Re: 147 geometry settings
I bought new 16" Selespeed mags from Alfa for my 147, and I took it in yesterday to have tyres fitted to the new mags, and then have them fitted to the car. So naturally I asked them to do alignment aswell. So I told the guys to set the toe to the specs mentoined in one of the threads, 0.00 ie make the front wheels 100% parellel. What a mission, the alignment guy argued with me for about ten minutes, telling me that those settings are out of spec and blah blah blah. So eventually the set it like I asked, but they made me sign that I would not hold them liable for any wear, safety or handling issues that may arrise because of the above settings.
Anyways, I had my alignment set to Alfa specs a while back, and the tyres wore on the inside. And when they put my car on the alignment bay yesterday, the specs where still the same as when I had it set last time, meaning they hadn't changed, so they obviously don't work. So I suggest using the 0.00 spec I used, it's the only logical thing to do after the proper specs don't work.
if you have to ask, then you'll never understand.
