I went into my local shop and asked and they brought one straight out. They look like a normal Alfa wheel bolt except the tapered (cone-shaped) part between the shaft and the head is a separate piece of metal free to 'wobble' around the bolt shaft to fit both stud patterns.
..and i would love to hear what is compatible/swappable with the shocks springs and antiroll bar (or swaybar where im from).
Sorry, I can't remember! Some kind of Ford Cortina wagon springs and Mazda 626 front swaybar or something. Obviously the swaybar doesn't bolt straight on but its basic shape was near enough to allow it to be fitted. I actually saw a new aftermarket spring set for the Alfa 33 for sale on an auction website a year or so ago, but it may have been old stock and not produced any more.
never mind i got the pic, i see that the grille is a different design and not color coded? am i looking at the right thing? haha
I think they might have been referring to the extra piece of trim running across under the front of the bumper.
You can see it here on my series 2 1.7QV, in grey unpainted plastic:
My series 2 1.5TI doesn't have it:
The side skirts on the two cars are also different.
i have another question, later on i want to give the car a better look and i was thinking about the alfa 33 veloce front bar and Ti rear boot wing, now for the front is it a different shape being series 2 and will it fit properly onto my s1 alfa?
I think it should fit fine. Series 1 and 2 cars are the same shape as far as I know, so you can swap grilles, lights, bumpers etc.
