Do you have an X1/9 project you'd like to share with the world? Or maybe you've got some technical tips you'd like to share. Or perhaps you've got some stunning photos of your pride and joy that you want to show off.
Well now you can, with a new feature we've just added to the website which lets you create your own personal home page. The feature is available to paid up members only, although your page is there for everyone to see.Add a comment
First Alfa teased us with the 8C but they only made five hundred and it was a bit on the expensive side. Then they showed us the 4C concept which they intend to put into production in 2013. It's mid-engined and rear-wheel drive, so possibly the nearest we'll see to the X1/9 experience, but Alfa only intend to make 2,500 a year and it's still a bit pricey.
But good news may be on the way. Fiat are teaming up with Mazda to develop a new roadster platform. It will underpin the next generation MX-5 and also a new Alfa roadster. Both cars will have their own individual engines and designs, but will share a common platform. Both the Mazda and Alfa variants will be built in Japan.
So, the first affordable, rear-wheel drive roadster from Fiat for many a year, but would you be prepared to drive an Alfa with Japanese DNA?Add a comment
Well, this year's National Event has now taken place and it was certainly one to remember. With a turnout of 35 cars, including five from the Netherlands, we had one of the best attended events in years. The Dalesbridge Centre looked after us superbly and, for the most part, the weather smiled on us (although the first night was a bit wet and wild).Add a comment
One of the benefits of being a Club Members is the availability of technical information. As a member, you get access to our Faults and Fixes Forum which contains hundreds of posts going back a number of years. If you have a technical problem or question, there is a good chance you will find the answer here. Remember, this forum is only available to members.
Also, we have a large number of technical articles in the members area of the site. These can be found under the "X1/9 info" menu (you must be logged on and a current member to see this).
New Wiring Diagrams Available - Steve Sharpe has been busy producing some new wiring diagrams. Not all models are currently covered, but diagrams are available for 1979, 1980-1982 and 1985 onwards. A big thanks to Steve for these - please add some comments to the article to show your appreciation. These are available in the Technical Information section under the X1/9 info menu or click here (this link will only work for logged on Club members).Add a comment
