  4. Seat to be rebranded as Cupra

    General Motoring Discussion
    Seat was aimed at becoming the VW version of Alfa. A Latin mainstream brand . And it failed. It’s like the other Skoda. But they had a sporty badged version of some of its cars; Cupra. Now that is on some Seat cars instead of the Seat badge. It’s a brand. What...

  15. 166 - Seat height adjustment stuck, possibly seized

    Alfa 164 & 166
    Has anyone come across this before? The lever on the side of the seats that is supposed to lift them up or lower them down is completely stuck on bother driver's and passenger's sides.
