Hi all,

just joined today, hoping somedody may be to help with a couple of problems. I drive GT (2005 2.0l) and recently the airbag warning light has started coming on intermittently while driving... anyone encountered similar problems on GT? ...also I damaged an alloy on the wonderful Irish backroads (pothole!). It's the 17" 16 spoke type and I actually bent the spokes so can't be repaired (I suppose it's possible the vibration may have caused the airbag problem). I've been quoted over 400 for a new rim from Alfa garages and wonder if anyone knows where I could get good quality replica. Any thoughts would be appreciated...

Re: alfa GT

Welcome to AO!

Technical knowledge abounds - but not in this lounge

Go to Alfa GTA & GT - Alfa Romeo Forum and ask your specific question over there - here we just say "Hi" and "Welcome" and we all hug each other

Re: alfa GT

Welcome to the forum, sorry to hear about the wheel. If it can't be repaired, you should try GTA Italian Wheels:

GTA Italian Wheels Limited | Alfa Romeo Style Alloy Wheels, Alfa Romeo Alloys, wheels/tyres for Alfa Romeo cars

Re: alfa GT

Welcome to AO

it would be almost more cost effective to buy a complete new set and get some nice new ones

Well Happy Re: alfa GT

why thank you all, feel warm all over!! ..and thanks for the tip for GTAitalian wheels. Had been on to them already, and I'll probably get a set organised with them. FYI I got another quote from a stealer for 590 for one (this is ludicrous stuff altogether)...I'll transfer my post re; airbag to the technical forum... later dudes...
