    So, when I signed on the dotted line for my QV on PCP (0%) I did it based on 12,000 miles per annum. However, a change in circumstances before I've even got the car means I'm going to be doing 3-4K less than this. The thing is, as I'm planning on buying the car when the 4 years are up I don't...

    Hi guys Can anyone tell me the free length and spring rates for the 156 JTD 20V front springs? The required compression (in cm or mm) for a spring change would be helpful too, I want to check the suitability of a spring compressor I am looking at for future use. Same information for upgraded...

    Yes, yes, yet another tyre thread. Need some 235/40 R19 for the 159, the Bridgestone Potenza RE050A (FZ variant) on there have done a not too shabby 21K. I see lots good reviews for the Uniroyal Rainsport 3, they all start "just fitted and are great" or "had them for 300 miles and are great" -...
  10. Alfa 33, Sud & Sprint
    Hi there, I'm trying to source some replacement springs for me 1988 Alfa Sprint QV. the car is currently on standard springs and to be honest, it's already low enough for me and my days of teeth loosening stiffened springs are long gone. Therefore I'm thinking of having someone like 'Tested...
  11. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Can anyone advise spring rates for a GTV V6 for racing. I have installed Koni Sport shocks and Eibach Pro Kit 1018 140E that have spring rates of; Front 23 N/mm (131 lb/in); Rear Progressive 40/59 Nm/mm (228/337 lb/in). These springs are much too soft for racing. Can anyone advise.

    Hi all. Long time since last post! Last 156 was sold around a year ago, but now have purchased a 2005 156 1.9JTDm saloon for the wife. Happy with it so far and have just swapped out the multi hole standard 15" wheels for 17" Alfa GT wheels. Looks sweet on them :) But main reason for posting is...
