  1. Help needed with wheel fitment AR147

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello, i have decided to upgrade my wheels but i can't decide which wheel size to put on. Should i choose 17x7 or 17x8 ? My thought is 17x8 with ET 30 offset and 20 or 30 mm suspension height drop. The problem is that 17x8 (215/45/17) with ET 30 pokes out 22.7mm more than before and it can't...
  2. Alfa 166 2.5 V6 - Gearbox fitment amd changing

    Alfa 164 & 166
    Hello! My gearbox on my Alfa is dead. I can drive it, but it's a nightmare that I can't describe in english language. Sooo, I need a new one. A "new one" means that in my country I have a lot of Alfa's 166 for parts, but not any 2.0 turbo, or 2.5, or 3.0. So, I can fit a 2.4JTD one?
  3. Wheel fitment

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi I bought these wheels and put them on my series 1 gtv but where the wheel meets the hub it looks a bit odd. The original wheels didn’t have the space between the bolt hole housing. Can anyone check their’s to see if it’s different...
  4. V6 SMF release bearing fitment question

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I have just purchased a new Valeo 3 part clutch kit from for a total of £134.19, which I thought was a pretty good price. As I have an SMF to fit when it all goes back together, this kit is for the 3.2 V6 rather than the normal one (for my car) for the DMF on the 3.0L CF2 V6...
  5. QV Wheels for 159 in perfect fitment. Thoughts?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi Guys, I am new to the Alfa scene. Always wanted one. Bought a 2010 159 2.0 JTDM 170 Ti. So far I have fully poly bushed the car. Full Bilstein suspension with eibach springs. Fully refurbed the Brembo brakes to factory standard. Removed the dpf, cat and blocked the egr off with an Alfatune...
  6. LED Driving Lights vs Dust Cover Fitment

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I know a few of you (myself included) had an issue with newer style LED bulbs to replace HID or Halogen Driving Lights, essentially being too long for the headlight and not allowing the dust cover to go back on. Those of you that know me will know I knocked up a 3D printed replacement that was...
  7. Abs sensor fitment

    Alfa MiTo
    Has anyone changed the front abs sensor on their mito? I recently purchased a new one, but it doesn't seem to fit the whole in the knuckle. The whole is round, but the sensor is square at first, but then turns round at the top. Otherwise, the cable and connector is a perfect fit.
  8. Alfa Wheel Fitment

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi folks, Currently running 18" horseshoe wheels on my Brera 3.2 Q4 2007 but wanting to get 19" wheels sorted for it make it look mean. Does anyone know the parameters for ET and what width you can go up to? i know the brake callipers at front don't give much room to play with but spacing is an...
  9. New 159 bumper fitment.

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    My 159 goes in next week to get its front end sorted. It's getting a new front bumper fitted and painted and the front wings, bonnet and door mirror covers repainted. I've got a pair of new brackets for underneath the front bumper which I painted today. Figured that would hopefully protect...
  10. Wheel fitment and options

    Alfa MiTo
    Hi everyone! I own a MiTo Sportiva and - if I'm honest - I hate the wheels. They're just not "alfa" enough for me. I know the MiTo uses the same platform as the Grande Punto/Corsa, but I can't tell if it suffers the same as the Grande in that it uses GM (4x100, 56.6) as opposed Fiat (4x98...
  11. Couple of clutch fitment questions

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Evening. Just dropped the gearbox on 1.9 jtdm gt and have a couple of questions. I'm fitting a solid flywheel conversion and need to know a) what torque are the flywheel bolts and b) with regards to the release bearing, I'm sure I've heard the plastic ring needs to cover the circlip? Pic of how...
  12. Tyre pricing and fitment Goodyear ass 3

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all! I'm looking for a bit of advice - my trusty Alfa independent in Birmingham has always looked after my Bella and quality of work has been excellent - I recently asked them to look into supplying and fitting some new boots for her, and I was given a range of types and brands depending on...
  13. Gear knob fitment

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Been wanting a new knob for a while now and just recently saw a picture of what the gear stick looks like when it's knobless. That fin part at the top looks like a deal killer for nearly every aftermarket knob on the planet. Does the new knob need a slot for that fin to slide into?
  14. Blackline Alloy Original Fitment Dimensions

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hey all! Seemingly a simple question, but one that I couldn't definitely answer through forum trawling and general googlery - What are the fitment dimensions (offset & width) of the original Blackline alloys? Finding info that says ET 33 to ET 35, and 7.5 J to 8 J... So anyone got some...

  16. Engine fitment check

    Engines (TS, JTS, JTD & V6)
    Hay I was wondering although more than likely a bolt in job but just want to confirm I can source a 2.0 ts 146 engine from my local scrappy who it mates with my father. Now I want to know is will the 146 engine bolt onto the 147 gear box. As there is nothing wrong with my engine but I am wanting...
  17. Carpet fitment advice

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    I am looking to get a carpet made up for the s2 spider. Coverdale have a template but it was for an 84 spider, mines a 71. Any one know if there is a big difference? I have attached their drawing/template...
  18. Alfa 159 Eibach fitment

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi I am currently fitting a full set of Eibach to the 159 and I have completed the rears but after stripping down the front have been unable to get the strut assembly cleared the bottom wishbone & out. Is the only way to get the spring/shock assembly out by splitting the shock from the bottom...
  19. 330mm Brake Upgrade Wheel Fitment

    Alfa GTA
    Do the 330mm Brembos fit under the standard teledials on a 2003 GTA? My 305s only just fit under my rims and I'm wondering if I will need spacers to fit the bigger brakes? :paranoid:
