    I started to remove the headlining to address a small dent in the roof. I butchered the small grey coloured plugs, 3 of them, I suspect I should had used a special tool for the job instead of pliers! Can these plugs still be purchased from Alfa Romeo? Or where else could I get some? Any...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi everyone, Had a glow plug warning come up on the dash so picked up a new one from Alfa specialist, but there was some confusion as to what should be fitted in the 210 hp Ti engine.
