Good to hear a positive report on the Giulietta and interesting to read what you say on the 170bhp version v the 240bhp. smile
Any pics with the coupe?

Try Footman James, I recently switched my SpiderEuropa to "off the road" cover after many years of being insured normally (despite being "off the road") crazy (I figured that I might get it going again soon...but never did frown )

Excellent. I’ll chase them for an answer to see if (and how many) we would need.

I have a Giulietta 1750 TB (240bhp), which replaced a Giulietta 1.4 MultiAir (170bhp). Before that a Mito 1.4 MultiAir (135bhp). So 9 consecutive years of Alfas, and all three cars have been fine - the sole problem has been with the current one, which developed a water leak that needed a replacement rad under warranty. Actually the best engine of all was the 170bhp, which made for a really nicely balanced car. The 240bhp motor has too much power for the chassis & torque steers, plus the auto box (no longer a manual option) is a bit tiresome.

Since having problems with the alarm on my coupe, I had the meta alarm box removed and therefore lost the central locking. Been using the key to lock and unlock for years!!
After stumbling on a post on here about the meta alarm I contacted Abacus alarms who do a updated plug in replacement but it’s not cheap. Thinking I didn’t realky want all the hassle of the alarm keep going off all the time like before I, I just wanted the central locking!!!
Anyway a few key posts on here (what a great forum) it showed that if you have had a meta alarm fitted and can find the blue connector (behind the fuse box/steering wheel) where the meta alarm box loom plugs in then restoring central locking is a doddle.
So today my £8 central locking ebay module turned up. I spliced new wires into the old meta loom (6 wires needed) and bingo central locking is back....luxury...blip blip...
Ok it’s not very sophisticated, it just locks and unlocks but does have a boot pop option I might look into installing .
Anyway, just off to lock and unlock the car from the front door because I can!! laugh

Nigel, the car is in Lichfield and I need to get it to Pauls,

Had a look through How To's but cannot find info on how to remove the key barrel, is this an easy process ?

Also Nigel, my cars heavily modded, will my mapped chip just plug directly into the new ECU ?


Removing the ignition barrel is only easy if you have a key - once you're into the car, you will need to remove all the steering column plastics and some of the electrics (stalk controls etc) and then remove the whole ignition switch assembly from the column - not a five minute job...

Yes - plugging your mapped chip into a new ECU should work fine

Insurance
7 hours ago
The safe place where my Sorned coupe is stored is closing on Saturday. It has not been insured whilst there due to the highly unlikely event of a theft or accident there.

I will be moving it down a steep slope, on to my transporter and leaving it on my drive for 2 months before I can store it again in my parents garage, therefore I need to get some cover.

Can anyone recommend an insurance company/broker for a car laid up on a transporter kept on a private locked drive that will be competitive?

Many thanks.

Mr T.

Top Gear is really rather crappy these days, apart from the cars. Blanc the Yank is off after this series. No surprises there, I'm not going into specifics. There was a time, there was a time. driving

I had a 147 GTA after my coupe. Parted ways with that about 18 months ago after 7 years.

Tyres I think, Neil.

I find I have to force myself to watch TG now. I used to look forward to viewing it. The Grand Tour is pants too. Maybe I’m just getting old?

Thanks Freddie. I went last year too and had a great time. I don’t know whether, if there were enough of us, we could get them to give us an area. I’ve tried emailing to ask but waiting for a response.

Sounds like you haven't fitted the release bearing properly.

Fit the bearing to the release arm. Refit gearbox and tap the release arm to engage the bearing into the cover plate. Remember that this is a pull type clutch

The way I'm reading this is there's limited space to join the venue, 40-45 cars which will be open to registration so the first ones to confirm and pay get to park are shine. My question is if we don't get on the list can we still join the weekends activities, hotels etc but park else where.

Can I get more info on this? I just fitted a kevlar clutch but my flywheel was modified, the clutch does not disengage fully, and rattles, am about to strip gearbox back out today. Wondering if there is a mismatch as well as the flywheel issue (I have a spare flywheel). Have a post and video up on fb pages.

Thanks for the update and web links Joe
So 40 "seats" for foreign visitors.
Is this "cars" or "people" do you think?
Looks fun though :-)
