  15. Brera/159 Strut braces

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Has anyone bothered fitting a strut brace to the Brera or 159? I know you can get one for £90-odd from a main dealer. I know the Brera/159 is highly rigid already so is there no point in dong this? Still, would tying the front suspension towers together in this way improve handling?

  20. Strut braces

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    for a GTV. Has anyone on here fitted one, and potential insurance issues apart, is it worth it and do they make difference to the turn in and handling? If so, where do you get one that doesn't need any modifications under the bonnet and how much?? Pics would be a bonus Thanks
