Just as an FYI for anyone considering using Gazzellaracing, read this thread https://www.alfaowner.com/Forum/gener...la-racing.html or Google them before ordering anything

The cadamuro part is a GRP moulding of dubious quality as I remember from a post on here ages ago . The guy ended up using mastic round the edge !

I've used Gazzella three times.

On each occasion Raggazzon have given me a 15% discount code to quote to Chris which has made a very good saving and he's honoured it, the only downside is everything is ordered from Italy and on all three occasions it took over two weeks for my parts to arrive..............

I've driven mine to Bristol and back today. Interesting to note on replacement back box a) no discernible impact on mpg b) maybe a little bit quieter c) seems to pull a little bit more cleanly from 1000rpm.

You knows it! By the way, the parts guy at Sturgess said not to bother with ebay and call them direct because they "are always happy to do a deal". So, give 'em a go with some REALLY silly offers

What about this as an option to modify the rear bumper?

Yep , the clay bar just cleans the paint of contaminants leaving it in full need of protection !

Yesterday I just about managed to squeeze a snow foam wash in. I ran out of light before having the chance to hand wash it, but at least the bulk of the dirt was removed.

First proper drive today, played around with the DNA and as many other settings as I could, anyone know how to get the turbo's boost gauge up on the display?

i have had today these special badge details added to the car. It is a take on the Alfa 60th Giulietta Anniversary shown on their Italian website. Wing ones are in black whereas the one on the boot is in silver as the glass is very dark and if fitted from the inside would not be seen as easily. Measured to ensure the sweep of the wiper arm does not come in contact with the badge. Wheel centres, grill and boot badges swapped for black and silver versions to keep the theme.

Looks like you've beat ARUK & the Sprint to the 60th anniversary edition

Screwed new holes in new number plate to make the front number plate curve to the body shape and not stick out as it had been.

Well I thought it would get the ball rolling!! Graphic work was done and fitted by a local car / van graphic sign company who thought it looked very good. I supplied the idea / concept and they did the artwork.

Cycle through the screens using the button on the end of the right stalk whilst in Dynamic mode and you should eventually come to the boost gauge.

Tries that for ages with no luck, used the good old search function, and found this thread:

Also filled her up and checked the thee pressure, all down low, often happens when the weather turns cold mind
