New Owner

Good morning everyone. I have just bought a very clean late 54 plate 147 diesel Lusso. It will mainly be used by my wife but having admired the style of the Alfa's since my first Spider experience back in the 70's I am guessing that I will be having a fair share of it as well!
So if any one out there can provide me with tips on this model please feel free to respond.

The 140bhp, I believe, can be increased by fitting a tuning kit which will increase pressure and push up the bhp to about 170 without affecting the engine. Does anyone know any thing about these additional units or thave any experience of them? If you do, or better still have fitted one yourselfI would be very pleased to here from you.

Secondly what ad ons would any one consider appropriate for this model. The wheels are standard so I thought low profile larger alloyswill improve the looks but what about the handling and ride quality?

I would appreciate any advice that is forthcoming, so thankyou in consideration for any help and asistance.
