  1. RAL Code for bright silver metallic

    Car Detailing
    I sent my wheels to be powder coated. I wanted a bright silver colour, but they came back a kind of dull grey...yuck. The guy says if I can get the RAL code for what I want he'll re-do them foc. He reckons he used "wheel-silver" However they are only a light flat metallic and not...
  2. Headlights not very bright

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Not sure if its just me, but i have replaced the standard halogen bulbs for 55w HIDs. Cut off line isn't great, can still see some light above the line, only slightly. but besides this. I'm 90% sure these should be producing more light! along side a boy racer with his Hids in reflectors, they...

  7. S4 Spider - who does the best quality bright work bits?

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Morning. Given the good news that my Spider will live again, I'm going to be investing money in her. By this, I mean a full top quality repaint over & above what the insurance pay for. She's a lifetime car for me so IMHO, money well spent. Anyway, I need new exterior chrome door handles &...
  8. I can now see my speedo clearly in bright sunlight

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I have always had trouble in seeing my speedometer needle in bright sunlight, this may well just be a phase 3 thing. I tried driving with my sidelights on with the illumination control at maximum, this improved things just a very little. I then changed the 4 speedo/rev-counter bulbs from the...

  12. Look on the bright side

    Alfa 164 & 166
    It's a bit of a long story, but I parked the 166 in a parking space at dusk and popped into the chemist, came back and noticed that the mirror was bent forward, thought nothing of it and started driving home. About one k from home I noticed the steering seemed a bit out, and about the same time...

    Hi there, I have a 159 1.9JTS. Fe months ago the car started to stall and sound like misfiring. The car went to the agency for 2 weeks, they checked everything supposedly, the injectors was very obstructed because of the poor quality fuel, the butterfly valve as well. They've also checked if...
  15. Diamond Bright Or Not?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I am eying up a 6 month old black 147 and my dealer (authorised) has offered to apply Diamond Bright free of charge. They said that if I wanted the 6 year 'warranty' on it they would need to charge £100. Hmn, as it is free, is it worth it? I have no idea how well they know how to apply the...
  16. 159: reflections on windscreen with bright dashboard?

    General Alfa Discussion
    Hi, two weeks ago I ordered my 159 with the beige interieur, which has the brownish dashboard. My only concern was and is the reflection in the windscreen. Yesterday I had the bright idea to put my hand (which is somewhat beige) onto the dashboard at normal daylight and was quite surprised how...

  19. Overly bright high beam dash light

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hallo Peeps, Been meaning to ask this for a while... Do any other GT owners fell that the blue high beam warning for the lights is a tad OTT? It pratically lights up my face like a scared bunny when I go to high beams. Seriously considering putting a sticker over it! Am I over sensitive or...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi My plugs are in need of replaceing in a few thou, so I wanted to fit the Iridium plugs. I know the NGK ones, one of the plugs has a life of half the other, but the Denso ones are both 60K estimated (as original) but I cannot find the part numbers to order - probably being thick! Does anyone...
