    Hello. When my Launch Edition TCT is sat with the engine running in Park mode, on a slight down incline or hill, should the vehicle still roll or should it act as a parking brake (using the diff I think) and not move at all? When sat at traffic lights on a slight downhill for example, when in...

    Hello. I see that many of you have replaced the standard arb of some TS with the arb from a Fiat coupé 20V thats is 23 or 24 mm. Is it possible to install them on a v6 with older droplinks type ? Is it possible to upgrade to 156 v6 or gta front arb as well ? Thanks !

    As some of you might know, the forum is no more. We knew that the site was going down for a while (lack of traffic) so I took the opportunity to save some of my (hopefully) useful threads. I initially posted this July 2012 and subsequently updated the thread to include a guide on...

    Hi, just had my MOT done and told the mechanic it sounded like the exhaust was loose at the back somewhere as I can hear (and feel) it rapidly vibrating when driving, especially when pulling away. I expected that it needed new rubbers, however when the car was up on a lift, the mechanic invited...

    Has anyone replaced the rubber bushes on the front anti roll bar? I've just removed the front anti roll bar and although the Eper drawing shows each of the clamps as an upper and lower part, mine are joined together very well indeed and don't want to come apart. So the clamps with the rubber...

    Next job on the horizon.... Hope it will sort out the rattle from the front end. Went for Mayle HD ones via ebay. Worked out much cheaper than euro car parts wanted. They do indeed look to be good quality and pretty heavy duty. Some photos attached.

    Hi All Have I got this right? The Twinspark front anti roll bar if fitted to a V6 is an upgrade as it is thicker. To upgrade a Twinspark you can fit one off a Fiat Coupe as it thicker If I fit a Fiat Coupe anti roll bar to my V6 is that a better upgrade than the Twinspark one or would I be...

  16. Alfa Giulietta
    Hi, does anyone know if the front anti roll bar bushes (2012 Giulietta Veloce) are a separate item? Or do I have to replace the whole front bar? My mechanic seems to think that the latter might be the case? Either way can someone suggest a tame main dealer that I could go to as I’ll have to have...

    Hi all, upgraded the roll bars on my GTA, so the OEM ones are available if anyone wants them as an upgrade. They're in decent condition. Not sure what they're worth, so please send me an offer. Cheers

    I decided to upgrade Anti roll bars while i had subframes off but pocket cant reach to the eibach type so went Gta versions , not sure if 22mm to 23mm will do much but better then nothing the rear should be a lot better upgrade 14mm to 17mm.
