  7. Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi all, This kind of thread works well on several other forums I use and often sparks some great discussions / ideas. Just post up what it is you've done and feel free to comment on others posts, but be nice :lol: Today - tracking set to zero toe as recommended on here. Needed doing as it's...
  8. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I'd been finding recently that under acceleration it only really got going over 4500 rpm and 60 to 70 mph took ages. I took a gamble and had a new MAF fitted. ( air box bolts were seized so needed cutting off and new bolts put on). Much more like the 156 now and much more like I remember the...

    Clare's car needed some cosmetic TLC to go with some work it had done over the last week (two new door check straps & the horrid hatch creak sorted). As the 500 has sent it into semi-retirement, today was the day:D Spent a little over four hours on it. Knackered now but pleased with the...
  11. Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Had a fantastic day today with the family here. The icing on the cake was when we left, a Typhoon flew over slowly, and when I got back to the SW I saw a gorgeous 159 3.2 Q4 opposite. Fully loaded with a private plate to boot too. Marvellous!
  12. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Man Time today involved flushing out the old coolent and replacing the coolent reservoir. My original one has completely perished and has lots of little cracks all over it which I ignored. I noticed some coolent loss and steam coming out of the bonnet when in traffic so had a closer look and...
  13. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Some of you may remember I spent some time behind the wheel of a 156 2.5 V6 a few months ago and was more than a little moved by the experience, waxing lyrical in the 'Unexpected V6 Appreciation Thread'...
  14. Alfa MiTo
    Hi, My Missus is having her MiTo 1.3 JTDM-2 delivered today and bought it from Lloyds Car Select as they were cheaper than a dealer could offer.- Picked it up for £13,500. However, the car was meant to be delivered by trailer today, but she's just had a call that they are driving it 50 odd...

  19. South Africa
    So, dusted off my Alfetta and took it to the track today. Short track day, only 9am to 11am, but managed to get about 5 sessions in! Car ran well, overheated in one session, but there is a water leak somewhere that I can't find. Grip was on the lower end today - took 3 laps to get the tyres hot...
  20. Alfa Giulietta
    On the cars first anniversary I completed a the extra gloss Autoglymage with a clay treatment of the front bumper.I was wondering; Stone chipping was mainly on the lower chin area . Would a 3m clear film cover this area?
