My GTV TS,registered 09/08/96.

It needs a bit of TLC but I'm too busy having fun in it to work on it too much at the moment.

I'm guessing the wheels are from a later car,they were on it when I bought it and whilst I wasn't 100% convinced I liked them at first they have grown on me.I did plan on having an Aero spoiler on the back of it,but I am moving away from the idea now though.The orange side repeaters will definitely get binned soon though!.

Nice car btw, what are those wheels?

Any interior pictures?
They are Binno B2's, they were already there when I bought it, I'm still trying to find a good set of old OZ Chronos to replace them.

Here's the interior with my Personal steering wheel, the classic Fiat 500/600 gear knob and a Kenwood radio cassette with cable tape, a technology I never had to replace

By the way, Im not Italian, im a Spanish currently living in Rome but I know some other italian GTV owners who frequent this forum.

2000 V6

Mine has a 3 spoke wheel but I thought it must have been added afterwards but maybe not? My chassis ends 4079.
On another note with Ph 1's and apologies for this "Woe is Me" rant but.... I've had Alfas for years yet I had no idea how troublesome a 916 could actually be - although everyone keeps saying its worth it for the driving experience the truth is that I've not actually really driven it properly yet - and even more depressing is the fact that I have so much more to do before I can even think about really seeing what she can do. Front suspension/tracking/steering/tyre issues are ongoing and unlikely to be resolved soon. I've spent a fortune on clutch/gearbox/rear suspension issues and basically I seem to work on the car constantly...The last owner was a cowboy and most of the jobs I do end up hitting a major snag on the way. There is one positive though - the kids got me some awesome Alfa Romeo cufflinks for Fathers Day on Sunday - and they still seem to be intact.
I'll post a pic of mine soon - when I'm speaking to her again!

I didn't think they did a 3.0 L V6 for the European market?

I thought they were 2.0 L V6 turbo for the lower tax band

They used to sell all the versions in both Italy and Spain but in Italy there arent many 3.0 because of the tax.
