    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi there. I just thought i'd better warn anybody off if they're thinking of buying this car. It's a Cat D write off. I know because i remember this car when it was for sale just up the road from me. It was advertised on Auto trader originally. The Red roof is the giveaway. The car was...

  3. Repairable or Write-Off - Forum Thoughts?

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Good Morning All, As I was returning home last night I was hit on the near-side rear by another driver. I had just turned the car left off the road and onto the dropped curb to my driveway and there was an almighty bang. My wife hit her head and we were generally shaken up... Anyway...
  4. My 156 Ti is a Cat C write Off - What do i do?

    General Alfa Discussion
    Hello all, I was wondering if anyone could offer me some advice. Last week a distracted Merc driver drove his car into the back of my beloved 156 JTS Ti. As, on paper it's not worth much money, the insurance company have offered me: £1700 or the car back and £1250. Problem is that I paid...
  5. Mito write-off? :(

    Alfa MiTo
    So, on the M61 in the dark and sleet, some stupid b*tch decides to spin her BMW in front of me at 80+ MPH - I have to brake heavily to avoid her and the ****** traveling too closely slams into the back of us (and then hits other cars) :mad: My guess (I'm no bodywork man) is that this will be...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Here's a relatively new Brera S V6 3.2 that has rolled on the off-side. ALFA ROMEO BRERA S V6 JTS Cat D Salvage Auction I wonder if it was AWD or the Q2 version Prodrive did. Possibly understeer could have been a factor - but with the Prodrive setup I'm surprised at this. Interesting also...
  7. Lynbrook Classic Insurance

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I came across this insurance company offering what looks like a good deal for vehicles 10 years old or older. I checked with them & any 2001 vehicle is now eligible not restricted to 10 years from registration date, which is good. I especially like their right to buy back a write off & they...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hia Guys, Have posted here on and off for several years now, mostly like others asking for help and tech stuff. Have had my Alfa for quite a few years now and was going to post when it got to 150K miles, it was at 149,700, so only had a bit to go. In all the years I have had it, its never...

  10. Silver GTV v6 £3,495 on autotrader is a write-off

    General Alfa Discussion
    Thought I'd do you guys a favour in case any one thought about buying. Save yourself the HPI costs. I just rang the guy to confirm mileage, as 16,000 miles is low for a 7yr old car. He says mileage is 15,xxx, but there's no service history. I asked if there was any accident damage history and...
  11. Keeping Insurance write-off

    General Alfa Discussion
    Having heard some petrol heads lamenting the loss of a much loved car once written off, where the insurers just sold the car to salvage without consulting with the owner, I now have had it confirmed in writing by the insurance broker that I will retain owership of the vehicle at all times and...

  13. Alfa Write-off

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Having previously written-off my well-loved Spider, I now no longer trust the front-wheel drive in my replacement (it went straight on instead of turning). Does anybody know of an advanced drivers' course (or similar) which would restore my confidence? UK South East.
