    Any comments regarding this product I found on ebay? Has anyone used one? Wast of money? Better off getting a respray of front end every 5 or so years? Would love to hear your thoughts. Cheers JAMES

    Does anyone know where you buy please? I saw a 159 with these and they were far too tidy for self cut. Giulietta is starting to mark from having no front mudflaps.Such a shame they're not produced. Ta!

  8. Headlight Protective Film - What Colour?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, I'm going to get Lamin-X protective film for my GTA headlights; the question is "What Colour"? The car is Brilliant Blue and they do a blue tint - tempting, or a light smoked - already have this on the Red 20v SW, or clear just to preserve the lights. The film works really well, I replaced...
  9. Protective plastic film for paintwork

    My Alfa has quite a few pin head paint chips caused by a previous owner thinking it was a good idea to drive at speed on gravel. I want to get it resprayed and my brother mentioned a friend of his had had his car bonnet resprayed and then covered with some sort of plastic film to protect the...

    Car Detailing
    My recently bought 159 has protective film applied infront of the rear arches - the car is 3.5 years, and I for some reason think the film does the car's appearance no favours. - Can this be removed? - is it easy / how ?
  11. Protective Bonnet Film

    Alfa 164 & 166
    I am looking for a discreet film or strip to run the width of my bonnet to just above the grill to prevent further stone damage. Having seen some of the 'bonnet bras' I have concluded they are foul and so are looking for a tidier option. Any ideas? Thanks.
  12. Protective films for door handle wells

    Anyone knows where I can get them? I really hate to see them scratched badly and like on my previous car... My fiancee has very long nails, so you know... :lol: I've asked my dealer and he said no, there aren't any officially. So maybe someone knows where to get some unofficial? :)
  13. Guard-X Protective Treatment

    Car Detailing
    My new Mito was due to be delivered last week, but the dealership managed to 'lose' it and have now told me it won't be with them until the end of the week. As a gesture to say sorry the dealership manager informed me he would have it treated with the protective coating. Now call me synical...
  14. Alfa 147:Water in the computer because it wasn't in its protective bag?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Have had a lovely Alfa Romeo 147 2.0 late 2002 model for 3 years with no problems! Unfortunately the cambelt went which required an engine rebuild. Two weeks after the rebuild started getting funny messages on the dashboard about fuel injection problems. Couldn't get it sorted before going on...
  15. 156 headlights - protective film?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    My MOT was due at the weekend (passed, BTW :) ) so I was cleaning up the car on Saturday morning. There was a lot of flies still on there from my German trip at the beginning of May, so I got the power washer out to get rid of them from the headlights & grille. As I was jetting the...

    To repeat a note I made in another section, ................did you find metal and plastic grills on the supply side of the MAF, and were these removed during the install of you new intake? I should be honest from the outset and let you know that I am a cheap upgrade fanatic, espacially...
  19. Alfa GT side panel protective strips

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Has anyone bought the protective strips for the side panels on the GT (they're in the Linea accessories catalogue)? Are they colour coded? Do they affect the look of the car much? Anyone know how much they cost? I've already got a dent in the drivers door from some careless s*d opening their...
  20. protective door strips

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    The previous owner of my alfa 147 put some protective strips down the side of the car. I have finally come to the conclusion after 4 weeks that i want to remove them. They dont look bad but somehow they spoil the look of the car. What do you guys reckon, shall i take them off risking dents or...
