  2. Has my TI been lowered?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi guys, I bought my 159 TI back in November and when I purchased it the seller mentioned it had been lowered by 35mm. It looks slightly lower to the ground than the other 159s I've seen in person (not TIs) but did not realise that the TIs were lowered as standard (was just browsing the 159...
  3. Lowered Stelv

    Alfa Stelvio
    I am looking at changing the 'family's' SUV but as much as Alfa is in my blood, I'm struggling to fall in love with the looks of the Stelvio. If it drives half as well as my Giulia, then it will be brilliant for an SUV, but I do find the front end rather tall and tweepy toed. I haven't seen a...
  4. Can Spider seats be lowered?

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Must be a common complaint; you really do sit on and not "in" the car. Also means when the hood is up it feels cramped with little headroom. Can anything be done??
  5. Lowered?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I have an 3.2 159 in lusso spec, how low do they sit? I have 17" wheels and the rear sits just above the rear tyres. Are the TI lower? I'm trying to see if it's been lowered in the past. Ta
  6. Renewing a lowered suspension

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Another suspension thread. My 147's dampers feel too worn lately (fitted somewhere between 2004 and 2005 if i remember well), the ride became quite bouncy so it is time renew some parts. My current setup is Bilstein B8 on H&R springs with about 80K Kms on the clock. Revalving the B8s are not an...

    Alfa 33, Sud & Sprint
    Good Morning, I have an Alfa 33 1.7 8V (1993) however when I look at pics of other 33 i see them higher than mine. My current car has about 2.5cm clearance between the wheelarch and the tyre and I am using 13" Tyres with 175X70 Also the floor is only a hand from the ground 6 - 7 cm. I know...

  9. Kiwi living in Ireland - First Alfa 159 Estate

    Introduce Yourself
    Hi everyone, I've been using this forum for the last few months after I brought a 159 Estate 07. It's amazing how useful it's been. I've got a few questions now so I thought I'd introduce myself. Anyway, I've moved to Ireland (Maynooth, Co Kildare) about 18months ago from New Zealand. I've...
  10. How can I tell if y V6 spider has been lowered?

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    My spider sits pretty low-so im guessing it has been lowered at some time and I also can't get the oem Alfa scissor jack under the jacking points when the car is sat on level ground. Can somebody tell me the clearance from ground to sill, or ground to underneath the wheel arch or any other way I...
  11. Lowered Alfa GT.

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    So I nipped down to get my car tracked up after fitting Koni FSD's Eibachs, Powerflex ARB's and a few other bushes. I had been driving the car whilst doing the work so expected tyre wear....now before I go buying a new set of tyres. My camber is -2.56 (as its lowered). Toe is set to 0. (well...
  12. Lowered on 16s

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi, anyone have any pics of a lowered G with 16" alloys? Looking at eibach/b4 combo, car is on 16" turbines. Haven't got the spare grand or so to upgrade to 17s, might get the 16s refinished in gunmetal... Cheers
  13. Pic request - lowered Gs

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi, 65 plate Distinctive 1.4 120 tb G with 18 inch 5 hole alloys. Currently sitting way to high for my liking! Im after pictures of petrol Gs lowered on either eibachs, novitecs or H&R springs, coilovers as well. Planning on ordering next week but unsure of the drop I am after. Are eibachs...

  15. tracking after car is lowered

    Alfa Giulietta
    hi just wondering how they do laser alignment after lowering springs are added as I thought it throws out the computer adjustment..what do your garages do to track your lowered gs. thanks
  16. Lowered by how much

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Iv just bought my Alfa 156 and it is lowered with 19in wheels on but yesterday the wheel was rubbing on something so I jacked it up and found the rear Spring had gone off the shock and noticed the spring had been cut so I need to find new springs now but what is the lowest I could go on 19in...
  17. Anyone lowered a 1.9 Ti?!

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I know the Ti is already a little lower than the other models, I’d like it a little lower still. I don't want to go coilovers or anything silly. Ideally some Eibach springs maybe but wonder if they are more geared for the other models in the range an unlikely to see a difference on the Ti?
  18. Those of you who are lowered... camber question...

    Alfa Giulietta
    To those who are lowered, whether it be springs, springs/shocks or coilovers... Did you see any natural camber upon lowering your car? In the negative direction? Considering wheel options, and I'd like to go a bit wider, and get them as flush to the fenders as possible. The rears should be OK...
