  1. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Yesterday I went to a programmer to remap the Brera 2.2. The plug was connected to the car but as the ECU was protected by the manufacturer, we couldn't enter in car's ECU. After several unsuccessful attempts, we had no other options but to upload a chart as we couldn't make a custom program...
  2. Alfa 145 & 146
    So I got a set of nice ti wheels which I filled with 30 psi all round. Took them to a tyre garage to get balanced and was told they require 34 psi on a tyre size 195-55-15 v85. Read a few threads and some are running thiers on 39psi. Whats the correct psi?:confused:
  3. Alfa GTA
    I have had the FSD's on my car for almost 3 years now, they have done 40k since i installed them in the car with the original dampers. They used to feel like they improved the damping but my feeling lately is that they have deteriorated and the car feels like how it felt with the original...

    Which has suggested the Giulietta is "one to avoid", but some question their independence.Their recent power supplier price campaign may be a clue m.guardian.co.uk
  5. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Here is my dilemma The clutch has just gone on my 53 plate 147 jtd 16v. It’s done 111000 so not bad I suppose! But I am pretty sure the DMF is gone too from symptoms I have read about, will know for sure when work begins. I will of course fit a new clutch but do I fit a brand spanking new DMF...

  7. Car Detailing
    I purchased the foam lance for the Karcher and tried it today for the first time, and I must say I'm very impressed by it. It goes on nice and thick, and after leaving it for a few minutes, switched to the normal lance and blast it off leaving the car nice and clean, as I wash my car on a...
  8. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    I'm very close to purchasing a 3.2 Brera Q4. Sat in one the other day and felt as special as it looked. Read a few reviews regarding the 3.2 which seem to repeat the same line. "Too heavy, too thirsty". I should preface things by saying I don't need to have blistering speed. Probably a good...

  11. North East
    Got an update regarding my visit to the solicitor this afternoon. Basically they think I and those of us concerned have a very good case and very strong grounds for entering a plea of 'not guilty' and contesting the intended prosecution. This is based on the fact that there are so many...

  13. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello All, I've done some calculations after using Optimax in my 1.8 T.Spark Veloce after switching from Supermarket petrol :tut: and have found Optimax to be worth the extra money. Pretty much all my driving is urban, going to and from work down a 30mph road, stopping and starting etc. and I...

    Do you like the Alfa GT? :confused: :)
  15. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Have noticed that WhatCar magazine have been down grading Alfa's over the last few months. Here is what they say.. 147.. Looks the business but in terms of quality and dynamics is off the pace. 3 out of 5. 156.. Full of Italian charm and reasonable value but short on space and driver appeal...
