  1. The dark side of the alloy

    Alfa Giulia
    Question not just for Pink Floyd fans :rotate: I just bought a year old Stelvio Milano in Misano Blu. I love everything about the car, but I just wish those silver 20" V-spoke wheels were dark. There is a QF version in Milano Blu in my local dealer and it just looks so much better and...

  5. Searching for Dad's dark blue '74 GTV in Connecticut

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    My father had a 1974 GTV in dark blue. He raced it at Lime Rock with the Aston Martin club for a while, then "sold it to a guy in Norwalk." This was all in the 80s. I'm hoping to get a line on it in the hopes of perhaps bringing it back into the flock. We were living at 43 Glenville Rd in...

    Long story short was going around a tight bend with lots of dirt and gravel on the outside and tail lost it and kerbed the rear wheel. I need a touchup for it. It's the dark 5hole alloys. Any ideas? Code for the paint?
  8. dark 5 hole alloy repair

    Alfa Giulia
    Any one had the Quad dark 5 hole alloys repaired ? Can the normal wheel repairers do it or does it need to be a specialist ? Scrawped my offside fron this morning trying to park next to the curb - Doh so annoying :grumpy:
  9. 19" dark 5 holes vs replicas? how to tell?

    Alfa Giulia
    Hi all I have some of the 19" dark 5 hole wheels on the way. Those of you who have bought them, what markings etc are there on the back to confirm they are genuine alfa wheels, rather than replicas? Ive seen a few photos on here, some with ALFA ROMEO, and someone else saying theirs didnt look...
  10. Dark 5 spoke alloys - best wheel cleaners

    Alfa Giulia
    This may belong in the detailing section but it's not the busiest on there and the wheels are Giulia exclusives. So with the wheels having a more matt look to them, what are the best cleaning products? I used my usual non acid based purple stuff (I think it's wonder wheels stuff) but it left...
  11. Stelvio 20" dark 5 hole alloys

    Alfa Giulia
    I see the Stelvio QF configurator is up on the AR website now, did a cheeky config came out at £71k ouch. But noticed the Stelvio's QF boots are 20" and the rear sizes are 285/30/20 - available in PS4's.... Will they fit the QF.... now there's temptation. Maybe they should have put these on...
  12. Turbines or 5-hole dark alloys?

    Alfa Giulia
    Can’t decide? Took this pic whilst changing winter wheels/tyres (turbines) for summers. The turbines are filthy, as is the rest of the car... cleaned the wheel arches and callipers up whilst I had the wheels off. She looks better after a proper wash!

  17. 156 speedometer numbers dark

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, This weekend the numbers on my speedometer (that tell you how far been and trip, not on the dial) have suddenly gone dark so that you can only see them if you look really hard (they are therefore still working and going up when driven). All other dash lights including the speedo/rev...
  18. Anyone need a rear centre headrest in dark grey leather?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I managed to find some rear headrests for my GT Cloverleaf from a breaker yard. Only wanted the two main seats' headrests but they've sent me and charged me for all 3. Not that I mind too much they were only £12 each plus postage! A far cry from the £225 Alfa wanted...each!! If anyone is in...
  19. Being tempted by the Very Dark Side

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Those of you that have read anything I have written about my Brera will know that I love my car, it ticks nearly all my boxes except one, it's diesel. I would love a V6 but the running costs are crippling, tax, and fuel consumption make it a complete non starter. If I was to push the boat out on...
  20. The Dark Side

    General Motoring Discussion
    I now have four cars sitting on my drive. Alfa Giulietta MGTF Mazda CX 5 And now a BMW Z4. Tomorrow a Mazda RX8 joins the fleet, but destined for use in motor sport. The Z4 brings a huge grin not just a smile, which feels wrong having owned Alfas for 20 years. The dark side is not dark at all.
