  1. Alfa MiTo
    I’ve had a quotation from a garage for around £300 for some coil springs on my Alfa due to them being ‘special’ and being a dynamic type spring due to my multiple driving modes in my car. They also stated that they have to order in a pair, there fore I have to pay for both, just posting to get...

    Anyone can help what the obvious fault might be. I have connected up a hand held 'Foxwell' diagnostic device for a full scan and on every occasion when it comes to scan the Air Bag circuit it freezes, plus I did try another 'Foxwell' and the same thing happened.( scan circuit No. 53 ) and it...
  8. General Alfa Discussion
    Other than aesthetics, are there any handling or performance differences? Having owned two 156s since 2007 I feel I should know the answer... My first 156, although didn't have the bodykit, came up, according to my insurance company, as a Veloce. Now my second car, which had the smart sills...

  10. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I have a 156 Turismo that has the date on the info center. However, when I look in the manual to see how to set it it says to use the info and +- buttons but these are just blanking plates on my console. How the hell do I do it? It's driving me mad.
  11. Alfa MiTo
    Hi, I have a Mito Turismo Sport, which is 95bhp 1.4 16v NON TURBO engine. I have the suspension top mount noise problem and one of the springs has broken so I'm thinking of buying lowering springs to lower the car 30mm, then possibly put bigger wheels on, maybe even the 18" turbine alloys...

    Hi Everybody, I've inherited a black alfa 1.6 turismo from my uncle who passed away a couple of months back. The car was one of his loves and he had it alfa serviced and maintained all these years. In the last year due to his failing health he accidentally scrapped the drivers rear quarter panel...
