  1. Alfa Giulia
    Hi all, I'm intending to place an order for a new QV early next year, once the updated model has been launched. It will be a family car (the nippers are small enough that they don't need tons of space in the back, but big enough that they don't require prams etc!) that I also plan to take to...
  2. Alfa Giulia
    So I had my first service done at Beechdale recently - all went OK the loan car was a Hyundai IO though - strange little car which seemed to go slower the more i pressed the accelerator down , The tyre condition was shown as low on the front inside tyres so I emailed them to ask if that was...
  3. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    I’m getting the lower control arms replaced soon but I’m confused at what the correct settings should be for my Brera - I found these settings off ‘Old engineer’ in another sticky.....Are these correct?
  4. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    My 156 SW is still juddering after having the front wheels balanced and the tracking checked. Even at low speeds it is felt, and can be bad but as speed increases it's less noticeable but still there.
  5. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I have the pleasure or not to try and sort the tracking on my 156 and 147 after a suspension change . I bought a Trakrite to check the toe in/out. as it was obvious they were not right. they have now been adjusted to zero degrees. The problem is the steering wheel is now sitting at 10 o'clock so...
  6. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I am contemplating the wiseness, or not, of taking a 2.0 TS Spider on track days. What are people's thoughts ? Is the TS Spider robust enough to take some prolonged track action without breaking down ? If it is, what are the key upgrades required to get the most from it. I was thinking at...
  7. General Alfa Discussion
    Hi all, Apologies, I posted this in the 916 GTV forum, but it's a niche request so perhaps it'll be better here! I've moved down to CERN near Geneva for a year or so, and given the close proximity to mountain roads I had to take the GTV! However on the long drive down, and more so since, it...
  8. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi all, I've moved down to CERN near Geneva for a year or so, and given the close proximity to mountain roads I had to take the GTV! However on the long drive down, and more so since, it has developed a slight steering wheel wobble when getting up to european motorway speeds (120+ kph). Given...

  10. Alfa Giulia
    Has anyone here installed a tracking device on their Giulia? If so which make, who fitted it and most importantly have you encountered any problems with the car as a result? Only asking as I'm interested to know if the issue my Quadrifoglio has (as alluded to on another thread) is related to...
  11. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, Changing to alloys as the car need tyres so is perfect timing. With tracking is the only adjustment front toe nothing else? Thanks Ming
  12. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, my 156 has failed its NCT because I cannot track it at the back. When the bolts are turned they do very little although they seem to turn all the way. The NCT allows a +-18 reading on the machine which is quite a big allowance yet we cant get it any better than 22. Two different 4 wheel...
  13. South Central
    Hi All, I'm near Southampton and need to get the tracking done on my GTV. Don't really want to drive to micheldever to wait in a long queue, so was wondering if anyone has any recommendations for a local tyre place who have modern tracking equipment and won't make a mess of it? Thanks.
  14. The Technology Section
    Looking at Autoblog ,for example, and the browser changes to ad for Smart cars and in top I spot the address Crobotrack or something like that. Seems erratic. Is it cookie thing?
  15. Alfa Giulietta
    hi just wondering how they do laser alignment after lowering springs are added as I thought it throws out the computer adjustment..what do your garages do to track your lowered gs. thanks
  16. South Africa
    Hi all, I have recently acquired my first classic Alfa model. I remember seeing a post a few months ago in which someone stated that it's possible to track the history of the car back to the day it rolled from the production line given you can provide the chassis and "Tipo" numbers to AR in...
  17. General Alfa Discussion
    Shipping tracking websites (such as this mean you could in theory track your car's progress to Portbury if you knew when it was leaving; anyone been geeky enough to do it?!
  18. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Brother had his 2009 GT Cloverleaf (JTD) tracked on a Hunters rig yesterday but was told that camber can't be adjusted on the Alfa GT (Front only, I think he meant). Is this right? And do the figures on the attached pic look okay to you guys? He was charged £120 for this which seems...
  19. Alfa GTA
