  2. PCP - how does mileage work?

    General Motoring Discussion
    I was having a look at new cars, as you do... :D I've noticed that PCP car prices are cheaper than "cash" since for the most part, manufacturers throw in a £x,000 deposit contribution. So, if I'm going to buy a new motor, it looks like PCP is the way to go. Just the final balloon payment...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider

  5. How do oil coolers work?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    First of all Good morning, hope you have a good day ahead! Secondly, I was reading on different oil cooling solutions - either heat exchanger where the coolant keep the oil temp in check or a proper oil cooler rad - seen on 140-150PS JTD 147s. In the latter variant, does the rad solely cool...

    I was changing the bulbs in the climate control unit 2001 156 with AC and when I re-assembled the hazards don't work and also lights don't flash when I set the alarm. I plugged the switch back in, what could have gone wrong? Cheers!
  7. How does the brown master key work and can it be changed?

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    So, when my GTV came over from Japan it only had one red key with it, but not the brown master key. And I'd like a couple of spare keys. I do have the original 'key card' and got a couple of blanks cut to that as spares, I haven't been able to try them yet though so no idea if they work or not...

Before going back to them, I'd like to check a couple of things. Before the turbo operation -which has nothing to...

    Alfa Giulia
    Hi, Does anybody know anything about who can do warranty work for a non-QV Giulia? I've tried bringing it to Alfa/Vauxhall Arnold Clark in Linwood who were extremely unhelpful and quite frankly seemingly gave up on the problem after a few hours but didn't tell me until I went to pick it up...

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    A week or so ago I started having issues with the windows on my Spider not auto dropping and not working at all, predominately on the passenger side. A charge of the battery improved things as did the end of the cold weather. I bought and fitted a new 70Ah Varta battery and all seemed fine...

    I drove the Spider for the first time in about a week yesterday. First problem; the air bag light has come on even though I haven’t moved the seats etc. Second problem was the carpet behind the passenger seat was absolutely soaking but nowhere else.
