    Hi All, This is my first post so be gentle, even though this is my second alfa I think i just got lucky the first time. I own a 57 plate spider and have only had it for 2 months, but it seems to have developed a problem with the roof. I've looked at other forum posts which have been very...

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Hello, I need some help in restoring my 1986 Veloce in Northern Michigan. I can buy parts like floor pans, but have not found any shop around here (Traverse City area) who could torch out the old floor pans and weld new pans and fender skirts. Car runs fine.

  9. PH3 Spider 2.0TS front shocks needed

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi All, Well, I was doing so well. Removed the front shocks from one side. Turret bolts came out without shearing. Spring compressed without tears. It wasn't too dreadful. However the new ones I had ready to fit are the Ph1/2 type with no bolt plate fitted for the PH3 anti roll bar links to...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hope it's okay to post this here, as there doesn't seem to be an appropriate heading for this model in the technical advice forum. I'm thinking of buying a 2008 JTS Spider (the 1997 916 finally needs to find an owner that has the skills to look after it better!) from a reputable dealer, but the...

  18. Spider S4 not starting

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Hi, I have a 1990 S4 Spider that won't start. The engine cranks but won't fire, the battery seems to be ok and is charged, I've checked the fuel pump relay and the spark plugs seem to be wet from trying to start, so fuel seems to be reaching them. Any assistance appreciated.
