Auto Italia has an article on current Alfa range and seem to rate to Q2 quite highly.

squadrone rosso - not quoted yet but with the arb being changed I'm sure it' s only a couple of extra hours, and the diff isn' t to badly priced either

Very good guys... Ive known Chris and John for years and was supposed to get mine in this week for Q2 and Anti roll Bar but think he's a quite busy at the moment. Will give him a call tomorrow. They will probably have both our cars there at the same time.

Re: q2 diff - should i??

How much life is left in the clutch? May as well get it done while the gearbox is off. I'm dying for my clutch to give up so I have an excuse to fit a Q2

Actually im having the clutch done too, not that its gone (now done 39,000 miles) but thought might as well do it while in the same area. Although im told will be quite a lot more labour as the starter motor can be a bXXterd to get off

££££

P.S. Didnt mean to hijack your thread Damian BTW. Q2 seems the way to go.

Diff from EB spares but Chris can order you one in, and dont forget the bearings and seals. Chris is really busy at the moment so im going to take it in and leave it with him for probably at least a week.

It took 3 days to completley sort my clutch and diff, you are right about the starter being a b**tard, there were also various manifold studs that gave a load of grief, its not the diff tat causes all the problems it's the clutch change!
good luck, it is worth it!
