Buying a 1.9 159 Sportwagon with great service history, 80k, very recent clutch and cambelt
but has damage to the rear offside door and would like to purchase a second hand one rather than get it sprayed as new paint never seems to match.
Anyone on this message board know of a black 159 at a...
I’ve been offered a car but not interested myself, because
- I have too many cars already
- It’s a 5 door
The owner wants £1k for it.
Red ‘sud 5 door. Originally a 1.3 (single carb I think) but now has twin carbs. No idea if engine was swapped.
- In storage since 1998

Have just completed a ground up restoration of a 1978 105 Series 2 Spider Veloce This originated in California, but suffered many years in a UK field with crops growing through what was left of the floor! After 2 years work it is near concourse condition and ready for its first real test drive...
Just had a email from Griffin Mill garages (S Wales) that they now an approved Alfa service centre.
We have had our 500's serviced there in the past and have had very good service
Still no sign of a full dealer!!
Hi all I'm Ben from south Wales and me and my father have just bought a spider as a bit of a weekend toy.
It's a '97 only done 62k miles and only had 3 owners and been garaged all its life so I feel it's a pretty nice example.
So far I've put in a new stereo, fixed the wiring to the electric...
Hi Guy's, finally purchased my very first Alfa a 2003 Phase 3 GTV silver with red leather thank you to all you guys who put very helpful buying guides on the forum. Looking forward enjoying driving her.
Hope to meet some of you at the meets next year.
Great forum, that I used a great deal before finally getting my first Alfa last week (2.4 Brera).
Absolutely love the car, makes me feel special every time I drive it, always loved the look of the Brera & think the front end is one of the best looking out there on any car!
Just been told that Lookers in Cardiff are closing at the end of the month, that means not a single dealer in Wales even along the M4 corridor, no wonder I have only seen one other Giulia in Cardiff :curse:
Waiting for reply from ARUK as I will not take my car over 40 mls to Bristol, totally...
Hi Guys, back on the forum after many years away, my Alfa GT (2006) 1.9 diesel has been a great motorway work horse for the past 2 years, but now the milage is touching 103K and the flywhhel is starting to talk to me so it has to go to a caring home where it will be looked after, hopefully i can...
My wife has recently bought her second Mito. This time she's gone for a 63 plate 0.9 Twinair Distinctive in metallic black. It had about 7k on the clock when she bought it.
Her last one was a brand new (back in 2011) 1.4 Sprint in metallic red, and I'm amazed at how much more power...
Ok got the 2.4 and got a rattle when the clutch is pressed
Can anyone recommend somebody in the South Wales / Bristol area to do work on the gearbox that has done it before not some corner backstreet garage
Also would anyone have a idea on cost for the work to be done for a clutch and...
My bf and I have just bought an Alfa GT V6 to go with our JTD, so we wanted to say hi :)
The V6 is the 5th gear press car that VBH gave a caning round the track but just lost to the RX-8 :(
The blue JTD is the daily driver.
Picked up my first Alfa two days ago! It's a 2.0 JTDM 170 Veloce with a few nice additions.
My girlfriend has owned a MiTo for four years and my Dad had a few 156s prior to that, so it's long overdue that I've joined the club.
I've popped up the full spec in the images section...
joined hear quite a few years ago when I was searching for a spider, long story but basically couldn't find a nice one in my buget. Got fed up of traveling around looking at cars that clearly were not the same car as advertised if you get my drift.
In the end bought a Mk2,TT have owned...
