    Non Motoring Images
    I was giving the Mito a bit of a spruce up on Saturday and was checking I'd not left any smears when I noticed a strange rainbow effect. I quickly realised it was actually a reflection from the sky and dashed inside to grab my camera fo ra few photos :). Circumzenithal and supralateral arcs...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I know there's been some discussion on here about how to identy the 170bhp GTs, whihc seems to come down to: Can't go by the Cloverleaf badges Sport Button is a guarantee of 170 ...but even then, I've seen people posting that they have the sport button on a car that claims to only be 150...

    Alfa 164 & 166
    Just spent two weeks working in Suisse... Well, can you imagine driving your 166 around and seeing 2 or 3 more in one journey....?

  8. Alfa Romeo Spotting - Google Maps Street View

    General Alfa Discussion
    Having some idle moments, I've just spent time looking at Google Maps Street View and seeing what Alfa Romeos are around. Sadly, via Brera in Milan does not have a single Brera that I can see. However, on the corner of Via Brera and Piazzetta di Brera we do find a 156 (illegally parked, but no...
  9. 166 spotting in Naples

    Alfa 164 & 166
    Greetings from Napoli. I've been looking for 166s, I've only seen three. Two older and battered (most cars are dented here, I wonder why?) cars spotted. A local senior Carabinieri officer drives an official F/L 166 just like mine! Black with black leather. He has a blue light on the roof. Very...

  11. The weirdest Alfa spotting day :)

    General Alfa Discussion
    We live in a small seaside town, the a**e end of nowhere. Today, the weather was miserable so instead of walking, we took the car into the town centre. We parked on a road no more than 200 metres long. In that same road as our GTV was another GTV, a Spider, two 159 Sportwagons, a 156 Selespeed...

  13. Spider Spotting !

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    I couldnt find the thread for 105 spotting. Saw a nice Blue Series 3 Spider today, doing 70+ with the roof down (pretty impressive as it was F reg), was travelling east along M27/A27, turned off up the A3 I think. There was no point in me giving you Alfa wave as I was in the company car. Quite...
  14. Alfa spotting in Tuscany

    Republic of Ireland
    Just back from 10 days in Tuscany, rented a car and did a bit of touring, got a grand punto diesel, crap around town, not nippy enough but great for autostrada mile munching and pretty frugal, €70 for 750km and one day was 3 hrs across mountain switchbacks. A bit disappointed at first not a...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    My 156 2.0 JTS has developped a nasty flat spot between 1.5k and 4k revs (depending on gear).

Further suggestions have been the Throttle body or the...

  19. Parts bin spotting

    General Alfa Discussion
    The interchangeable parts thread got me thinking... the Fiat parts bin - which bits do you recognise form other cars? After all, Fiat loves to share parts right across the group. As a start I present: 1. seat switches on the Maserati QP IV - same as the 166 2. Rear bumper reflectors on the...
