    Evening all Some lovely person has decided to smash my rear window in, I'm not sure whether to go through insurance as they'll surely increase my premium. Does anyone know where I can find a replacement window. The best I can find is imported from Italy and certainly isn't cheap. Thanks

    Well window has been smashed So got to put new glass in, have sourced one from local breakers alfa 159 drivers side window, I did the passenger motor replacement last year as the wire snapped. I assume this should be easier and i dont really need to fit new motors etc etc

    Does anybody have experience with replacing a smashed side window? Is it simply a question of speaking with your insurance and having auto glass come and replace it, or better to take the car to an Alfa Romeo dealer? Any information would be appreciated. Thank you,

    After nearly braking fingers swapping my smashed fogs for new ones, does anyone know a of anything you can buy , like a film that goes over fogs to help stop road chips smashing the glass ?

    Just been on eBay and found a black line in Wigan that's being broken. 1) posted in case anyone needs any bits (I don't know the car). 2) posted because I've not seen a GT SMASHED to that extent before! Looks like it's a fairly solid motor...thankfully!

    Alfa 159 1.9 16v JTDM 2007 So I hit something in the road about a month ago that smashed (not cracked!!) a hole in my sump pan. No real drama RAC collected car, new sump sourced and fitted no probs. Last week the turbo decided to go but as car has 128k miles I thought it was about due and...

    Was doing some repair work after the gales and managed to drop a ladder on the back of the G :mad: Whilst being incredibly stupid it also looks like I've been incredibly lucky for whilst the light cluster is smashed it looks like the ladder bounced off and didn't touch any of the bodywork...

    Saw an abandoned 156 with a heavy front end smash earlier on the A329M near Bracknell :( Condolences to the owner if you're on here, and hope you're ok.

    My girlfriend has just bore the brunt of my frustration after she ordered me to park forwards in to a space outside our flat. I caught the mirror on a wooden post which has seen the glass mirror smash and the black plastic casing crack. Does anyone have an approximate idea of cost to fix? It's...

    After only two months driving my 2 year old Spider my wife has managed to shatter the rear windscreen (admittedy not her fault) by opening the roof. The problem seems to be that the roof mechanism dislodged part of the rollover headrests and then when the hood folded away the glass crushed...

    After having a small engine problem with my Alfa returned the curtessy car, on the way back from the garage some german lorry driver, drove into the side denting and scrapping every panel and ripping the side mirror off. Now a very sad Alfa owner :-((

    Noticed this yesterday. :rant: I'm assuming it was a huge piece of road grit, just like the one that hit my windscreen last week.

    Replacing front foglights on my car every couple of months is getting tedious now. Came out this morning and saw the O/S foglight was smashed - I'd only replaced it 2 months ago due to it being smashed :mad: I've replaced both lights twice in the last 9 months. Any tips on stopping this? Has...
