  1. Straight after my BMW drives in Munich, I hopped onto a plane to fulfill a bucket list item. Go Italy jiak spaghett. I also popped by Alfa Romeo, Pagani, Lamborghini and Ferrari. As well as playing tourist in Milan, Modena and Rome. The Posts have wayyy too many photos to put here, so here' a link instead. https://carsnkopi.wordpress.com/2023/11/14/italy-auto-otaku-2023-visiting-the-museo-storico-alfa-romeo-part-1/
  2. Production version of the new compact crossover from the Italian auto manufacturer. @Theoldjaffa your cup of tea?
  3. Worrying signs. Article first linked from Jalopnik http://www.driving.co.uk/car-reviews/first-drive-review-2016-alfa-romeo-giulia-2/?CMP=Spklr-_-Editorial-_-FBPAGE-_-SundayTimesDriving-_-20160516-_-Driving-_-470274143-_-Imageandlink&linkId=24540857 However, in other areas, Alfa Romeo seems like a stuck record, its needle unable to play past a reputation for poor quality. One Giulia was wheeled off like an A&E casualty after the infotainment system failed. Another I drove had an engine warning light screaming for attention from the instrument binnacle, and the cruise control refused to switch on. A third car tested suffered a frozen infotainment system, which could only be brought back to life by stopping the car and switching the ignition off and back on, and at times some air vents stopped blowing air whilst others continued. One colleague suffered jammed parking sensors, so they drove around with the car going “beeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep”.
  4. https://www.straitstimes.com/business/companies-markets/alfa-romeo-showroom-shut-staff-laid-off-as-spore-distributorship-set-to-change-hands https://m.sgcarmart.com/articles/articleinfo.php?AID=27419&CT=n SINGAPORE - EuroAutomobile will cease to be the official importer and distributor of Alfa Romeo cars in Singapore, while Komoco Holdings is set to take over the exclusive distributorship next year, The Straits Times has learnt. On Sept 30, the firm, which has held the distributorship since 2004, shut down its Alfa Romeo showroom at Leng Kee Autopoint and laid off four sales staff. EuroAutomobile is a wholly owned subsidiary of Catalist-listed EuroSports Global –known as a distributor of both new and pre-owned ultra-luxury and luxury cars including the Lamborghini brand in Singapore. ST understands that Mr Melvin Goh, founder of EuroSports Global, informed the affected staff of the company's decision when they turned up for work last Friday. One employee, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said he was not shocked by the news as "business has not been great". Sources with knowledge of the situation told ST that Stellantis, which owns Alfa Romeo, picked Komoco as the firm also distributes other Stellantis brands including Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep and Maserati. Komoco is also the dealer for Alfa Romeo and Maserati in Shanghai. When contacted, Ms Tracy Teo, Komoco's marketing director, said: "At this present moment, Komoco has no comment on the matter." EuroSports Global's Mr Goh declined to comment. ST has also contacted Stellantis for comment. ST understands that EuroAutomobile has over 10 Alfa Romeo cars in stock, including test-drive cars and the firm will be selling them with the standard two-year factory warranty. Mr Gabriel Leong, 39, said the Giulia QV – the highest performance model sold in Singapore – which he bought from EuroAutomobile just over a year ago, had came with a two-year maker's warranty and an additional three years warranty from EuroAutomobile. "I hope whoever takes over the distributorship will honour the warranty," said Mr Leong. Data from the Land Transport Authority showed 10 units of Alfa Romeo were sold between January and August in 2022. In 2019, Alfa Romeo registered 60 units, with the number falling to 39 in 2020 and 37 in 2021. For its last financial year ended March, the group reported a net loss of $1.3 million on revenue of $54.4 million. The gross profit of its automobile distribution business fell 10.7 per cent to $8.98 million, while the gross profit margin for the segment dropped 1.3 percentage points to 16.2 per cent due to lower prices in some new car sales. Lamborghini sales rose by $6.22 million to $41.95 million or 77.2 per cent of the group's total revenue. But sales of Alfa Romeo cars dipped by $0.31 million to $6.9 million. In a bourse filing in July, EuroSports Global said it was undergoing a strategic review to consider options for its various businesses to evaluate opportunities and positioning, with a view to unlocking value and maximising potential value for stakeholders. The group said the review, which would include assessing options including potential fund-raising exercises or restructuring of companies within the group, "is timely to assess the future of the business and optimal path for the group to realise its potential".
  5. asking on behalf of friend, so hopefully can gather some solution. my friend's neighbour has been shaming them and pasting all sort of malingering notice. The town council has been called in and has admonish her for what she has done. Still, she refuse to repent. If want to avoid legal confrontation, what may the best solution be??? The police is as usual, clueless what to do when report was made.

