  1. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    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...
  2. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    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!
  3. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    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
  5. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    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...

  7. 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...

    We are going to be selling my wife’s 159 Sportwagon as she needs a tow car to move her horses around. We have owned the car since 2016. It is a very nice car with 79k miles on it. It has been maintained by Alfaworkshop as with my other Alfa’s. Anyone interested please PM me. Hard to gauge value...

    Bought a set of silver Whispbars a year ago but managed to get hold of some black ones recently. Old ones on eVilbay now. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/254373997229 Guy
  10. 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...
  11. Insurance Section
    Hi all, I'm new to the forums but have been interested in purchasing a second car for a while now, specifically an Alfa 159 2.0 JTDM Sportwagon. I've been looking around and getting insurance quotes but haven't had anything too affordable. I'm 21, been driving since 17. Had 3 years no claims...
  12. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/507001246793443/ 2.4 5 cylinders was serviced every 10k and along with the 6 speed manual perfect. The sump has a hole in it. So I switched off the engine straight away. The car hit the curb in the rain last. I just a hedge. I would say you want 2...

  14. Introduce Yourself
    Hi all, from the South Coast of the UK. I'm in a village called Clanfield, just North of Portsmouth in Hampshire. Joined the forum a few days ago when I picked up a 1995 156 Sportwagon Veloce 1.9 16V JTD. I've brought it as something to tinker with, different to my Landrover and old Ducati...
  15. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Been having a little trouble with it the last few weeks, some days it works, others not. So tonight I had a look at it (whilst the trim was off from replacing the rear wiper). Having managed to get it off easily enough I noticed that the plastic around one of the fixing bolts was cracked and...

  17. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    My lovely 159 2.4 JTDM will fall foul of the the London pollution charge when the area is extended to the north and south circular next year. One cure might be to trade in for a TBI model. But I have a Sportwagon and I need the load space. I have not seen adverts for TBI Sportwagon's for sale...
  18. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Well, after 5 years of happy and (almost) problem-free motoring with my Carbonio black Alfa Sportwagon it seems that the journey may have come to an end. She was due her MoT at the beginning of the month so a (now former) friend offered to give her the once over for me, then do the MoT himself...
