  1. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    There is currently advertised on Car and Classic, a stunning GT - with a glorious, shiny intake pipe. I rather cheekily messaged the seller - apologising, as I did not want to buy his car, just to ask where he bought the pipe, so I, too, could have one on my GT. Well, maybe understandably, the...
  2. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Morning all. For my 1st post I am asking the advice of the great and the good of AO. I recently purchased a 147 twin spark 2004 along with my 14 yr old son to work on as a project. It is a fundamentally sound car(checked by my local motorsport garage prior to purchase) with only 2 owners and...

    A really outstanding example which I had a really good look around. Whoever owns it is certainly keeping it looking pristine, anyone here? :):

    Spent some quality time with the 147 about two weeks ago, and tested my hand at bringing the colour out nicely without swirls and such. This was the result.

    Four step guide to getting a great set of shiny red calipers for your loved Alfa; 1) Clean off rust and any flaky material with wire brush. 2) Clean off area with brake cleaner. 3) Mask off 4) Apply two coats of Halfords Red Caliper paint (with a brush, not spray can version). Dry in between...
  6. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    A few pics of the lovely new exhaust made for me by Project Stainless in Plymouth. Absolutely delighted with the quality and the noise it makes. Lovely deep bass but not too much volume :) Anybody in the southwest wanting a new system give these guys a shout.

    Sort of. My pride and joy. Isn't everyone's favourite colour, but as I get older I quite enjoy 'tame'.

  9. Alfa GTA
    Hi guys, I've decided to sell my beloved 147 GTA. This really is a very nice example, so nice that I have had a real headache deciding to let go or not. However as the new year arrives I've decided to get my priorities in order and get a car that I can teach my wife to drive in and clear some...

    I bought this cam cover to turn into a mirror or just hang up in my garage but it seems too good for that, if anyone in interested for their car let me know. I'm not sure what car it's from other than is has SF 2376 stamped inside and what looks like a date stamp of 78. I also have a brand new...

  14. Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Just had to get a new windscreen after a great big stone nearly smashed through on the M25 the other day. £100 excess but the bloke from Autoglass did a great job in about 30 minutes. Nice and shiny with no scratches. It's got to make me go faster, surely?? First windscreen replacement I've...

  18. Alfa GTA
    I have been lamenting my bad choice in rear brake disc for a while on these here forums. I have grooved and dimpled rears which whir like a mad thing. I got a little over excited with the buy it now button on the MTec brakes site last week and now they are here! Which along with Will...

  20. Engines (TS, JTS, JTD & V6)
    A simple question, are all the V6's equipped with the same lovely, but easily rusting shiny pipes? I have a spare set and don't wanna waste my time polishing them up :lol: Cheers Sam
