    Ive been following the prices on these cars for some time, and I have found one being specialed from a dealer at 10K under its list price. The weekly payments would be so little its a joke, the car has done 95 kms, japanese import and described as pristine in all areas, plus is available with a...
  2. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    so after a lot of aching and head scratching and longing some time ago over buying a 147 or not... I bought a (ENEMY) bmw 325 coupe. I'd had as many cars as birthdays until this past monday, but my 325 ownership has outlasted any other car by double now... baby number 2 on the way and new...
  3. Alfa GTA
    I am thinking of selling my beloved Red 156 GTA RHD selespeed with under 40k on the clock. I have come on the forum after not being on here for a while and after reading all the passionate posts about the cars I am not sure I can part with it! Please don't let me! :(
  4. Alfa Giulietta
    I found my previous Giulietta followed the camber of the road under heavy acceleration at times. This was on 18" wheels and in a straight line.
  5. General Motoring Discussion
    For the next five weeks or so, I'll mostly be driving a BMW 5 Series (E60) once a week (and jolly nice it is, too). One thing I've noticed about it, is that the brakes are superb. This got me thinking about...yes, brakes! :jester: What makes for powerful brakes? Is it simply the bigger the...
  6. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I have often seen comments like "mmmm, cheap tyres, can't be that great a car" "Possibly not that well looked after, it's fitted with cheap tyres" etc. Now then, I use my spider daily to take to work, home again and journeys further afield, and I have it serviced regularly etc. and in 30,000...
  7. Alfa MiTo
    I have worked out that a diesel Mito will save me £1000, £900 a year over the 146ti, talk me into one and not a polo bluemotion :thumbup:
  8. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hello there, I was looking into 159s, using this forum as a base, and it seems the 159 3.2 version almost never comes into discussion. Always the 2.4 diesel or 2.2 petrol. Why is this?
  9. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Ok, So my 159 owning friend has all but convinced me that for months now i have in fact been misspelling Alfa on my car wish list. Misspellings include: Audi, VW, and BMW. I am reasonably reassured about servicing and maintenance and prepared to wait and search for a car with two key fobs...
  10. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Talking about some heavy and meaty Knobs in here. I was looking for a more premium look and found this: Shift Knobs | TWM Performance Shift Knob Store and this scroll down on the page. Raceseng Shift Knobs - By Product What design would you pick if you where going to buy one and why? Palm...
  11. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Just in case nobody else has posted it - a right hand drive 2.0 V6 turbo is on Ebay! http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1996-ALFA-ROMEO-GTV-2-0-V6-Turbo-/231697231232
  12. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    as some of you know my mm was in the body shop for some minor repairs, went to pick her up after the job was done , when i saw her my heart sunk, the bumper looked bloody orange , she looked like she was wearing a pair of orange pants,i told the bloke would you be happy if this was your car and...
  13. Alfa MiTo
    Hi guys Been pondering over the idea of swapping my 147 DC for a Mito cloverleaf. I'm yet to try a Cloverleaf so can't comment on the engine or performance. But I'm here to talk about the interior, the one I sat in today was a 1.4 TB veloce. I straight away noticed that the interior was in no...
  14. General Motoring Discussion
    So, the car itch has been well and truly alive as of late, and I need someone to talk me out of it. Job is going bad, family making me spend more than I earn, car taxes/insurance expensive as heck and have no secure parking spot … yet I am sorely tempted :inlove: :inlove: Maserati GranSport 4.2...
  15. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Righty. I think my centre cat is dying. I put it back in after 8 weeks of decatted joy. The thing feels restrictive when you just huff through it. So, I'm looking at 200 cpi cats. This is a 1.6 16v ts engine. No, I don't want a 2 litre..:) So, what's the difference tween the £90 and the £220...
  16. The Technology Section
    Didn't know whether to post this in here or the general, but here goes https://www.yhasi.com/index.php May give it a try after some research, not read all the details yet, cheaper than some of the OBDC readers, and of more use than the now redundant Multiecuscan and cables I have.:)
  17. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    TDI Tuning have Alfa compatible boxes for about £80 available, reduced price versus their newer chips (approx. £200+) I presume to clear old stock.. In an ideal world, I'd want to take the car to a reputable tuning company to talk to a real person about my wants/needs (would also like an EGR...
  18. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I'm sure there must be loads of threads about exactly this, but I can't find anything suitable. I have a 156 JTS Ti, which I think came with different rated springs and dampers. I don't know if it's actually any lower than a Veloce. In my ownership the suspension's been rebuilt and polyflexed...
  19. South Africa
    Right, I'm being press ganged into a company pension fund and I'm not sure I'm happy about it. Not because I'm a hooligan who doesn't want to think about the future but because I'm highly sceptical about the long term strength of the Rand and pension funds are limited to 25% offshore investment...
  20. South Africa
    Seems my GTV has one, started it up this evening, reversed it about 5 meters and saw drops on the ground, got out to investigate, definitely oil. Some expletive were uttered and the car was put back under the cover. Not before I drove it up and down probably 50 meters to be sure it was actually...
