  1. Giulia Veloce test drive

    Alfa Giulia
    Yesterday I had a test drive in a 2 year old Misano Blue Veloce, not a long one and the roads were wet but enough to get a sense of the car... First impressions were the turbines are much better in the flesh than pictures, although who wouldn't want QV style alloys. The colour is amazing even...

  8. Stepper motor test

    Alfa 164 & 166
    Dear friends, This is a RHD model and I removed the instrument binnacle to fix some non operating warning lights. I had this problem with air distribution. Air comes mostly from top vents to windscreen and a bit towards front. This is a problem because cold air makes windscreen condense from...
  9. MoT test passed, but...

    Alfa 164 & 166
    Took the 166 in for its MoT yesterday - which it passed, with a couple of advisories. One of which was that the nearside ball joint boot is damaged... which is on the lower arm that was replaced no more than a month ago... Now - I bought this part new (an expensive OEM item) intending to fit...

  15. Modern Classics magazine test: 75V6 v 190 Cossie

    General Motoring Discussion
    pinged into my inbox at work - I *think* it's called Modern Classics magazine, features this month a test between 75 V6 and the 190 Cossie. It really is a 'plus ca change...' review... the conclusion is now as it was when these cars were new 30 years ago; Head v heart. The review presents a...

  17. Window Stop - IQ test?

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hello All, I am having issues getting a 2001 GTV auto drop window mechanism to play ball. As it is on a new (to me) car, I don't know if it ever worked... the stops near to the lock mechanism at the top of the window don't meet. Originally the bronze coloured stop attached to the door was...
  18. Test drove a GT 3.2

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Compared to the 159 3.2 JTS, the engine is much nicer. The acceleration was immediate and quite potent. The only issues it has is there's a slight knock from the front suspension (drop links, arms or bushes), and there's a blow from the rear box. The Busso sounded quite sweet, although there...
  19. How to test alarm sound?

    Alfa Giulietta
    Recently got myself a Giulietta, but realise I have no idea what the alarm sounds like. It would be useful to know. How do I set it off? Maybe an obvious one! :thinking:
