  1. Does a standard 147 rear caliper for 276mm brakes fit on a GTA

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi guys, does anyone know the difference between the Lucas rear calipers for the standard 147 with 276mm discs and the ones fitted to a gta? they have different part numbers but they use the same pads and discs, I really need a caliper but I can't find the ones that are allegedly specifically...
  2. 3.0 Spider Clutch and Flywheel - Standard or Solid Flywheel?

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I've been quoted ÂŁ532 INC Vat for a standard clutch (release b, pressure plate and disc) which seems very fair. What do people think, go for a solid flywheel upgrade? Dual Mass is something like 14KG and a solid one about 8.5 I've read. Then there is the Q2/Quaife diff option too.... Dual...
  3. Is VDC standard on the 147?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello, I just had a question pop into my head. My engine is the 140BHP 1.9JTD M-Jet, year 2003. It's quite the poverty spec unfortunately, manual climate control, no cruise nor even power windows at the rear. It is what is it, but I wonder - does it have VDC (ESP)? It's got ASR for sure as I...

  5. Which model has these seats as standard

    Alfa Giulietta
    Came across a 2016 Speciale with these nice looking seats. Looks like from a QV but this was a 1.4 MAir. Other Speciale for sale didn't have these seats. Anyone sat in them, as good as they look? I like Alcantara more than cloth or full body leather 🙂
  6. Standard QV steering wheel wear

    Alfa Giulia
    Has anybody else experienced excess wear on the non carbon-fibre QV leather sports wheel? I had something similar on my 159 Ti albeit after about five years versus less than two. I'm considering raising this under warranty while it lasts. Excuse the leg!
  7. Giulia Veloce standard wheel colour

    Alfa Giulia
    Hi all, I have a small chip on my wheel which doesn't warrant the wheel to be refurbished. I was planning to but a touch up pen to hide it (a bit). Does anyone know the colour name or code? I am sure a close match will do as well. Hope to hear from you soon.
  8. Best springs for standard ride height (147 GTA)

    Alfa GTA
    Eeee, I must be getting old! I think it's time to go back to standard ride height but not sure which springs to go for - can you even get different springs for standard ride height or is it Alfa only? Currently I have Bilstein B6 Sport + 30mm lowering springs but getting sick of hitting the...
  9. Needed 33 16V Timing Cover & Standard Pistons ?!

    Alfa 33, Sud & Sprint
    Good Afternoon, After buying a 1/2 broken engine due to timing belt slip, I need to replace the pistons (at least I think) as they are battered by the valves on the right side by the exhaust valves. Anyone have a set ? Dont wish to rebore. And A timing belt Cover as it doesnt have one and I...
  10. Uprated springs with standard shocks?

    Alfa 145 & 146
    Can i do this???? I don't want the ride to be rock hard. I've got a '98 145 1.8TS, which i think sits a tad too high & could do with stiffening up to reduce body roll. Budget wont alloy for complete kit, though i've noticed that alot of companies just seem to advertise the springs by themselves.
  11. my 147s standard stereo speakers seem to be improving with time

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello there people, I have to say that initially i was disappointed with the standard speakers in my new 147 (Connect +). But, after initial distortion on low bass kicks, they seem to have got a lot better. Has anyone else noticed this. I am a professional musician, but was unable to get the...
  12. "Standard" equipment

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello all, Just got my new 147 2.0 manual here in Sweden earlier this week, and I love it, except for trying for figure out the cryptic CD player commands/settings. Anyway, I have a question: the steering wheel on my car doesn't have the remote control buttons for the stereo. Is this...
  13. 147 Anti-theft alarm standard?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    In the manual I read that almost all 147's have an alarm fitted from factory. Looks like here in NL they don't. :( Anybody knows more about this (perhaps a trick to activate the system because it maybe installed anyway :cool: )?