  7. There will be 1,770 of these patrolling Italy. The Carabinieri is the division of the Italian military that's responsible for policing the country, and the force has a long historical relationship with Alfa Romeo. As the latest step in this connection is Alfa delivering the first specially equipped Giulia for the Carabinieri's Nuclei Radiomobili patrol units. The force will eventually have a fleet of 1,770 of these vehicles. Under the hood, there's a 2.0-liter engine with 197 horsepower (147 kilowatts) and an eight-speed automatic transmission. This gets the sedan to 62 miles per hour (100 kilometers per hour) in 6.6 seconds and a top speed of 143 mph (230 kph). Special sedan The Carabinieri-spec Giulia gains B4-level armor for the windows and front doors. This is enough to protect against pistol cartridges up to a .44 magnum. There are emergency lights on the roof, and each one has a separate fairing, which makes them look aerodynamic and stylish. There are also flashing lights on the side and LED flashers on the mirrors. An interesting touch on the inside is that the detention cell can only hold one arrested person. The advantage is that three officers could ride in this Giulia. An Important Anniversary The delivery of the new Alfa Romeo Giulia falls exactly 70 years from the date when the first Alfa entered service: this was the 1900 M "Matta." It was followed soon after by the arrival of the 1900 sedan and the consequent birth of the emergency response car of the Carabinieri. Then came the Giulia in the '60s, followed by the Alfetta, Alfa Romeo 90, Alfa Romeo 75, Alfa Romeo 155, Alfa Romeo 156, and Alfa Romeo 159. In 2016, Alfa Romeo delivered two Giulia Quadrifoglios to the Carabinieri for use in Rome and Milan.
  8. The topic sounds unfilial but tolerance hit my limit. Not gonna type millions of words but my parents is too much, hit my nerves and I decide to end ties with them. Demanding for money, insulting and nothing can save this relationship any more. Even my hubby told me, just ignore them, no need to do anything but as far as my concern, I will want to cut off with them legally. any friends have any advise? No flaming please , I labeled myself " unfilial " then............ Let me know the procedure, anyone?Thanks
  9. FCA and PSA merged to save cash. Earlier this year, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles and PSA Group finalized their merger, creating Stellantis. The two joined forces in an effort to cut costs while also creating the world’s fourth-largest automaker. The new conglomerate has promised not to cut jobs or close plants, but those savings have to come from somewhere, and Stellantis is looking everywhere, including the toilets. Reuters is reporting that in Italy, Stellantis is cutting cleaning services and the number of toilets available at some of its factories. At the company’s Mirafiori factory in Turin, Italy, where the new Fiat 500 is being produced, Stellantis has reduced the number of available toilets and cut cleaning services, FMI union member Davide Provenzano told the publication. The company has also reduced temperatures and reorganized transport facilities. Provenzano voiced concerns about such cost-cutting measures during the coronavirus pandemic. Similar cutbacks have happened at the company’s Atessa plant, where the UILM union noted there’d been a 35-percent cut in cleaning services, though that excluded services for disinfecting against the coronavirus. The number of toilets there were left unchanged, though the company is operating at near full capacity. FOIM union member Edi Lazzi told Reuters that he believed the cost-cutting measures were coming from local management. The merger has given Stellantis a monumental task managing more than a dozen brands, some of which now overlap each other in some markets. The merger has already seen the company cancel plans to return Peugeot back to US shores, which began in 2017. Instead, the company will focus on revitalizing the Alfa Romeo brand in the US. Chrysler will also get renewed focus. Other changes have seen Stellantis disband the SRT team, though there will be future SRT models.
  10. A video from @SG Road Vigilante has been circulating showing an Alfa Romeo hitting the road kerb before lurching to the right and flipping over! The incident happened along the long stretch of road before the State Courts and the Ministry of Manpower. The car suffered extensive damage throughout this incident. Credits: Mothership It is definitely a well-loved car, with one sgCarMart consumer reviewer, Michaelkoh, describing the car as something, "Under the radar gem. (With) Striking design and styling without the excessive price tag. Definitely a top consideration for those looking for cars in the $100-120k range." After searching on our sgCarMart used car section, we found that there isn't any current pre-owned Giuletta in the market. If you guys are looking out for an Alfa Romeo Giulietta for your next ride, please keep a lookout for one with an uneven sloping roof and perhaps tyres that are painted with "POTENZA" in white.

