  1. Oh the shame!

    Alfa 164 & 166
    Sitting at a busy MOT test centre, in an Alfa that refused to start,in the middle of a test. Waiting on th AA to come and sort me out..... You would think that breaking down at a place full off car mechanics would be an ideal situation......apparently not......... I can just hear them all...
  2. Name and Shame!

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Two companies I used recently deserve a mention for their very poor service! 1) Bigg Red - Brake Specialist (supposedly) sent off my Alfa callipers to them for the full Monte! £250 total refurbishment, waited three weeks ok....had them fitted then....call hmm problem with your brakes, huh? they...

    Alfa 33, Sud & Sprint
    to save blocking up the boxermeet thread with drivel about the weekends handbag throwing, i thought i'd post here the outcome. easier to delete the whole thread rather than posts ;) it seems the thread i started "for sale/wanted chat" which would allow folks to find out if a part was suitable...
  11. Oh the shame..

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Recently I have seen a 04 plate black Gtv parked up on a busy street in my home town Bedford. I was curuious who the owner was but didn't so far find out. Yesterday, driving past in the dark I noticed some signwriting across the back window - odd.. Today in gold (yes GOLD !) lettering across...

  14. It's a shame but I'm having to re-brand

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    With less than 8 months left on my current PCH deal left, I am starting to consider my options for next year. I currently have a 159 TI which I love as much today as the day I picked it up from Mangoletsi. I would dearly love the same again but this time as a sportwagon, but that now looks...
  15. I hang my head in shame...

    Alfa 164 & 166
    On a recent journey from Birmingham to Tunbridge Wells I achieved 30.5mpg. Miles of pesky 50mph contraflows plus poor weather made me go slow. This is so embarrassing. I will try harder/drive harder.

  17. Replacement parts: such a shame

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    So, I've replaced the clutch slave cylinder in my car with a new one... £50 part, easy to fit so I saved myself £80 labour (I didn't shop around though) The old part failed due to a torn rubber boot (possibly from rubbing on the fluid pipe, so check yours isn't rubbing...), which allowed grit...
  18. Shame about that dent

    Alfa 164 & 166
    Alfa Romeo : 166 3.0 Super Lusso Manual Sat Nav ( Dec 2000 "x") But top marks to the vendor for not hiding it.
  19. Name and shame your dealership

    Alfa MiTo
    Having read a few threads on the forum, it appears that on an overall experience, everyone seems to be getting great if not excellent service from their Alfa dealers. It's great to be in good hands so I would like as many people as possible to tell us about their experience, whether it is...
  20. Shame on you...

    Republic of Ireland
    Hello all. Driving home today on the Ballysimon road today in Limerick and passed a black 02 156 with Audi-esque fairy lights on the front....it looked horrible and took the rakish look off the front of his/her 156. Pete
