  1. General Alfa Discussion
    So I have a 2003 pre-facelift red 156 SW 2.4 JTD with limo tints, which I thought was smart on Teledials. However, a set of Supersports from my local Alfa specialist, and my car is transformed. I've had so many good comments about the car, it has amazed me. The fact that I also gave her a...
  2. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Got my 2003 GTV 2.0 Lusso back from Autolusso (Dorset) last week and they have done wonders! They had it for a couple of days last month too and what was a sluggish, unresponsive, back-breaker of a car going in, has been transformed, or rather restored, into the gorgeous, responsive, pokey ride...
  3. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Yesterday I had a bit of work done on the car at Monza Sport. They changed the worn out NSF lower swing arm and the OSF upper wish bone, did 4 wheel tracking and replaced the front pads. Today the car feels like new again, tighter, the steering more accurate and of course the rattle and clank...
  4. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Many threads have been the subject of how to restore tired phase 1 centre consoles. On the whole, most appear to remove the rubber covering and then paint in a colour of their choice. Normally Silver! But...there is another solution........Flocking! I have just recieved back my centre console...
  5. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Well I've owned my Brera for approximately six weeks and it's the first diesel i've ever owned. I desperatly wanted to love the driveability of my Brera but found the characteristics of the engine stopped the car driving as well as you would expect a car like the Brera to drive. The flat spots...
  6. Tuning & Upgrades
    Just to say that I bought a Spider 2.2 and after driving other Alfas,BMWs and Lotus's it seemed a bit lacking in response and positive handling. I immediately had a MOD 4 conversion and pedal power added which made an enormous difference to sound and throttle response.The car also suffers from...
  7. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    i had suspected it was knackered for a while and finally got a chance to have a look at the weekend and it wias pretty badly fubar.. As a temporary bodge I filled the gaps in the bush with silicon sealant, and let it set overnight.. Much stiffer, but still some degree of movement.. However the...
  8. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I have just finished fitting new front wishbones to my GTV and the handling has been transformed. It has gone from being a heavy feeling barge that didn't inspire much confidence to being agile and nimble, and it no longer clonks over the bumps. One wishbone didn't look too bad (Although as I...
  9. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    So... (this is a bit of a long winded thread so bear with me I do get to the point) I now have a new(to me, one caring previous owner) gearbox, new clutch new selector fork for 3rd gear and after a few days of pootling about I finally got a dry day this afternoon. A bit of history is that...
