Door mirrors by GT[_11_]
Both my door mirror mounts have completely shed their 'black' now. My old Fiat Marea did this too. I'm not too bothered about it as the resulting bauxite (corroded aluminium) looks like chrome from a distance! Should I be concerned? Are the mirrors likely to fall off?!?

Just been to collect my 75 by SteveH
from the garage where I keep it, around 10 miles away. Haven't had a chance to use it since the first week of June, but once I'd disconnected the battery, it fired up pretty much instantly. Who says Alfas are unreliable? -- SteveH 'You're not a real petrolhead unless you've owned an Alfa...

JTS exhaust by GT[_11_]
Best online shop for exhausts please... I need a new back box for my 156 2002 2.0JTS. Its not the same as the TSpark exhaust system. The flexi pipe was the blowing part, so they welded a similar sized piece in and all is well, but there is only luck holding the rear silencer together at the...

75 wind deflector removal by SteveH
Does anyone have an idiots guide to this? Managed to the passenger side item whilst working on the car today. Gah! On the positive side, the car now has a decent stereo with bluetooth hands-free, iPod control and MP3 capability and the headlining no longer sags, although I need to have it fixed...

Argghh: taken roughly. by Catman
Or more accurately SWMBO was. By a bloody great LWB Transit type thing in her 145. Boot won't open or shut properly, looks to me like the rear quarter shouldn't be that shape and the spare wheel well / boot floor is definitely bent. I suppose that will get written off then. At least driver...

Odd noise by R C Nesbit
The 156 1.9 JTD had started making a very odd noise. Started yesterday, under heavy throttle, a sort of shhhshhsshshs noise, best I can describe it is like the noise of waves receding on a pebble beach. Only happens under heavy throttle, neutral or slight acceleration there is no problem. So,...

156 JTD engine temp. by R C Nesbit

Novitec Rosso downsizes with tuned Alfa Romeo MiTo by notlove
Alfa Romeo's new MiTo is hardly a performance powerhouse, with the current range-topping model in the lineup boasting a diminutive 1.4L turbo engine until the performance-focused GTA arrives. Thankfully, German tuner Novitec Rosso is remedying the situation with a number of upgrades for the stylish...

I Don't Believe It! by Zathras
Car failed to start yesterday afternoon. First proper fail to proceed in 8 years. Not too shabby. However, I suspect the immobiliser is playing up. It cranked fine (for as long as I could be bothered holding the key!) and I could hear the fuel lift pump so I'm suspecting the immobiliser is playing...
