  1. Today I discovered...

    Alfa Giulietta
    ...that the Giulietta has a little hidden aetting to make your headlights dimmer. Which is why mine looked like a cheap torch with a half flat battery. At least they look like a cheap torch with a decent battery now. But whyyyyyyy? The headlight pattern is crap anyway (compared to my old MK5 golf) 😄
  2. What's on my drive today?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I am running out of space. S3 is in the garage also. Is it time to sell something?:rotate:
  3. viewed a GT today with crushed sills - advice required

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I viewed a 1.9 jtdm GT today, which drove well, no issues I could see with engine and mechanicals, interior was fine, paint in general was ok, with a few scuffs and scratches that could be improved with the polishing mop and made more presentable, but would require bodyshop and paint to be...
  4. What have you done to your Alfa 75/RZ/SZ today?

    Alfa 75, RZ, SZ
  5. MOT for the cup today

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    It failed. Not too bad. Drop links both sides,a CV boot is split and needs replacing, handbrake just below min so I guess adjustment or new pads and bizarrely the hazard warning lights don’t work. Indicators work fine on the stalk...perhaps a switch issue. Im getting old for doing it Ipoh the...
  6. So today my Alfa ownership ended

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    So my Twinnie decided to day to do it's head. Driving to work, and it started to issue forth with white smelly smoke. Luckily I hadn't gone too far from home so turned straight round and parked her up. But for me it's the end of a turbulent journey, I have put so much into keeping it going but I...
  7. Giulietta cambelt done today

    Alfa Giulietta
    As it was a nice day, and the cambelt was coming up to 4 years old on our G I decided to change it along with the waterpump today. The old belt and waterpump defitely showed signs of wear, although I don't think anything was close to failing. It wasn't too difficult, apart from this guide...
  8. GT in to Autolusso today. The dreaded swirl flaps and deletion.

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    So, the GT I bought the other day has had its trip to the lads at Autolusso. I got it for a steal, but there are some issues with her. Potential Swirl flap problems too. I just wish the previous owner had that sorted when they recommended it in 2015! So, they’ll be taking the manifold off soon...
  9. What have I done to the 147 today?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Although this sounds like a 70s mother in law joke I’ve found out she didn’t like “that horrible beeping” so has been switching it off, Found a new light unit (both parts) for £30 on the eBay and the dent will hopefully pop out easily and it could’ve been much worse I guess, no bumper or glass...

    Alfa GTV picked up from Kevin at Sussex Alfa Romeo today. Rear subframe sorted, poly bushed, boot lid painted and new MOT. Very pleased. Car now polished and looking good.
  16. I got a real treat out in Montreal today...

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    I've been on holiday in Canada this week and driving down to Boston next week before flying home. Only seen two afla in the last week, a new guilia and one stelvio, both in mont tremblant. Soooo wish I had my brera to show them a real good looking Alfa 😁 But then today we were driving into...
  17. Cleaned my inlet manifold today

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Cleaned my inlet manifold today - With Pictures So today I began cleaning my inlet manifold. I removed it yesterday, what an awful job. I've actually gone the whole way and split the manifold in half and completely decarbonized with a dremel and wire cup brush attachment. If I'm honest, if I...
  18. Bought my Alfa today!

    Introduce Yourself
    Hi, just introducing myself. A new Alfa Mito owner, bought my 59 plate yellow Mito this afternoon, love it! It would be great to chat to other Mito owners for some information. Graham
  19. Illustrations of what today's car may have looked like years ago

    General Motoring Discussion
    Not just a cracking idea, but these illustrations are amusing and rather well drawn, too. I especially like the 19070s Prius, and the Audi R8 sketch looks just like a 70's concept sketch. The Range Rover is...
  20. On my drive to work today.....

    General Alfa Discussion
    I saw 4 Giulia's, 4 Mito's and 3 Giulietta's. I also saw a couple of 159's and a 156. It's only a short 13 mile commute and that's the most I've seen in one go... Obviously selling a few around Stoke.
