  1. The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Hi. I'm considering permanently importing my Spider into Portugal. Has anyone got any experience of converting headlamps for driving in europe so that local MOT tests can pass? Thanks

    Just back in after 2.5 hours replacing my headlamp lens, I forgot to take pictures in my excitement to get it done though. I got a good second hand one from a breakers but because it wasn't a Cloverleaf one I had to swap out the silver trim inside the lens for my own black one. Fairly easy to...

    Does anyone have a good used GT Cloverleaf/Blackline drivers side headlamp they would sell? Mine is crazed beyond redemption.
  4. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Evening all, was just wondering if anybody had tried doing an led headlamp upgrade/conversion. Are they any better or is the beam everywhere?? Any advice would be great :cheeky:
  5. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Previous owner had left loads of glue & staying all over headlights (I’d guess from stick on beam adjusters) and it’s been bugging me for ages so yesterday (after installing carpet in GTV) I thought I’d tackle this little one Using an autoglym kit & cordless drill it’s all fairly straight...

  8. Alfa Giulietta
    Hi gentlemen, Did anybody have try / experience of changing a 1.4T Sportiva’s headlamp to a black out QV headlamp? I’ve a little crash and and broke the mount of the RH headlamp. I’m think of just replace a new RH one or change to a pair of QV black out style. Just wondering it would be a...
  9. Alfa 164 & 166
    Hi! I’m in the process of getting some actual light output on my preFL lights because my dipped beams are like trying to shine a light with my iPhone through the windscreen. The car in question is my restored Zender 166. This is going to get the blackened GTA treatment to the headlamps while...
  10. Alfa 164 & 166
    i have a set of QV bumpers for my 164 with the headlamp washers and i was wondering if its possible to retrofit them onto my Lusso to get them working, i understand the washer equipped models had a bigger reservoir and a seperate pump for the headlamps, but could i just t-piece straight into...
  11. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, I own a 2004 (facelift) 156sw 2.5V6 with xenon lights. It looks like the lid to the main beam light is starting to fall into pieces (plastic looks “dry”). The lid for the xenon looks ok, but the light has gone on and off a few at the moment. This is on the left side, right...
  12. Alfa Giulietta
    Morning all, Does anyone know if I need headlamp beam converters for my impending trip to France??? I'll have a quick check in the handbook later but I just thought someone may already know the answer!!! TIA :blabla:
  13. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hey guys, I'm glad to finally join the community. I'd love to know if any of you had any luck opening the AR GT halogen headlamp assembly. Mine's dirty or a different color or both. I think I see water stains. I'd love to open it up and check it out, but before I drop the front bumper I'd love...

    With the recent lack of rain in the UK I've come to notice that the headlamp washers on my 66 QF are no longer firing when washing the windscreen. There's no reference to a specific fuse, so I can only think this is a software bug on my version or a hardware issue. Anybody else encountered?
  15. Alfa 145 & 146
    My Phase 1 145 QV has just failed its MoT due to a broken height adjuster on the n/s headlamp. Does anyone have a good unit I can drop in as a replacement? Retest is booked in for next Fri (13 July) so getting urgent! Cheers
  16. Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    A little background : I'm looking to do a headlamp washer retrofit on my car ( not 159/Brera/Spider ) and the 159 ( for brevity ) style headlamp washer may be the one of the few acceptable options I have. First of all does anyone have a detailed photo of the inside of the bumper to show the...
  17. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    156 JTD - have looked at a few threads and do I seriously have to remove the bumper to replace the headlamp bulbs ? Surely this cannot be the case on such a popular model.
  18. General Alfa Discussion
    Having only just started driving my Alfa GT in the dark (summer purchase) the one thing that has dissapointed me is how [email protected] the headlamps are. Admittedly i've been spoilt in the past having Xenons on my old RX8 but even so there has to be room for improvement on the GT bulbs. How easy is it...
  19. Alfa GTA
    As it's been getting a little darker recently, I've remembered that I upgraded the bulbs in my old 147's headlights to Osram SilverStar. The GT's headlights do seem noticeably dimmer. I take it they wouldn't have put a pair of decent bulbs like SilverStars in as standard, so I need to buy...
  20. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Yesterday evening I came out of the house and the headlamps on my GT were on. It wasn't dark and I hadn't even unlocked the car. When I sat in the light symbol was lit on the dashboard and turning the lights on and off before starting the car made no difference. After starting the car it was...
