  2. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    What a piece of crap the standard jack handle is. Slow puncture this am, corrected it and set off home this pm. Went down again so I had to use the jack and spacesaver. I'm a big boy and struggled so I'd hate to be a seven stone weakling trying to sort out a puncture alone and in the dark. The...

  5. Car Detailing
    I just got this cool new app for the iPhone, Timelapse Pro, so to test it out I thought I'd leave it running while I detailed this afternoon. The photos were shot at 10 second intervals, over about an hour and a half, and then it combines them into a video - pretty neat! I then did a master edit...

    Just wondering what constitutes a mod that the insurance company needs to know about - does replacing the filter element with a high flow one such as k&n, a new exhaust system, changing lights etc. Just curious as i'm doing bits and pieces to mine and wondered what to tell the insurance company.
  7. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Had a problem with my 159 Ti a week or so ago where the front left suspension would clunk every time I went over a speed bump or rough bit of road surface. It sounded really bad inside the cabin and I hardly drove it whilst waiting for a free slot at the dealer. Took it to the same main Alfa...

  15. General Alfa Discussion
    After telling a friend I was thinking about a 147 I got told I must be mad. Kept saying it will cost a fortune in repairs and will be forever off the road and in the garage. He has a Audi A4 which just cost him £700 to get through it's MOT. I love Alfa's style but the reliability of them...
