  1. Dashboard Light - Silly Question

    Alfa Giulietta
    I am going to ask a question that I am sure has an obvious answer. The amber light (circle with arros pointing in) showing where the gear indicator arrows appear. What does it mean? Can not find it in owners manuals anywhere. At first I thought it was an ice warning light. Realised it is not...
  2. Car name quiz. Probably silly.

    General Motoring Discussion
    Bank holiday coming up, so time for a car quiz. Years back, we had a silly game on AO that was a play on car names. Given many new cars have been launched since, it could be fun to revive it. It kinda went like this: Limited edition Alfa coupe? A rarer Brera. Porsche for a farmer? That’ll be...
  3. Silly question - anyone got an old 75 v6 wreck/donor sitting around they don't need?

    Alfa 75, RZ, SZ
    I'm still very much in the embryonic stage of doing anything, but I've got plans to convert a LHD 116 Giulietta to RHD and shove a 3.0 Busso in it. But to do that I'm going to need a fair few parts off a dead 75 v6 (2.5 or 3.0, auto or manual). I've already got a nice 2.5 transaxle and converted...
  4. silly dispstick Q

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello all, I was trying to check my oil levels (after about 2000km/1250miles) and after checking the dispstick if found that oil was only visible on one side of the dipstick (side closer to engine), other side was practically dry. Is this normal for a 147 2.0??
  5. Bloke at work selling a 145QV at a silly price

    General Alfa Discussion
    I'm almost afraid to let you lot know, since I might be selling mine soonish. It's a 98R, Proteo red, just had belts and variator done, got air-con. 89k miles. wants £2395 for it. If anyone is interested, let me know and I'll pass on details. Don't expect mine to be this cheap when I sell it...
  6. Have I done something silly ?????

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Can't see it's any nastier than brake cleaner on the seals and stuff. And any that's left will be very small amounts. Were the pistons in good enough nick to re-use, or had all the chrome gone?
  7. Silly me..... (rear wiper)

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT

  12. Silly remark on the Display

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    The "multifunctional display" behind the steering wheel doesn't seem to display any special RDS characters: on the Blaupunkt radio display you can see < > ? ' and other characters in RDS messages, on the dash the don't show. :confused: Isn't this weird? Anyway, just a topic filler wink
  13. Silly Question no2

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Giving my baby its wash and brush up the other day I noticed that all the windows in the car are all made by Sekurit bar the front passenger door, which has a Pilkington logo on it. Was it a change in supplier at the factory with a lot of passenger windows left over or was my car damaged in...
  14. Silly Question No1

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    When I first got my 147 I went out to play with all the lights and stuff in the dark and thought my front fog lights weren't working. I hadn't realised that what I thought were the fogs were of course the front indicators and what were the indicators were the fogs! I always thought that fog...
