  2. Alfa Giulietta
    Hi guys, Few days ago I did oil change and replaced filters. Nothing else was done on the car, but after that blow-off sound changed. Instead of regular "psss" sound, now it sounds like air is blown over some kind of edge or something. It's not as sharp as it was before, it's more "hollow" now...
  3. Engines (TS, JTS, JTD & V6)
    Hi everyone İ own a 2007 Alfa Romeo 147 1.9 jtd 16v 150ps. When İ start the car in the morning the car makes a knocking noise. After 20 to 30 mins when the engine gets warm the sound disappears.

  5. Alfa Giulia
    I am considering an order for a new Veloce. Has anyone had the "Mid Level Audio Sound Theatre" added as an option? Is it worth it, or is the standard audio good enough (my 159 has the BOSE set up).

  7. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hello guys, i have been for quite some time now trying to find the sound setting on the sat nav of my 2.4 brera. The speakers produce almost no bass, extremely low quality so wanted to see whether the settings might have been changed. Any info on how to adjust the bass and other sound features...

    Hi guys, I fitted quad exhaust rear section and love the look but then come across this video and the sound is stunning!! I love the deep growl sound.... so how do I achieve this? My quad exhaust just replaced the last section, everything else is standard. Reading the comments it's...
  9. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I just got myself a GT. Love the car, but it has a somewhat boomy and "farty" exhaust note, fairly loud. The dealer I bought it from said they repaired a crack in it and it should be fine. So went back to them with the lambda (sorted), the mechanic told me they checked the exhaust for more...
  10. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    https://youtu.be/4rAcWfkACPM After changing the timing belt on my 156, the engine has this weird knocking noise heard on the video. I did some careful listening and the source of the noise is around inlet camshaft or the the hole inlet system. Does anybody know what should I do or how the sound...
  11. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    ... can you use a brake hose clamp on braided hoses (Goodridge)??? Need to swap out a rear caliper at some stage (seized handbrake mechanism) and wanted to lose as little fluid as poss in the process. Makes bleeding quicker. When I fitted them I clamped the original hose, removed the...

  13. Alfa MiTo
    Hello all, My wife just bought a MiTo with 80000kms (50000 miles) yesterday. We love it's looks. It's simply the best small looking car around. She comes from a Japanese car (Mazda 2 MKII). Comparing the two, I find the Alfa more rattling. It does some minor "bump sounds" when driving slow on...
  14. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, Driving along in my GT with the windows down enjoying a rare spell of nice weather in the North East...no music on (which is even more rare), and noticed a 'wobbly' sound. Started to experiment to see how it came and went, and it seems the sound is present at around 2,000rpm or more...

  16. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, My 2006 1.6 TS (120PS) Alfa Romeo 147 sounds exactly like a diesel engine after warmup. I know about the very-common variator problem on this engine but I think my problem is different because my engine sounds very normal at cold starts. When I cold start the engine, everything sounds...

    A family member just redid the the sound system in both his 2014 Ford Ranger XLS and his son's Chev Utility. I decided that I would first upgrade the front splits before investigating upgrading the rest. Well I took it to Alarming Bass in Pretoria East and it took them a little over an hour to...

  19. Alfa Giulietta
    Afternoon, Looking for some guidance on upgrading my speakers/sound system on my 2012 Giulietta. Currently the noise is quite crackly at higher volumes and the sound in the back is hardly there.. At lower volumes the sound lacks definition or 'bite'. This is my first car and my first upgrade...
