  1. Brera seat lowering mod

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi All At 6ft 3 my SV Brera is a little short on head room. I took the seat out yesterday and there are 4 square welded on spacers to the bottom runner rail which you bolt through to the captive nuts in the floor. I cannot see why they cant be cut off (looks like there to help locating during...
  2. Eibach lowering springs or cheap coilover?

    General Alfa Discussion
    Hi all, I own an alfa romeo mito 1.4tb 155. I think the stance of it is kinda way too high out of the factory, I managed to get my hands on some Stance + coilovers for about 70 euros a few months back but I have been hesitant to put them on, as there doesn't seem to be anything online for the...
  3. Lowering springs on my 166

    Alfa 164 & 166
    I have a standard 2000 166. They seem to ride very high. It's an extremely comfortable setup which I like but it does detract from the looks. I was thinking about putting on TI springs or similar. Are they harsher? I don't want to turn it into a sports car, just improve the look a little bit really.

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, I have a guy selling a set of lowering springs. I’ve driven and rode in the car and it was incredibly stable, I thought it was on Eibachs, as they are red. Turns out - they are OMP OVA/2718 - 25mm lowering. Picture included of the rear springs. Has anyone had experience with this brand...
  5. Steering wheel lowering mod?

    Alfa Giulietta
    Having recently reacquainted myself with a Giulietta I was wondering if there was a mod that allowed the steering wheel to be lowered a little more? Being used to a 4C I’m feeling like I’m perched a little high to get a comfortable relationship to the steering wheel. If the wheel could be...
  6. Lowering (images)

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Just in case anyone is really interested, here's a couple of images showing Eibach Pro Kit springs on 2 cars. This is what -30mm (compared to Veloce springs) look like. I posted comments ages ago about Koni Str.t dampers seemingly adding about 10mm on the front ride height. Anyway, judge for...

  8. Lowering MiTo with aftermarket alloys

    Alfa MiTo
    I'm new to this forum and this will be my first post but I'll give it a go! So I'm driving a 2009 1.4 16V MiTo Turismo (nothing too spectacular) and the previous owner added the QV wing badges which look very tidy, it is definitely not a cloverleaf though! I have owned the car for a little...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi I am new to the forum I have recently bought a 2.2 939 Spider thinking of lowering the set up.

    Hello there folks, I’ve owned my Alfa 147 DC for 5 years and it’s never let me down. Apart from a remap and egr delete, it’s standard. I recently had my alloys refurbished to anthracite and they look great. I have noticed the wheels on the back look a bit lost in the Arch now they’re darker...

    Alfa Giulietta
    There is a lot of info regarding springs and shocks but not much info on wheel spacers for the G. I've fitted 15mm H&R wheel spacers F&R with eibach springs and bilstein B4 shocks, no problems so far even with a full load over speed bumps :thumbs: + no rubbing at full lock. I think now it...

    Hi all, I'm looking to lower my mito but have some concerns as the suspension has a sensor on it which effects the DNA system.
