  5. Towing with a Guilia

    Alfa Giulia
    Sacrilege I know, but if I order a Guilia I will need to tow with it occasionally. Has anybody looked into this, what is the cost of the factory towbar, do they cut much out of the bumper?. I'd probably go for a Veloce, which I think has slightly different bumpers doesn't it?.

  13. Q4 Towing & MOT Brake Testing

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi all, I was wondering if there is a risk of causing damage to the transmission when towing the Q4 version? I know that Lancia Delta Integrales can't be towed using a spectacle type lift on the front wheels as the diffs are damaged. Does this apply to the Q4? And, if it does can you put the car...

  19. Can a 156 Q4 trailer a 156 ?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    So, say you were completely mad about 156s and wanted a 156 Q4 as your daily driver, and had a 156 GTA that you wanted to use as a trackday car, can you trailer the GTA behind the 156 Q4 ? I know the towing vehicle should be heavier than the trailer+cargo. The GTA would probably not have the...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Took the Brera and van to Spain for the winter. Towed well apart from the following :- despite being a 6 speed box ( Qtronic) the ratios are actually quite wide.
