  1. Cars and Car conversions mid '85 - early '97 £4 each

    General Motoring Discussion
    As some of you may have seen from my Talladega Nights thread, earlier in the year, a friend of mine gave me a huge stack of CCC mags. I would love to keep all of them but storage is very definitely as issue and I don't have time to read them from cover to cover. I don't want to offload all of...

  3. HID Xenon headlight conversions?

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi, I would appreciate it if anyone who has experience of converting a phase 1 Spider to HID xenon headlights would share their knowledge.

  5. any UK people here with LPG conversions of their 166?

    Alfa 164 & 166
    LPG seems like the perfect solution to those who drive long distances with their 166 V6. If you live in a country where LPG is available (I don't). A V6 with half the fuel cost. Brilliant? How is the state of LPG cars in the UK, and why aren't more people doing that instead of buying a diesel?
  6. LPG Conversions for V6s...

    Tuning & Upgrades
    A mate of mine is looking to change his Audi A3 2.0 for something a little more exciting. He mentioned 147 GTAs so I have been encouraging him with tasty sound clips from You Tube. The trouble is all this is stirring my interest again too. I love the sound and potency of the GT V6 and the...
  7. Engine Conversions

  11. Xenon HID conversions - DONT USE XENONSHOP

    Just wanted to warn people based on some HORRENDOUS service that I have recently received when purchasing a conversion kit... In a nutshell, I was shopping around for a HID kit and got completly ripped off by Xenonshop.co.uk. To add to being ripped of, when I questioned it with them, they...

  18. P4 and 1.7 conversions

    Alfa 33, Sud & Sprint
    Just thought that seeing as though you guys wanted to make a new post for this outside of the Air Cleaners post I would start it. I was referring to the P4 by the way. I would love power steering in my Sprint but its too much work for the benefit. I realise thats detrimental to hold a power...
  19. Wiper Conversions

    Alfa 145 & 146
    As the Mods lounge is closed, thought I'd ask here. Does anyone know where I can get a single wiper conversion for the 155 in the UK ???? I was given the address of a site in Holland, but I can't speak or read Dutch and haven't been able to pursue it. Marlon 155 Silverstone
