Re: Gtv Rims Wheels

Alfas are cool cars because they are made by Italians who are a very stylish race.

As soon as you 'modify' their looks they become uncool because people who do this are usually British and called Colin, or German and called Hans.

This is why they should be left alone, otherwise by a Saxo!

Re: Gtv Rims Wheels

The only upgrade Id put on mine are JTS wheels which again look just perfect also designed by the Paninfarina same people that designed the whole car. Funnily enough they look absolutely perfect. Strange how they managed to do that ! Must have some inside information going on

This is not why Alfas are cool cars, although admittedly Italians do tend to make nice looking things. I think Britain is pretty high up the list with the Italians at creating beautiful designs.

I don't see why everyone thinks Pininfarina is the last word in everything design. Sure they've produced some fantastic looking cars, but they're by no means perfect.

Re: Gtv Rims Wheels

What kind and size rims are people here running on their PH1's Id be very interested to see. I'd like to upgrade soon as I have the, to quote Glod, "very first one with all the holes in it" which to be honest are not very flattering to the car.
Does anyone have a set of tele's on their PH1?

I like these wheels, almost bought them instead of the Tele's i have now.Took me weeks to choose between the two I also like the wheels on Golds car, although they may not look as good on the GTV as they do on the spider. Another GTV i have seen on here is the one with the Fezzer 360 wheels, that looks very

The GTV-TB uses the same front disc as the 156, dont know if it would be possible to fit the bigger 276mm rear disc from later model 156 and space the standard caliper out to fit the extra diameter disc..........probably not worth the effort just for the look

I'd have thought having the sills painted would be fairly easy and cheap? Could be wrong though, it has been known
