    Good afternoon, I've been looking to fit a DV+ diverter valve to my Cloverleaf, but it's the early model.

  10. Fitting roof rails to a 159 estate

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I've read that you can't fit roof rails to a sportswagon which didn't have them from the factory due to body strength issues. I'm currently stripping a sportswagon which has roof rails and can see all the internal structure but i can't see any added strength which i suspect wouldn't be there on...

  15. Fitting EGR blanking plates.

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    So the big square one blocks the EGR shaped hole on the inlet manifold therefore allowing the engine to only draw in fresh air. The second one. Do you fit this on the exhaust manifold where the EGR gasses start their journey or where the EGR gasses enter the EGR valve? I'm guessing it goes on...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    What's involved in fitting 2.4 brembo calipers to a 159 1.9JTDm? Is it a straight bolt on job? Do you need to change to the larger discs or can you use them with the standard ones? I'm running 17" wheels already.
