    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    After a few posts I'm still no nearer to an answer about the black smoke that pours out my 147 Q2 Sport when the turbo kicks in. The story is it ate all its swirl flaps and I had the whole top end rebuilt and a new turbo installed at a cost of £2300. So now, every time I put my foot down I get...

    I bought this car almost one year ago. Previous owner told me that DPF was drilled, but ECU needs new remap because of "Anti Pollution Filter clogged" warning on dash and also EGR was blanked (MES shows 3,998% open or something). Car run perfectly without any problems. A few months later I...

    I was just driving through town and my 159 started smoking from seemingly underneath the car. It seemed like quite a lot and the smell through the HVAC was quite strong. When I arrived at my destination I took a video of the smoke and opened the bonnet, where it also seemed to be coming from...
