156 Veloce

Swing Low

Hello everyone,

As a new, proud owner of a 156 Veloce (02), I have noticed that the underside engine compartment is perilously close to the ground. In fact, driving around Kingston where there are untold amounts of speed ramps is not much fun! Is this normal for the 156 or has it just been lowered by a previous owner?

Re: Swing Low

which engine do u have? i have a GTA and its seriously low. IIRC the diesels also are low slung. i remedied this by purchasing a new engine guard. lifts the height of the bottom of the engine by about 20-30mm i think. avail on alfisti shop. not 2 up on the tsparks tho.
