  1. Alfa 166 by MS Design - anyone remember it?

    Alfa 164 & 166
    Here's a rare alternative to the Alfa 166 Zender bodykit / upgrade if anyone's interested. MS Design of Germany offered this rather tasty bodykit, wheels etc as well as suspension upgrades etc. I recall it being expensive & high quality stuff. Those wheels in particular look great on the 166...
  2. Maxton design - experiences?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    After seeing a 147 GTA on the GTA forum with a front splitter from Maxton design, I’ve been considering getting a front splitter and a rear spoiler for my GT 3.2. Does anybody have any experiences to share? My car is Lipary grey, so the next question would be which surface to go for - molet...

  5. 1.9 jtdm crank pulley updated design?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Been trying to source a replacement crankshaft pulley for my 1.9 jtdm. I've tried euro car parts and now ebay and they're both different. My original one has a recessed centre whereas the new one has a solid centre. I think the original bolts won't be long enough. Should I just fit it with...

  13. Least favourite Mito Design features

    Alfa MiTo
    Saw a similar thread on the Guilietta forum and thought it would be interesting to do the same for the Mito. This isn't meant as a thread to slag off the Mito, as overall I enjoy and like it. As with anything however, it's bound to have some design flaws or features which can irritate over...
  14. Radiator internal design question

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Many of you on FB may have seen this but in case you missed it.... A while ago I stumbled across an image of a old Alfa which looked awesome! it got me thinking of how the detailing would look on a Brera of the same colour. So I took the gamble, and i know its not 'original', but I love...

    Hi folks! I currently have the attached wheels for my Mito.

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hello to everyone, I've recently purchased a 159 3.2 JTS Q4 with a stretched timing chain (surprise surprise) and begun the whole process of importing a complete Cloyes timing chain set + original GM VVT's. Gathering information on the two designers (first design 92 link roller chains or...
