  1. I guess I am starting to understand the Alfa experience.

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    My clutch just fell to the floor when I tried to change gear. I want to give up but this bloody car has me hooked when she's running. Thank you in advance. Sent from my SGP311 using Tapatalk
  2. Just bought my first Alfa and I need to understand it

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hello you all, I'm a big fan of cars, just bought my first Alfa, the "new" Giulietta 2.0 jtdm2 150hp 2017. As soon as I got it, my first concern was to know the engine and it's limitations, same goes for the chassis and 6 months later I think I got it. I must confess I love the car and hate the...

  4. I understand now and some thoughts on the GTV

    South Africa
    Why the Busso V6 is so highly thought of. After these last two days I reckon anyone with an ounce of petrol in their veins needs to drive an Alfa powered by a Busso motor. When I bought the GTV I read countless articles about this engine and its character and if anything my expectations have...

  6. How do we understand the MOT?

    General Motoring Discussion
    Prior to taking my transit for it's MOT, I checked it over. I had to strip out the number plate lights and clean all the terminals to get em working. I put smoke treatment in the tank and ragged it up and down the A14 to get emissions down. I got underneath and was expecting to get failed on (As...

  17. Electrickery - I Don't Understand!!!

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Odd one this. The high-mounted brake light on the spoiler has stopped working. I've checked everything. I've stripped down the lamp itself and checked all the bulbs - they are all OK and the lamp unit gives a total resistance of around 1.5 ohms. I've checked the voltage to the lamp - a steady...
