  3. 2.0 T S 16v series 1 in 916s Spider

    Engines (TS, JTS, JTD & V6)
    To sort out this UK 1995/6 engine, I need to read the OBD 3 pin. I have cabled up to an ELM437 but nowhere can I find software, hardware or the protocol to give readings successfully. The engine has failed MOT on very irregular high emissions, has a lumpy idle when cold with timing issues...

    Hello, I have a giulietta 1.6 JTDM 105cv distinctive model. I bought the quadrifoglio giulietta springs and I want to keep the car's standard shock absorbers. Will I have a problem? The reason for changing the springs is to lower the height of the car. Thank you.

    General Alfa Discussion
    I took my 1977 Spider on a Pistonheads run yesterday morning. I was driving with Toyota MR2s, Westfields, Lotus 7s, Vauxhall VRX etc (it was a light rwd car club). I must say that I expected the Spider to get into a tangle if pushed too hard trying to keep up, what with it's 40+ year old...

I have found a drive for it to live on. Not mine which is a bonus,but it will have to live outside. I need a cover for...

    Poll Room
    I'm often a 'late adopter' of TV series. I don't have any paid for TV, and am not good at fitting in with broadcast schedules or remembering/being organised enough to record stuff. I managed not to watch The Sopranos until I was lent a complete box set, which me and the Mrs devoured in some epic...
