    General Alfa Discussion
    So tomorrow I'm getting the alignment of my 156 GTA done, but (I'm quite sure) they don't have the geometry setting in their pc. So my question is simple: what for setup would you advice? My suspension is stock, I've only added a strut bar and changed to 18x8 rims with 245/35/18 tires and 10mm...

    Dear all turbo buffs..... I have a question regarding the internals of the vnt turbo on the 147 jtd.

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Help please! I have just had new P Zero Neros fitting at Elite Direct in Rainham. I also had the 4 Wheel alignment checked, and adjusted. The Hunter machine only had 2 Brera settings on the software, 2.2L and 3.2L, it seems not to have heard of the 'S'. This is also true in my Brera (S)...
  12. 159 TBi Ti Correct Geometry & Tyre Pressures

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Guys, I have searched the forums and appear to have come up short, as I do not know whether the geometry is different for Petrol/Diesels. I have just had the alignment done and attached the printout. Does this look ok, or is the 159 a tricky beast to set up. I have slight tyre wear on insides...
  13. 159 Ti wheel geometry

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Not sure 159 wheel alignment has been discussed before ;) But, after reading through the new set it to zero advice it all seems to point to stopping the 159 tearing through its front tyres. Which is fine, and given the price of Ti tyres i can understand it. But, i bought my Ti for its feel and...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Anyone of you that have lowered your alfa 159 cars, what coil springs did you use and did you make any changes to the suspension geometry setup (camber, caster etc ) ??? I assume that by putting lower coil springs the initial standard suspension setup will not be considered to be the...
