GTV 916C1 24v V6

I fitted a ricambi originali expansion tank to my TS a couple years ago when fitting an aluminium radiator. It was bought through Ebay.de, it came from Italy.

I transferred it over to the V6 today, such a difference, going to be a lot easier to keep an eye on coolant levels now.

Does anyone have any incite into what causes the discoloration ?

(Top tip, I used a 99p turkey baster to incrementally remove the coolant from the tank, negating the need for a full drain and re-bleed.. i think)

From their website

Quick update on the progress of our new production of header tanks for 916 GTV and Spiders.

The OE number was 60583517 and has been out of production by Alfa for quite some time.

The first sample has just been finished and is currently under test. We hope to have the first production available for sale in September.
