  1. Brera door possible terrible error!

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi Everyone, Following another guide tightening up the guide rails for the drivers window I noticed 2 of the door lock screws / bolts were missing that hold the lock in place where it hits the striker plate. I replaced them with ones I had lying around. I noticed the lower one went in with the...
  2. Do +130% bulbs help for the GT's terrible dipped beams?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    One of these days I'm going to do a full write-up on my GT project guys. "When it's done" lol. For now I'm trying to solve the abysmal dipped beam headlights on a 2007 (non-HID) GT. At first I thought it was because they were improperly set so they were pointing too low, but I'm starting to...
  3. 147 - Overheating and Generally Terrible

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, I realise the sort of problems I'm having aren't uncommon - I've read other threads, but am generally looking for some sort of feedback along the lines of "Yeah, mine was doing that, I fixed it by ..." or any sort of educated pointer in what direction I should take. The Car '06 2.0...
  4. 147 terrible ride

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I've got a 7yr old 147 JTDm 16v with about 150 000km (about 94000miles) on the clock and the ride is really terrible especially from the front axle. Going over ridges is the worst. It crashes over them with quite a bit of thudding (not rattling) I know the engine mounts really need doing and...

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hello All, Recently i installed Rear Powerflex bushes on my 2.0 TS GTV Phase 2, and the rear suspension has become quite problematic when the car would go into potholes and i want to revert back to original as i also don't see any noticable improvement on the handling. My Powerflex Item...
  6. 159 1.9 terrible noise (video)

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi Last week I noticed this terrible squeaking noise (immediately after I bumped up the tyre pressure) whenever I turn the steering wheel. It seems to be getting louder every day, very audible outside the car as well (people literally turning heads around whenever I park). Any ideas what that...
  7. Terrible Alfa Romeo Driving

    General Motoring Discussion
    :rant: Had the misfortune to today follow a Red Giulletta driven on the M54 southbound at about 4pm today reg number DV61L*B, his driving was absolutely disgraceful, dangerously weaving in and out of traffic undertaking and tail gateing. The type of driving to be expected from a BMW or Audi...
  8. Terrible wheel alignment

    Alfa GTA
    I thought I'd start a new thread so I'm not 'piggybacking on someone elses rant'. So, following on from the lack of customer service I described previously about my recent trips to AL and jobs done with little care.. I went to get the tracking checked as it felt terrible since the suspension...
  9. Would this be a terrible idea?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Car Engine Remapping I fully appreciate that an Alfatune remap would be much more desirable but I also got told that a tuning box was a terrible idea. As it turns out, it's provided me with 6 months of enjoyable woooooosh with no clutch slippage, dmf failure, injector issues or spontaneous...
  10. Terrible MPG

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    My 2007 159 Sportwagon 1.9 jtdm Qtronic only returns me 28 mpg around town.... I have only owned it a couple of weeks and am finding it a little concerning. I notice when I accelerate the instantaneous MPG really drops off, on the motorway I gat around 38mpg. My injector values all read good I...

  14. Spider Headlight Issue - Terrible Dipped Beam Lighting

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I have a 2001 2.0 TS Spider. The dipped lights are terrible. The main beam is brilliant. Are there bulbs that someone here has tried that, if swapped with the normal ones, give a lot more light and I’ll be able to see better. I don’t want to change too much or get into wiring modifications. I...
  15. Alfa Offroad- terrible ORTambo experience- on re-entry TO Rsa

    South Africa
    All I can say at present is that never, ever have I been subjected to such a ridiculous cross examination upon arriving at the hub for umpteenth time. Shocking tactics, at best. Maybe they want me to believe I am anything other than an honest non-citizen. Approval rating gone way, way negative...

    I didn't have the code for the factory stereo so i bought a new Pioneer unit and reading how bad the alfa speakers were i bought some alpine replacements too. When i came to fit the speakers though i see they've already been replaced with decent JBL speakers front and back using the proper...

    General Alfa Discussion
    just a quick post to let others know of my experience of this company. I purchased my 156 that was received as a trade in by this company. In the three years I have owned the car I have bought several parts from this company in the cars life including a full cambelt and tensioners etc. The car...
  20. Terrible service from Kingsway Tyres Lincolnshire

    General Alfa Discussion
    Recently had 2 tyres replaced at Kingsway in Immingham and what terrible service! Took all day to replace, kept telling me to come back in an hour. Didn't put the spare back in the boot properly, just chucked it in on top of other things I had in there (Gym bag, clothes shopping etc.). The...
