  1. Long shot, any clue as to what this is

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Managed to drop a thermostat bolt down the hole next to the bonnet release catch, while searching I found this... ..obviously dropped down the same hole as my bolt, as there's nothing I can see in the radiator area that looks like it's missing a cover. The only reference I can find to a...
  2. Worth a shot i suppose

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Caught a pothole on Friday and it is beyond repair:( Spoke with veloces etc but like autolusso they appear to be closed until the 2nd I think this question may be rhetorical but has anyone got a 17" multispoke alloy for sale (its for a GT so ET35 offset) Cheers
  3. Shot in the dark.....

    Alfa 164 & 166
    The cold weather hasn't been good to the 166......frozen handbrake has now meant no handbrake because I was going to be late so the old V6 did its stuff and dragged those rear wheels round overpowering the pitiful handbrake and rendering it more useless than it was! The worst thing has been the...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Always look on the bright side of life....! My Alfa is driving me insane... A brief history of the problem: developed a ticking noise from the diesel injectors, but not certain that tappets had ever been shimmed, so booked in at Longstones in Cannington, Somerset. On the way there, the engine...

    Motoring Images
    So, last night she went. A complicated and delayed sales process but she did depart, and before she did the heavens did part. Goodbye 159 Ti.

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I have in the For sale section, my phase 2 GTV. High mileage, but car was running well until the head gasket decided to give up on me last week.

    You never know whats laying around... would anyone happen to have a pair of Cibie Mounting Rings to suit 5 3/4 Cibie's ? They are listed on Tweeks website but I'm told they are no longer manufactured.
  17. A long shot.....

    United Arab Emirates
    ..I am looking for some wheels for my car, and would prefer to get something from the speedline, OZ, team dynamics or original alfa ranges... 155's have a not-so-common 98 PCD, 4-bolt pattern. At the moment I have two sets of wheels that both have irregularities that make balancing difficult...
  18. Odd crop from a 159 shot at the weekend

    Motoring Images
    For some reason I really like this shot - very abstract when cropped. There's nothing wrong with it - it is perfectly in focus and just has high reflection and depth of field. Original photo also attached.

  20. Thrust bearing shot /

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    When starting my 147 there is a whistling sound from the gearbox side of the engine compartment.Once the clutch is depressed this sound becomes louder and when operating temp is reached the sound is almost gone. Could this be due to a worn thrust bearing?
