    Cheap GranCabrio

    The MX5 didn't have heated seats and the roof was only up on the rain! coat on, heaters on max, roof down and fresh snow on the ground, or a cold, crisp, clear winters night - everyday made into a special occasion!!!

    Business Credit Ratings

    Same here, in my student days I have had quite a checkered past with credit - all better now, and I was classed as less risk than my wife who had no credit or debt... You need managed debt to be classed as a low credit risk! Its all crazy! so finance something, or as said grab a fuel/credit...

    Its Sunny, May as well run up the QP

    haha! i did feel a little self conscious interrupting a peaceful spring morning! It made more noise after it was warm and I had turned the camera off!! I thought that the white beast looked as though it hadn't moved for a while. A good clean is on the cards for me too - once the novelty of his...

    Its Sunny, May as well run up the QP

    SORN-ing the car for the cold, salty, slippery season seems to have backfired, the weather has been so mild over here! So im working from home this morning and being distracted by the sun glinting from the QP - its such a pretty car, I cant drive it, but I can check that it still works! open...

    Alfa 33 Rebuild

    Crikey Dicky, Im a pretty tolerant sort of fellow, but I take my hat off to you... to be that gracious and grant any amount of sympathy to that chap is an act of extreme humanity. Hopefully Karma pays you a visit and your luck turns around.

    What's making that knocking noise?

    Much like Oliver, could it just be wheel slip/diff locking up My Alfa used to do this, from the front only on full lock (low speed obviously!) - wrong driven wheels, but are you sure its coming through the front? anyway was really bad on one particular brand of tyre - to the extent that I...

    "Alfieri?" news. Production confirmed

    I like the sound of all that! full electric would make a nice toy, whist GT duties managed with electric and ICE working together. ohh... just saw that they will be using Ferrari powertrains for the hybrid/electric cars... that will be interesting, there is less mechanical differentiation...

    VDC system failure

    2007 Alfa GT Q2 Had the car sideways the other night and the above message came up on the central display - along with the ASR and TC warning lights up on the dash... slowed down and tried the brakes - ABS still worked. Stopped the car, engine off then back on - lights all off (as I had hoped)...
