  1. Tesco Momentum 99 octane.

    Alfa Giulietta
    I've put a months worth of this stuff in my 150 MA Sprint, she picks up as cleanly & goes faster than the 'posh' Shell petrol I normally use, the consumption is a little worse but the fuel is cheaper. Has anyone else used this fuel for longer than I have & have there been any ill effects?

  3. Tesco Fuel

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Oh dear what have I done :( On my way home from work I popped into Tesco at Saffrom Walden and filled up the 156 JTS. Less than half a mile from the fill up the car started to seriously missfire, and has continued to do so. The missfire causes the ECU engine alarm, which it records as a...
  4. Tesco 99 better pull than V-Power

    Alfa MiTo
    Aftynoon Mito friends, Whilst i am a petrol snob and have been using Shell V-Power for months now, i filled up with Tesco Momentum 99 yesterday (mainly due to nowhere near a Shell at the time) I now can't help feeling that the Tesco 99 pulls a lot faster than the V-Power in the 155TB. Anyone...

  6. Tesco Home Delivery Van reversed into my 159

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    His guys, a Tesco van has just reversed into my 159. Nothing major but there is a few bad scratches. There were a few pieces of plastic underneath the car, and also a piece of black foam material. The bumper feels very sturdy still, was just wondering if it's worth going through their insurance...

  8. Tesco Sell Cars

    General Alfa Discussion
    But not Alfa's, apparently, not even in the drop down menu. In fact Carcraft are the same. Why? Should we be suing them for product bias and discrimination or just not buy any stuff off them in protest. We should stand up for our rights, protest at your local store I say. :mad::lol:
  9. Tesco super unleaded.

    General Alfa Discussion

  10. Tesco Wiper Blades for 159/Brera/Spider :)

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    When in need of new wiper blades I've usually gone for the genuine article on previous cars and being 'in the trade' had a substantial discount on what can be an expensive consumable/service item. Out of curiosity I had a browse thru the catalogue attached to the shelf in my local Halfords...
  11. tesco flat wiper blades on a 33

    Alfa 33, Sud & Sprint
    Has anyone fitted tesco flat wiper blades to the front windscreen on a 33? In the past i have fitted standard bosch blades and have tried with spoilers to prevent lifting. I went back to standard alfa romeo ones as all others are...
  12. A few bits at Tesco

    Car Detailing
    Popped into to tesco today and noticed they have some new additions to the 9 piece set we all got a while back. Firstly a 5 pack o MF cloths for £2 which seem decent and an alternative to the poundland ones which are impossible to get. Then theres various takes on parts of the 9 piece set...
  13. Tesco 99 Octane

    Alfa GTA
    Hi, Would just first like to say a big hello to the GTA forum (Intro Hello => I just bought a 156 GTA and would like to know if anyone regularly uses Tesco's super unleaded / Tesco 99 Octane. I think it's...
  14. Someone reversed into me car in tesco's car park

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    :cry::cry::cry::cry: Why do people not look where they are going when they are reversing out of a car park space in a busy car park. Big scuff and scratches on the back door and wheel arch. :rant:
  15. Flyered - Redditch Tesco

    West Midlands
    My 156 got flyered in Redditch Tesco over the bank holiday weekend. Already a member of the forum though. Surprised it hasn't been flyered before, it's quite often parked there.
  16. Tesco's NI Motoring Accessories

    Northern Ireland
    I have posted this here because it only effects us and nowhere else in the UK. Why do Tesco's in northern ireland carry green P plates, surely these are of no use to us?
  17. Car Care Extended Warranty - Tesco, CSMA or Alfa

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    My Brera's warranty ends on 28 April 09 so I am looking around for an extension. From what you fellas have written on previous threads I understand that CCP provides all warranties but I have been quoted 'around' £350 by Alfa, £250 by Tesco, but only £148 ( with 10% on line discount ) from CSMA...

  19. Tesco Warranty

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    OK so you would n't put their oil in your car, but as the owner of an 8 year old relatively complex and inherently fragile Spider it seems to me that Tesco's comprehensive warranty of £339 per annum covering parts and labour seems like a good deal to avoid any major scary bills. Anyone got any...
