  1. Give up on my tired 147 JTD for a freshed 1.6 TSpark? Or keep going for 200k?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi All, I'd like to hear some thoughts. I have my 147 JTDM TI. It's just passed 148000. Last year was not a good year for it. I hit a truck tyre on the M53 that took out my bumber and aircon rad and bent some bits. I was so attached that I brought it back Class C from the insurer for £400 and...

    My battery is only 2 years old and starts the car fine but I have been getting the VDC ABS Hill holder errors on start up if the car is left for more than 3 days even though the car starts well enough and does not crank slowly.

  5. Tired of bad service experiences

    General Alfa Discussion
    It seems every time I entrust one of my cars to somebody else I have a bad experience and I end up wishing I had enough space to all my own servicing. Twice now I have had cars that have come back from a garage with kerbed wheels and problems they seem unwilling or unable to fix. Are there no...

  7. A tired topic - 147 keys, and immobiliser transponders

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi guys, It's been a long time but like many do, I came back. And I'm back with a problem. The 2002 147 we bought had only one working key and a "spare" which is cut correctly, but the immobiliser rejects it. We were trusting to fate but it came unstuck today - the key dropped from my pocket at...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    The centre console on my 147 is looking tired and dated...Has anyone ever done anything to improve theirs? Its sort of screaming out for it as that ally silver look is just a bit naff.

    GT has now getting on at 80K and having taken a fair abuse from mostly country roads it's time to spend a bit to 'tighten' the handling up in an attempt to get it back to when I got the car out of the wrapper. Any of you more experienced GT or 147 owners out there : advice on most effective...
