    I deeply detest synthetic aural accompaniments (faux engine sounds in particular) to cars ... but ... but ... is there perhaps a case to be made for EV-converted ICE classics having the correct (for the vehicle) sound track available? My own preference would be for a sympathetic EV conversion -...

    Hi all, Please remove if not allowed, or move to the right location. I did read the private sellers rules and it looks like I should post in this thread as it's an Oil spec directly related to all Giulietta's, Mito's, 4C etc... Halfords is selling the exact same oil for: - 5L = £47.99 - 1L =...

    Hi. The bloody mechanic decided to put Carlube 5W-30 oil in my Alfa 1.9 jtd (2006, just over 100k miles) although I reiterated I want 5w40.
