    I'm just about to replace a couple of tyres and want Sessantas . I know Jay was probably the first one on here to try them then I followed suit and put a pair on the front . They'll go on the rear now , as they've plenty of ' meat ' left on them and I'll fit new Sessantas up front again. I use...
  11. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I don't want to consider, yet, an OBD2 tunning box, because I want an EGR detelete too. From Autolusso it would cost 150+100 for EGR+economy remap. Anything cheaper available within reach? Like if it's just a copy-paste remap, without personalised tunning like Gus does, it's not so important...

  16. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Most of the responses I get will surely be 'search threads yourself', or 'stop flogging a dead horse'. Be aware I have spent hours searching various threads in various forums... but the common 'you've got to go direct to the dealer for them to program rolling codes and bla bla bla, isn't quite...

    I am after 4x 15mm wheel spacers for my spider. Some time ago I got a set of genuine accessories 147 alloy wheels, but the offset is wrong. Ive had some non hub centric 10mm spacers on the back, which I think has brought them back out to the normal offset of the car or just wider. But wanting to...
