    General Alfa Discussion

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi everyone, I just changed the plugs in my 2001 156 2.5 v6 Q-shift. While I was in there I checked the dipsticks at the front, one Yellow directly behind the cooling fans, and one colored black, just under the air intake tubing. They aren't labeled and I can't seem to figure out which is...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    How different is 612/a to 694 met? I want some skirts but every silver alfa thats being broken doesn't seem to be 694 met grigio sterling. Is this a rare colour? Will it be very noticable if I have 612/a skirts?:thumbs:

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Has anyone had the black inserts in the bumpers colour coded? If so what are the results like, and do you have any pics you can show me? Is it a relatively easy DIY job? I'm torn between trying to source some GTA bumpers or just getting the black bits done in silver. I reckon my chances of...
