  6. Brera/159 V6 Manifold or Headers

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Has anyone done these? I'd like to get them done but I seem to remember that some had some from a UK Alfa specialist and they cracked as the flange was not all stainless steel? I even looked at the Japanese ones but they were about £6k which seems steep for a McLaren let alone an Alfa! Lots of...

I will attempt to do a "How to" as I am yet to find any kind of instruction (probably...

  18. Anyone fitted a Seat Leon Cupra R splitter on a Brera/159?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    The Seat LCR splitter seems to fit a lot of cars. I fitted one to my old Audi S3. Has anyone fitted it to Brera/159? Has it been done? The splitters only £40 so could potentially be a cheap subtle mod.
