  2. Rear wheel arches

    Alfa Giulietta
    Why do Alfa insist on lining the rear wheel arches with what can only be described as 'carpet'? It's a bugger to clean!

  4. Wheel Arches/Spacers

    Alfa MiTo
    I love the look of the Mitos, the one thing that stands out though is the wheel arch gaps, especially the rears. I'm hoping that if I get some wheel spacers it will take away some of the space around the wheels. On a 2013 Sportiva, what size spacers should I be looking to fit to improve the...
  5. How long should rust treated wheel arches remain rust free?

    General Alfa Discussion
    My husband's 2003 Alfa Romeo 156 GTA had all of it's wheel arches treated for bad rust (including holes) in 2011. On one front wheel arch, a small bubble has formed again at the very front point where it joins to the bumper. Is 5 years a reasonable period to be rust free?

  10. Repair to heavy stone chipping on wheel arches

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, I have been (foolishly) putting this off for too long. The car is a NUvola Blue 414/b 156 Sw. After preparing it back to good clean metal (it's solid under the surface) should you use an aerosol or liquid? I have heard reasonable things about here: Items By Category Page Would this...

  20. Big chunks of paint missing on front arches

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Picture attached says it all - same on the other side. Only noticed as I had jacked the car up to check front disks and pads. My 159 is more than 3 years old (I have decided to keep it - long story!), is this covered by paint warranty?
