  1. Alfa Giulietta
    I have a lot of friends which in the first months are super happy with their Racechip or Tmc and after a while the ecu kind of understand that is being manipulated and start rejecting the implant. Is somebody using any brand of Chip tuning box, aka Piggybox with a petrol for more than 6 months...

    Hi, The bonnet of my 159 is peppered with stone chips. I would like to get them touched up and wondered whether it was something which I could do myself (provided I can get the correct paint code), or whether I'm better off having the bonnet resprayed? Thanks in advance.

  10. Car Detailing
    I've had my 159 since November, and recently noticed that the bumper, bonnet and wheel arches are covered in stone chips. A couple appear to have gone down to the metal. The cars 12 years old with 80k miles on it, so it's expected really. Since its a cosmetic issue, I'd rather have someone who...

  16. General Alfa Discussion
    I am looking for some recommendations. On the G and my other car some parts of the car which are subjected to stone chips and gravel rash need repainting. I am thinking of applying a form of anti stonechip coating which can be painted over to protect the metalwork. Has anyone got any...

    Before I made these mods I looked through the forums and could not for the life of me find a thread with any helpful advice. I thought I would post my experience just it case it can help someone out in the future. Despite not being able to find much advice I took the leap of faith and bought a...

    Hi. I'm interested if any one have any experience and suggestions about Chip tuning. I have GT 1.9 JTDM, 2005 and would like to put a chip in. Maybe you have any suggestions what to do before, what to upgrade before putting the chip. And what would be the max power/hp you can actually get...

    Does anyone know where to find the stonechip film for the rear wheel arches on EPER? Mine is missing on one side and for the life of me I cant find it. Just like in the diagram except I need for a 147 not a 159.
