    General Motoring Discussion
    Can I have black ones for my two then and get disapproving looks from pedestrians? https://amp.theguardian.com/environment/2019/oct/22/electric-cars-to-get-green-number-plates-in-new-government-plan
  2. Ti Kick Plates

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Are the Interwebs being very dumb tonight or has nobody ever been able to find 159Ti Kick Plates for sale?? I can only find 3rd party AR ones...hm Anyone? Mines are getting a bit scuffed and worn looking.
  3. Alfa Number plates and car parks

    General Alfa Discussion
    Went to visit may dad in East Surrey Hospital today and tried to pay the exorbitant parking fee but my car was not listed as having entered the car park. That’s the first car park that I’ve used that has only central plate recognition. Anybody else had this issue?
  4. GTV plates M666GTV and S500GTV up for sale

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I am not a great fan of private plates, but have ended up with two GTV plates; M 666 GTV and S 500 GTV Both available for sale on eBay or PM me. The M 666 GTV is great for a red GTV owned by a MUFC fan... Red Devils. To be honest, if I was to keep one on a car, I much prefer the N90OPN...
  5. Fitting EGR blanking plates.

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    So the big square one blocks the EGR shaped hole on the inlet manifold therefore allowing the engine to only draw in fresh air. The second one. Do you fit this on the exhaust manifold where the EGR gasses start their journey or where the EGR gasses enter the EGR valve? I'm guessing it goes on...
  6. Carbon Fibre Lettering on Numbers Plates

    General Motoring Discussion
    So I’ve treated myself to a private number plate for the Brera, I like the look of the 3D gel carbon fibre lettering but are they illegal ? Has anybody been pulled over or fined for it ?
  7. Number plates

    General Motoring Discussion
    The plates on Mrs Bazza's Audi S4 are getting a little grubby - water ingress behind the plastic I assume. I thought I could replace them for her, and then be disgruntled when she never even notices the difference. So, where's the best place nowadays to get just a standard set of plates?
  8. Getting number plates to stick

    Alfa Stelvio
    Anyone else having problems with their number plates? Mine have fallen off a few times mainly due to sun on them but I would prefer not to have to screw them on... Any suggestions?
  9. EGR Blanking Plates

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Which EGR blanking plates (with holes drilled) for 1.9jtd GT - only the rectangular or the diamond or both?? Thanks
  10. Black and White plates

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    After a bit of discussion on one of the Alfa related FB sites I was told that vehicles in the "historic" (tax exempt) class are now eligible to wear B&W registration plates, while the DVLA isn't exactly clear on the matter it would appear to be a rolling programme renewing every April, I'm...
  11. Can't get inner CV cover plates off to change boot

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi there, I've had an account here for a while, but this is my first post, so hopefully I do this right. I have an Alfa 156 2.0 T.Spark needing the inner driver-side CV boot replaced. Following the very good advice on this forum, I've undone the 6 hex head bolts on the inner driver's side CV...
  12. Full chrome Alfa Romeo logo'd kick plates

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Does anyone have a pic of these retro fitted to a GTV? Ta
  13. Delivery drivers on L plates?

    General Motoring Discussion
    I could equally well have posted this in the rant room.......but why on earth are pizza and other food delivery drivers allowed to operate on L plates??!! Surely any "professional" driver should at least have passed a driving test!!!??? There are thousands of untrained kamikaze moped drivers...
  14. Chassis stiffening plates.

    Alfa GTA
    Hi all, I have temporarily left off the chassis stiffening plates from My GT as they had trapped a lot of moisture and caused a lot of rust to form under the underseal of the floorpan box sections that they bolt too. If you haven't recently checked I would recommend checking them for rust as...
  15. Registration Plates

    Alfa Giulia
    Took delivery of new registration plates today......17 ALFA YEAH BABY!!!!!
  16. Putting original plates back on? DVLA knowledge req'd.

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    My GTV was originally registered in Kent in 1998. Since then, its had numerous private reg. plates and currently carries a non-private Northern Ireland plate as it spent the last 5 years with the previous owner in NI. Now its back in England, the NI plate is legal here, not classed as a...
  17. Private registration plates (U.K.)

    Alfa Giulietta
    Been looking at spending a small amount on a number plate and I quite like something like LI9 MYG Obviously my name, Liam, but I liked that the last bit spells MyG. I'm not very imaginative lol. Will I look like a complete tool? haha!
  18. GTV Stolen Number Plates - Update

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi guys, A good while ago I posted a thread under a different username (knoppy1987) before we had a few problems with usernames etc. regarding a case of somebody using my number plates on a car in Hoddesdon, Herts. The car caught was Vela Blue (mine is Proteo Red), had no Aerokit (mine does)...
  19. Number plates

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Just looking to replace my existing number plate plastic facing as it is cracked. Just wondering, the number plate on the front is slightly curved. I bought some plates off ebay, do I need to request a specific design or fit of a numberplate to fit the GTV or will a standard one do but I need to...
  20. EGR restrictor plates and insurance

    General Alfa Discussion
    Just a heads up for anyone thinking of fitting a restrictor or blanking plate to their Alfa EGR. I fitted one to both my 156 and my Spider then told the insurance companies as it is technically a mod. The Spider company, Swinton, just cancelled my insurance without telling me, leaving a message...
