  3. Chromey door handles

    Alfa 145 & 146
    Does anyone have some chromey interior door handles from the facelifted '45 that they don't want? The shinier the better obviously as the Younger Mrs S. likes shiny. She doesn't like the regular plastic ones on my old '98 war-horse.. :) Ralf S.

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    After some chavvy wee ba$tard had a go at trying my car and breaking the door handle my heart sank. However tonight I observed one possible cause and something that should perhaps be done periodically. At the end that is hinged (ie the opposite end to the key slot) is a small hinge which...
