Queensland / New to Queensland, Hail Damaged 33
« Last post by Miss Alfa Sprint on November 27, 2014, 11:31:58 PM »
Hi Queensland Alfa Club Members,

So I have been in Queensland for my first week and was so happy my 33 arrived here safe and sound after transporting her here from Melbourne, but today while at work in Brisbane a hailstorm hit.

This is the damage caused:
- Rear windscreen completely smashed in
- Drivers side mirror smashed
- Dinted bonnet
- Broken antenna
- damage to parcel shelf and speakers

I hope no one else got damage from the storm!

I have to sort out repairs very soon, does anyone know a place I could possibly get some spare parts for a 1988 Alfa 33?


Thanks for the info Phil!
The trouble and strife has been bugging me about her new Giuletta's sun visor. There's a mirror in the passenger side sun visor, but not on the drivers side. From what I can gather the most important thing about driving to work in her mind is the ability to put on one's lippie on whilst waiting at the lights.

So my question is, is anyone aware of a drivers side sun visor out there that has a built in mirror ?
thanks. Potsie.

Yes it is an Auto, and yes I am going to bring it on Sunday morning to Spettacolo. I was planning on bringing both the 159 and the Guiletta, but a bad thing happened on Tuesday night - the 159 has a cracked rear bumper that needs replacing so its not going to be in the line up unfortunately. See ya Sunday.

Its going to be 31, so bring along plenty of suntan creme, and if you have an Alfa Romeo of any description, don't leave it outside, bring it on the ground and park it inside on the ground......except if the ground is full, but you will be told at the gate if there is enough room, see you there, Colin.

General Discussion / 159 diesel automatic no go!
« Last post by KerryH on November 27, 2014, 08:15:45 PM »
Please forgive me, I'm not a mechanical person, I bought my 2009 159 auto diesel because it was simply a beautiful car. I've had a clunk in the gearbox occasionally which I asked the dealer to check- no improvements and continued from time to time until finally the car is no longer drive able.
Although the engine starts and idles in park, as soon as drive or reverse are engaged, the engine stalls. The car has been towed to three different service centres- the previous dealer I purchased the vehicle from, the current dealer and an automatic transmission specialist. So far I have two different opinions, and one "don't know." The EGR has been checked and I'm informed that's not the problem.
The car is currently at the alfa dealer, and although they initially said there would be no charge until they find the problem, they've changed their mind and now want payment to try to find the problem- but they don't know where to start. Can someone please offer me some ideas, the car only has 85,000ks?
