  1. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    So after noticing my inner nearside CV boot was split last year, I got the boot replaced and joint re-packed with grease - but alas, it's now clicking away at low-speed manouvering/parking. Gave the shaft a decent shake yesterday and there's in/out play in the inner joint... Went to compare the...
  2. Alfa Giulietta
    Hi, I'm a newbie to the world of Alfa Romeo, but I'm looking for recommendations for the best fuel providers for my car, its a 150 Multiair. I used to have a Ford and posh petrol made it go wrong.
  3. Alfa Giulietta
    Hello, a few days ago I noticed that this cap has fallen out/ been taken from my rear bumper. I’ve been searching online for a replacement but all I can find are round ones. Does anyone know what this is called or where I can find one?
  4. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, I have read every thread here and elsewhere I can find one this but am stumped. The hatch/boot release just stopped working a couple of days ago. The car doesn't get a great deal of use but given the unforgivable lack of a mechanical handle in the back it must be fixed. The solenoid is...
  5. Alfa Giulia
    My Giulia is approaching its first birthday, so due for an oil change etc. Early last week I received a letter from Westover, whose Westover Sports Cars branch in Poole supplied my car. They were telling me about a "new" dealership, in conjunction with their Jeep place in fairly nearby...
  6. Alfa GTA
    Hi, I'm no longer a GTA owner. My 156 GTA SW was destroyed in a fire :hurt: :weeping: It happened while it was parked near the airport during our holiday. The garage where it was parked was destroyed in a big fire that started 3 sheds away. I'll spare you the after pictures and just share some...

  9. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Just a chance to show a few pics from a busy day yesterday. I keep changing the colour of my GT with plastidip and more recently, liquid wrap, which gives a smoother finish. The bits that have been sprayed are the wheels, the whole front bumper and grille, the boot and rear bumper. I left the...
  10. The Technology Section
    :rant: Blinking thing got so hot yesterday on test and subsequently refused to switch off!:mad: I had to stuff it in the freezer for more than half an hour to get it to function, so shortly I'll try the stoopid' bit of kit again to see if it works, before I have a go at Amazon.
  11. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi guys the locking has never worked on my 156 1.9 jtd and I would really like to sort it as a great excuse to look bay at the car when pressing the button on the key. Lol! So I have made a star and replaced the key fob key with a new battery and......... Nothing! I am now thinking maybe be a...
  12. Alfa Giulietta
    I thought I better re introduce myself as I haven't been on here for a long time and tbh I only used the forum as a way to get my 147 running. So if you feel used I apologise :thumbs:. Although technically it won't really be you guys as I used the 147 section not the G section. So hi I'm Chris...
  13. Alfa GTA
    I am toying with the idea of fitting fairly wide wheels to my 156 GTA. This would be for track day use only as it probably would be a nightmare on the bad Swedish roads. What I have in mind is 17x9 ET 28 wheels with either 235/40-17 or 245/40-17 tyres. The big question is if they will fit...
  14. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi All, I've had my 2.4 159 (65k) for just about a month now and getting used to some quirks but in general loving the car. The MPG is very dissappointing, around 28 (live in South Devon, so lots of twisty a/b roads) and wondered if a remap may help here a little. However it's the lag that is a...
  15. General Motoring Discussion
    On my car I have just bought extra load tyres, they are rated at 99 rather than the standard load equivalent which is 95. (Size 225/55R16 99W) The car doesn't really need them it is just I got a very good deal on them compared to other regular rated tyres. My question is do I need to run them...
  16. Introduce Yourself
    Hi there, I'm Pete from South London, and I've been lurking around for a while. I am a happy owner of an Alfa 75 and a V-reg 156 saloon. The 75 was made in 1989 as a 1.6 litre base model for the Italian domestic market. She might be not as powerful as her V6 siblings, but still pure fun to...

    Finally got around to properly sorting our garage today since moving in last September. The GT is in for a pre-Holland / SCARB service so figured today would be a good day. Pleased with the results. A place for everything & everything in its place. Before After It's a 7x7 meter...
  18. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi guys well my project is very close to its mot, done a lot of work to her and had a little reward today being able to take her out for her first run. Although i couldn't put my foot down :rolleyes: as the brakes are shocking! my vision of a blast down the country lanes were hampered because it...
  19. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    As above, looking at 2.2 Brera Prodrive and wondered if their work sorted this hesitation issue I keep reading about, or would a trip to Gus still be recommended? Also, is the timing chain still likely to be an issue on these later cars with lower mileage. I'm desperate for this car as it is...
  20. Alfa GTA
    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Alfa-Romeo-156-Sportvagon-/181355478632?pt=Automobiles_UK&hash=item2a39a0fe68 Amazing amount of work or a bit of a joke? Still £7500 is a lot for a 2.5 Q System that usually sells for £2-3K. Discuss!
