  1. Soft top colour - Triumph or Tragedy?

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    So - what would be your reaction if you saw a Rosso Brunello spider with a maroon/burgundy soft top? Tasteful and elegant or vulgar and vomit-inducing? I can’t make up my mind........am I a Chav???

  3. Finding the original wheel colour

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    After 13 years my Brera's 18" multi-spoke alloys are looking a bit sorry for themselves and the recent new tyres are also not sealing very well so I want to get them completely refurbished. I've had them repainted twice before and both times the colour was nothing like the original, so how do I...

  5. Poor colour match- misano blue

    Alfa Giulia
    My veloce was reversed into whilst parked at a station last week, big scuff, paint off and some severe cracking of paint where the bumper had been pushed in. Took it straight to body shop with impressive reputation and picked it up today. It looks like they've not colour matched well at all...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Just a shout out to Amfalconer and the red stickers he has had made to effectively re colour the "I" on the rear and wing ti badges. Not only do they look great and saved me £30 but they arrived within 2 days of contacting him. Top Bloke
  10. What colour is this Giulia?

    Alfa Giulia
    Thinking of getting a Veloce. This one is advertised near me (well on the same island anyway). The dealer said it's Silverstone Grey. It looks completely different to the Silverstone Grey on the configurator and I've googled Silverstone Grey which to me seems almost silver. This looks like a...

    Had to replace one of my Silver Tecnico QV alloys which buckled. New Alloy arrived and the colour seems ever so slightly different. My car is an early 2017 model so just wondering if anyone can confirm if the finished has changed for the newer models and if so if they could confirm the paint...
  13. Colour polish - snake oil?

    Car Detailing
    I'm no detailer but having bought a very stone chipped black 147 last week decided to give it a going over with some snake oil, the snake oil in question was Sonax 1837551 and have to say I was pretty impressed, if you use the wax crayon and well soaked micro fibre together it certainly hides a...
  14. Colour and resale value

    General Alfa Discussion
    Hey All Was just wondering as a community what you think about the colour of an Alfa in terms of desirability and reselling. Of course the classic Red is top but what would you say are the most desirably colours for an Alfa in terms of reselling and least desirable. For me personally Red...

  20. Colour confusion

    Alfa Giulietta
    Am I assuming right that Cobalto Blue and Blu Anodizatto are the same colour? The codes are the same when you search online, and when I look for touch up paint, it defaults to Cobalto due to the code. Cracking colour and draws loads of attention but shows up lots of imperfections-stays clean...
