  1. Introduce Yourself
    Hi all, Thanks for the welcome. So, story is I used to have a 147 jtdm. Great car. Not much leg room but I was in the front. It had to go for reasons I won't bore you with. Fast forward to a few months ago my eldest son decided he wanted a 147 too! Great. But there are a few issues and he's...
  2. Introduce Yourself
    Hello to you all! Just yesterday I bought a gorgeous AR 147 from 2005. It's a 4door silver beauty with 2.0TS and Selespeed. I immediately had fallen in love with it. It has some stuff to work on as I paid only 2300€. All is well with it aside from a quirk with the Sele which I'll cover in...

    Who is bringing his Alfa to the "Cars in the Park" at Zwartkop? The Alfas will be parked in our usual spot at the table top. ARCOP arranged a mobile stall with POMC to sell regalia. If you come in a pre-85 car enterence for 2 people are free. If you come in a post-85 Alfa, 2 people will be...

    He fell totally in love with a red 145 1.8 TS we spotted while away, and has been scouring Autotrader and FleaBay for one - or something similar - ever since. He fancies an Alfa from "the old days" to restore (with a bit of dad's help). So I'm putting this on the Forum to see if anyone knows...

  10. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Making my way home this evening along the 18 miles of country roads between my work and my home in my GT, I was pulled over by an unmarked Police car. Didn't think I was speeding so assumed maybe a back light had gone or similar !. The conversation then went "that was some fancy driving sir...

  15. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I am a 75 man myself and I've infected my son with the Alfa virus On the condition he drove our smart car for a year, I then insured him on one of the 75s. After 18 months driving the 75 he is now looking at the 156 but all the horror stories are putting me off which is the most reliable and...

  18. General Alfa Discussion
    As a typical 20 yr old my son likes to stay in bed, play on his X box, sleep, watch tv, snooze etc.....:rolleyes::rolleyes: Since owning his own Alfa he has transformed into an unrecognisable being - even possibly developing obsessional tendencies :wow::wow::wow: Today he washed and waxed his...

    Please help me out with reasons as to why my Son's 2002 156 JTD keeps stopping. There appears to be no rhyme or reason to it. It's working fine, then just cuts out and wont start again. Leave it 5 mins or so, and you're off again! Have plugged it into a diagnostics and nothing comes up, and...
  20. General Alfa Discussion
    My 18 month old son appears to be able to recognise Alfa styling cues! He got hold of our copy of Clarkson's book "I know you got soul" and was flipping through the photo pages saying "plane" or "car" or "boat" at each one. He then got to a picture of an Alfa 166 and said "dadda car." He must...
