  3. 156 complete system upgrade as Bose sucks.

    ICE & Blue&Me
    OK I knew this would happen. I've already posted a couple of questions regarding a few simple upgrades but having been out in my "new" 156 all day I realise that no matter what the Bose system is absolute pants (sorry all you Bose fans). My previous system had a Sony HU running into an Audio...
  4. Do'h. that sucks....

    Alfa 164 & 166
    the 166 has thrown in the towel. the (brand new) timing belt tensioner has collapsed, taking the valve timing with it. it in classifieds, anyone with £400 can take it away - must be worth that for the ICS wheels and brakes alone, not to mention the new metal impeller water pump :cry::cry:
  5. Tesco diesel SUCKS !!!!

    Adrian Flux Insurance
    So I paid for a full years fully comp insurance around 4 weeks ago then crashed my alfa which has been written off :( . The insurers are saying that as I am making a claim for the car the policy will be cancelled and I get no refund which means I will have to fork out again to insure my next...

    ICE & Blue&Me
    Just got an iPOD Video 80GB at the weekend. Seems pretty cool but don't want to talk about the iPOD itself now :) I wanted to immediately be able to use the iPOD in a couple of cars so I didn't bother getting the Denison ICE Link setup for now (that probably would be the optimal setup for my...
