  1. General Alfa Discussion
    Lads, I have been an alfa fan for years now and own a few, the alfa sud has always been my favourite car, however I took a drive in a friends Prius and even I have to admit that the comfort, quietness and admiring glances from the ladies have made me re-think my car. I never thought I would...

    I mean, really - come on. I washed her yesterday, and after a quick jaunt on the M40 and M4 this morning, look at this filth:
  3. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Despite parking in the most Alfa-friendly parking space in the entire car park I still manage to attract idiots who open their doors straight on to mine causing dents / marks. So on the drive home from one of the above encounters over the weekend I had a "Dragon's Den" moment! Why not get...
  4. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi there, Trying to get rid of my 156. The engine's big ends have gone. Apart from that it's in good shape. Recently under sealed, nearly new tyres, all the front suspension arms done, new plugs and thermostat and 11 months left on the MOT. I tried the two nearest Alfa breakers...
  5. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I hope this against the rules or forum etiquette but I've got an ever growing list of issues which I'm hoping you can help me with! Alfa GT 2005 1.9 JTDM. Owned the car 6 months, some were present at time of sale, others aren't. I have no spare cash so I'm hoping to work out what is the most...

    I bought my QV (Oct12) from a dealer as an Alfa-Approved in February (just over 15k on the clock) absolutely love it, even if the daily drive (20m x2) is about the only exercise its been getting (yes, i've been busy - how boring, lol). I got it to replace a Mondeo diseasel that was costing me a...

    Hi, New for me will be here often
  8. Alfa 145 & 146
    No not what the kids say type of sick, my latest MOT inspection has uncovered rot and holes behind the wheel arch liners and some on the floorpan, I'm going to save her, it will cost some, but I get to keep my 17 year old 141000 mile (59000 miles on the engine) car, hopefully for some more...
  9. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    My new from birth (2002) GTA has finally come to a stop after failing an MOT just now, I have been quoted for a complete exhaust system £2500 plus VAT plus fitting CVJs are cracked; upper & lower suspension arms have excessive play. all likely to cost me £3720 plus labour! For someone from...

    :cry: Got my Brera 2.4JTDm delivered to me on Saturday evening. Only driven her three times, and she's in the garage already :( So worried I have bought a lemon. Absolutely gutted. Extensive smoke from exhaust on start up. Engine management light on. Limped home from work the other day - no...

    Hi guys, I'm having a bit of trouble with my gtv and can't seem to diagnose the problem. The car drives well, still smooth and still sounds healthy, but it's just gone slow and I have no idea why. The car used to eat up golf 6r's and the like, but after a run with a friends STOCK runx RSI...
  12. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    hi guys. alfa romeo to me is supposed to be a more higher class car with beautiful styling and decent performance. Yet every time I start the car up a get a smoke bomb coming out the exhaust. this doesn't happen all the time but it probably happens 90% of the time. if you haven't guessed all...

    Help please from you clever people ! CPU Usage is at 100% and this is being caused by svchost using 98% of the cpu. I can end task in the Task Manager and cpu usage is back to normal but of course once I start using the pc svchost kicks back in and I'm back where I started. Run CC Cleaner and...
  19. General Alfa Discussion
    Sorry I am having a mini rant. People have various cars in my office, and it understandably people have problems regardless of make or model. The reaction from others is usually, you poor thing, bad luck etc. But when you have an Alfa there seems to be some kind of sick satisfaction for...