  14. This is what a modern Alfa Romeo supercar should look like. When looking at Alfa Romeo's lineage, a handful of models come to mind: The Guilietta, the Spider, and the GTA are a few. But the lovely Montreal, introduced in 1970, often goes overlooked. Maybe because it was a more-expensive, less-impressive alternative to the Jaguar E-Type and Porsche 911. Nevertheless, one designer wants to see the nameplate back in the Alfa Romeo lineup, and his take on a modern Montreal could influence us to say the same. Luca Serafini (the same rendering artist behind the Mustang SUV concept) presents his futuristic take on the old-school Alfa Romeo Montreal. And it's stunning. He calls it the "Montreal Vision GT," and like other Vision GT-branded concepts before it, this one would look at home in the game Gran Turismo Sport. But this concept is more than just a look at what could be; Serafini channels his personal history in this handsome creation. "Back in 1986, my father bought a shiny orange Alfa Romeo Montreal," Serafini notes. "It was all original, except the exhaust system. I remember the night he came home with the quite irregular V8. He parked it in the rear garage. The smoke was surrounding it, and the first thing I saw was the red tailights and chromed mufflers." "As a young boy, I can say it was the beginning of my growing love of the automotive world. Quite often I went downstairs to uncover the orange Alfa to see its reflections, lines, and shapes. Smelling the leather interior and acting like a pro driver. I loved the concave steering wheel, especially. Nowadays, it's not a unicorn – but for me it was." The visual comparisons to the original Montreal are obvious. Alfa Romeo's signature triangular grille, hood-mounted vents, and dual headlights with nifty louvers all carry over. We can only hope that a modern take on the Montreal's original 2.6-liter V8 (maybe with the help of an electric motor) would find its way underhood.

  18. The Alfa Romeo Tonale is a surprise addition at Geneva, with the compact SUV based on the same platform as the Jeep Renegade. There's a new arrival in the compact premium SUV market in the form of the Alfa Romeo Tonale. The Italian auto manufacturer revealed a concept version of the new model at the Geneva Motor Show, and it slots into the range below the Stelvio. Under the skin, the Tonale is based on the same platform as the Jeep Renegade, but it gets a completely different look to its US sister model. The Tonale looks very much like a shrunken Stelvio. Styling features include a distinctive nose with an extended front overhang, the traditional Alfa shield grille and slender three-bulb headlights. A long bonnet leads back to the rakish windscreen, a low roof and curved rear end. Some of the concept's design touches, such as the slender wing mirrors and small tail-lights, are likely to be tweaked for the final production model. There’s no information on engines or specs, but we expect power units to be pulled from elsewhere within the FCA Group, with likely options including the latest Firefly petrol engines seen in the mechanically similar Fiat 500X, but with the added attraction of hybrid drive. Also, the new Alfa is likely to be one of the better handling models in the class, as the Italian firm focuses of offering a range of sharp-handling models. When it does go on sale, the Alfa Tonale will enter an exceedingly crowded SUV market at the very closely-fought small SUV end. The exact size of the newcomer is unknown but it's likely that the brand will be pitching its effort at the likes of the BMW X2, Volkswagen T-Roc and Audi Q3, as well as more mainstream models such as the SEAT Ateca and Nissan Qashqai. The Tonale follows on from the Stelvio in taking its name from a mountain pass. At 1,883 metres the Tonale pass in Northern Italy is lower than the famous Stelvio, which sounds about right for Alfa’s more diminutive SUV model.
  19. Just saw this article by a foreign GTA owner. thought I'd post it Do Share your experiences My wife took the GTA to the shops and on a few errand runs today while I moved people in the bus. She said after spending a day with it that some unusual behaviour came her way: At junctions she was let out immediately where she'd usually end up stuck and waiting a long while. In one case, the guy who let her out waved and said Thank You to her. She found that going along dual carriageways, cars in front veritably jumped to get out of the way. In M and S car park, as she was prowling about trying to find a parking space, a fella waved at her as he walked towards the car park and said he was going and she could follow him back to the space he was about to vacate. Which she did. She also said that when she started it (She tends to step on the gas when starting cars as the bus needs this to start at all) to come out of M and S a large crowd of teenage yoofs nearby cheered, smiled and waved at her. She commented that people smiled at her and she received a number of thumbs up and waves as she prowled out and when stopped in traffic she found she was being glanced at a lot. She was quite confused by it all. She actually praised The Beast which is rare as I usually get more negative comments involving 'waste of time and money' and 'haven't you got anything more useful to do?' Type comments in reference to the GTA. I was pleasantly surprised and felt the need to share. Do any of the assembled male GTAists find their ladyfolk are treated differently in a GTA than in a more day to day car. Or indeed visa-versa?
