    I have a cup 3.0 V6 and I have a error code P1691come up yet again. It don't do it often, probably once every 3 months. I know what the code is but I don't know what causes it. It only happens when I start the car up. it ticks over fine but when the accelerator is pressed it won't go over 850...
  2. Alfa MiTo
    .......and i loved it. I purchased my first car 3 weeks ago, 2004 1.4 Punto Sporting (95 bhp) see attached. The MiTo is my uncles car and was itching to have a go. What impressed me the most was the power delivery and how well it can hold the road, i did not expect it to be anything special...

    OK so after all this CV Boots installation problems, I did what I do "better" than mechanics and this is care for the paintwork lol. Also I wanted to take some pictures with the freshly painted lights as well :) Spend a few hours this morning... washed her thoroughly. Clay bared in detail...

  6. Alfa Giulietta
    My 159 is in for a few days warranty work, so have a Giulietta as a loan car. First impressions a bit of a mix. I have the 140 JTDm, so not really easy to compare with the 159. Obviously consumption is wayyy better (34 vs 49) and I do like how it handles. Trim is a bit disappointing, but then it...

    At 3PM I pick up my GQV. Time certainly moves slow when you are waiting to collect your new car. Just wish the weather wasn't so bad. Ah well, excuse to wash it I suppose. Excited!

  10. Alfa MiTo
    Oil, oil filter change and new spark plugs and today I have a vibration noise when accelerating in 1st and 2nd gears down in the low rev range between 1-2000 revs? Problem is, I can't get to the garage who did it because I'm working all week and it's bank holiday Monday so can't take it then...

  12. Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Finally got round to changing all four, switched from Pirelli PZeros to Kumho KU31. Very pleased, difference is amazing, the PZeros had become so noisy and were basically shot after only 20,000kms. The Kumhos were a bargain and drive really well. 185euros each, fitted.

  20. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I fear the good weather will be turning for the worst soon as my 147 outside temp display is constantly warning me of minus temps and "possible ice on road." Every time i get into the car. Anyone had this happen on their info display? Sometimes it will read out normal but in the past week it is...
