  1. 115 S4: Substitute Wheels

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    I'd be grateful for some advice, please. I'm not very up on wheels and tyre specs. I have Zender wheels on my S4 which need to be taken off and refurbished. This might, apparently, take some time. I want to use the car in the meantime. I have some old Alfa wheels sitting around in my shed...
  2. Oil substitute for tbi.

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I need to change oil in my 159 tbi. I have difficulties to find the recomended Selenia locally. Does any one know of any other oil that fullfills the specification like mobil, motorex, motul. Agip? Jocke Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  3. Couple of useful substitute parts

    Alfa 33, Sud & Sprint
    For Sprint, 33 and presumably will fit Suds too. Front bump stops Boge part number 89 004 0 are a perfect fit. Think these are for a 145/146 - and is also common to a multitude of BMW's down the years. However the dust covers may not fit - This can be substituted with the steering rack gaiter...
  4. Any suggested Substitute for Dreamweaver

    The Technology Section
    I'm looking for a piece of web development software. Way back in the good old days I used Frontpage. I've also done some work with Dreamweaver, but I'm wondering if there are any good packages out there that are less expensive and will allow me to edit existing sites (ie I don't want to have to...

  6. Apexi Power Intake substitute?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I was hoping to do the induction mod here: Alfa Romeo forum: Installing Apexi air filter into 156 on my 156. Finding an Apexi Power intake in the UK is next to impossible it would seem and I don't really want to start looking in Asia for one (a genuine on at that!) So I was wondering if anyone...
  7. Can I substitute the oil pressure switch for an oil pressure gauge sender?

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I would love to be able to fit an oil pressure gauge to my V6 GTV. I have seen plenty of gauges and senders on ebay and was wondering how to fit the screw-in pressure sender. If I could just inscrew the oil pressure switch (that feeds the pressure light on the dash) and screw in a sender for...
  8. What is proper electrical substitute for removed EGR

    Tuning & Upgrades
    I completely removed EGR valve and EGR cooler from engine bay of my 147 1.9 JTD 8v and on its place connected one resistor of 8.2Ω/20W. Same resistance I measured on EGR solenoid (it has 2-wire connection). FiatECUScan reports "EGR Invalid Signal" error (P0404, not fatal, but appears again and...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi Guys, I a new member here in this interesting forum. Looks like many of you really have experience - not just tire kickers.... Well, I need to know if I without major modifications can fit in a new 2.0 JTS engine into my 156 2.0TS from May 2000. The dealer who sell it claim that this is á...
