AutoDelta Owner

Hi,

I've recently bought a 2nd hand 3dr 147 Lusso AutoDelta 2.0 in black and I'm from the midlands.

The car looks great in black with its kit and handles much better than a standard 2.0.

Re: AutoDelta Owner

Hello again.

Well it's a 147 2.0 Lusso AutoDelta in black. Full body kit(no ugly tailgate spoiler!) with alloys, brembo front 4 pot calipers and drilled discs, anti roll bars, sports suspension - All done by Autodelta from new. Engine wise, it's the standard 2.0, however I suspect it may be remapped. The small non-Alfa dealer who sold it to me said that the engine was not modified in any way. Internally it has black alfa sports leather seats, aluminium gearbox knob and aluminium handbrake.

It drives and handles much better than a standard 147, however you really have to watch those bumps and kerbs! It's quite a bumpy ride but there's so much more feedback and not the cushy feeling you get from the standard car, though even the basic car has been criticised by the press for having a bumpy ride!

It's a great looking car and drives great but once you get used to the power, you want more...However I doubt I'll fork out for the AutoDelta £3-4k turbo engine kit!

I've included 2 pics which to be honest don't really do the car complete justice. I'll post some more revealing shots(!) when I get a chance along with the interior.

Hope you like them.

Dav

Re: AutoDelta Owner

Welcome Dav. Great Alfa you have there.
If you want to see if it has been remapped... just let it rev.
One soft option to the turbo conversion is the cams/remap job.

Re: AutoDelta Owner

Welcome to AO, Dav


That is a lovely car you have there, the colour and the bodykit really give the 147 a much more aggressive look. I like the twin exhaust too

Re: AutoDelta Owner

Thanks all for your compliments.

What I like about the look is that it has real character without looking too agressive. Autodelta have done a fantastic job here. Clearly the best kit for the 147 TS.

I admit, I have never seen another Autodelta car on the road and it's nice to drive something rare.

Here's some more pics.
