  2. I'm getting vibrations whenever I crank up my rubbish stereo!

    ICE & Blue&Me
    Hi guys, I've complained a few times about how bad the stereo is in my Brera S but I've noticed, whenever I turn the stereo up louder than normal talking level, I get an annoying vibration from both doors. It's actually so bad that I have had to turn the bass down to 0 and keep it relatively...
  3. Steering Wheel Vibrations

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello All, Been doing some reading on this and first thoughts are that I may have a wheel balancing issue.

Really nice car; only 31,000 kms; full service history; well taken care of (e.g.cam belt was replaced last year at 26,000 kms). No major repairs, tough several times the...
