    How much y'all think the insurance gna price it? Considering I'm getting the quote from the dealership. However I don't know how pricy those Italian parts are? Or aren't they??
  2. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, First time poster here. Just had an interesting experience driving home in my 2004 Alfa GT 1.9 diesel. Doing around 70 on a dual carriageway, window was down and I could smell what can only be described as a smoggy/burning smell. Another half a mile down the road and there is a fair...

    Hi all, You'd probably have seen any of my post trying to fix the car :D. I came to a balance where I was happy with the car, and I didn't care the power loss on low revs<1500 or 4000+ rpm. It was starting to be a nice experience...but today I made a mistake while driving... I made a curve from...

    I was messing around on the netbook the other day when my daughter distracted me. The netbook fell off of my lap and landed on the floor quite heavily. It was on at the time, and immediately after everything had frozen up, although the display remained on. Now when I switch it on there is a...

  6. Alfa MiTo
    Went to pick up my wife's new 6 week old MiTo from the dealer service dept and the paint work is now like a 3 year old un cared for car, swirl marks spider web marks all over the car :cry: I ended up leaving it there until Monday - what can I do?
  7. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Amazing assumptions - thought I was taking off the selespeed pump - got it off, opened it up to get at the bushes - smelled the fluid and thought, "Hmmmmm, this smells like brake fluid"...and it was. Man do I feel foolish. Put it back together and obviously there's air in the system. Pedal goes...
  8. South Africa
    I was at the Alfa Clinic this morning getting an 'in-between services' oil and filters change for the JTDm. While i waited for them to do the work I had a quick mooch around the workshop. There were a good few 147's and 156's that were proper wrecks:cry: Why do people treat them so badly??? Is...

  10. Alfa 155
    When i had finished removing some remains of a towbar, i thought id check my braking regulator, or brake bias valve thing, after reading alot about it seizing up, bad spring, etc. So i made a stick with a hook, and reached in, to pull in it.. the spring broke apart on my first little pull...
  11. West Midlands
    Last Wednesday someone opened their car door on mine leaving a great big dent and an angry Alfa owner. The person who hit the door was kind enough to offer to get it repaired and forked out a £200 pound bill to his 'friend'. This friend works in an MOT station that also does resprays, the car...

    Outside work today next door at David Hales Salvage they had this bad boy rolling in. Not a great picture at all but from the looks of it it's shunted some poor bazzer and wrecked the bumper, grill, and possibly bits and bobs in the engine bay. Whatever the case it's been written off as David...

  14. Introduce Yourself
    Hello, I have had my '83 Spider for 9 years now. I was recently rear ended by an uninsured motorist. My insurance company insists on totalling my car(OH state law supposedly). I am seeking advice and have a few questions. I definitely want to have a Spider going forward, I am just not sure...
  15. Alfa 33, Sud & Sprint
    Well - I had it parked in a private car park this afternoon and some git backed into the back of it and then drove off. I am gutted as its the one classic I truly cherish above all the rest. I am just too ****ed off to take any pics right now but there is pretty hefty damage to the rear panel...

    Here is a pic of the devastation I done myself :rant: to mt GT when reversing into a gate last week. I knew I had cleared the gate but did not see an amazingly long latch sticking out. I am so mad with myself over it. :rolleyes:
