  1. Exhaust modifications on 280T

    Alfa Stelvio
    Has anyone made any kind of changes to the exhaust system on their Stelvio 280T? I can see the likes of Remus (Remus Exhaust system for Alfa Romeo Stelvio Q4 ?

  3. Alfa 156 1.8 TS modifications

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello guys, I was thinking to do some changes to my 156, it's beautiful but I think with 16 inch wheels and a truck height doesn't really show its potential. Here below what I'm aiming to do: - Change wheels from standard 16inch to 17 inch JR 3 white alloy or white Bola B1. - lower the car of...
  4. Insurance and "modifications"

    General Motoring Discussion
    Before calling Hastings and having them potentially decide I am modifying my car just for asking a question, I thought I'd ask elsewhere for advice. I have a 156 Lusso 2001 so pre anything-lift. I bought a 156 JTD with the updated interior, VDC and side curtain airbags (you can probably see...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi, now I have got most of the major essential jobs out of the way I've started doing a few little modifications to make my 159 a little more individual... I thought I'd start a thread and just add to it as things get done. Today's job was to smarten up the centre consul area. It was the...

  7. Intake modifications 164 Super

    Alfa 164 & 166
    I got rid of my 12v and acquired a 24v Super 164 from 1993. So far I have been going over the entire suspension, replacing bushes, troubleshooting the "electrical suspension control" (the ride is a tad harsh, so something is not working properly..) Also replaced the disks with slotted ones in...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi I am going to track My Alfa GT 1.9JTD at Spa in October. The only modification it has is a remap. The cars it will be sharing the track with are at best Megane RS, 320ds. So I want to be able to keep up! I have around £300 to spend. What should I spend it on. Thanks

    Hi all, I have a Giulietta remapped to the safe limit for the clutch and turbo and am looking to move on to stage 2.

  10. Modifications that Actually works for Alfa 156 2.5 V6

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Greetigs Alfa males, I enjoy driving my V6, very powerful in the first 3 gears. I would like to know if there is any modifications available that would make it even go faster? I nearly had my ECU remapped, but didn't proceed because my mechanic told me it is "bull". He also said that putting a...

  13. Modifications and Insurance - a cautionary tale.

    General Alfa Discussion
    So - our 1998 2.0 GTV blew it's second engine and this time it is goodnight. Since semi retirement - I am 62 - we visit the children/grandchildren much more so we thought we'd go for economy so decided on a diesel 147. Saw a very nice one that was in for a service at our local indie and was...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi guys, I'm taking a bold step and taking my car back to standard-ish.

  20. Airbox modifications

    Alfa GTA
    Sitting here in Dorset with the rain hammering down I was wondering if it was feasible to take an angle grinder to my 147's bonnet and fit a snorkel from a Defender ? Maybe an opportunity for Autolusso ? Seriously though folks take care out there as standing water / puddles are deceptive. Have a...
