  2. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Evening all, quick question, I'm getting my wheels refurbished on Monday, but unsure of which colour to go for. I'm thinking either anthracite or satin black. Would anyone be able to do a quick Photoshop for me just to compare? If it's not too long winded that is! Thanks.
  3. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi, I'm going to be having my 159 Ti wheels refurbed in the next month or so. They are currently silver. I originally wanted to have them powder coated in the same colour as the Prodrive wheels, but the more I think about it, the more I want to perhaps try something different. I'm...

    I have a 2014 QV which has I thing the turbine wheels with the 5 diamond cut strips. now I don't like the look of these and am looking to get repainted in a single solid colour, currently they match the wing mirror but I was thinking of gloss black. The car is I believe Etna black. Has any one...
  5. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I am about to refurb the rear brake calipers and carriers off my 1998 156 V6 (early 251mm discs) but before I splurge £180 with Bigg Red, does anyone have any other suggestions? I don't want to just wire brush them and spray them up, as they will need new pistons and seals etc 100% for sure...

  7. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    When I purchased my 147 the previous owner had painted the alloys in black plastidip. It was ok but was peeling, so I removed it...... What a state the wheels are in. Can see why they were painted. I have booked the car in to have the wheels completely refurbished. It is booked in to a place...
  8. The Classic Alfa Romeos
    The hood on my S4 spider is in very good condition APART from the piping round the edge cracking. Does this mean renewing the whole hood or is there anyone who would replace this. The fabric is like new and the window is decent so it seems a bit wasteful to change the lot

  11. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Simple question this time... Does anyone know of or recommend somewhere that can clean and repaint a pair of 156 Brembo calipers? Calipers are already off and ready to repaint. If anyone has had this done (there must be a few who have), then what did you think of the result? Reputation and word...

    Hi everyone, picked up a 1999 plate Spider at weekend with a hood covered in swirls after the last owner cleaned it with a Karcher! Any idea how to restore the hood, products etc....? Cheers in advance....

    Hi all, My 2012 1.6D Mito, which is close to 60k miles, has started to exhibit symptoms of the bearing failure that is common on the M32 gearbox fitted to it. There is a very loud whine in 5th and 6th with some gearstick movement when coming on and off the accelerator. I once had an issue...

    Have been on the look out for a set to replace the 16" alloys, got offered a set in the uk for £650 but bought a set from Germany for £155, dropped them off in Swindon for refurb yesterday. Whilst there I viewed at gtv 3.0 as a possible project (perhaps where I'll be living when the missus...

    Hi All I have a 159 SW with roof rails which are looking very tired and letting the side down so was looking to get them re-coated, so need to get them off. I'm sure I saw a post on here ages ago with photos showing how to take them off (I believe they can be removed from the top by clipping...
