  3. How long for heater to kick in?

    Alfa Giulietta

    I want to remove and refurbish the aluminium kick panels in the door sills. Is it just a matter of prising / pulling it up? It looks like it could bend very easily. Grateful for any advice - thanks!
  5. 159 Ti kick panel trims

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    So, i recently bought a (well) used 159 ti, and am in the process of smartening it up, however, one of the biggest bug bears is the kick panel trims, which are pretty badly scuffed, and the red paint from the 'i' is largely missing. As I'm a hopeless painter, and even worse at prepping, I'd...

    Hi there, I have a set of illuminated kick plates for sale. They are unused, as new condition, never fitted, with instructions and all accessories. I purchased them to fit my self, but be aware, they are probably best fitted by a professional, and so I changed my mind. If you are interested...
