  1. Some planned upgrades

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello, So I've had my 3.2 V6 GT since November and she's just sailed through her MOT on the first go, woo hoo! Not bad for 82k miles on the clock. Since we are all stuck in quarantine hell, I'm thinking of planning out what to do with her and need some advice. Here's my rough plans: Bodywork...
  2. Reset service

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I am trying to reset the service interval but cant get in to the Siemens ecu for some reason. Did reset it 3 years ago with Multiecuscan, so i am puzzled why i cant now. Drivers for the LPT/C0M poort are installed correct and i can connect to the cars ECU and read it out etc. I must say that i...
  3. Giulia Petrol - Oil Service mileage question

    Alfa Giulia
    Fellow Alfa owners and mechanic friends, I have my Veloce booked in for its (first) 9K service on the 8th November which is when its convenient for me with my work schedule. It now looks like I am going to be hitting 10K by the time I get to the service date, can anyone forsee any issues with...
  4. So it didn't need oil, after all

    Alfa Stelvio
    Stelvio 2.0 petrol, 22 months old, 12,150 miles. Just spent an anxious week after the low engine oil warning light came on, and the central digital display showed zero oil. Naturally, I quickly topped up, carefully, in increments (1.5 litres in all) and re-checked. No change to the warnings...
  5. Enormous cost of second service, Leasys say it has to be main dealer!

    Alfa Giulia
    Does anyone have any tips? Leasys (PCH) say the 2nd sevice on my Giulia Specialie has to be at a main dealer and that makes it £500. Has anyone got it cheaper? Or the 18in tyres for that matter (£450 fr, £500 rr)? Any advice appreciated! It's a bit much and is putting me off getting another one.
  6. 55k mile service

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Anyone know the spare parts place in North Manchester, Alfa Specialists I think they are (Rawtenstall or thereabouts) and roughly what price / whether they do a 55k mile service? And anyone had the pleasure themselves - for that or similar mileage service, how do they rate? :cheeky: Graeme
  7. Time for a service

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I've got 58 plate ***** romeo 159 on 140000 miles and it's ready for a service. Obviously I don't want to pay for the labour as it usual cost more the parts so the question is what do I need and where can I get the parts from and is it easy to do? Thanks
  8. Service / Warranty question

    Alfa Stelvio
    Hi, Was wondering, do you have to return to the dealer you purchased the car from for a warranty issue. Problem I have is the dealer I got the car from is quite a way away from me and is about 3.5 hours of travelling on public transport if I leave the car overnight... also when I tried to ask...
  9. Service Follow Up Qs

    Alfa Giulia
    Had the first service today (9k miles) and have a few q's: I was told 'the software was updated' - Where would I check for s/w version and where would I find what was included in this version? I asked for my tyre pressure to be checked as I noticed a couple were at 30 psi (according to the...
  10. Why Cant All Dealers do Service like Palmers Hemel Hempstead?

    Alfa Giulia
    I have just had my 36,000 mile service done by Palmers Hemel Hempstead and I have to say they were very good. I dropped my car off and we did a full walk around to check for any damage so we knew the condition of the car before they touched it. Same thing with the hire car. I received a video...
  11. Post 2018 Giulietta service light

    Alfa Giulietta
    Sorry if this seems vague. I bought a new 2.0 JTD Giulietta in July 2018 and took it for its first service last week. I live in France and the car was supplied through my nearest AR franchise in Angers 50km away. As my franchise dealer has already demonstrated their uselessness, I took the car...

  15. €1200 for timing belt and full service?

    Republic of Ireland
    Hi all, I was quoted €1200 by Grandon's in Cork for a timing belt change and full service on the Giulietta. To be honest, I nearly died of shock when I heard that figure. Sounds extremely high to me. It's the 1.6 multijet engine so it's not like I'm bringing in a super rare beast, the same...

  20. Eibach online shop poor service

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    This is a bit of a rant, but also more consumer advice. Now, I don't want to sound like too much of a broken record... But is it really so hard to just buy a ****ing product and have a company send it to me? After my previous troubles with Europerformance. co . uk, this time I purchased a...
