  2. Alfa Giulia
    Hello all - my first post as I just picked up a 2018 Ti Sport Guilia and obviously loving it so far. The cars rims came with a bit of curb damage - Im not sure of the make / model of the rims but hoping that someone could point me in the right direction in terms of simply touching up the...
  3. Car Detailing
    Hi all, In servicing the rear brakes and wheelarches and other things whilst I’m there… I decided to clean the rust, dust and muck from the inside of my alloy wheel. I used what I think was Amway Zoom, and removing the rusty surface (mainly rust from off of the discs etc the metal looks...
  4. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I am about to undergo a wheel refurb on some Kahn 5 spoke wheels for my Vela GTV. I was going to go with a light grey metallic, like the 159 Stromboli colour. I am also toying with the idea of paint code 414, or Azzuro Nuvola, since the car is already blue. Would this look stunning or...
  5. Alfa Giulia
    Hello dear community, I have a brand new MY21 Giulia in Misano Blue and I have been unpleasantly surprised about the paint. While New Zealand roads are not great, this is the 5th car I have owned so far and my 3rd Alfa Romeo and I have never seen the paint chipping away so easily. AR GT...
  6. Car Detailing
    Hi everyone! Not sure if I'm in the right category, I wanted to go into the 147, 156 and GT category, but I'm looking at different colors from everywhere. So, the situation is that I have an Alfa GT in Nero Metallico (A/846) but as the car is getting some bodywork done to it and a lot of dings...
  7. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, I am new here. I bought a 147 (07 reg, 60k miles) in December. Really happy with it in nearly all regards so far. I have noticed a few stone chips around the bonnet area, which I am happy to take care of myself. However, I've also noticed some potential delamination of the paint on the...
  8. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, I had a prod under the car and some rusty bits came down. Very flaky! It’ll need properly mending obviously but in the meantime I’m wondering if I should put something on it temporarily to ward off more damage. Oh the tape didn’t hold in the wind! Basically I’m wondering if something...
  9. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Today I decided that I had enough of dull and pink paint. After a weekend being spattered by explosive seagulls and many, many dead bugs, I was so disheartened by the result after a bucket wash that I brought out the big guns: TCut classic all over Turtle wax finish Demon shine and protect...
  10. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello, So I've had my 3.2 V6 GT since November and she's just sailed through her MOT on the first go, woo hoo! Not bad for 82k miles on the clock. Since we are all stuck in quarantine hell, I'm thinking of planning out what to do with her and need some advice. Here's my rough plans: Bodywork...
  11. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    My GTV has a little paint bubling in a bit of a tricky place. What's the best course of action here? Is it possible to fix without removing the rear screen? As far as I understand that is a big job that requires a lot of the interior stripped and the glass will not be re-usable, can anyone...
  12. Alfa Giulia
    Hi. We are considering a MY2020 Giulia Veloce 280 in Misano Blu. How durable is this colour and how is the paint quality in general?
  13. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi All, been away for ages. My better half had to work in another city with our little one for some time, with far worse winter conditions than my Bella is capable of with its Koni sport kit. Drove a Xantia Hydractive II for more than a year, with Bella resting in the garage. Brilliant car the...
  14. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Quick question: how much do you estimate it would cost to get the bonnet and the 2 mirrors resprayed?
  15. Alfa Giulia
    Does anyone have or know where I can get the paint codes for these standard Giulia alloys? Long story short they have just been refurbed under warranty and have come back silver.....no happy.
  16. Alfa Giulia
    Dear Alfisti friends! I have recently acquired a Giulia with 19 inch veloce rims (grey anthracite) and the previous owner had made some significant scratches on the rims when hitting the curbs :( I was wondering if anyone can advise me a color code/reference from MOTIP which I could buy, so I...
  17. Alfa 164 & 166
    Morning all, Has anyone had experience of the ' Color n Drive - Exact match OEM paint repair kit ' ?. Advert talks a good job, or is there another that you all use as standard from experience....advice appreciated, Tar - Jim.
  18. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Need to access inside the door rocker to fix dent using the paint less repair - is the best access via the wheel arch (after wheel liners off) or can it be accessed after the door sill is removed.
  19. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hey guys - long time watcher, first time poster! Finally got my hands on a low(ish) milage Brera S which has clearly had a re-spray at some point, which would be fine - had they not touched the exhaust tips... Yes, as the title suggests, the previous owner had powder-coated the tips and I'd...
  20. Alfa Giulietta
    Hi all, Proud new owner of a 2014 red Sportiva with Cloverleaf alloys and black leather interior, first Alfa I've owned and really enjoying it - I love that there aren't many around. Unfortunately the Sportiva badges' cloverleafs have almost completely faded from green, and rather than replace...
