Classic Range Rovers handle quite well for a big solid axle vehicle, but obviously you don’t throw them around like a car. They understeer if pushed too hard. They are very stable at high speed and...

I’m currently running 35/34 on my GT 3.2 V6, which seems OK. The sticker on the door says 36/35 but I have KW V2 coilovers and it is a bit hard with those pressures. Some of my GT mates run 34 all...

I’ve been told by different mechanics and parts guys that German Lemforder control arms are the best and last longer. They are more expensive, but probably worth it in the long run. I have poly...

I have perfect Alfa driving hill country 15 minutes away too, along with some of Australia’s best wineries. We are indeed blessed Jim.

Perhaps we should blame the obsession with driverless cars on companies like Toyota for making cars and driving so boring that people would rather sit back and read a newspaper. An autonomous vehicle...

I like the orange colour on Montreals. Itís very 70s. The other night I had a dream that we bought one that colour in Sydney and were driving it back to Adelaide, then I woke up and sadly it wasnít...

My wife is a committed Alfa driver and is happy driving manual or auto. Her current 2011 159 TI 1750 TBI is a manual but her previous 159 Sportwagon was auto.

I’ve always liked the 164 styling. There is nothing else quite like it and as a result, it will always look good.

Im not sure I agree Del. They finish by saying neither car disappoints in any way and that both are driverís cars. The 164 is an old car now, so it is not going to be the same as a modern one. Having...

So, what happens if you drive one for 400 km at a stretch like many of us do in Australia? Does the overheating only happen if you drive flat out?

I had loads of fun with 50s, 60s and 70s cars over the years, but I love our 2000s Alfas. I could never afford an Alfa back when I was young, but I’ve made up for it since. My GT is an awesome car,...

That sounds and looks really cool. Even though the auto isn’t a deal breaker for me, if a manual was available, I would be tempted. It’s never going to happen for right hand drive countries like...

Just because he has a different opinion to you doesn’t make him a troll.

Both of our current Alfas are six speed manuals and they are great fun, but the fact that Giulias only come in auto...

Thanks for sharing that clip Jim. It’s beautiful. What a stunning sounding guitar she is playing too. Making music is my other passion aside from cars.

You guys are lucky if you are allowed to drive a late model left hand drive on the road over there.

Hi Conrad. The GT seat rails are 55cm apart and 42cm long. The bolts are 28cm apart lengthways, but the inside rail has a bracket at the rear end instead of a bolt hole. I just got back from a 650 km...
