    Alfa 3.0 Spider

    As some of you may have noticed, I mentioned I would be selling my V6 3.0 Spider. It's a Special Spider, one of the three Alfa pre release press cars, initially registered to them, and featured in CAR magazine, which I have a copy. Registered Dec 2000, but others didn't go on sale until April...

    Brera Spider Genuine Alfa Cover

    If anyone has been looking for a Genuine indoor Alfa cover for either a Brera or a Spider, the same cover does both, I have listed mine on ebay. The Brera lives outdoors so not much use to me. These, I believe, are quite rare, I can't remember the last time I saw one for sale. It's red with big...

    Thought I would update re the, multiple, small jobs required on the 348. It appears to be running well after a good few years off the road. I had an oil leak, and then a coolant leak which have both stopped. Cigarette lighter blowing fuse, was shorted, removed, and replaced. The front wheels...

    Phase 3 Spider

    Well, I went out looking for a wee hatch back to scoot around in, and came back with this! A 2004 Phase 3 Spider 2.0 JTS, a much more sensible choice lol. It needs a few wee jobs doing and a bit of cosmetic tidying, but drives quite well.

    Scottish Italian Car Show

    After 20 years or so, the Alfa Owners Club will not be hosting the show this year. It was always a good day out, even when the weather was bad, and was good to catch up with friends old and new.

    V6 Spider Damage Repair

    I thought I'd start a thread to follow the repair of my Spider, which may help owners with similar damage at some point. It look a glancing blow to the front nearside which has pushed both front chassis members, and radiator packs, around 2 inches to the right, and also pushed in the nearside...

    Track Day in the Spider

    Had a Performance Driving Course at Knockhill Circuit as a gift. Took the 3.0 Spider, what a surprise. For a standard road car handled really well, the engine between 4 and 7 thousand rpm is just superb. Instructor and myself left with a big smile. I think he was surprised also.

    3.0 GTV Project

    I am putting my 2000 3.0 GTV project up for sale. Loss of garage, plus house renovations mean, realistically, this wont get done anytime soon. It was a Pro Alfa car, few nice mods and work done, but requires head gaskets done. Looking for £1000 for it. It is on Alfaowner and Pistonheads.

    Hi, I am having a clear out and have this grille, which came with a lot of Lamborghini stuff I once bought. I think it's Lancia, but not sure which model. Any ideas?

    3.0 Spider

    Well took delivery of the Spider today, out for a shakedown, not too bad. Couple of niggles, gap between drivers window and hood at rear, and indicators not self cancelling. Bonnet release a bit suspect, but on the whole quite good :)

    Alfa 159 Sportwagon

    Some may remember earlier in the year I was thinking about getting a Mito, as a wee run around. This would have meant keeping the bil ML55 for dog duties, family runs and stuff. Went the other way now, thinking of changing the ML for a 159 2.4jtdm Sportwagon and keeping our present runaround...

    Started thinking of getting a Mito as a wee runabout. Initialy thought 1.6JTDM, but then went to look at a 1.4 120. Thought it was nippier, though consumption not as good but not too much of an issue, so then thought 120? why not a 155? Now the man maths has kicked in I'm thinking stretch the...
