    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Vredestein Ultrac Sessanta tyres anyone? Has anyone tried these tyres - especially on the Brera or 159? They seem to get good reviews from mags and tyre test sites but never come across them myself. At nearly £70 a corner cheaper than P-Zeros etc. thought they looked rather good. This Extra...

    Introduce Yourself
    Hi Everybody, I have 2 questions, 1, the inside of my front tyres were worn down to the walls (horror) whilst the outside and contact face still had about 4/5mm left, why? I do not drive fast, was this caused by the rampant introduction of speed cushions and tables (there are plenty where I...
  4. Two Types Of Q2 Diff?!?!

    General Alfa Discussion
    I was talking to the guy at my local indie this afternoon and he was telling me that there are two types of Q2 diff, one that locks and one that doesn't. Now this may not be news to some but it certainly was to me. Does this mean Alfa are selling Q2 badged cars with and without the locking...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Sorry if this has been asked before. I can't seem to get the hang of the search feature. I can search using only 1 or 2 key words but still not find a thread that I know I read only a few weeks before. I've just had my car serviced and just spotted on the receipt that they have used 5w 40...

  11. Changing Oil types Any additive needed ?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi Guys, After much thought and talk with you guys on AO I have decided as you may or may not know to change from Selenia Racing 10w-60 to Castrol 10w-60 Rs formulation. But before I change to Castrol, after the Selenia Oil is drained do I need to add anything to clear out the engine oil...
