  2. Looking for specific badge

    Alfa Giulietta
    My G's (front) badge is on a terrible shape, and I need to replace it. Since my car is black, I think that a black&white badge would be a nice addition. Been looking over the web for a replacement. I noticed that most of the badges are stick-on, the reviews on the web seems ok so I'm willing to...
  3. Are these parts specific to 147 GTA?

    Alfa GTA
    The two large braces that run parallel to each other down the length of the car - Are they specific to the 147 GTA or are they fitted to all 147's? Mine are looking very tatty and rusty so I was thinking of getting a pair off another car, powder coating them and then replacing mine. Thanks in...
  4. Cambelt tools: GTA specific or not ?

    Alfa GTA

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Maybe this helps someone. Recently got surprised by a "Coolant temperature exceeded" warning. When I pulled over and checked under the hood. There was a leak visible near a black plastic cover just on the front right of the engine. As with all leaks, it's not easy to tell what exactly is...

  9. 159 Mats - Specific Fittings

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi All. I'm looking to get a set of mats for my Ti. I notice that connectors something like these are fixed to the floor in each area i.e. drivers, passengers and back seats. Has anyone got any recommendations for ideally generic mats. Even the official mats seem to only have connectors on the...
  10. Considering a 159 1.9 JTS - any specific issues to look out for?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi folks, I went to see a 2006 Alfa 159 1.9 JTS Turismo last saturday. The car needs a bit of TLC as it's incredibly dirty inside and outside (plus bits of the badges are missing...the "5" from 159 and the JTS writing), but it's otherwise mint bodywork-wise, and it looks very good on the...

  12. Cambelt kits & job specific tools

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I've seen a few cambelt kits from various brands selling selling through EuroCarPrats & the like, but interestingly they seem to sell kits that they say fit my engine but have varying belt widths & numbers of teeth - surely this can't be right. Can anyone provide some guidance? If it helps, I...
  13. Specific insurance question.

    Insurance Section
    Hi all. My cheapest car insurance came with the company that installs their box that calculates how many miles you drive in a year. Does anyone have the same box installed in your vehicle and is it any good?? As I drive about 5-8k miles only and never came across sort of company before. PS...
  14. GTA specific for sale section?

    Alfa GTA
    Just a thought, wouldn't it be nice to have a sticky thread dedicated to GTA bits for sale in the GTA lounge? I for one don't visit the classified section, but do visit this section. Don't think it'd cause any harm, and wouldnt need closing abruptly either? Any thoughts?

  16. Looking for a specific noise from my GTA...which exhaust?

    Alfa GTA
    Morning gents Currently I run a 147 GTA with the Autodelta quad exhaust system. Now there is nothing wrong with this system, it seems very well made and looks the business. The thing is, I find the sound, although very loud ( not an issue ) isn't quite what I'm after. Now don't get me wrong...

  20. Specific Gravity of Ethylene Glycol Coolant?
