    As with many 159’s and Brera’s they suffer with ugly pitted or paint loss on the slam panels, here is my quick fix using some Blue Peter sticky back plastic!! The odd other spots I can paint.

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. only a mother would think an ugly baby is beautiful. Same goes for anything I guess, cars included. What someone thinks is simply gorgeous, someone else will think its a munter. So whats your very expensive munter of a car? I'll start: Simply huge money...

    Hello there! So in the photo displayed are one of the two boxy wedge things that sit under the sill in front of the rear wheels. Not the most aerodynamic bit of the car. I was wondering if anyone has removed them or modified them? I'm thinking of trimming it perhaps; Keeping the plastic...

    I shall try not to blame the VAG totaly for this but I feel I may fail :lol: DRLs, I personaly think they are the ugliest looking bit of bling ever fitted to any car. IMHO i hate that all the other vehicle manufacturers have jumped on this band wagon. I can see the safety aspect but lord they...

    Hello, I'm looking for a local garage. I found Alfa Aid on another thread but the couple of mentions I found were pretty old. Has anyone got some upto date reviews of this place? Are they good honest guys who do a good job and charge a fair price? (The dream combination I know!) Russell
