Many thanks for the welcome I received in the newbies section
I have a few things I need to attend to on our (my wifes) 147. It's a 2004 JTD 16v Multijet 140. It goes like hell! I know it's a diesel but it's nice to have some decent power again (plus 42 mpg). A few things need attending to before we take it to rally's and festivals.
Okay, I could do with some advice / opinions on the following:
Firstly, the valet from hell jet washed the "V" badge off the boot (plus far too much silicon that will be removed at the weekend). Anybody got one or know where to get one at a reasonable price? They are currently £14.95 on flEbay - seems a bit steep to me. Or, what about removing the 16 as well and adding an Alfa triangle / cloverleaf? Or what about a Lusso badge next to the JTD? I don't want it to look naff but a small mod wouldn't hurt.
Alfa Bonnet and Boot Badges
My Mrs also wants the faded back and front Alfa emblems replacing. Considering the car is only 7 years old, they haven't lasted well at all. So more expense. Are the prices on flEbay reasonable? Anyone bought these badges? Are they the real thing?
I wouldn't mind fitting a leather interior. Anyone know what a black leather with red stitching 5 door set goes for? I would need everything including the cards etc. I'm guessing these are quite popular.
I will be fitting a Connects2 iPod adapter. My Mrs just needs a basic iPod option so I can build some playlists for her. Any pitfalls with this?
Apart from that, I need to remove the wheels and clean the breaks. It would be nice to have the calipers cleaned up and the centre of the discs are quite corroded. A bit of gentle elbow grease here.
So any advice, tips or expert help would be gratefully accepted.
