  1. Similar exhaust parts 147 + GT 1.9 JTDm

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Does anyone know if a 147 exhaust system will fit onto a GT, please? Mine's a 2006 GT and I need a back box but am wondering if 147 full system will fit. Thanks in advance - Ken
  2. K&N or similar air filter

    Alfa Giulia
    I've had a search but can't find any threads, so does anyone know if there is a K&N drop in filter or similar available for the Veloce? I can't find one on K&Ns website, but wondered if anyone else does a similar one ?
  3. How similar is the GT's interior to the 147 or 156?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi guys! I just brought a used 2005 GT 1.9 JTD with low mileage, but I noticed that my window control buttons are a bit loose and I'd like to change them. My question is, am I safe to search for these kind of things in other models (147/156) or do I have to get one specifically made for the...
  4. Discovery vs 156 GTA SW - surprisingly similar!

    General Motoring Discussion
    Having had the Discovery 4 now for a little while, it surprises me how similar the vehicles are! Air bag light on - check Chomps through front suspension components - check MPG - around mid 20's - check Cambelt needs doing - check Looks good - check (in my eyes) Practical - check Have that...
  5. GQV and 4C - so different, but so similar

    Alfa Giulietta
    So, as a result of buying a new GQV from them last October, Beechdales invited me to have an hour in a 4C today as part of their promotional weekend. Not sure how many on here have driven both? I never thought I'd get the chance to drive a 4C, so jumped at the chance. The engine sounds so...
  6. 147 or GT - similar price, which one?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    About to buy either 2004 GT or 2008 147 both with 170,000km on clock and are diesels, basically same price. Really not sure which one to get, point me in the right direction please?
  7. Looking for Horseshoe alloys or similar

    Alfa 164 & 166
    Hello - Just wondered if anyone has any Horsey-shoe alloys knocking about they want to part with please. I think I'm a bit limited as to what else will fit on my 166. Happy to travel around 200 miles from S.Wales :-) (Well, happy is a lie, but would..)
  8. mad idea similar are the 147 & 156?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I keep looking at the 147 and the 156 and thinking that the 156 front bumper might go on a 147. Whaddya reakon? Or have I been at the cheese from under the fridge again? :)
  9. Discounted (or similar)

    General Motoring Discussion
    Has anyone here bought a car thru this or any other type of discount car dealers? My neighbour bought his 2015 Fiesta ecoboost last year saving approx £5k compared with Bristol street motors.Ive just specced a 2016 fiesta titanium x ecoboost 1.0T powershift (for the better half) and again saved...
  10. G 1.6JTDM K&N or similar

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi, Looking for some advice around fitting a K&N or similar to my G. I have read about issues with grit and oil potentially damaging the engine and sensors so not sure if I am def going to go ahead and do it. I have seen a lot of kits on ebay but none specifically for the G. Assuming that I...
  11. Chips away or similar

    General Alfa Discussion
    Any recommendations for stone chip and scuff repair? I had been considering getting the usual GTA scuffs on the bumper sorted, and this has been heightened by the fact I came across a psycho in a VW pickup on Friday. Not content with overtaking in 30 zone and nearly having more than one head...
  12. Similar spec to 147 Q2 - petrol equivalent?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I currently own a 147 Q2 Sport but I can't get on with the diesel engine. It's not getting me enough fuel economy to warrant the lack of fantastic revving, responsiveness and noise. Problem is, I love the look/spec of my Q2. So which petrol 147 has the nearest spec to the Q2? I'm talking about...
  13. 159 similar to vauxhall insignia

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    ive just done a service on my friends 2009 1.9 insignia and was surprised to find they share a very similar layout underneath. oil filter was the same and in the same stupid place, more importantly his subframe didnt look too healthy either at the front. his tracking was also out and had...
  14. GTV similar parts

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi folks, I have a V6 GTV and have just been offered a twin spark for parts. Other than the obvious panels and exterior, what other parts are interchangeable? In particular the front and rear suspension parts. There has been much talk here about the price of rear spring pans etc. I would like...
  15. Cheapest place for 19" TI alloys or similar?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Desperately want to upgrade my 17" brera style alloys on my 159 right now. Looking for a set with tyres.... Any ideas guys? Thankyou
  16. Is the Q2 or similar diff worth it?

    South Africa
    I would like an honest opinion on the diff... Is it really worth the extra cash? Take into account I want to use all available cash to pay off the 4C quicker. So am I getting bang for buck if I fit Q2 or similar diff?
  17. Torque software or similar and interface for 159 JTDM

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I have one of the ELM327 Bluetooth devices and a free Torque app on my Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 tablet. Plugged in the device to my diagnostics socket (it lights up to show it is powered), switched on the tablet and car ignition, selected Torque and I got a message saying it was connected to my ECU...
  18. Power problems / Loss of power (similar to Turbo lag)

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I'm getting a rather odd power issue with my GT (Diesel) It was an on and off fault, but now it's apparent all the time. When the accelerator is pressed (and the car is in gear) im restricted to what feels like a fifth of the power and barely get any acceleration at all. I can even bury the...
  19. Has anyone else ever had a similar issue?

    General Motoring Discussion
    Hi guys, this thread is not about an Alfa but since Fiat uses the same parts for its cars i thought it would be okay to make a thread here about the issue on my 500. Ever since i bought my car i had a problem with my usb port. It never worked properly. Sometimes as i used it to listen to music...
  20. thought it was a wheel bearing - buckled wheel noise similar?
