  3. Warm up time (1.9 JTDm)

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    My 159 takes ages to warm up in cold weather especially with the heater on. When it gets up to 90 it stays there as it should. When I bought the car it didn't sit at 90 so I replaced the thermostat with one off ebay which cured that issue. How long do other people's 1.9s take to warm up? Is...

It's taken me a few weeks to decide but I have reluctantly come to the decision to sell my beloved Quadrifoglio...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I've got 58 plate ***** romeo 159 on 140000 miles and it's ready for a service. Obviously I don't want to pay for the labour as it usual cost more the parts so the question is what do I need and where can I get the parts from and is it easy to do? Thanks

    So after noticing my inner nearside CV boot was split last year, I got the boot replaced and joint re-packed with grease - but alas, it's now clicking away at low-speed manouvering/parking. Gave the shaft a decent shake yesterday and there's in/out play in the inner joint... Went to compare the...
