  4. B Pillar gloss trim

    Alfa GTA
    The once gloss like trims on my 147 B pillars are looking a bit sorry for themselves. Can these be either renewed or is there anything on the market that would rejuvenate them?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hey all, Ever since I got my car I've had windnoise and I just can't figure out what's causing it. It's coming from the lower A pillar, where it meets the windscreen on the left side. It comes on at about 80-100kph and it's not a continuous noise, nor does it get much louder at higher speeds...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I have had my 2011 159 Ti for a week and it is a beauty, it's much smoother and quieter than my 2007 Lusso, which surprised me considering the 19" wheels. The only niggle I had was a very annoying knocking sound on the door pillar, I can hear it in my right ear and it really irritates me. I...
