    Hi All just thought I'd share my recent experience with the my previously fault free GT, it's a '07 Blackline Edition bought for my wife about 8 months ago. All my mates thought i was mad and asking for trouble buying a Alfa but a late model car, nice condition, nice spec, full MOT for £750...
  2. Sportive 170 2014 Rear door leak sorted step by step (fingers crossed)

    Alfa Giulietta
    I know it has been discussed before but I thought I'd post this as most info is on front door and looks scary, time Intensive and expensive. I took the plunge and did a DIY fix for the recurring puddle on my Sportiva 170 G. Only took 1 hour or so and was not scary at all as it turned out. The...
  3. MSCF failure. Boost pressire sensor sorted

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    So I had a problem with my 147 JTD 16v 140hp. The standard "MSCF failure" follows with limp home mode. The problem only occurred during full power acceleration in 4th,5th or 6th gear. Some times it happened and some times not. If it did not happen I could feel some steppines in the acceleration...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    So a while ago I posted about how my Brera subframe was starting to show rust and was in dire need of fixing before it would become too late.

    If anyone is looking for a 147 GTA I have one available which is looking for a new loving owner.

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    For a while now I have had a rattle when going over the odd pot hole in the front nearside suspension so I had a look and found that the top wishbone had very slight play in it It was ok just cruising quite as a mouse. so fearing an Alfa Bill I thought that looks fairly easy I will give it a...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Thought I would report on my GT's leaky boot problem. What started as a little drip onto the lining under the rear o/s cubby hole in the boot turned into a puddle in all this rain. Boot stripped out and hose applied (where's the rain when you need it!). As with some earlier threads, the leak...
