  1. General Alfa Discussion
    Hi, I am having trouble sourcing some parts, especially fasteners. I also see that there is an enormous amount of quality producers of automotive fasteners out their that produce multiple products that seem to match alfa part numbers. So i would like to match these 3rd party fasteners to...
  2. Alfa Giulia
    I take it when you configure your car at the dealership you have to live with any specification changes made at the factory before you get your car? Reason I'm asking is I've ordered a Super and at the time it came with fog lights which seem to have disappeared from the UK configurator.
  3. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Afternoon All, Not that I'm a pessimist but.....I don't have a tow eye bolt. Missing when I bought the car (there is a long list of defects this is a minor one...) Whilst ebay has listings for generic eye bolts I have no clue how long an original one is or anything about it. In fact I still...
  4. Alfa Giulietta
    Just looking at the new Giulietta handbook and Alfa have changed the oil specification for the Multiair engine: Looks like it's low friction to aid economy.
  5. General Alfa Discussion
    Greetings All, My Giulietta 2012 TB 1.4 has now been with me a couple of months and I am delighted with it! I want to buy a few mechanical parts for it and need the specification for my car. Is there a way to get it from the VIN number? For example brakes, there seems to be a lot of different...
  6. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I bought some aftermarket slider pin kits for the rear brakes on our 03MY 147 GTA. What arrived was 75 x 8mm P/No: BCF1346D but they are way too thin, equal length and fit like a Wizard's sleeve... the correct ones are asymmetric in length and 10mm diameter. The caliper isn't marked Alfa...
  7. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Can anyone itemise what changes were introduced for the MY08 Brera with any links to resources. I found this link with the specifications described, but it does not quite clarify when the mechanical changes were introduced. Was it in late 2007 when the 210BHP performance increase came, or was...
  8. Tuning & Upgrades
    Hi all I am new to this forum so I hope I am not going over old ground here. I would like help to really understand the operation of IDF fitted to many Alfas, Porsches, VWs and other applications so that others do not have the problems I have had getting these carbs working. In fact I think...
  9. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I've been looking at ads for some of these models. I thought that they all had the Q2 diff and 170BHP, but some ads say the spec is 150BHP and some say 170BHP - none mention the limited-slip diff. Model years have been primarily 2008 and newer that i've looked at. can anyone shed some light on...
  10. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi I'm Becks and have just registered to this site tonight as I am hoping to purchase an Alfa Romeo 147;) I have my eye on a particular one at present but unfortunately just a mechanical concern I feel I should check out before I end up taking it to the mechanics more than driving it for my own...
  11. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Wasnt able to find the right thread to answer my questions so either its outrageously expensive to do OR its just easier to buy a Veloce to begin with :lol: I have a 2004 2 litre 156 JTS Lusso, it was advertised as a Veloce 1 but i wont get into that. I want to start pricing up where to get the...
  12. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Im swaping my exhaust heatshield in the engine bay for one less cracked and chewed up. Can someone tell me the diameter, thread measurement and length of suitable bolts. Alternatively post a link to some suitable bolts at homebase or similar. Thanks
  13. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi all, Search function isn't getting me quite where I want to be. I'm doing / have done a deal on a 159 Ti at the moment but wanted to check what the standard spec was for the 2008 Ti (if any). E.g. are the seats electrically adjustable on all the Ti cars? Driver only? Cheers. :thumbs:

    :cry: High all. I have recently purchased a CAT C accident damaged 156 2.4 JTD 10V Sportswagon which I have repaired. The car was registered on June 2002. I have no hand book etc. I have phoned 4 main dealers in the UK so I can find out the BHP of the car and the model. All they have come up...

    Is there anywhere on this site or other that lists the specification history. I am thinking in particular of when facelifts occur and the improvements/changes that are made to specifications. Thanks Steven
