    Hi. I'm considering permanently importing my Spider into Portugal. Has anyone got any experience of converting headlamps for driving in europe so that local MOT tests can pass? Thanks

    Hi, I have a alfa 105 series gt junior that has been modified into a fast road spec. I love using this car for road trips and driving days - but having come back from a European trip I would like some more power over the alps. The car currently had an Alfetta 1.8 nord engine with some...

    Hi all, I recently purchased a 2012 159 Ti 3.2 JTS fwd manual. I really like the car, has been an awesome experience so far. Coming from a long line of RWD cars, my preferred layout/drivetrain configuration, I wanted to know the following: I chose the fwd Ti over the auto q4 variant as I...

    Has anyone reading this put a twinspark in their 105 and then converted to carbs? I ask because I'd like to get the left over bits - TS plenum, throttle, idle valve and rubber intake . The reason for this is I am quite convinced now I can bolt on an s4 spider manifold, and connect it to a 75 TS...

    Hello I have purchased a 2004 Alfa 147 2.0. Used to own one ten years ago and i still think it is a really beautiful car. Now I want to EV convert it :) Now I need to figure out how to demount the engine, should it be lifted up or should the car be lifted up and the engine lowered and dragged...

    Hi all, I know there is a possibility to convert the Qsystem to a manual, my question is if there will be any "signs" of the automatic mode after it has been converted to manual? (dashboard lights indicating on automating? lights? indicators?) Thanks! Sam

    Hi all! My '98 Twin Spark's speedo is currently a UK unit with MPH on the outside ring and KPH on the inside ring, however I've seen photos of KPH only instrument clusters/speedometers. Has anyone seen one for sale? Malta's KPH-only, and to go for a spirited drive with the speedo only moving...

    Help! Could any give me an idea on how much my car could be worth? Needs a little cosmetic work, but mechanically sound!

    As some of you might know, the 156.net forum is no more. We knew that the site was going down for a while (lack of traffic) so I took the opportunity to save some of my (hopefully) useful threads. In this series of posts I was looking to change the gearbox on my 98 cf2 156 that I'd (completely)...

    I've pulled out the radiator this evening to change the water pump, and it occurs to me that there is plenty of room to fit an electric fan in front of the radiator and do away with the crude plastic mechanical fan. I'm guessing a lot of you will have done this? Is Revotec the way to go? I...

    Found a panoramic roof lining for the Brera on eBay, and I'm keen to buy, but it mentions that it does not include the front interior light or loom. Is something I can transfer from my current roof lining? Sent from my Toaster using Tapatalk

    Hello Everyone! I wish to inquire about a possible conversion from current and faulty 2Si system (0265204001) to a possible 5.3 system. What I wish to achieve is a newer model that I can diagnose later on with MES, since my current 2Si does not support it, and I can even find out what the heck...

    I was wondering if anyone with a non-Brembo 159 or Brera would be interested in a conversion kit I have. It consists of: 2 x Brembo Calipers 2 x Brembo discs Brembo Pads Set 2 x new front brake hoses (longer than original) Pictures to follow This will convert the original braking to a Brembo...

    Morning all, I wondered if anyone else had attempted a projector HID conversion on their halogen 156 headlamp units? An aquaintence of mine got a lighting specialist to convert his and the Youtube vids on the topic look very fiddly but reasonably straightforward. Any feedback welcome. :classic:

    Hi all, I'm considering changing the gearbox in my 8v JTD from 5-speed to 6-speed. I'm doing a lot of long distance driving these days and the longer ratio would be handy for improving MPG.. Now I'm fairly confident from searching on here that the gearbox from a 16v is a straight swap but...
