    Hi all, I had the an issue with my upper control arm nut, that it kept spinning in place and I had to use a dremel to cut it off! But now I don't know what nut is required! Does anyone know what spec nut is required for the upper control arm ball bearing?
  2. Japan spec number plate mounts

    Alfa MiTo
    Hey! I've just bought myself a new registration to go on my '10 MiTo Cloverleaf, and as it's only 5 characters, I thought I'd go for a different style of number plate. (UK) After some googling I decided I'd like to have the Japanese size plates (330x165mm) on both front & rear as I thought...

  6. Hello All, Alfa 147 937 Spec Question

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi there, I was wondering if anyone could help me. I have had my 147 here in Spain for a few years now and this year it failed its ITV (MOT) because the guy that serviced it said it had been lowered and had a different double chrome exhaust put on the back. As far as I am aware it came out...
  7. New Veloce spec and Questions

    Alfa Giulia
    Hi Guys, I'm new to this forum although have owned a AWD 159 some 9 years ago. Most beautiful car in black with red leather interior but due to its weight drove like a brick with awful fuel economy. I'm now taking another stab at this marque with the Veloce. I noticed many here picked cars in...
  8. GT 1.9jtd Cloverleaf rear shocks spec

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Once suffered a rear end collapse on a 156 when the spring cup on a rear shock collapsed. Planning to avoid the same fate on my GT green cloverleaf 1.9 Jtd 2009 but difficult to find the specification for the Mcpherson strut. It is obviously different from standard as the suspension is lower...
  9. Giulietta 1.4t 2015 battery spec?

    Alfa Giulietta
    I have recently bought a 2015 Giulietta 1.4t Progression (petrol). The start stop doesn't work. The dealer pointed out that the battery is incorrect. The Mopar battery is out of stock. What are the spec's for the battery I should by? Some say 70ah AGM type? I phoned various dealers but the...

    Alfa GTA
    HI Guys, Need a bit of advise... Is the GTA 3.2 engine similar to the GT3.2 engines. If there are differences, what would that be.. Looking forward to hear from all of you... Thank you I'm thinking of getting an engine but GTA seems to be a little harder...
  11. Alfa GT Cloverleaf/Q2 Spec Details

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi folks, I'm looking at buying an Alfa GT, hopefully a Cloverleaf Q2. It was my understanding that only the Q2 has the sports button, but I'm seeing cars advertised as just the normal Cloverleaf but have sport buttons in the photos. (and advertised as 150BHP as opposed to the upgraded 170BHP...

    Alfa Giulia
    Hi it possible to get the full specification details of my car from the VIN No? With my last car I could go to a site and get a full print-out fom the VIN No and wondered if this is possible for Alfa too. Thanks.
  13. Gearbox Oil Spec Total Frustration!

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    At a point of finishing a major overhaul of my 3.0 GTV including respray I decided to change the gearbox oil, it has done 50k miles and is 20 years old. The general recommendation on this car is to refer to the dealer. Alfa Romeo Piccadilly of Harrogate couldn't tell me the first time as their...
  14. Perfect spec for a Giulia Veloce?

    Alfa Giulia
    Hi everyone - regular reader but first post. So I've previously test driven the QV but can't quite make the numbers work so yesterday test drove the Veloce and was very impressed, albeit a little underwhelmed by the soundtrack but that may be my fault for starting with the V6... Long story...
  15. Mito 1.6 Gearbox spec

    Alfa MiTo
    Hello guys I've been trying to find out for a couple of days about the gearbox type of my Mito ,but it seems that there are two opinions here : Some say that there are only 1.6 with the M32, while some other say that the latest 1.6 can have the newer C635. Can someone let me know which opinion...
  16. Do earlier Veloce spec cars have the same shock absorbers as Turismo/Lusso?

    Alfa Giulietta
    Can't seem to find a definitive answer anywhere, hopefully someone here will know... Would our Giulietta, a 2010 1.4TB Veloce model, have the same shock absorbers as the Lusso or Turismo models of the same age? As far as I'm aware the Veloce sits slightly lower than the other models, using...
  17. GT Starter motor Spec?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Does anyone know what power rating the starter motor for the 16v 1.9 JTD should have. I've seen a company on ebay advertising brand new ones for a while claimed to be as good as OE spec and on the listing claiming to be 2.1Kw for £65 which would be phenomenal value if genuine. I wonder if anyone...
  18. Spec me some kids In Car Entertainment

    The Technology Section
    If I want something for my daughter to be able to watch on long journeys, what should I be looking for - and can you recommend a good example? Simple answer - portable DVD player. But means carrying around a load of DVDs too? I think some can accept USB / SD card too, so I could rip some stuff...
  19. Mito - older car - better spec?

    Alfa MiTo
    After a year with my current Mito multi 1.4105 (2012), while I like it, I've always been a bit unhappy with the power of the car, and really wished I had gone for 135/155. I am in a dreaded PCP but wonder how it looks if I approach another dealer as I would want an older (maybe 2009 onwards)...
  20. Fiat Spec Fully Synthetic Engine Oil Mobil 1 ESP 0W-40 6Ltr £30 London

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi all, Please remove if not allowed, or move to the right location. I did read the private sellers rules and it looks like I should post in this thread as it's an Oil spec directly related to all Giulietta's, Mito's, 4C etc... Halfords is selling the exact same oil for: - 5L = £47.99 - 1L =...
