  2. Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hello All, Looking for some experiences with uprated antirollbars for my 2.4 159 sportwagon. My current thought is to get stiffer ARBs front and back, but increase stiffness at the back more than at the front to make turn in a little sharper. (I'm not after race car levels of flatness, just...

  7. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi guys, well my 156jtdm sport has been sat collecting dust for the last six month since having issues after changing the radiator and thermostat. It's third down the pecking order so realistically it's got to go. Now listed on ebay...

    Well, although I'm not picking it up for a few days, I've just taken the plunge and bought a black Brera 2.2, red leather, 57k. So...as a current owner of a 1.2 beast of a Corsa, I'm guessing this is gonna be a little..surreal..(!) Anyway, this place seems great, so I just wanted to say 'hey'...

  10. Alfa Giulietta
    I'm in need of changing my brake pads in the next 6months and I was tempted to replace my discs at the same time. I've been thinking about just replacing the whole brake system and replacing them with larger discs and calipers. However I cannot find such a kit for the 1.4 MA only the 1.75 QV...

    Does anyone have any data or failing that an opinion on how much an upgraded inter cooler would lower intake temperatures compared to water meth injection with a standard intercooler? The upgraded intercooler is the Autolusso one and I am trying to ascertain what the max sustainable performance...
  13. Introduce Yourself
    Hi all I have just moved on to a 159 2.2 TI JTS after 8 years joyous driving a couple of 156 2.0 JTS's. Absolutely love it but after driving it (almost non-stop) for two days there are a couple of niggles. I wasn't provided with a wallet with the user manuals so I'm struggling to use the sound...
  14. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    It's been a week since I picked up my 147. I like it and it is a competent daily driver for me. One thing that has annoyed me is that it smells like the previous owner has spilt some milk or something in the car and has failed to clean it up properly. I hired a carpet shampooer and cleaned...

  17. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello all. I have read about how fitting a better differential to my 3.2 V6 Alfa GT will improve its handling. I suffer from wheel spin and the traction control light constantly. Will a new differential stop this?If so, can someone tell me where is best to get it done. What should I ask for...

    Just upgraded my 156 2.4 JTD to a 159 2.4 JTDM Q-tronic Lusso, only had it 2 days but I am very pleased with it, drive is smoother and is much more responsive than my 156 the extra hp is very noticeable. The 1st job I plan to do is take out the standard radio and replace it with a sat nav unit...
