Q2 on your 166?

Auto Lusso - Alfa Romeo Q2 Limited Slip Differential Information and Pricing

evidently we can fit Q2 to our cars.

Every time I here Q2 I think "half a Q4 then!" (sadly the wrong half)

Still it would be quite cool.

Yeah, has been mentioned before. Ksuri has one fitted to his 3.2 Ti, the buyer for mine has one waiting to be fitted already!

Re: Q2 on your 166?

Hi guys,

yes i have had the Q2 fitted to my car, and the difference is very noticable.
I am now able to take corners at high speed with no fuss at all, the car holds the road amazingly well. In the past, especially when the road was wet, i would find that the traction control would kick in whenever i drove "energetically", which was good for safety, but somewhat spoilt the fun.
Now, this is not the case, I can feel the slight pull in steeering wheel at times, as the Q2 is doing its stuff ( sorry for the poor technical term!)

All in all, if you like drivng your car fast ( and legally....of course!!), it is a worthwhile enhancement.

Re: Q2 on your 166?

The alfaworkshop do a Q2 fitting service too. Alfa Romeo Independent Garage Covering Herts, Cambs & Essex. . I'm thinking of getting one fitted when I next get the cam belt done, will be expensive vist but worth it I think.
