    Hello to the Alfa community! I'm looking at buying an alfa for the first time and cant make my mind up between the Brera (1750) or the 159 (1750)... Some friendly, useful advice from any one who owns or has previously owned would be much appreciated. Thank You, Upty9
  2. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Just checked my fluid levels - everything good after doing 2000 miles after my last service. However, I decided to have peek under the black foam sponge things by the bonnet hinges. It's worth checking if you have never done this, as half the leaves in the local area seem to have got...
  3. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Ive done the odd long journey and recently a track day in my 156 V6. Ive noticed the temp after a while sits between 90 and the next notch on the gauge. Ive done a search and found some confusing opionions....Is this normal? In every other car Ive owned it has never gone over 90. Its not...

    I had my Mito QV at the dealership and the mechanic said that there is a crack in the intake manifold. This according to him causes the ecu to close the throttle due to the ecu sensing excess air entering the intake. Does this make sense? As I understand it the engine has vacuum and would suck...
  5. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I'm about to hand back my leased C class Merc and need to find a cheaper form of transport. I cover 20k per year so my V6 166 probably isn't the the answer. Just spotted a high mileage GT only a few minutes from my work. Might take a look at it - what's to be wary of? Not too well informed...

  7. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    I'm learning that Alfa changed the specs of the Ti's from year to year. Some had electric memory seats as standard, some didn't etc etc.. Which period offered the best standard spec?? Cheers
  8. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi, I have been advised that buying a turismo 159 that only has cloth trim would be very hard to sell in the future (inferring that most people ask for leather and extra kit, e.g. lusso). Whats you opinions and experiences on this? Have you found turismo 159s harder to sell? What price...

    Hi folks, I'm new on here, and am here to pick your brains more or less. You see I have lost my once great love for all things "car". I have long admired Alfa's and so think now is the ideal time to take the plunge into "Alfisti" territory. I live in Derry where Alfa Romeo is not at all a...

    My car history since selling my much loved 156 GTA a year ago has shall we say been "busy". Bought a BMW 330d which I thought was a good compromise between mpg and performance to cope with my 90 mile daily commute. Great engine but just dull dull dull, got absolutely no pleasure from owning...
  12. Alfa 145 & 146
    what a nightmare.What turned out to change just the rear pads had turned into a mare....Took the pads out and by chance just turned the hub and wow what a noise. So after havng a closer look found that all the grease in the bearing had gone hard. Decided to replace the bearing. So whats the...
  13. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Soooo some old git managed to reverse into my drivers side door while trying to turn around in a close where my mate lives. he's managed to put two dents in the door and scratched the wing, for some reason he wants to pay for it out of his own pocket... I've gotten two quotes both of which...
