  15. Why is Alfa Romeo showing so little ?

    Alfa Giulia
    When Porsche or BMW shows a new car, its like an information overload. All specs are laid bare, all photos of the interior and exterior are available and all versions showed. So we got a few key stats of the Giulia (510hp 3.9sec to 100km/h) but not much apart from that. What is mpg ? what is...

    After 'falling' into one of our many potholes in the UK, (in my 2011 Giulietta 1.4 TB Veloce) no damage done, I notice around the same time the outside temperature reading on the dash only showed - - . - C Could this been down to the quite harsh bump or the temperature sensor being dislodged...
  19. Brera Sensor Showing Wrong Temp

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I think this is a fairly common problem on these cars but my Brera has occasionally started showing the wrong temperature on the dash readout, usually 1 degree, despite the weather being much warmer. Is there anything I can try to fix this or is it an expensive garage job?
  20. Battery Light Showing.

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
