  1. Circoli thermostat - junk (I warned you)

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Here are better pictures of the Circoli thermostat that has burst after 36 hours on my son's car. It looks like he has avoided any further damage and head gasket seems as if it is sound. After fitting a new thermostat (not a Circoli this time) I have left the car running on the drive for an...

No warning was provided that a relay by pass should be fitted - I actually know now that it protects...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi all, In my quest to find the ultimate 159 (within my budget) I have unearthed a potential dodgy 159 on Gumtr**. Went to view it recently, and although it was a CAT C that didn't worry me (as this was disclosed in the ad) what did bother me, was that the current owner has had it only one...

    South Africa
    So we take our babies for a nice shampoo and vacuum of course. Now be warned our cars have a slot where I tend to keep my petrol card by the handbrake.

    He may not be an Alfa but I hope your all welcome him with open arms. I'm over the moon with him, really impressed. He looks the nuts on the outside and on the inside. The garage washed the car pretty badly and left a few stickers on but this I can live with. Hes a (mouthful) Punto Sporting Evo...

    Last week (even yesterday), while I was in sunny Miami, I saw four of these monsters on the road. I must say that they look really nice IRL, it even surprised me, they even look a little solemn and all. I would like to test drive one for a couple of days, hehe. :D
