    Like the title says I'm getting noise from the turbo when I first start driving when the turbo starts up. I can't explain the sound could be screech could be whistle I'm not good at sound description. It only lasts a few seconds but I'm a bit gloomy about it. Could it be starting dry?The turbo...
  2. General Motoring Discussion
    As part of the country's desire to become more ecologically friendly, you may know that the official Taxis in Amsterdam and their rank at Schiphol airport comprises not just a load of the usual E-Klasse diesels, but a large number of electric Teslas. For the last three years I've been there...

  5. General Motoring Discussion
    Jalopnik reports that FCA may be considering "doing a Ferrari" with Jeep & Ram. However, it looks to me like something of a non-story - Marchionne just appears to have given a terse "yes" in reply when asked whether the two brands could be spun off into a separate company. "Could", not "should"...
  6. Alfa Giulia
    I've read and experienced the rate at which the fuel gauge plummets once its past the half way point so this morning with the gauge showing under half, 300 miles done from the tank already and 100 miles to go, I wasn't sure if I'd get back to fill up or have to on route. Having done 386 miles...
  7. Alfa Giulietta
    Hi all, In anticipation of doing an intermediate oil change on the March 2016 MA 170 Collezione, I bought original oil and filter from Shop4Parts. Just like the 159, the filter is listed as a paper insert for the plastic housing- except when I opened the bonnet, it wasn't. The oil filter on our...

  11. South Africa
    Just got a spin in an Audi R8 4.2TFSI :wow: The mapping of this thing in sport is unreal.. When you flick that paddle shift the car rips your head off with each gear change.. Please Alfa let the 'Race' mapping of the 4C be like that.. :thumbs: Alfa said in their 4C presentation that it will...

    Hi My wifes car is a 2006 JTS Selespeed 156 with 80,000Km on it. Its a low milage car but gets used once a week for a 40km drive, with 5000 km occuring in one 4 day stint from Hobart to Darwin where we now live. Last week while the car stopped in traffic with a warning to take the car back...
  13. South Africa
    Lol...*** for tat! I love the look, I love the exhaust sound especially when it pops, but what I love most is the seats and steeringwheel, damn you Alfa Romeo, damn you for not putting that chunky steering wheel into a GQV!!! That's the next OEM+ mod for my car, an Abarth steering wheel...

  16. Republic of Ireland
    So finally got to take my dads new Guilietta for a spin the other day, had to take it back to tractamotors to get them to flash the blue&me to work with the iPods, of course they then tell me that its not a do while you wait job and it would have to be booked into the garage, so home i went...

    so after nearly a year of spider ownership i finally took the twinny on more than a daily commute. did about a thousand kilometers in two days, driving up from melbourne to bright, then around rutherglen and beechworth and back. some really nice roads- twisty mountain roads but also long...
  18. Alfa 145 & 146
    Can anyone shed any light on why this happens? I have just stripped my old engine so i can sell some parts and the no3 has spun the big end shells 90 degrees, as they seem to do. . . Why does this happen, the engine had plenty of good oil, never run low and never had a cambelt go. . which...

    I hope you are going to like it:) The video is from the 3rd International Alfisti Track Day organized by Alfisti.gr at the Serres Racing Circuit. It is me driving my 147 QVD 1.9 8v...you can hear the sound of my lady and you can "see" the amount of black smoke.
  20. The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Has anyone converted their canister type filter (as on my 69 spider)to a spin in with the Flexolite kit? Its about £40, and perhaps worth it to avoid the spilt oil and general aggro of changing the canister type filter on an older car. (Its not easy to get the holder full of hot old oil out...
