New 147 / Old 147 rear bumper spoiler..

Hi Guys...

will the new 147 accessories (front/rear bumper spoilers, skirts etc) fit the older 2001 147 without much hassle Also, the boot spoiler should just stick on, is that correct?
My 147 has the 17" 3-hole alloys on and there's so much space between the wheel arch and tyre. Would you guys recommend lowering or get 'taller' tyres. Jamie at alfa workshop recommends the latter as the ride is stiff enough as it is!!

Cheers chaps and chapettes...

Re: New 147 / Old 147 rear bumper spoiler..

Skirts will fit but facelifted 147 has very different bumpers so bumper spoilers will not. The boot spoiler will fit as well, the only things changed on the tailgate are wider lights and strip at its low side. Spoiler is just glued on.

I wouldn’t recommend you fitting "taller" tyres as this will affect your acceleration and speedo reading. I will bring some extra comfort, but it is up to you weather you consider it worth it. If you consider OEM setup as stiff, don’t go the lowering way neither, you can find some great lower suspension solutions but none being more comfy.

Hi Andy, Sorry cant help. Mine was much older model with no spolier and I have not yet attempted to raise or lower the supensions on any of my cars , other than my BMC Austin 3 litre which has hydrolastic suspension!!!

Good luck and happy new year.
