  1. Alfa Giulia
    Hi all Picked up a 2017 speciale yesterday. 2.2 180 hp Black Red leather Performance pack. Drove it back from the UK to Ireland, it really is a fantastic car. I had to get the dealer to change one of the wheel arch liners while I waited as it was cracked (seems common ) On the drive...
  2. Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Evening chaps, haven't been on here for a good while but the car's failed its MOT and I may need some advice for best repair. So the fails.... Front Exhaust emissions likely to be affected by an exhaust leak flexi blowing (8.2.1.1 (b)) Exhaust carbon monoxide content after 2nd fast idle...
  3. 4C & 4C Spider
    Unless I'm going nuts a 4c was charging around goodwood race track yesterday . It was red with a fitted rear spoiler. Anyone seen it.
  4. Alfa Giulia
    Following on from my Alfa Assist visit the other week, my car went into my nearest dealership 35 miles away. Alarm sensitivity was adjusted, but no software updates installed, they reckon I am running the latest version. While waiting I saw this and would possibly bought it if hadn't done my...
  5. Alfa Giulietta
    Hello all, I am driving a 2011 Giulietta that I bought very recently. It is just for travelling around, no business. So, I don't particularly need a car, just for pleasure. Since I have no money left from buying the damn car for winter tires, I decided to not use the car in winter. However, the...
  6. Introduce Yourself
    Hi! So, i bought my first Alfa yesterday... So i thought i'd join you all here! I got an Alfa Romeo Giulietta from 2011, and it drives well. Having a few teething problems but we'll get them sorted! Cheers!
  7. General Motoring Discussion
    I was out on country lanes in the wife's EOS which has the DSG gearbox. I was behind a slower car and coming up to a place where it's possible to pass safely if you time it right. I find the DSG to be ponderous on the kickdown, too ponderous for this overtaking opportunity, so I stuck it in...
  8. General Alfa Discussion
    A really outstanding example which I had a really good look around. Whoever owns it is certainly keeping it looking pristine, anyone here? :):
  9. South Africa
    I was driving along yesterday in the blue GTV, doing about 110 in 6th(2500rpm) when I saw the red light fuel injection failure light come up in the dash. I then pushed the clutch in to give it a little rev to see if it was in limp mode but it wasn't and as I revved it the red light went off...
  10. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Afternoon all, So, after just two weeks out of the garage, my Spider is testing me once again. It started yesterday no problem but when I went to go out in it today, it wouldn't start. The dials on the dash light up as usual with the first turn of the key but I noticed that they exhibit some...
  11. 4C & 4C Spider
    Saw my first 4c yesterday, travelling on M5 southbound, between junc 11 & 12 during average speed cameras around 17:30. Was going in opposite direction so only brief glimpse. Thought it was a F50 or so at first from a distance. Looked stunning. What a great way to end the week . . . :thumbs:
  12. Alfa Giulietta
    First time Alfa owner today. Picked up a 11 plate Veloce 170 diesel in cosmos blue today, and first impressions are very very positive. I always look for the negative reviews, so I can keep an eye/listen out for them, before purchasing. My main concerns we're build quality/rattling and the...
  13. Republic of Ireland
    FYI car was reporting 5.6 l/100km for yesterday's trip (that's about 50 mpg). That's better than I expected but I'm after plugging up the holes in the air system, replacing MAF and giving it a service. I'd be interested to know if the injector cleaner you're running with improves your figures.
  14. South Africa
    From Topgear.co.za The price is R870*000. Yes, it could have been worse, a harsh reminder of South Africa’s soft-currency status in 2014, but at least it’s a six-figure number, not seven. That price, though, is of little consequence. All of Alfa Romeo’s 4Cs allocated for South African...
  15. South Scotland
    Folks, firstly good to meet you all yesterday at the West Coast Rally at "Eggy" park so thanks for the day! Secondly, there was chat at some point about tyres, I couldn't and didn't pick it up right but what tyres would you suggest/recommend for my G? I am needing 2 new ones and would like the...
  16. The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Was it anybody on the forum? It was inbound on the M32.
  17. South Africa
    2004 Alfa Romeo Spider 3.2 V6 C/P | Boksburg | Gumtree South Africa | 113512542 Went to view yesterday in Boksburg. Supposedly one Italian enthusiast owner from new with a full service history at an Alfa dealer. Didn't look bad from 10 metres away, paintwork was okay with no major dents or...
  18. General Motoring Discussion
    The owner of the Aston Martin/Bertone Rapide Jet 2+2 is a customer of ours. As promised he came to see us yesterday, with the car! (see link). It is absolutely stunning and Barry is so enthusiastic about it, like a kid with a new toy, he wanted to show us all the gadgets and gizmos. The book he...
  19. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi guys, I bought a new toy yesterday :P Did 110 miles from Nottingham in her on the way back and she never missed a beat. Baby 1.6 with over 102k on her, paid £900 with tax & MOT etc. Only two things I've spotted other than the usual scratches etc. Needs a new shocker on the passenger...
  20. The Technology Section
    On O2. Mine is a 64gb version, Clare's a 32gb. Got two literally mint (flip case from new) 4s 32gb phones to get shot off (white & black). Never sold on eBay so where to go for top money:confused: Thanks,
