  1. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    10 years ago I bought a daily driver 916 Twinspark Spider (P1) for a bit over £1,500. Spent a small fortune over the years and improved my bella but never boy racing it, replaced front wishbones several times, replaced cambelt a few times and generally kept car original and loved. Two weeks ago...
  2. Introduce Yourself
    Hello to everyone, Just picked up my 159 after years of wanting one and it has not been a disappointment. I love the way it feels to drive and the way it hugs the road. It has a few issues, nothing to serious I hope but will save the details for the appropriate forum. :byebye:
  3. Tuning & Upgrades
    As title fellas. Anything worth doing? Drilling airbox? Decatting? Etc. Any restrictors in place like reduced diameter piping in inlet path etc. Induction kit worth any gains? Anyone done a cold air feed to the filter or intercooler? Interested to hear your views. TIA Phil.
  4. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    I bought my 2003 2.4JTD 156 Veloce 15mths ago on something of a whim when I needed a temp car urgently. It's been so reliable and such a hoot to drive while using little fuel I've kept it far longer than planned. Thing is I need an estate car and struggle a bit with the boot of my 156 saloon...
  5. Alfa Giulietta

  6. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    My car has been a fussy starter for a while and the battery gave out the other day (admittedly it was on MAR for 15 mins while I was faffing around with FiatECUScan - which still won't work). It has been grumpy since so I'm considering a fresh battery since the current one has been there since...
  7. Alfa MiTo
    Hi guys, am new to the AO site, am a mito 170 owner and was wondering who has remapped theres? I would love to get mine pushing 200+ bhp if possible. Wondered where it can be done? Is it worth while? Would other upgrades be needed with this such as brakes etc Am based in Essex but would love...
  8. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi guys Have recently purchased my first ever alfa and loving it! Just wanted too see if you enthusiasts out there think my purchase was good value. Its a 159 1.9 jtdm lusso sw, black, 08 plate, had 36k miles on the clock. Extras are, blue and me, heated front seats, front parking sensors...
  9. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Was thinking of putting the rear anti roll bar from a GTA (dunno which fits - 147 or 156) onto my GT. The idea is to try to give the back a bit of extra rigidity and I have heard the GTA bars are somewhat thicker than standard. Can anyone tell me if this is a-worthwhile and b-feasible. Was...
  10. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Like most of you (I suspect), I feel that front fog lights are about as much use as a gnat's chuff, so was thinking to replace them with something a bit more substantial... my question though is this, what is it that gives them the 'flat' beam that supposedly doesn't bounce back at you in the...
  11. Tuning & Upgrades
    Seen some GTA springs and dampers for sale and anyone know if it is worthwhile changing the sportpack's to the GTA's. Cheers:)
  12. ICE & Blue&Me
    I am shopping around for a GT at the moment, as a replacement for my 156 and I have seen some nice JTD's on a 54 plate with the Connect Nav system installed. I actually prefer the look of the dash with the system fitted as opposed to the cup-holders but I realise the system is pretty outdated...
  13. Poll Room
    I'm just looking to see the overall opinion on induction.. Cheers OA
  14. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Ive been quoted £112 for a K & N Induction kit fitted for my 1.6 2001 156. Will it make any noticable difference or am I wasting good money?

    Or just lazy, sqwarking, crapping on your car (from 30,000 feet for maximum impact and spreadage), fish scoffing gits ??
