    At the moment I seem to get between 6.5 and 7 hours sleep every night, when I tell people this they look horrified ! How much sleep, on average, do you get each night ?

    Picked up my beautiful Giulietta Sportiva 2.0 diesel TCT today after waiting 3 months and just loving it. Amazing drive and performance compared to my Audi a3 which got written off before Xmas. Here are some pics....
  5. Alfa MiTo
    My MiTo Cloverleaf just had it's first service at 18 months old after 18,000 miles. Mechanically, from my uneducated perspective, the car has been perfect. The independent dealer diagnosed the following issues: 1/. Cylinder seal leaking causing the gasket to fill with oil. Apparently this is...

    Hi fellow Alfisti I am changing my 156 Wagon after 34k of trouble free and terrific miles for a 159 SW Ti. I can't wait and have the same tingle of anticipation that I had when I collected my first Alfa (a 146 1.7 boxer) in 1995 - despite major electrical problems here I am about to buy my 5th...
  15. ICE & Blue&Me
    Well then... After a sleepless night of getting up and turning the stereo off in my Alfa after it decided to keep turning itself on 4 times, i think its time to change it. From looking at all the other threads it seems like this is a regular fault on these Alfa Blaupunkt Headunits. I know...
