    I'm an owner of a 2007 Brera, with Blue&Me (without nav). Recently I started looking into a way to play music from Spotify, since using mp3s was getting inconvenient. I uploaded my BMConf.xml file to the blue&me flash website...

  6. New anti roll bar links.

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Next job on the horizon.... Hope it will sort out the rattle from the front end. Went for Mayle HD ones via ebay. Worked out much cheaper than euro car parts wanted. They do indeed look to be good quality and pretty heavy duty. Some photos attached.

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Hi, I'm trying to find the code for my car's original paint. I've found the link to the AR paint codes but without a swatch I'm not sure which one I'm looking for. The car has been painted at least twice, a burgundy then it's current red but I think it was originally green though it's a shade...
  9. Gonna do the drop links on the 147 tomorrow.

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Got the Meyle HD ones as replacements. I'm going to need to get the angle grinder out, aren't I? BTW, when I was doing the shocks I noticed the exhaust was pretty much rusted through. Any recommendations for replacement? Not looking for SS performance, just a straight swap.

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    After reading and our chat on adjustable drop links for our lowered Alfa's i thought i best look for some but the ones i found were either cheap crap or very expensive with no guarantee that they would fit . so ive made my own from cheaper drop links as a test and if they pass the test i can...

  13. Rear Roll Bar Drop Links - Confusion Help Needed!

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Car just failed MOT on rear drop link driver side. Decided to order both a left and a right, I've replaced the drivers side tonight but the one that came off looks like a nearside, (when compared to the one on the nearside.) (The two came in packaged together so can't go on part numbers.) The...
  14. How easy is it to change Anti-Roll bar Drop Links?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Evening All, I have had some good news tonight. The clunky rattling noise in my car is nothing more than a worn out drop link :D Nice and cheap! Now I have been quoted £30 + £15 for fitting and part. So £45 all in for 1 drop link replaced. The garage owner told me that I would most likely be...

  17. Rear knocking noise, drop links?

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi have had a bit of a knocking noise from the rear for a while, seems to be over slight rough roads and not over large bumps. At first thought it could be trim rattling but nothing seems to cure it, not the spare wheel as have tried without it. It did have an advisory of very slight play...

  19. 'First Line' rear ARB drop links - warning

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Just a heads up that there is an error with their drop link naming. They should be 'sided' i.e. a left & a right. First Line have twice had left hand Drop links in their RH packaging. You can actually fit a left link to the RHS, however they sit at a weird angle, I did & it popped out the...
