris
  14. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I know it comes with an immobiliser but is there an alarm too? I get the flashing lights when opening/closing using the key fob but when I open the boot using the key afterwards I expected the alarm to go off and got nothing. Is there one fitted that has maybe been disabled?
  15. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, I've had to swap my Alpine stereo out of my 156 and replace it with the original unit. However, it needs a code and I don't know what it is. I asked Sidlows about resetting it and they wanted £120! Obviously I'm not going to take them up on their offer. Anyone know how to reset this...

    My two new Dobermans - only 10 weeks old so they are still apprentices. Here they are sharpening their teeth - I am sure my classics are in safe hands now - that's if they don't decide to eat them of course.:eek:
  17. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi folks, Ive a bit of a terrible habbit of fearing the worst when it is anything to do with my pride and joy - my Alfa... With the added attraction to the "no-gooders" of my shiney new Alfa alloys, I suppose it is only right for me to secure them as best I can with a set of lock nuts? Would...
  18. Alfa 155
    Would it be possible to bypass the security code? hehe just a thought :D
  19. General Alfa Discussion
    After finding out more about alarm and key codes and lack of information cards, I though it was about time I'd try to get the alarm on the 155 working again. Success, my local dealer telephoned my to say the the alarm and key code for my 1997 155 had been logged! :cool: They will send me a...
