  2. 147 Eibach performance springs

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi everyone. My son had a 147 and was going to fit lowering springs on it. He bought some new Eibach springs, then sold the car and never fitted them. I know he paid nearly £200 for them and I put them on ebay for £100, but no interest. What are they really worth?

    Hi all, I have recently bought a Brera V6 3.2, and after driving it for a few weeks was wondering what is the best route to go to improve the performance. It has only done 43000 miles, and has a Wizard exhaust fitted by Autolusso which sounds great, but I am finding that it just needs a bit...