  20. https://jalopnik.com/the-alfa-romeo-gtv-is-back-with-more-than-600-horsepowe-1826477782 Alfa Romeo’s GTV is a storied nameplate if there ever was one. The GTV, which stands for “Gran Turismo Veloce,” or Fast Grand Touring, has been an Alfa Spider, an Alfa Giulia, an Alfa Alfetta, and a Spider again. And now it’s back with a lot of power. If you can’t read the powerpoint slide helpfully provided to everyone from Alfa’s parent company, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, it’s set to have a 50/50 weight distribution; more than 600 horsepower from “E-Boost,” or what’s more than likely a hybrid setup, all-wheel-drive, and “four-passenger seating.” Or, in other words, it’s going to be a coupe. In case you couldn’t tell already from the faint single line on the side of the car, implying one (1) door per side. You know. Like a coupe. With two doors. That’s what coupes are. In fact, it looks remarkably like an Alfa Giulia coupe, and if we’re doing our math properly, it all sort of implies there’s going to be an Alfa GT as well, in addition to the GTV. Alfa’s got all the engines for a more down-market GT coupe to complement the GTV, complete with a range of four- and six-cylinder engines, after all. And we’ve got no problems with an Alfa Giulia coupe, seeing as how the Giulia is one of the best cars on sale today, when it works. Already we’re seeing this thing aimed at the BMW 8 Series and Polestar One. Not that we’re complaining. More on FCA’s plan as we get it. Alfa Romeo brings back 8C and GTV, and adds two more SUVshttps://www.autocar.co.uk/car-news/industry/alfa-romeo-brings-back-8c-and-gtv-and-adds-two-more-suvs Alfa Romeo will reintroduce two iconic models, the 8C and GTV, by 2022 as part of a bold five-year strategy announced today. It will also launch a new mid-sized SUV and a large SUV that sit, respectively, below and above the Stelvio, which has brought huge success to Alfa Romeo since launching last year. The Italian brand also confirmed long-wheelbase versions of the Giulia and Stelvio. LWB variants are a growing trend, thanks largely to demand in China, where chauffeur-driven cars are popular. The strategy should mean 400,000 sales for Alfa Romeo by 2022, said brand boss Timothy Kuniskis. This year's sales are projected at 170,000 units. The new additions coming by 2022 will almost double Alfa Romeo's line-up, bringing the range to nine models. Currently, it consists of the Giulia, Giulietta, Stelvio, 4C Spider and Mito. The Mito had been highly tipped to be axed, and although there was no mention of it in today's announcement, a product plan slide suggested that the model will be phased out by 2022. The new 8C will be a twin-turbo mid-engined sports car with an electrified front axle delivering at least 700bhp with a 0-62mph time of less than three seconds. The last time we saw the 8C nameplate was during 2007-2010 with the 8C Competizione, which was a front-engined model that used a 4.7-litre Ferrari-derived V8 and achieved the benchmark sprint in 4.2sec. Meanwhile, the GTV — essentially a coupé version of the well-received Giulia — will have more than 600bhp with E-Boost technology, all-wheel drive torque vectoring, 50/50 weight distribution and room for four occupants. The last GTV went off sale in 2005. Talking about its plans to relaunch the 8C and GTV sports cars, Kuniskis said: "Alfa will deliver the sports car of each segment it enters. We know our future depends on staying true to our sports car roots; cars designed to represent the brand’s position and inspire the next generation of customers. “The 8C is a true supercar with a mid-engined, carbonfibre monocoque chassis and electrified AWD system. It’s a car that will be born for the track here at Bolocco. “We also want a sports car as attainable as it is aspirational, so we’re bringing back one of the most fabled names in Alfa history, the GTV. The Quadrofoglio model will deliver more than 600hp." On the two new SUVS, Kuniskis said: "The timing of our expansion plans couldn’t be more optimum. The premium market is growing and there are considerable opportunities int hat segment. “There are two key segments: compact UV [utility vehicle] and full-sized UV. These segments represent 81% of global premium market growth. We will ensure each new product embraces our brand principles. “What we’ve learned in last four years is that when we stay true to Alfa DNA, we can stand out in any segment, as we did with Stelvio.” He added that, by 2022, Alfa Romeo will compete in more than 70% of the premium industry: “We will launch the sports cars of every segment.” As with all FCA brands, Alfa is phasing out diesel engines from its range, and is launching a range of mild hybrids, hybrids and plug-in hybrids. It aims to offer an electrified version of every model in its range by 2022, including six PHEVs. Alfa’s PHEV system will allow cars to complete around 31 miles on pure electric power, and offer 0-62mph times in the mid-4sec area. All of its models will also offer level two or three autonomous driver assistance systems. Talking of the brand's struggles, FCA CEO Sergio Marchionne said: "We got two things wrong - we underestimated the industrial complexity of launching a brand as complex as Alfa. This caused delays in launch, additional cost, and slowed down the development portfolio. We also underestimated the reaction of Germans to the reintroduction of Alfa." "Would I do it again? Not in the same way, but certainly would do it again."
