    General Alfa Discussion
    IM off to Milan first week of 2020, and wondered if the Museum was definitely worth taking the trip north for? Does anyone know if they are open at that time of year? Thanks

  3. Off on a round trip

    General Alfa Discussion
    Just sending waves to all the Alfas I may see over the next week on my trip round England and Scotland. So if you see a red Giulietta between Basingstoke and Tadcaster today give me a wave. Then I'll be in and around Stirling/Bridge of Allan Monday-Thursday. Friday I'm off to Worcester. Then...

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Morning all, for the latest episode of The Alfa Nut, I couldn’t resist dropping the roof on the Spider one last time before the weather changes and heading off on a road trip! Hope you can smell the sea air while you watch! Cheers Chris
  5. Mileage and trip info flashing, what's the fix please?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I have recently acquired a '06 1.9 16v 147 TI and just recently the mileage and trip figures flash intermittently and I would like to stop it. I've already owned a 2 litre TS and a 2.4 156 and my wife had a 147 16v 1.9 and I seem to remember this happening to one of them, which was an easy fix...

  7. European road trip

    General Motoring Discussion
    Sorry if this is the wrong thread, or if this has been posted before, but I'm trying to come up with a week long driving tour of the best European roads - and ideally stopping off at any interesting car related places (musuems, factories etc). This would be my first driving trip through Italy...
  8. TRIP Button not working

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi Everyone, I have a 2012, 159 TBi Ti, which I got about 3 weeks ago. Love the car, but when I filled up the tank (full) for the first time today, my trip button doesn't respond/work anymore! Coincidence - or do I wait for the fuel to drop a bit in the tank? Blue&Me all works fine, but I can't...

    South East
    Hello South-Easterners, We host a number of Italian car breakfast meets in Alton, north Hampshire, 4 times a year, and do get a reasonable number of attendees from the South-East, so I thought I might post it here too in case it is of interest. Our next meet will be on Saturday the 6th October...

    Motoring Images
    The wife and I have just got back from an epic trip down to the south of France in my 916 Spider (Sid). Other than a few minor issues the car performed perfectly. It was a pleasure to drive throughout (particularly on Route Napoleon) and even turned a few heads in Monaco! We saw plently of...
  14. 166 Trip button not responding

    Alfa 164 & 166
    Howdie all, my 166 has now done over 211k miles, and I am hoping to keep it running for another 10 years :) As the time passes, new problems appear - now my trip computer has stopped working. Meaning that I cannot get it on screen anymore pressing the Trip button. The Clima button is also not...
  15. Just done a road trip

    General Alfa Discussion
    Just done 1210 miles on a road trip around northern europe. My 2.4 returned 44.8mpg!!! and received many admiring glances/comments. We had a wonderful time driving round until I was 30 miles from home; on the M6 on a merge of carriageways, my engine cut out with a loss of oil pressure. I...
  16. Trip to Italy

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    You may have read elsewhere that I recently returned from a trip to Italy, no not in the S2. Whilst I would love to drive my (LHD) S2 around Italy, the comfort of driving there in a (new) Giulia cannot be ignored. We entered Italy via the Grand St Bernard pass which had only been opened a couple...

  18. Trip B reset

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi all, I recently replaced the coil pack in my car and did an ecu reset. I’ve noticed that the trip computer for Trip B no longer is auto resetting every time I start a new journey. I don’t want to have to manually do this. Can anybody provide some advice on how to get this back to automatic...
  19. 156 and the trip computer accuracy!

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    There are many posts on this, but I really cannot believe how inaccurate the trip computer is! I own a 156 1.9 16v JTD, and I'm getting over 500 miles to a full tank of diesel. Acceptable or not? I'm not particularly sure, I think I worked the fuel consumption out to be around 41mpg or...

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
