  2. 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...
  3. ICE & Blue&Me
    Hello everyone, I've done a lot of research and found out that it is possible to mod in an aux cable in exchange for the rear CD changer. I ordered a cable online and fitted everything. However, when I switch over to CHANGER and play music, it works but it is EXTREMELY soft and it is not making...

  5. 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. Alfa 145 & 146
    Hello, there! Not the most present poster, but thought this time was worth it. Been struggling for this for ages, but good news for all you that think your legs are too long for the 145/146. This is for the LHD versions. Will try to be quick. Removed drivers seat and separated it from the...
  7. General Alfa Discussion
    Hi, everyone! Newbie here. I have been reading these forums over the past few weeks, just as I was about to get my first car. I just pulled the trigger on an Alfa Romeo Mito 1.4tb 155bhp Veloce a few days ago. I am absolutely thrilled with my purchase, it goes like a bullet, all my friends keep...

  9. Alfa Giulia
    Hey all, I have ordered a Veloce which is due for delivery mid March. I am looking into maybe doing something on the exhaust to get a nicer sound out but don’t want invest in a full new exhaust system costing mega bucks. I’m not clued up on the mechanics of it but I’ve read something like a...

    Hi :jester: I've searched but no joy so here goes... Is there a modded grill available that deletes the winged chrome part that holds the badge? (Upper part attached to bonnet) Like the later Giulietras etc, Are the wings stuck on or will it leave a hole in the bonnet? Thanks ?

  14. Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I’m in the process of fixing/replacing my wiper linkage on my newly bought 159. Spotted an image the other day, of where somebody had drilled and bolted straight through the rod and plastic, and reinforced with 2 tie wraps. But now I can’t find the image. Does somebody who knows which image I am...
  15. Alfa Giulia
    Got mine fitted by Ady last week, brilliant mod for all you QF owners. The new one has a memory so it remembers if the valves were left open or closed from a restart. Which now means proper full noise on cold starts. You can also switch it on and off from just switching the ignition on to...
  16. Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Has anyone fitted this mod? I assume what they call the shutter valve is the throttle body at the start of the intake manifold? Any noticeable gains in fitting this or better running/idling?
  17. The Classic Alfa Romeos
    I've been eyeing up the pedal mod someone created on the ARBB for some time and finally got round to making my own version in stainless, its installed and first impressions are; you need a long foot to use it (not a problem with my size 11's) and I'm a bit worried about my foot slipping of the...
