    Hi Everyone, My Alfa needs new suspension, so rather than fork out £100's for a set of oem springs, I'd love to upgrade to a set of nice shiny coilovers. The problem is insurance. I've held my driving license for under a year (I'm 29 btw), which means I get automatically refused insurance on...
  2. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi all, Bit of an unusual question. does anyone know the size of the battery tray on a V6 GTV. The story is.. I've got an LPG tank in the boot of the car which leaves very little access for the battery to be removed/fitted. I've been disconnecting the battery most nights as i've had a high...

    Well after 22 years of driving and must be around 250K miles driven got a speeding ticket through the post. I was doing 68 in a 60 zone apparently. So I am going on a speed awareness session so still no points on my licence. So every cloud and all that.... The ironic thing out of all the cars...
  4. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Eventually found Spidey under all the ice today (inside and out) and un-froze the lock to get in... but car is completely dead - no noises, no lights, nothing. Battery seems ok according to tester/charger. Have swotted up on everyone else's issues whilst munching through half a packet of...
  5. 4C & 4C Spider
    Slightly odd comparison here. Rather strange testing procedure also. Wierdest of all is the soundcheck. I've stood next to a 4C revving and believe me, they are hardly touching the throttle. No idea why. Alfa Romeo 4c vs Lotus Elise S vs Peugeot RCZ R vs Porsche Cayman - GenteMotori - YouTube
  6. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    So had a very GTV weekend this weekend. Had a long list of jobs to do, and thought I would have a good look around her. Discovered: Radiator support bracket that runs across front of car rusty as hell Lots of oil behind downpipe, looks like OS of gearbox leak Rad Fan Carrier welds broken and...
  7. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Well, I recently purchased a 156 2.4 10v JTD and have sorted out a few teething problems which I knew about before I bought it. However, in the last couple of days I kept noticing this little red light blink for half a second then vanish when accelerating, thought I was going mad at first as its...

  9. Alfa MiTo
    Driving the girlfriend home, and she got some water dropplets on her. So we were looking around to see where it came from, and the interior light on the roof on passenger side is pretty much half full of water. Couple of things 1: how the hell did it get there? B: How do i get into it to get...
  10. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Sigh. The 'animal' is in the garage again tomorrow. The current list of faults include: 1. Climate control has disappeared. Handy in this 'heat'... and mists up superbly too. 2. Driver's heated seat not working. (When I took it in last, it was the passenger's seat.... Hmm did they just...
  11. Alfa 164 & 166
    .... suddenly and without warning, in a big cloud of smoke on the M1 at 75mph. suspect - head gasket.... so....... to keep me mobile, i have picked up a lexus GS300 - 94 on an L reg. bit rough around the edges, but seems to start drive and run fine. now currently debating weather to fix and...
  12. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    She is booked in for Monday afternoon to get a tow bar fitted. Bad why? 1: It's a tow bar 2: Because I'm getting a detachable the manufacturers think, "Oh he's must have a nice car and doesn't want to ruin the looks. Lets charge an extra £100"!!!!! 3: It's costing a fortune. 4: Will be used to...
  13. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Just had a good look under the car, turns out my engine rattle is being caused by a bracket that holds the exhsut to the engine block (part 46809275). Annoyingly, I only replaced this bracket about 2 months ago. However it looks like either the manifold has bent, or the section that bolts onto...
  14. General Alfa Discussion
    ..... who will feed you a hearty helping of humble pie just as you're on top of the world and feeling invincible. In my case it was yesterday.... and it was done by this bloke in a Lotus Elise on that very twisty bit of highway (Malaysians will know this) north of Ipoh heading towards Taiping...
