  6. Multiroom audio / 'assistant' systems

    The Technology Section
    Things like Sonos, or alternatively like the Amazon Echo stuff. Both are largely aimed at playing music, obviously the former more so. But do they have options for playing your own music? Or do both rely on your willingness to subscribe to a service? I'm not sure why I'd want to pay a tenner a...

    General Motoring Discussion
    Are cars set to go the way of the mobile phone in the near future? i.e. actually can be utterly rubbish at what it's meant to do but people judge it on how cool the graphics are and how fast the CPU runs. Infotainment test: best in-car entertainment systems reviewed | Auto Express To be fair...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Greetings Petrolheads! I want to know if switching from stock to aftermarket induction systems is a good idea. As far as my knowledge for cars goes I believe that without reprogramming/remapping its not wise to fiddle with things as such. Please advise the pros and cons of replacing to...

    Hi I am in the process of buying a black 1750 tbi, 159 ti sportwagon. Its on a '61' plate. Black is a great colour when clean but keeping it clean and scratch free can be a pain in my experience. I have been offered a paint protection application by the dealers. Any experience/views on the...

  12. restored dizzy from H&H ignition systems

    Alfa 33, Sud & Sprint
    I decided to buy an old bosch dizzy and send it to h&h to restore. My old one was giving me plenty of issues. I managed to get hold of some old springs to try but without the proper instruments to measure it you could spend months trial and error. I also managed to break a plastic bushing...

    Alfa MiTo
    Hi All, I'm new to the forum but as the driver of a 159 Ti, my wife is looking to get a Mito. The thing is, we have a new nipper on the way & the boot access in the Mito is too small for our existing travel system. We don't want to move to a Giulietta as I have one of those on the way for me...
