alfa 156 3.2 sw

Hello you all!

I'm Henk Vreugdenhil and just found out about your forum. Checked it out and i like it, so i signed up.

a bit about my self:

i'm 31 years old and living together with my girlfriend and our ragdoll cat in a small village in the netherlands.

and now about my alfa:

I'm driving a alfa 156, build in 2000. originally it was a cf2 2.5 v6 sw.

but there almost nothing left anymore of the original car.

first i changed the interior and switched the original leather interior for the 2005 type leather.

next i build in a GTA 3.2 litre engine from a crashed GTA. And of course also the big 330mm brakes..

Afterthat i build in a new type steeringwheel with audiobuttons and a carpc. the project is still running, because not everything is working yet..

and last but not least, this spring i build on the new type nose, including selfmade lenslamps using a lenskit ordered in china and the new type rear bumper:

i don't know about the regulations in england, but if anyone is interested in those lenskits, just let me know!

Thanks CAS.

carpc isn't really functional yet because of a couple of problems.. but i'm working on it.

I want to use it for: audio, navigation, handfree phone use and carradio of course. maybe i willl try to use ODBII for diagnostics on the car, but i'm not sure about that.
