In Feb I will have owned my Giulia for 3 years, many people with cars on 3 year leases will be moving on to something else (hopefully another Giulia). Myself, I intend keeping my Giulia for many many years. So why am I doing this? Well I am of a certain age and with retirement will not be in a...
Hi everybody! I hope you are having a good week so far? For all those of you who requested a special video on the GT - it's taken a while but here it is!! Hope you enjoy and don't forget to subscribe to my channel and like of course!
I am looking to get rid of my Audi A6 saloon as it is now impractical for my hobby and family (triathlon needs bike space, and roof bars ruin the audi roof with a scuffed footprint, and need an estate for the new dog).
I have had a quick look over ebay and autotrader at what 159 estates...
Alfa Spider 2.4 JTDM -
The usual issue, i have now locked them open & the car does not hunt in a morning & runs much better - what happens if i just leave them locked open ? its not due a cambelt for a while & it makes sense to do the belt & the flaps all at once ?
Will it cause any issues...
New issue just popped through the letterbox and it seems Stuart Gallagher is running a QV for a while. With Alfa options including the different silver Alloys it weighs in at £73k.
Positive comments for the first month only losing ground to the German rivals with the infotainment and ceramic...
So after 4 years and over 25,ooo kms driving (lots of town driving, fair amount of motorway driving) I thought I'd report on the use of the K&N filter I installed in my S4 spider.
It is the drop in type, fits the standard airbox, no mods.
I read in several places that people say they don't...
My GT 3.2 seems to be running lean. I've had some issues with a check engine light (p1177 and p1178) running on lpg. Replaced all 6 coils and now the light stays off.
However when I use my obd reader with Torque on my Android phone I can see the long term fuel trim is high for both banks (16%...
Well, a month in and I finally have something worth saying about the Giulietta. I may as well say something about it I guess.
Forgive me, but I have done this rather late at night, so many spelling errors are possible.
First Impression and Design
I think the first thing that strikes me is...
Has anybody done OBD test with parameteres Short Term Fuel Trim and Long Term Fuel Trim in Giulietta 1.4 MultiAir (after lifting).
A would like to compare them to results from my test, because they are strange, I think.
I've been suffering with intermittent engine management warnings and p1177/p1178 errors, both 'stored' and 'fatal'. After clearing the errors they stay clear for a while, from a few days to a week and then return.
I've replaced one lambda sensor as it was producing a flat 0.2v signal, but...
I'm looking to hire a 4c for a short period of time - a week / 10 days maybe. Its for present for my wifes 40th .. shes a long time Alfa fan and loves the 4c and 8c (but I doubt I can get an 8c lol)
I've searched all the usual "supercar" hire companies - but no-one is interested in...
I would like to request some help solving this one as im running out of ideas
I have a 56 plate GT with standard Radio/CD stereo, not Bose.
For about a year now it has been intermittently cutting out for between 1 minute and 45 minutes and sometimes not working at all.
I have replaced the...

Need some 235/40 R19 for the 159, the Bridgestone Potenza RE050A (FZ variant) on there have done a not too shabby 21K.
I see lots good reviews for the Uniroyal Rainsport 3, they all start "just fitted and are great" or "had them for 300 miles and are great" -...
My girlfriend and I have been looking at getting a second hand Mito 1.3 JTD from 2009, with around 43.000 miles on it.
How do they generally hold up in the long run? :) Does anyone here own a 1.3 jtd, with a lot of miles on it, and if so, what kind of problems have you...
