Seeing as my G/F (username KiKi) would like a few pics of her car on the site, but is not really sure about how to go about it - I voluntered for her. It is her first Alfa Romeo and I'm pleased to say I think she loves it to bits.
Car is a 98 Phase 1 GTV V6 24V
Colour : Sargassi Green
Mileage : 56000
Owned Since Late August 2008
From the service history file it had been sat unused in a barn for the past 5 years and had covered no recent mileage, so Kiki wanted to bring her back to her former glory.
Work/Modification Kiki has achieved so far.
Clear Side Repeaters
Front Grill Modification complete with new 'AR' badge
Replacement Electric Aerial Fitted
New set of carpet mats
New Kenwood MP3/USB headunit
Twin Exit Single Pipe Exhaust
Team Dynamics 18" Mesh III Alloy Wheels on 35 Profile Rubber
Full Head Overhaul Inc Head Gaskets, Timing Belt/Tensioners, New Rad + Variety Of Cooling System Components Performed at Alfa Workshop.
The car in general runs very nicely, smooth with few knocks, all electrics work pretty much perfectly (touch wood!!) although we may stretch to some Poly Bushes all round next year as a precaution. Handling of car also needs to be improved (with addition of bushes/possible suspension kit/strut brace - undecided). Engine pulls like a Train
Work Left To Do :
Replace throttle cable (Phase 1 Issue) as current one is sticking (next job)
Replace fuel flap as hinge cracked and very weak.
Reset Airbag Light (Previous Owner had disconnected front passenger side under seat airbag cables to allow for child seat or similiar).
Thats pretty much it - now some pretty iffy pics (Kiki will take new ones soon).
Comments Very Much Appreciated.
