  1. NEED facelift chassis number

    Alfa MiTo
    Hello fellow Mito owners, I've recently scuffed up my front bumper for my '11 mito and was planning to replace it with the newer 2016 face lift bumper, I believe the sliders match but if anyone has any experience with this I'd greatly appreciate your input. The main question is that I need a...
  2. Great engine v great chassis

    General Motoring Discussion
    Some cars are a mixed bag. So here’s a conundrum. Would you rather have: - a car with a fabulous engine, but a so-so chassis Or... - a car with a fabulous chassis, but a so-so engine? (Assuming for a sec you’re not planning to mod either.) Which path would you take?
  3. Can I get a new chassis plate (VIN number plate)?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    So when they rebuilt the front end of my car, it looks like they forgot to put the chassis plate back on. Or maybe there never was one, don't know about that. I've still got the VIN stamped on the suspension top mount, so that's fine, but I do like the looks of the proper Alfa stamped plates...
  4. 159 Chassis number

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Does anyone now if the Chassis number for the Alfa 159 Sportwagon (07 - 08) is the same as a Brera's Chassis number?

  5. DO GT /156 / 147 use the same chassis and parts?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi Everyone! I recently bought a cheap Alfa GT Q2 that I found in the back of a car warehouse. When I got it to a mechanic, we found that the car had been damaged and poorly repaired in the past. The result being that we need to replace most of the front end: Chassis, radiator mounts, radiator...

  7. 156 brakes and chassis upgrade

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    What do u guys think of foaming the chassis with closed cell structural foam. My car is already in bear metal state as I'm swapping ts to jts (2.0 selespeed) and changing all dash and wiring looms. Any thoughts on fabricating a dual front and rear caliper bracket with a larger master cylinder...
  8. Chassis stiffening plates.

    Alfa GTA
    Hi all, I have temporarily left off the chassis stiffening plates from My GT as they had trapped a lot of moisture and caused a lot of rust to form under the underseal of the floorpan box sections that they bolt too. If you haven't recently checked I would recommend checking them for rust as...

  10. Lost screwdriver bit inside chassis :(

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hello everyone! So, last Saturday I replaced the fuel cap solenoid on my '97 GTV. The old solenoid was malfunctioning, and although it did retract, it would get stuck, leaving the fuel flap in open position. So there I was, hunched over inside the boot of the car, working through the minuscule...

    Has anyone replaced their chassis legs? I'm trying to work out if they are just bolt on or if welding is required.
  15. Chassis stiffener ... again

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Interesting thread about this - not exactly something you can unbolt but maybe worth thinking about on a resto case, or not Integrated Chassis Brace/Stiffener - Alfa Romeo Bulletin Board & Forums

    I am planning some chassis improvements on my 3.2 GTV. Currently I have Koni Sport Yellow adjustables set soft in front and mid on the rear end. I like the balance and handling in this set-up.

    Dear all, I am a newbie in the forum, as I return after 6 years without owning Alfa. In the past I have owned two spiders - a duetto and a 1.6 s4- but now I am back as this week I am finishing the important things of a restoration of a 1991 black 2.0 S4 and planning to have my first...

    Trying to get a paint touch up brush for my newly acquired 99 lusso GTV. Thing is the paint code plate has faded and is unreadable. I take it the paint code will be on file thru the alfa dealer network ? Cheers D
  20. 1987 S3 Spider QV chassis numbers

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    I have been looking for info on chassis numbers for a 1987 S3 Spider QV. I've tried a few Vin decoders but come up with error messages. The car was originally sold new in Belgium but is now UK registered. Did the QVs have their own specific numbers or were they as normal S3s? Mine starts...
