  1. (another) PAS fluid topic, HELP needed

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hey guys. So, i've been searching (a lot) around here, and on the web on general but I'm still a bit confused about what I should do. Long story short, my '06 159 still have the red fluid, from factory I think. It's level on the reservoir is a bit low and I'd like to put some to get it back up...
  2. Looking for topic

    Alfa 164 & 166
    Hi Chaps, I'm looking for a thread I read a month or so back that was about a private Alfa Museum somewhere in Italy that was run and owned by a bunch of Private owners. Its location was a secret and was filled with what these owners classified as 'true Alfas' prior to partnership with Fiat...

  7. Non-Alfa related topic: Heartbleed

    South Africa
    I get the feeling that this is something one should be very concerned about. Heartbleed Bug Why are people not wringing their hands more loudly on the local front? Which SA and Alfa sites are vulnerable?

  11. 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...
  12. Totally off topic (Rhodesia)

    South Africa

I am trying to collect some Camouflage uniform and...

  14. Airsoft Sport/Hobby (non motoring topic)

    South Africa
    So I believe I am not the only member here on the forum that is into airsoft! I just ran into Alfi on the airsoftza forum. Good to know that a fellow Alfa Romeo driver also has the same interest as I do. A brief summary: Airsoft is basically the same as paintball but instead of shooting paint...
