156 turissmo

Hmmm 2003 156 turismo alloys problem?

I have noticed that there is some 'bubbling' on the outer edges of the alloys . I assume these are the originals supplied withthe car , I am surprised that this is happening on an otherwise well made car .
Does anyone have any info on this subjec tand should there be some responsibility from Alfa to replsace them ?

I would of said that this is common on most alfa alloys if its in early stages have somone like chipsaway give them a going over as it will get alot worse, its unlikly alfa would be intrested in bubbling alloy paint.

its down to what you clean them with too as most cleaners use acid and that eats laquer and creates the bubling your seeing.

hot soapy water and a non acidic cleaner keeps bubles awaybut to late now
