  1. Unbelievable!!

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Whilst dismantling the front suspension so as to remove the sub frame to get to the faulty alternator I discovered that the left tie rod end inner joint has about 1mm play. This is the joint at the steering rack end. Alfa Romeo does not sell the inner joint separately, you have to buy the whole...
  2. Supermarket S3 parking, unbelievable.

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    When I arrived home after the last outing of the S3 before being tucked up for the winter, the wife explained that rations were low so we needed a trip to our local supermarket so we jumped in the Spider and sped off. On arrival in the supermarket car park, I parked well away from everyone else...

    Was doing some repair work after the gales and managed to drop a ladder on the back of the G :mad: Whilst being incredibly stupid it also looks like I've been incredibly lucky for whilst the light cluster is smashed it looks like the ladder bounced off and didn't touch any of the bodywork...

If I want my reversing lights and parking sensors to work I just press the button for the heated rear screen AND THE PASSENGER SIDE REVERSING LIGHT AND THE REAR PARKING SENSORS ARE WORKING ALL THE TIME! Even I had to laugh what a shambles! What Varaiva's have done...
  6. Mito rust and Alfa unbelievable response

    Alfa MiTo
    About a month ago while washing the wifes Mito (2009) I noticed the paint was bubbling around the boot badge. I took the car to my local dealership and they took photos of it and sent it of to Alfa. A week or so later I got a call from the dealer telling me that Alfa would be prepared only to...
  7. Unbelievable jeff!!!!

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello all since owning the 147 (20 months) the air con has never worked, in fact the fans have never really blown very strongly and its always been warm air. This has been really annoying in the winter freezing my arse off and in the summer sweating my arse off. I tried to get the aircon...
  8. Unbelievable freezing hour!

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Just spent the friggin coldest hour outside, but on the upside, windscreen washer pipe reconnected (after recently coming loose after fitting a new wiper motor), new crystal side repeaters fitted and a number of bulbs replaced on the speedo & rev counter. The things we won't do for our Alfas.
  9. Unbelievable VW customer service, listen up Alfa....

    General Motoring Discussion
    We are always hearing on here how difficult it seems to be to get anything out of Alfa UK, especially when there is a problem or the car is just out of warranty. Well, a good friend of the family works for Rail Track (or whatever they are called). He sub contracts to them as part of the...

  15. Quite Unbelievable Week.

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Oh what a week I've had. Went up to see the guys at red dot. My rear discs & pads are the same as the ones on the GTA. WTF.... They are totally not standard on the 156 1.8 Veloce. The ferrodo pads Ive been supplied don't fit. Thanks motorsportworld! Originally we thought the master cylinder...
  16. Unbelievable new Superbikes

    General Motoring Discussion
    I just thumbed through a bike mag and am utterly blown away by how things have moved on having not had a bike for many years.... and then it was a crappy one.... I was looking at the Ducati 1098- yours for £14k, 160 BHP, 173 kg. Nearly 1000 BHP per ton. And in road trim it smashed the lap...
