  2. Alfa GT on 16"s: more comfortable ride?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I've spent so much on my GT recently that I've decided to stick with it and get it to a point where I'm really happy with it. I love the look of the 17" multispokes that I have on currently, but the ride is just too harsh, its making me not enjoy the car. Especially on these terrible potholed...
  3. My car is not a comfortable ride

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Greetings people, Last year I bought my car (ALFA Romeo 147 selespeed 2003 model), and I am very happy with the performance and beginning to understand selespeed, but the ride is very uncomfortable. I live in Maseru, Lesotho, Southern Africa and some of the roads are just not perfect and every...

  6. Are p2 seats more comfortable than p1 seats?

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi there, Was wondering about the differences between the p2 and the p1. Main difference I can see visually is the leather seat design. Are the p2 seats a much better design? Does anyone have experience in both, to compare comfort levels? Sorry for the silly question.
  7. Does Dynamic just make the car less comfortable?

    Alfa MiTo
    Now I know this is going to get some people hot and bothered but this is a serious question so if you feel like a rant at me for even daring to critiscise DNA can I ask you to go elsewhere please! On Top Gear on Sunday during the five minutes of good stuff you get per programme these days...
  8. 156 with 18". I think it's pretty comfortable.

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hey, I have my summer wheels 18" with 225.40.18 fitted. I was slightly reluctant to give that a go as many seem to speak about it being lousy comfort. But with my Eibach pro kit and stock dampers, 18" just gives me a lot bigger smile each time driving it. I don't think it's uncomfortable. I am...
  9. Thinking of getting a (Comfortable) second car

    General Motoring Discussion
    Im thinking of getting a second car thats comfortable yet sporty and not Bone Jarringly hard like my Alfa. Obviously I like my Alfa for sports performance. But sometimes I just want something easy to drive that glides over bumps rather than getting thrown all over the road by them. I remember...

  11. Still not comfortable

    Alfa 33, Sud & Sprint
    I have owned plenty of Italian cars (Lancia Betas etc) but my new Sprint is the first to really give me problems over getting comfortable at the wheel. I am 6' and have tilted the seat runners with spacers but the steering wheel is always in the wrong place (ie too far away and rubbing on my...
  12. Uprated yet comfortable shocks?

    General Alfa Discussion
    Soon it will be time for me to change the front shocks; my 155 is getting a bit wobbly on bumps and there's too much roll on tight curves. :rolleyes: Compared to when I got her. ;) However I mostly drive B-roads, and as if the numerous potholes and roadworks weren't enough, the locals plant...
