  1. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello, I own an alfa 147 and I am about to do the piston rings on it as it is eating a bit of oil. I am contemplating giving the head a port and polish as this will help with a bit of power I hope. What I am asking is has anyone done it or do they know for sure that it would benefit the engine's...
  2. Car Detailing
    I'm no detailer but having bought a very stone chipped black 147 last week decided to give it a going over with some snake oil, the snake oil in question was Sonax 1837551 and have to say I was pretty impressed, if you use the wax crayon and well soaked micro fibre together it certainly hides a...

    Hi all - santa got me a DA for xmas and i finally got round to using it a couple of days ago - I'm using Meg's ultimate compound, polish and wax, my car is a 75 spider with paint that was done at least 15 years ago, its blooming so I thought i'd have a go at cutting it back. The compound works...
  6. Car Detailing
    Hi So as the title says I'm looking for the best products and methods for dealing with superficial marks and scratches to the silver body of my GTV. It's not something I've bothered with much on past cars but I want to make an effort with this one. I'm wary of using T cut because I've heard...
  7. Car Detailing
    had my wheels powder coated 2 years ago, however i have always thought if i could get some cutting compound into the wheels it would enhance the shine i have from the laquer, I dont think i can get the same effect from just hand polishing does anyone have experience as to whats possible to...
  8. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Afternoon all, I had a full respray done on my Cup back in July & it was polished up nicely. I'm now looking at giving it another polish & shine. Any recommendations? I don't want to pay out too much on the polish if I can avoid it. Is there any advice on how often the body work should be...
  9. Car Detailing
    I'm looking to get rid of the swirls and a few light scratches on my 159, been looking at all the different polishes and not 100% which would be best to go for. I have access to a cheap rotary polisher and also a DA. Folks who have done a 159, what did you go for polish wise? Thanks

  11. Car Detailing
    My car has gotten pretty scratched up. I may have an enemy scratching my car when I'm not looking, or, more realistically, it's caused by the branches and rocks flying all over the place, since I pop to the countryside a few times a month. I have never done anything of the sort. I have never...
  12. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Ive just bought one from eBay. Bugger me if it doesnt fit (at all) - the mounting points on the car either seem to be missing or miles and miles out. Am I missing something here, or have a I bought a useless £50 garage ornament! :jester: People who have fitted one - help please! :)

    I have a 2013 white Giulietta and my wife has a 2013 light blue Beetle. What brands do you guys recommend in respect of polish, glaze, wax, clay bar etc.
  14. Car Detailing
    Just wondering if there's a polish that'll make the 156 sparkle? I've partially polished (roof, bonnet and wings) the car using Turtle Wax liquid. It looks good, but being 14 years old the bodywork could do with a buffing, but I'm not spending hundred quid or so on a electric 'duel action'...
  15. Car Detailing
    Gave my GT a clean and well deserved cut and polish with the DA. Pleased with the results :)
  16. South Africa
    Has anyone seen this thread from 2007 before? Alfa Romeo forum: Burned GTA - stage 2 supercharged A very detailed tale of a rebuild of a burned-out 156 GTA SW. Much kudos to those guys for taking on that job!
  17. Car Detailing
    What a long day that was. Seeing as its fathers day, I used it as an excuse to spend my well deserved time off to sort the car out with a good clean. After a wash, I used a compound, a polis, then a glaze and finally a wax. Only step missing was a seal after. I used all meguiars products start...
  18. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi there, The lovely chromed intake things (I guess) on my newly bought GT 3,2 are a bit rusty in the bottom. Can I polish them with some "Autosol" chrome paste or what should I do - apart from just living with it?
  19. Car Detailing
    Hi All, My Alfa Red MiTo is now 4 years old, and is starting to show signs of her age in the form of swirl marks! I give her a good polish with Autoglym stuff every so often (SRP and EGP), but I think it's time I gave her some decent treatment, so I've invested in a dual action polisher (a...

    On the back of Chris picking up the award "best modern coupe" at the Scottish Italian Car day Chris has came up with a cracking event idea to enable everyone to sample some of the magic potion used on the day. The sole supplier of Autobrite products has kindly agreed to have his premises...
