  1. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Just a very big thank you for Lawrence and his colleague at Autolusso Bournemouth yesterbay (saturday).

  2. General Motoring Discussion
    Yesterday I was dismantling an old Alfa 156 strut to get a decent mount and some spare brake line clips for my GTA. Since I wasn't bothered at all about the spring or shock I just shoved my spring compressors on and tightened it down, not paying too much attention to correct spring compressor...
  3. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Phoned them on Sat, to see if they had a spider brake pedal switch. He said he hadn't, but to try Eurocarparts. I ordered one locally and collected it today. Cost? £5.40 inc VAT. Ebayers, think they are selling gold dust and range from nearly a tenner & top price is 17 quid with postage. Thank...
  4. Alfa GTA

  5. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Looking into changing the radiator myself, the parts are on the way and a few people have been kind enough to off to help me out. I have been reading some threads that explain that the front bumper needs to come off to change the rad so does anyone know of any guides or have any tips of how to...
  6. North East
    Received my first 'thumbs up' from a fellow Alfa driver today on the A66 heading towards Middlesbrough. A fellow GT owner. It just made me smile :thumbs:

  8. South Africa
    This morning some dude in a hissing and puffing GTi tried to play with the 159 and lost severely. He was first in front of me so I stayed on his bumper. He had a Race Performance sticker on and you could hear the chuff-chuff-booosssssst coming from under the bonnet. Just before the next robot I...

    Don't know if we're allowed to give recommendations but: I ordered part of door seal for my Spider on Monday (£9.50). It arrived Special Delivery Tuesday morning. 5 minutes to fit and away we go. Superb service from Alfaworkshop.
  10. Alfa MiTo
    Hi, After seeing a few threads in here about first service costs on the Mito, just wanted to say that I took my Mito 135 Tct to Autolusso on Friday for the 18k service and was really impressed with the service and the quality of the work. Really helpful guys there and I'll highly recommend...
  11. Rant Room
    I went to my local Alfa dealer today, Autoworld of Chesterfield to buy a 'genuine' oil filter for my 07 GT JTDM. After waiting 15 minutes in the Parts Department for someone to come to me, I was eventually told that the price of the filter would be £13.54 inc vat! Well, they can inc what they...

  13. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    After a towbar install I had an airbag light lingering on my TBi. That finally pushed me to buy a cable (cheapo e-bay) and registered version of the FES. After some modifications to the cable (needed to destroy R04 resistor) - all works flawlessly - error code cleared and plethora of options...

  16. General Alfa Discussion
    Just had my cam belt done on my J12 by Tony at Ital Autos in Chesterfield. Took her for a blast around the peak district on the way home (slight detour but well worth it :) and she's running and sounding sweet. Can't recommend them enough. Quick and super friendly service. Cheap too! Will be...
  17. Alfa Giulietta
    I dropped my Giulietta off this morning at Guest Alfa in Solihull for its first service and picked it up this evening. I'm very pleased for a number of reasons. First up, the booking process over the phone was easy and I was able to get a courtesy car (which was confirmed by text). I gave them...

    in an amazing article in the top gear new cars guide the 159 sw is torn to pieces. very harsh as they say, avoid this car... dont buy one and we cant believe this car is still in production. was quite shocked how scathing they were
  19. Alfa MiTo
    I feel it only right after expressing my grave dissatisfaction with the appalling service from Alexanders I should express my thanks and total satisfaction from Benfield and Lookers. When we bought our car from Lookers in Sheffield the salesman Andy was superb and totally professional in his...
