    As it says really, which fuel do you prefer in your 916 and why? Craig
  2. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, I own a 2004 156 jts and I absolutely love it. I have read about carbon issues with this engine and I'm wondering if anyone has experience with using aerosol products like crc, seafoam, liquidmolly, etc? I am looking at using the products which are sprayed through the air intake and...
  3. Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi Everyone, I have the standard head unit that I want to keep and have come up with a way I'm happy with that places a separate sat nav screen higher on the console using the centre air vent as a mount. I purchased the carbon fibre centre console and gear surround. Fitting them the head unit...
  4. General Motoring Discussion
    There’s discussion about getting carbon fibre bits for our cars. I had the carbon mirror caps on my Giulietta and they looked great, but no lighter than the plastic originals. The Giulia and Stelvio come with a carbon drive shaft which must be beneficial in weight and rigidity terms. The...
  5. Alfa Giulia
    Has anyone bought a carbon fibre grill off Ali express ? Are they any good ? Does it fit over the existing one or is it a replacement ?
  6. Alfa Giulia
    I just bought a Stelvio Milano in Misano Blu. Love the car but I love the carbon fibre trim which is on the TI and Quadrifoglio. Has anyone upgraded their internal trim with after-market carbon fibre bits? If so, where have you purchased from and are they easy to fit? I am thinking the...

  9. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, Anyone know where the canister and one way valve that does the job of absorbing fuel vapour from the fuel tank is, on a 156? I assume it's somewhere under the right hand wing buried behind the wheel arch liner, as I can see the blue pipe running behind the washer bottle on that side...
  10. Alfa Giulia
    Hi all, When considering a Giulia, what are your thoughts on this aftermarket carbon spoiler? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/For-Alfa-Romeo-Giulia-Carbon-Fibre-Rear-Trunk-Boot-Wing-Spoiler-Quadrifoglio/264419030016 Does the style/pattern look the same as standard and how much of a pig are they to...
  11. Alfa Giulietta
    I am selling my Carbon Look Hyro-dipped Handles. They are used but in great condition and look amazing once installed - £80 delivered (within the UK).
  12. Alfa Giulia
    I have my eye on a used Giulia Veloce. The spec is everything I want however, I really (really) like the carbon fibre plate surrounding the gear knob, which is usually fitted on a QF and Veloce TI. Does anyone know if this can be retrofitted, and if so, is it a relatively easy job and if so...
  13. General Alfa Discussion
    Does anyone have the contact number for Kuro Carbon ? I sent off my mirror caps to be finished in carbon fibre and after some initial positive messages via Facebook the owner, Dave, is now ignoring me completely. It’s been over three months now and he’s ignored all my messages bar the one...

    Hi guys, I have just purchased 2 sabelt carbon bucket seats and I am just testing the water on interest and possible price of resale. TIA Myles
  15. Engines (TS, JTS, JTD & V6)
    I think everyone knows about this by now. Direct injection = no fuel to wash clean the backs of the inlet valves. There are various theories about how this occurs but I think we can discount the oil misting from the crank breather straight away. Other ideas are catalytic action from inlet...
  16. Alfa Giulia
    Does anyone know where I can purchase a pair of Sparco Carbon seats for my Giulia Quadrifoglio? Alfa Romeo dealers are saying they are not on the parts list for them to order. Has anyone managed to buy and retro fit these seats?
  17. Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Been a long while since posting here, but now I have a reason. After 10 years in the sun, the B-pillars on my 159 Sportwagon have become faded and blotchy. I toyed with the idea of respraying them, but couldn't be faffed in the end, and I wasn't sure if they'd look any good afterwards. Instead...
  18. Alfa Giulietta
    Id like to upgrade the gas dampers for the bonnet and rear hatch to carbon fibre ones. Anyone know if the stock Giulietta are a standard size used by other vehicle's/models etc as i'm having great difficulty finding out. There's plenty on the market for Subaru, Mazda, Toyota etc so was hoping...

    Looking for an Autodelta intake pipe please if someone’s letting one go. Thanks.
  20. Alfa MiTo
    Hi AO, Have seen a few MiTo owners on instagram with Sabelt Carbon-backed bucket seats. I understand these were available as a ~£2,000 option on the later MiTos, and a similar version seems to be available in one (or more) of the Abarth 500 special editions. Anyone know: +Do these tilt...
