  1. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Having an occasional spluttery/smokey start, which can be avoided by turning the key to MAR a few times in a row and going through a few glow plug cycles before going for the start... Don't think it's the battery/alternator, as the voltage showing through my ODB car health app is usually 12.7...
  2. Alfa Giulietta
    Well I have decided to start a little Giulietta project as my gearbox is still not playing ball - it's now developed a whine! Grrrr! So I have ordered a reconditioned box (snicker) clutch, DMF, wheels and tyres for her I've already lowered her and done the brakes! Currently she's in the body...

  5. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Not all the time though, tends to be when cold (so early morning or late evening). Usual stuff, ABS fail, ESR fail, Power Steering fail but when the car is going everything is fine. Not a hint of trouble. Is this a usual thing for 147's? I did take it back to the garage where it was bought from...
  6. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I have spent so much money on my car it is borderline ridiculous. The previous owner obviously neglected it. If i saw him again i would probably kill him. I have put a donor engine in it because he obviously thought these cars did not need oil so the big end went.its had new twin cats on the...
  7. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I've had my GTV for 3 years and they've been very enjoyable years but also quite expensive. As well as the £200 annual services, I've had to fit a new exhaust, discs and pads all round, clutch slave cylinder, new tyres plus lots of other small jobs like resetting the window glass and seat belt...

    When was the last time you threw a sicky at work?
  9. Alfa GTA
    Hi All, I am (again) thinking of throwing out all stereo system components from the GTA. Never use it anyway... Has anybody done it? How much weight do you save by removing all speakers (incl. the sub) plus the power amp?
  10. Poll Room
    Have you ever thown away a fully written angry or agitating reply to a post after thinking more calmly about it? I have done it many times here and in other forums.

  12. General Alfa Discussion
    I just left my 147 on my drive over lunchtime. When I came out with the intention of giving it the first proper wash for over a month I spotted a half-brick lying near my car. I nudged it into a corner wondering how it got there. Then I turned round and saw large dent above the rear wheel...
