159 SW Ti 2.0

http://www.alfaowner.com/Forum/showthread.php?t=908674 (I think it's time for a new air filter)

I found my air filter to be in similar condition...shocking!

Might look nice with the chrome strips next to the lights blanked out too, go on, get your masking tape out, let's have look.
Car looks fantastic by the way.

Sorry no, I love the chrome strips on an Alfa grill, so much so that I actually added some when I had my 156 S/W.

The car itself is a real beauty though, so apologies for the negativity.

The splitter looks nice, but bare in mind I've scraped the front bumper on many dips in the road, sometimes coming out of petrol stations, othertimes on random objects and its not even lowered or have any other modifications on it.

Looks fantastic that mine is very similar looking. It's a 2008 model. Unfortunately it doesn't have the roof bars
Just seen your air filter. Makes me want to check mine is okay! Can't be good for power that! Nice work though

5 liters of brake fluid! What's all that for then?

Lovely motor,I fancied a SW for a change but the boss said no. According to my service history & AHM receipts my airfilter should be pristine, I'll need to check that out when I get time .
