genuine spares or aftermarket ( birth/trw)
I am a complete petrol head and an amatuer mechanic, however i am new to alfa's. My new toy is a silver 2000 156 1.6TS sedan, and i just love it, never thought a 1.6 can be that much fun.
It needs a lot of work though, specially on the suspension, brakes, engine mounts, clutch areas. I am preparing a big list of spares that i will order from the uk.
anyhow, am aking the experienced people here. if i need my car to be in perfect condition should i use genuine spares by alfaromeo ( quite expensive ) or settle with the aftermarket units.
I can see most online shops like ebspares, shop4parts etc use 2 brands called BIRTH and TRW.
how good are those?
