  1. Tuning & Upgrades
    So over the years my 156 has been lovingly cared for and upgraded. I became a bit of a hoarder of useful parts which I now need homes for. I'll put everything on here for a while before ebay ... Firstly, I have everything you need to put 305mm Brembo brakes on a standard 156: GTA drive shafts...
  2. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Continuing with my New Year’s resolution to sort through the mountain of Alfa spares in my garage bought because ‘they might come in handy one day’ I have a few more items surplus to requirement so if anybody needs a pair of Twin Spark from springs or sills in red give me a shout. The springs...

    Hi all! Serial Alfa Owner (2x GTV V6, TS Spider, 156, 147...) but with a 'new' early 2011 Lusso 1.6 JTDM. Well, not mine exactly, the missus', but I'm excited about it too! In great condition, black and with only 52k on the clock [emoji106] It's got the Bosch SB08 radio with no USB or blue &...
  5. Alfa Giulietta
    Hi, I recently noticed this weird red stuff on the underside that looks like it’s ‘dripping’ but appears to be solid. There is nothing actually leaking as I have never seen any fluids left over on the ground. Please see images attached...any ideas what this is? Thanks,
  6. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I know there are loads of threads concerning hood problems - I have contributed to many of them. This post will be a bit of a repeat to that which I have posted before in answer to others - but bear with me. I have had my Spider for 6 years now. During those years the electric hood action has...
  7. Alfa Giulia
    Just gone on the configurator to check the spec on the Veloce I ordered yesterday and the website itself has been redesigned. More worryingly, they appear to have dropped the heated, electric memory seats and the heated steering wheel. I don't know if they have dropped anything else as I...
  8. Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Now that I have parted with my much loved Brera, I still look lustfully at them, I have some bits and pieces that I would like to part with, Mods, hope this is OK. Set of very nice, thick piled mats in good condition. DPF, I bought for mine in case I wanted to hollow one, I believe that it has...
  9. Alfa Giulia
    Just wondering should i have received a welcome pack of goodies by now? In addition, if your car needs a campaign update my dealer says AlfaUK will write to you advising you, the dealer doesn't inform, is that how it works?
  10. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, What oil goes in a 2L petrol JTS GT? It isn't using much but I'd like to have some on hand. Also, sometimes I get a clicking noise on start up. It goes pretty quick but.... 1/ Should I be worried? b/ I'm going up the lakes next year so will be dropping her in at AL in Penrith for cam...
  11. North West
    Does anyone want a set of shelves like the ones in the pic for nowt? They are used and some of the shelves are bent. They may also have paint on them so probably not ideal for your living room. They are very sturdy and are held together with nuts and bolts. None of that boltless witchcraft.
  12. Alfa Giulia
    Hi, I just had my speciale come back after the dealer had it for a few days for replacing the seats, and doing the software updates. I thought this update was supposed to add the text message reader, and add alternative routes for the Nav, and update the maps? Any ideas how I can check what...

  14. General Alfa Discussion
    Sometimes, when flashing another car user to say thank you to to let them through, I will do so by dropping to sidelights then back up instead of flashing the highs. I do this when I judge that the latter would likely dazzle them (i.e. they're directly ahead of me). Very very occasionally, when...
  15. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Does anyone know the name of that solution used to treat rust, you apply it and it turns blue-ish and hardens? What are its applications? I've found a bit of rust in my wheel arch and was wondering if I could use this followed by Hammerite?
  16. Alfa MiTo
    I have a 155TB with Brembo discs and EBC Green Stuff brake pads, and after just a short time of standstill my brake pads rust onto the discs, is this normal for the Brembo discs or is it because of the composition of the pads? This is of course only a problem when it is wet, so this is only 95%...

  18. Alfa GTA
    I have noticed the sideskirts, mostly right at the front by the wheelarch have come away slightly. Any recommendations on what is best to re-attach them?
  19. General Alfa Discussion
    Well, the sun's shining here, the weather is mild and I'm having a mellow Sunday, so to share the bonhomie, here are some nice Alfa vids I found on Youtube. I was searching to see if there was any new Giulia material up, and came across these: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pk3PtjY32_0 I know...
  20. Alfa Giulietta
    I've been thinking about sticking a double DIN stereo in my car and I would rather not use one of those Connects2 horrible facias :tut: So, I am thinking about engineering a plastic panel to cover where the toggle switches are in my 2010 Giulietta and fit the 2014 dash panel and fog switches...
