  1. Audio profile continually updating

    Alfa Giulia
    Is there any way to reset the infotainment system? Switching off the engine and coming back a couple of hours later hasn't changed this... I can no longer switch between Bluetooth audio devices. Selecting to connect to an existing paired device just results in an "updating..." message, which...

    Just about to order myself a jack and some stands so I can do the basic stuff, just wondering how much room there is under there to maneuver? Worth getting a low profile trolley jack? Standard size? Short wheel base? Or would a compact bottle jack be ok? I've found the pics showing where to...

  6. Winter tyre profile

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Morning all! So I've bought 2x 235/45/19 winter tyres and I plan to put these on the front of my car, 1.9 ti. My question is will I be ok to leave the 235/40/19 on the back given the difference in profile? I was only planning to put winters on the front and these winters that I've bought...
  7. Alfa GT - High Profile Tyres

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Sacrilege maybe, but given that the roads where I live are peppered with poor tarmac, I think it would vastly improve the handling of my ol' GT, even if they are a bit more expensive than the traditional 215/45/R17's. The thing I'm perhaps confused about is whether or not they'll fit or I'll...

  9. Lower profile tyres

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    The standard tyres on the 19" Ti wheels are a bit chunky in my opinion Has anyone fitted lower profile tyres? I know this will increase road noise and the likelyhood of crippling the car thanks to the lack of effort from the local council fixing the roads, and also scraping over speedbumps even...
  10. Lower profile tyres for the 18inch wheels

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Does anyone think the standard profile tyres are very thick? Has anyone changed to a lower profile? The standard profile almost makes the wheel look smaller than it is. P

  12. Please help!! 1.7 8V twin carb cam profile timing

    Alfa 33, Sud & Sprint
    I have searched high and low, but haven't been able to find the standard cam profiles for the 1.7 8V twin carb motor. The reason I want to know is because I want a basis to go from to choose a high performance street cam. I've measure (roughly) my lift which is about 10.3 mm, and from what I can...

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi Guys, Not sure about this, i've got 18'' x 225 x 40's on the car at the moment, has anyone tried a high profile? Just to curb out some vibration's on the shite roads, I would like 50mm but not sure if it will rub or not!
  14. Low profile Tyres on the BRera

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    HI, has anyone on here ever put lower profile tires on the brera before? I've been looking at the tires on the brera and i have been wanting to go lower on the profile, as it seems a little chunky. I'm not asking for any replies saying "Why would you want to do that!?", just any helpful...

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi folks, I will be shortly lowering the Spider on eibach -25mm with new shocks too. Im also going to have my 17" wheels refurbed with new tyres. I currently run 215/45/17, with standard springs these have been fine, although they have never rubbed, I wouldnt exactly say there is a lot of...

I washed my 147 today and have just been to the garage to fill up, in the queue to pay I glanced back to the car sitting under the canopy lights of the garage looking straight down the front and thought, thats a nice looking car, xxxx...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Does anyone know the correct size for tyres on the 19" Brera S wheels? I went to look at one last week and it had 35 profile but i'm sure on others i've seen its 40
  18. Low profile trolley jack

    Alfa GTA
    Anyone on here got a low profile trolley jack that will go under the bodykit of the 156 GTA? I'm looking for recommendations, primary requirement is low cost, as it's rarely used. My existing jack requires me to drive the car up onto 3 pieces of wood to lift it up 40mm to clear the jack...

    Hello I have been wondering about lowering the tyre profile on my mito when it comes to changing the tyres. the lusso comes with a nice set of bridgestones as standard - with 55 width - but it does look a bit jumbo -could lower profile tyres be fitted easily? 16 inch tyres on a small car...
  20. Brera tyre profile

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi all. Time to look at a new set of rubber for my 2.4 Brera. The tyres must have been rotated by the previous owner as they have similar wear, and so I will be replacing all 4. Looking at prices, it seems that the OE size of 235 17 50 has less choice and is more expensive than 235 17 45. Any...
