    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    My girlfriends 147 was hit by a car last night. She had left it parked outside our house, on the curb (not on the road at all, parked up on a big bit of grass, but directly next to the road). She was getting in it to go to work today and the windscreen is smashed, 30cm scratch on the bonnet...
  2. Is your car on Street View?

    General Motoring Discussion
    Now, I appreciate that many on AO live in gated communities, or whose regal homes are only accessible via a rigorous security check and long gravel drives :) but for the 2% on here who, like me, have to slum it with the riff-raff, I wondered whether your cars (Alfa or otherwise) are on Street...
  3. Eibach Pro Street upgrade

    Alfa Giulietta
    Just collected my 1.4MA from Autolusso with a set of Eibach Pro S. Been a real revalation. My G was registered in 2010, but the springs and shocks were in a bad way. Combined with the potholded London roads, it was getting really jittery. So comes the dilemma. A set of OEMs or something better...

  7. Aftermarket/Sport exhaust + MOT tests

    Alfa Giulietta
    I was spending quite a bit of time to go through many threads to find out about different exhaust systems available for Giulietta (QV particularly in my case). I'm still undecided about the setup I'm going to get for my GQV, but I'm dreaming about some kind of setup with sport cat. I'm worried...

  17. 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...
  18. Street Dominance in a Stepnose Alfa???

    South Africa
    Can a Stepnose Alfa dominate the streets of South Africa? I'm talking about a fully modified street car Alfa that can prey on owners of vintage Ferraris, Porsches, Lambo's, etc. How about keeping up/surprising the myriad of new sport/exotic vehicles running on the roads? What is the ultimate...
  19. Street lights

    Poll Room
    An increasing number of councils are now turning off street lights between midnight and 5am in built-up areas. In some areas (like mine) this means it is now impossible to walk outside after midnight without a torch. The councils claim that the move will save thousands of pounds a year, yet the...
