  1. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    This has probably been answered before somewhere, but what's the best recommended replacement battery for my GT 3.2? Or, is there a recommended upgrade from the standard battery? :teacher: Just had it a couple of weeks. Been in the garage most of the time and guess what's happening tonight ...
  2. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    But it's making me so sad. She has to go as i've just bagged my old mans A6 and we haven't the space or money to keep what has been one of, if not the most rewarding car i've ever had. Getting disks and pads all round from Mtec. Going for the drilled / grooved fronts and drilled rears. Mainly...
  3. General Motoring Discussion
    Car dealers: the best and worst 2014 | Auto Express Granted Alfa, Fiat and especially Jeep/Chrysler are hardly flying high, but given the praise heaped at VW Group by the motoring press, this set of results really brought a smile to my face. First dangerously thin profit margins being...
  4. Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    The old Alfa magic still works, a spirited drive home from the office this evening has left me buzzing, the more you push the more you are rewarded. Lots of cars out there but no other Alfas, so good to be a driving a very desirable rarity. The joy continues as you park on your drive pour...

  6. General Alfa Discussion
    OK this forum is a wealth of stuff relating to problems of our marque and model and I guess sometimes we think what on earth have we done? But I had to smile this morning: Reading the Sunday Times Driving supplement, centre pages and Clarkson is testing the Mito875 TwinAir; it gets no stars...

  11. Alfa GTA
    Just took the GTA out for a drive as i found a spare 30 quid :). Haven't driven it for well over a month. Even had to jump it. It looked a bit sad covered in leaves when i went to my parents to get it. I feel bad I had to leave for so long. I certainly will not do that again. Anyway I took it...
  12. Alfa 145 & 146
    Well...it's over for now...after three years of ownership, a trip through Europe, and two harsh Icelandic winters in I've sold my baby. The only thing that haunts me is the amount of work put into the car and the pride I enjoyed in owning and driving it. :) I just made a quick decision that I...
  13. General Alfa Discussion
    My mrs has been borrowing my 145 QV for the last 2 weeks, as her car has broken down (Oh the irony). I received a text from her a couple days later saying that she loves the car, is addicted to the noise and she finds it so much fun. Its nice to hear some good feedback about an Alfa for once ...
  14. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Some may have heard of 'Extreme Ironing' Few weekends back I decided to do an attempt!!! I ****** myself everytime I look at it :cheese::lol:
  15. Alfa GTA
    I have my GTA up for sale and as such I have been trying to detach myself from it! But its like a drug,a habit you can't kick.I look for reasons why other cars are better and reasons why the GTA should go and apart from my greedy ex wife and petrol i can't think of any!There is not a better...
  16. Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    So I’ve taken delivery of “Alfredo”, my new 159 2.4 JTDm and I have to say I’m pretty pleased so far. A quick blast down to the Cotswolds on Sunday brought that Alfa grin back after 4 ½ years. Pity the Fosse Way has sprung so many damned speed cameras. I hope I spotted them all. 3 points on day...
  17. Introduce Yourself
    Hi all, First time Alfa owner at 52 :thumbs: I was looking for a bargain and spotted a 2001 147 with engine noise so took the plunge and bought it £700 :D (I was a mechanic back in the day of points and condensers) The fella I bought the car off thought the big ends had gone but after looking at...
  18. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    When i was handing over £134 for six months tax the other day the lady behind the counter said after i had a little moan about the price "well you will have a sporty car" and "i used to have an alfa romeo (with a smile on her face)it was the best car Ive had, lots of fun". I then walked off not...
  19. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    HI Guys, Well another saturday over and guess what i have been playing with my selespeed again. After getting the selespeed unit working fantastic there is just one fault i cannot cure.
