  1. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I am ramping up prep for some track days this year in the Twinnie GTV. I will look to get a set of 16 inch wheels (either normal tyres or semi slicks, may be overkill), EBC yellowstuff front pads and standard discs, ATE TYP200, polybush the rear because the car still had original bushes. It will...

    Hi all, I am looking for a cheap, sound GTV V6 of any year, that will need significant work (would like a project), with the only requirements being straight bodywork (paint condition doesn't particularly matter), a clean underside, and not a black or silver car. If anyone knows of one, please...

    Absolutely in love with the body styling and engine. The only thing making me hesitant is reliability even on the well looked after and maintained ones. If anybody owns/has owned one I'd love to hear what it's like to live with and if it gives you any problems

    I have just started my first foray into aftermarket head units. An older Sony one came fitted to my GTV, and it is rubbish. The bright blue screen is so bright it blinds me at night, the colours are non adjustable, and it is impossible to use on the move. Add to that the lack of DAB, Bluetooth...

    I am finding the brakes on the twinnie lacking in bite and stopping power, and was looking at using Mito 305mm Brembo calipers with the associated standard Mito bracket. Would I be correct in thinking this is a straight, bolt on swap, using a V6 GTV 305mm 28mm disc? Do the early 305mm Giulietta...

    Evening Whilst driving my Alfa and under braking there was a loud clunk. Under further inspection the rear engine mount bolts that hold the mount to the frame have fractured/sheared. This can be seen in the photo. I now need to remove the remaining threaded section from the frame and replace...

    Hello, welcome to my project thread. I’ve been doing quite a few little jobs on it of late, so perhaps figure it’s worth throwing something together rather than the odd post in the ‘what are you doing today’ area. Background I had an old 916 several years ago that I bought for the princely...

    I am in the middle of some major surgery on my GTV, replacing the rear sill and quarter panel sections. I am at the point of planning out future rust protection, and have followed the Alfa 916 body repair guide in using weld through etch primer on overlapping joints, and around butt weld areas...

    Hey, On my Alfa GTV 2.0 TS (1996) my battery wasnt charging somehow. 1. Bought new battery (everything was the same) 2. Checked for alternator charging (easily 14.5V with max load (lights, radio..)) 3. Checked for battery current draw when car powered off (15mA) Nothing of these was the...

Also have lots of different interior and exterior parts too many to list prices...

    To the mods: If there is a better spot for this, happy for you to either move it, or hint heavily at me as to where you would like me to move it. Also, if this bends any of the forum rules, I apologise! To readers: This is not my tale of woe, but it does seem to be worth a read...

    I have decided that when my mini restoration is finished, I want to do a few trackdays a year. I am putting the feelers out for a set of wheels that I could put some semi slicks on for trackdays. My preference would be phase 2 spider alloys, though I am open to any suggestions. My budget is...

    Hello! I'm new here - owned a couple of Alfas but never posted on here before! Seeking advice.. Picked up a 2001 ph2 spider TS that had been sat in a garage for years. Changed all the fluids, got her running, but she started to knock... I suspected big end bearings... I'd assumed that the...

    Hi all, Does anyone know what type of aluminum alloy was used to cast these heads? And if it is possible to weld this material? I have a cylinder head that has had the water pump impeller come loose from its shaft. It looks like it was still being driven and unfortunately has worn down the...

    Had my GTV V6 (year 2000) for over 8 years now and it’s always been great. Ran on Shell V Power but then local Shell station changed to Esso so now use their premium unleaded with some Tesco Momentum. Last year started having fuel starvation/power loss at high revs. Was intermittent and...
