    Alfa 145 & 146
    Searching gumtree for a little run around I came across a 145 cloverleaf for £500, it looked rough, and for sure the paint aint going to win it any concourse awards, this one was for some reason fascinating as the advertiser had put text on around KM's & Miles, swapping dash out etc etc... It...

    What's the story on these? I've seen hundreds of the buggers on my road trip through France up to Scotland. Diahatsus, Toyotas and Mazdas all with the telltale square UK reg plate of a grey import car. :confused:

    Has anyone had any successful dealings with any Japanese tuning companies? I have tried emailing both Flat Out and Orque, but I have had no response other than automated responses, I have tried English and dodgy Japanese via babelfish and the like, but nothing.
