  2. GT Q2 exhaust flex pipe?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Good morning. At low rpm, while accelerating, I hear some kind of metallic noises that disappear as long as I keep moving. Some people told me to check and change the exhaust flex pipe. What do you think about it? Plus, is that a chance that it interfere with max speed? Somehow it seems hard...
  3. Power flex bushes

    Alfa Giulietta
    I have noticed that you can now get powerflex bushes for the front suspension arms and anti roll bars. Has anybody tried these out? Does it make for a better ride / handling?
  4. 156 v6 intake - rubber / flex part

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello, the flexible rubber part of the air intake pipe on the v6 I own is broken. I've found one seller on ebay that is currently selling the GTA version with code 60678022. The GTA one should have the larger diameter and will not fit, but I'm still curious and would like to ask here if it is...
  5. 147 JTD power steering leak... Repair existing flex pipes?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, my 55 147 JTD has sprung a leak in the power steering. It's getting below min in around a week. I had a good look at it this afternoon, and it's one of the little rubber and metal push fit pipes by the coil in the front right which I assume to be a cooler that's gone. Not sure where...
  6. Poly bushes by Super Flex for GTV.

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Having fitted a couple of Superflex bushes to the Fiat 500 rear dampers I've had a look at their website and that have a good selection for the GTV (and other Alfa Romeos). Worth look.
  7. Poly bushes by Super Flex.

    General Alfa Discussion
    Fitted a couple of bushes from Superflex to the Fiat 500 dampers at the rear. No problems at all. Saw on their website they do rather more for Alfa Romeos than I previously thought. Worth having a look at.
  8. Is this normal? suspension flex.

    Alfa GTA
    Got my car in for alignment check. Noticed the rear suspension has about 3mm flex at 3 and 9 o'clock, side to side. Is this normal for standard bushes? The whole strut and hub moves as one. All suspension parts and wheel bearings are new. I personally was expecting small flex in that position as...
  9. V6 cat mounts / flex pip issues

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi I'm having issues with my V6 exhaust. The short flex pipe keeps killing itself - this is the second one I have put on it in about 3 months. I have noticed that my Cat has no mounts on it - the closest mounts are on the middle box. It seams like a lot of weight to be putting on the flex...

  11. ARB Flex

    Alfa GTA
    So, the Eibach ARB kit is *the* upgrade for the GTA. If there was a way to vastly improve the stiffness of the standard ARBs without removing them, would people be interested? I'm thinking the ARBs flex/twist, and the Eibach ones are better because they flex/twist less due to their increased...

  13. Chassis Flex

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi All, I was just backing my G into the garage, which involves driving the back right wheel up over a curb, and was having trouble seeing the garage wall, so I tried to open the door but couldn't. In the end a very firm shove opened it. Once it was back level all was fine. I would have thought...

    Alfa MiTo
    Hi, I'm planning to install a white LED Neon rope light around the triangle-shaped grill of my MiTo and connect it to the daylight system (or whatever). I'm doubtful on the proper voltage though, can you tell me if I should go for the 120V or the 24V? here's the link: Led Neon Flex...
  15. Chassis flex in my 147 GTA

    Alfa GTA
    Hi guys. My 147 gta has KW V2 suspension, 225/45-17 Conti spc3 and a full wheel alignment done recently. If i steer from one side to the other, i feel as if the body flexes quite a bit. I cant recall my earlier 156 did this?! Do i need further upgrades to remove this issue, or does the 147...
