  2. Carbon Fibre bits

    General Motoring Discussion
    There’s discussion about getting carbon fibre bits for our cars. I had the carbon mirror caps on my Giulietta and they looked great, but no lighter than the plastic originals. The Giulia and Stelvio come with a carbon drive shaft which must be beneficial in weight and rigidity terms. The...

    Alfa Giulia
    I have my eye on a used Giulia Veloce. The spec is everything I want however, I really (really) like the carbon fibre plate surrounding the gear knob, which is usually fitted on a QF and Veloce TI. Does anyone know if this can be retrofitted, and if so, is it a relatively easy job and if so...
  8. Carbon fibre B-pillar covers

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Been a long while since posting here, but now I have a reason. After 10 years in the sun, the B-pillars on my 159 Sportwagon have become faded and blotchy.
