  1. 1.8ts GT hits a wall at 5k revs

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I have had this issue for a few months now, but don't encounter it often as I am usually sitting in traffic. In 2nd gear the car basically stops accelerating at just under 5k revs. In third gear it happens at just over 5k revs. Its not accompanied by a mcsf. If i keep the foot down it will...
  2. Tyre wall bulge and slight cracking

    General Motoring Discussion
    My Dunlop Sport Maxx TT 225 40 18 92W with only 9.3K miles on it has developed a bulge and a small crack in the side wall. I noticed this during its Sunday afternoon wash. I can't remember running over anything large or dropping down a pothole. There's no damage to the alloy in the vicinity...
  3. I scraped my baby girl's wing mirror against a wall ?

    Alfa Giulietta
    After making a hasty decision to squeeze past an oncoming neighbour's car while exiting the apartment block parking lot, and paid for it. The scratch is about 1 inch in diameter. I feel like she is going to bleed to death and needs a plaster What are my options?
  4. Almost a cool wall post - the (second) coolest sports estate

    Poll Room
    It's a three way poll so sort-of cool wall-ish, but not quite. I love the styling of the 156sw since it comes from a long line of sporting estates, but which one of it's possible inspirations is the coolest? 1964 Reliant 'Triplex' Scimitar - probably the first sports estate. Originally done as...

    General Motoring Discussion
    When I was a kid, being a child of the 80s, my Dream Car was the Lamborghini Countach. Had a poster of one in White - Side profile against a black backdrop. It may as well have been from another planet, so over the top/exotic. What was yours?

  11. reversed into a wall, re-spray bumper or buy 2nd hand?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    reversed into a wall this morning like a plank, there doesn't look to be any physical damage but the paintwork is beyond repair. I've got parking sensors (but couldn't hear them over my music :)) so need one with the holes. What do you think would be better/cheaper, 2nd hand unit or a respray...

  13. Peed Off. I just reversed into a wall . . .

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    And I have reverse sensors too. :rant: Don't ask, cos I don't know why other than plain stupidity. It was in a multi-storey car park at the Lowry Centre in Manchester. I wish the wall had been made out of bloody matchsticks . . . Anyway, it was only gently, but because it was on a corner I...

    Alfa Giulietta
    Bo**ocks While parking in Leamington with the family outside Pizza Hut I swung into a parking spot. While reading the parking allowance sign and listening to a 3 year old and a 5 year old fight over a conker I did not notice a 1 foot brick wall at the front of the parking spot...AND BANG ...

  19. Hard or soft wall tyres

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi all my 18" rear wheels are in for a reburb, so I want to get 2 new tyres, currently I have 235/40/18 Falkens Ziex 912's. My spider is lowered on Eibach's, the ride is quiet hard, but not to bad only over the dreaded potholes. Faulkens has softer tyres walls, so would the ride be improved by...
