The car’s software was last updated by a dealer in early 2018. Dealers don’t...
Our, new to us, 2016 Giulietta 1.6 jtdm2 has 96,000km (60,000 miles) on it. I've been looking into when we'll need to change the timing belt and there seems to be different specified mileages for the 2011 Giulietta as opposed to the 2014 (and above) version.
The 2011 version is meant to...
Hello everyone, long time reader - first time poster. I have a 2005 1.9 JTD 8 valves, a wonderful car to drive to which I have lost the key.
I searched the forum and saw one of the solutions to this is to replace the ECU, body computer and key reader.
The ECU in my car is 0281011488. The one I...
Somebody selling a Brera on alfas for sale on Facebook has posted this ..
"Hi Jon - you're thinking of the 'Brera S Prodrive' which has the features you list. The standard 'Brera S' doesn't have those features. Andy at Love Alfa has a Brera S Prodrive due in within the next 24 hours".

Bit of background - I'm 21 and have a budget of 5k (including insurance). I've looked at tons of different cars and I'm convinced that the Alfa Romeo 147 is the car for me.
To keep insurance low, I'm keen to get a 1.6L. If someone could summarise the different versions of the 147 1.6L...
I am looking at maybe swopping my super reliable 2.0 T.Spark 147 for a diesel 147 or GT.
The pre-2005 147s had the JTD 8 valve motor, 85kw.
The 2005 Progression had the JTDm 8 valve, 88kw.
The 2005+ Distinctive and GT had the JTDm 16 valve, 110kw.
Which of these are the most fuel efficient...
Does anyone know if the Radio/CD on the Alfa 147 received any upgrades post face-lift or are there any differences between pre and post facelift models?
I know the colour is different on the GTA version and I'm not looking at that model!
thanks.....my rear sounds are pathetic, I'm sure...

The body on my Junior is fibreglass and ive got a problem with the doors as the windows are glass which means they are really too heavy. Winding the window up and down is tough and the inner of the doors bow under strain, plus when they're up they dont sit in the right position but sag.
Hello everyone, I have searched the forum, but could not find anything concrete in order to perform the operation.
This is my situation: connect NIT + SW 4.07 I want to upgrade to Version 5.00 or higher.

I'm in the process of changing the front shocks of my 1998 Alfaromeo GTV 2.0T CF2. I'm finding it a bit difficult to find them for my version of GTV. I mostly find either for the CF1 or for the CF2.
What is the difference between versions of GTV in the shock?
For example Monroe I cannot...

I have a -97 GTV 2.0TS ph1 with the 2.10.4 ECU, h/w 0261204484
The original chip has s/w version 1037357769. I've been offered a tuning chip for the same ECU but with s/w 1037358801.
Is it just a software update, and is backwards compatible, or is the later version made for some
I've done a bit of a search, as am about to pick up a 159, but not much pertinent comes up, I have two relatively simple questions:
What is the difference between generation 1 & 2 Blue & Me? Is there greater Functionality?
Bearing in mind mine is a 58 plate, did the updates include...
HEALTH WARNING! This thread is NOT, nor is it meant to become a slug-fest about which version is "best" - quite the opposite! :)
It struck me over the weekend that I have now driven 3 of the petrol engined versions of the G, even if miles covered have been quite low:

Long time no post but im thinking of returning to the Alfa fold and fancying a diesel facelifted 147 or a GT.
Are all GT's 150 bhp ?
With the diesel 147's, one thing confusing me (which isnt difficult) are the different power output versions.
