    Hi, I have 185's on the rear and 175's on the front. I am replacing all my tires soon. Can a person put 175's on the rear as well? would there be an impact? Any advice would be appreciated :wobble:

    Hi All, Quick question. What would you pay for a 71 1750 Veloce Spider RHD with full MOT but needs some TLC. I know where one is and thinking about it but don't know if the asking price is good or bad. £11k btw :thumbup: Thanks!

    Hi, Going to do a bare metal respray for my 1971 1750 GTV, other than Red what do people think is the best colour ? The original colour is Hawthorn White which I suppose I should keep but would love something a bit more exciting !.:) Pics would be great.

    Hi I need one of these and they seem unbelievably expensive from the usual Alfa suppliers and wondered if what the part was and whether it was used in any other cars. I'm happy to use a 2nd hand one if in good condition but £350 ($550) seems extortionate. Thanks Chris

    Hey all. I have a set of 1971 GTV front seats that are in pretty bad shape. I need new foam and either leather/vinyl to restore them. Everything mechanically works well, but they are ripped in several places. Can anyone refer me to a place that sell seat kits? Thanks!! Garet

We've swopped the rear springs and its made no difference, it seems like its high (or low) at one of the front corners. I've noticed the spring platforms are different...
