  1. Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hello everyone [emoji112] Took car in today for 2 tyres and tracking. Two Avon's fitted very nicely but followed with a chat from the person fitting. He didn't bother doing tracking due to play in the inner tie rods. Thought that was fair enough asked there hourly rate and it was £45 an hour...

  8. Alfa Giulia
    Hi all thoughts on some options for Track day wheels and tyres for a quad? 1 New extra set of 18/19ins wheels with track only tyres (toyo r888 etc) Or 2 Second set of tyres and change them round for track days Or 3 One extra set of 19s with MP4S on and another set with corsa tyres on for...
  9. General Motoring Discussion
    Ok, had an e-mail and apparently it’s £299 to t1t about in an m series Bimmer for the day. This strikes me as damn expensive as I am sure I have seen plenty of £150 ‘super car experience day’ type guff. Problem is I am a deeply cynical type and expect that half of these things are totally...
  10. Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider

    Possibly you have seen this video already. Davide C has found a 75 in a barn and has a project to convert it into a track car. Not sure if part 2 has been uploaded yet: Nice joke about the wipers and what maybe inside the boot... ;-)
  12. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    A week ago I hit a rubbish bag on the road going around 50 KM/h in the right front corner of my 156, the bag must have been filled with books, I can see papers all over the road, but the bag was too dense to be just sheets, there was a loud bang and I felt the right front of the car jump up...
  13. Alfa Giulietta
    Or have you already? Specifically I have a MA170 and tempted but concerned. Taken the GTV many times to different tracks but don't stay out for longer than 20minutes before letting us rest and cool. Following the cool down lap advice and change the oil more frequently. Just a little...
  14. Alfa Stelvio
    Worth watching just for the auto subtitles and the various phonetic names for the cars.
  15. Alfa GTA
    Hi, I am taking my GTA to Llandow on Thursday 25th October. This is a private track day organised by the SportsMaserati forum. Max 24 places. 8 on track at a time, 20 min slots. It will be mainly Porsches and Maseratis, plus couple of Alfas so far. There are a couple of spaces left. If anyone...
  16. The Classic Alfa Romeos
    The VCC had a track day at Goodwood yesterday. Only a couple of historic Alfas there, a 1930's 8C 2300 and Alex Pilkington in her 6C 1750. But nevertheless there were pre war Riley's, Aston Martins, Napiers, Austins, Bentleys etc etc. It was well attended by spectators to, we had to park off...
  17. Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I’ll regret asking this but I do have my reasons....... I am due to have both lower control arms replaced, it has been mentioned that I wouldn’t need to have the car tracked after replacement? What is the general consensus, I think it will need a 4 wheel alignment but has anyone ever replaced...
  18. Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I was just wondering if anyone has fitted these Meyle HD Track arms? Note the bush isn’t OE Standard which ive found that the OE style design is a bit of an Achilles heel for the upper arms on the Brera/159/Spider I think a rubber type design may work much better, and maybe last much longer...
  19. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
