    After a long 6 months trying to find a decent set of horseshoes I finally had them booted and fitted yesterday! Now the car looks exactly how I remember it when I just turned 8 and the sportwagons were new! Other than needing to change the front springs to stock and getting a wing dent sorted...

    I was having a look under my 159 1.9jtdm sportwagon for (Front sub-frame rust) and noticed a layer of oil covering various parts middle/frobnt bottom of the engine. Just wondering if this is something I need to attend too or just a non older diesel issue. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. wa

    I’ve got a 2006 159 Sportwagon 2.2 with incorrect springs at the front! the car sits way too high and it’s become one of those passive annoyances i keep forgetting to deal with. i want to lower the fronts so they’re down to stock (or maybe very slightly lower) does anyone know the stock length...

    Afternoon Alfisti. Last year I bought a 156 Sportwagon off Pud237 (Dan) to help out my auntie who needed a cheap workhorse to run around to work and back in. Her circumstances have changed and she needs something with a towbar, before I could really arrange anything she had another car lined up...

    Evening all, glad to have joined up- had been after a 159SW for some time and last week took the plunge. 2008 Lusso 2.4 in Red - thus far it's been great, but not without a few issues to sort. I'd appreciate advice on them, as I understand they're fairly common (I hope) and therefore sortable...

    I have a 2005 156 sportwagon and when the doors are open it pops up on the centre console display. This is not the case for the tailgate / boot. Does anyone know how the info centre knows when a door / tailgate is open? Is there a sensor in the tailgate? If so, where can I find it? Thanks all!

    So after just over a month of owning the red workhorse, my 159 SW started to lose steering fluid. Topped it up and took her to my nearest Alfa specialist. After seeing her on the ramp and turning the steering wheel the steering rack joints were dripping oil with each turn. Been quoted for a...

    This is my new car, she’s a 2.4 159 sportwagon Ti, and my first car at 18 years old. Picked her up from Birmingham and she’s now back safe on the drive in Tunbridge Wells. Amazing on the motorway, Absolutely hilarious fun to drive and looks like nothing else on the road

    Hello Alfa heads, My 156 Sportwagon has suffered with being a bit sluggish since I’ve owned it. It is 16 years old now and hasn’t had the easiest life (nor has it had the hardest), but I’d expect a little more oomph out of a 2.4 turbo diesel. After being scanned at the garage the boost...

  14. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Tried to remove it this weekend but it's stuck, violence isn't working so any pointers appreciated! The two locating loops are free of the plastic sockets but it's caught on something under the base, the squab is slightly forward and it won't drop back down into the (broken) plastic sockets...

  17. Alfa Stelvio
    I was wondering if there any Stelvio owners and get their feedback on how the transition from one car to the other. I am still not sure on the Stelvio or the SUV jump that most manufacturers want everyone to go to. What would you say the pro's and con's owning one. I've owned four 159...
