  1. General Alfa Discussion
    The backdrop and the drone shots are as cool as the car. Sounds wonderful, too ? https://youtu.be/GPMXHqZeuEE Enjoy ?
  2. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi everyone, I'm having a long think here about reducing my inventory of parts for the GTV - not least due to the space everything takes in my attic (!) - and toying with the idea of putting my Clarion silver cassette unit up for sale. I bought it some time back from another club member and it...
  3. Alfa Giulia
    This morning when I turned on the radio it suddenly sounded really bad, no bass, limited range of sound etc (it is the HK one). Tried different channels and Spotify, no joy. Turned the unit and car on/off, reset audio settings, no joy. Finally I manually disabled surround sound in the menu and...
  4. General Motoring Discussion
    When I had the TS in my 145QV, I thought it sounded very nice. But then I hadn't been acclimatised back then to the 5, 6, and 8 cylinder cars I have driven since - each of which has seemed to sound better than the last. I had a passenger trip in a Clio 182 a good few years back (I think I still...
  5. General Motoring Discussion
    Wide open here for hopefully some decent discussion without descending into personal insults ;) Alfa Romeo blinkers are allowed to be removed in here, so you can say anything else besides the Busso V6 :D If anyone says a diesel you will be banned for life For me, nothing tingles my spine...
  6. General Motoring Discussion
    I spent / wated the evening last night listening to various engines and thinking about which ones sound nicest. V6: The 2.0 Turbo Busso is the winner for V6s IMO, but there is some close competition, even from my E320 with a resonator delete: V8: I can't really think of a V8 which sounds...
  7. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello, So long story short, during a -5c day i was driving around in my 1.9jtd GT somewhat aggressively (after it warmed up). Unfortunately, the turbo, on top of standard whistling sounds, suddenly started making a lower frequency whooshing sound. The closest I can describe it as is a low power...
  8. The Classic Alfa Romeos
    ...how does one actually pronounce Giulia? Or rather, how would an Italian pronounce it?
  9. Alfa Giulietta
    I find the noise from the so called intake sound generator to be boring and artificial. I wouldn't want to be a front seat passenger on a fast cross country trip...( the duct enters the cabin on the passenger (left hand) side) For those who don't know what it is, the ISG is nothing more than a...
  10. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    My Spider's indicator flasher sounds like one out of an 70's datsun. Will a new one sound any better or am I expecting too much?
  11. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi guy's I've had my GT for a few months now and only recently noticed it doesn't make a noise when the alarm goes off. There is no beep when locking or unlocking the car with the fob, although the car does lock. But I locked the kids in the car yesterday while I stopped at a cash point and...
  12. Alfa Giulietta
    Regazzon vs Supersprint vs Novitec. Resonated vs non resonated?
  13. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, Right I brought a little 147 for the missus (she's put so many dents in my 159 and rolled it in to a tree ?). Only had it 4 months now and it sounds more like a diesel then my diesel does on start up then the noise goes soon after. My understanding is from digging around is that it...
  14. Alfa MiTo
    Hi, we have a 2010 Mito Qv (30k miles) and when accelerating, even on light accelerating, the engine just does not sound smooth as I thought it did when we brought it. I can only describe the sound as a kind of slight high pitched tickety kind of sound. Any ideas what this could be. When the...
  15. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Afternoon all, Things are starting to fall into place with the GTV now and i am really happy with it. Still plenty of odd jobs to do which will stop me from getting bored over the next year or so. Currently The only issue that is concerning me is the sound of the engine. When it is warm...
  16. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello, have been looking at this forum for the last few years and its my first post, some great info on here,just after a bit of advice, I have an 05 156 jtd sport which as developed a tappet rattle on idle over the past few days and has been getting worse as I can now hear it sometimes when...
  17. Engines (TS, JTS, JTD & V6)
    Just wanted some ideas and suggestions on this... I purchased a rather neglected 147 last week to fix up. It has apparently been standing for 6 months, I've gotten it running but it sounds like a diesel under load, I know its definitely not the variator. It starts up and sounds like a perfectly...
  18. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I've been having a problem recently with my V-reg 156 with regards to the alarm setting off occasionally and sometimes giving me an extra beep when locking. If I set the alarm, sometimes it can be fine for hours, sometimes it'll go off in seconds. The manual is pretty useful in this regard...
  19. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I've always loved the sound of a good 6 cylinder engine. But which do you think is the best sounding? I've always thought the 2.5 V6 can sound a bit metallic and raspy, very similar to the old straight six M3 engines. But I'd love my Busso to have the trumpeting throb of the R32. Good...
