    Hi, As post title says, I'm planning to do swap my standard crappy blue and me controlled head unit that now only talks to me in Italian for the Alpine double din unit found in the newer 2018 models. I'm going for the Alpine unit as it's an OEM part on the newer models I can retain my...
  3. Alfa Giulietta
    Hi, I am planning to buy a Giulietta 1.4 TCT 2012 in the coming month. Now I wanted to know what the possibilities are when upgrading the infotainment system. Is it possible to reuse the screen on top with a new unit with upgraded features( does this exist?? ) or when I replace the headunit with...

    Hello, I’m looking for an induction upgrade for my mito I can see see air filter are widely available but I was looking into more intake manifold upgrades. What are my choices? I can’t seem to find any.
  5. Alfa MiTo
    Hi All, I'm very new to the alfa owners club and loving every moment so far. One thing that bugs me is the lack of decent bluetooth support in the older MiTo models (I currently own a 2009 one). I have though found a newer MiTo radio which supports bluetooth connectivity (I have a Pixel and...

    Hey guys, I would like to change the Alfa Romeo logo badge on the car to the new one like the newest Alfa Romeo's because I think the one I have looks a little dated but still isn't too bad as it's very similar. Looking for any advice how to do this? Anyone done it already? How do they come...

    Gtv 3.2 I have upgraded fronts to 330s, are there any upgrades for the rears? And if so does it make a difference and how will it impact on the balance between front and rear eg will the rears lock up due to system unbalanced?
  8. Tuning & Upgrades
    Hi! If anyone has plans on upgrading an intercooler to 156 20v mjet I seriously recommend to think twice.. especially if you want to keep your fog lights and head light washers(if xenon). When I started the project I really didn't know what Im involving to. But I know there are some other...

    Hello there I wonder if anyone might have some thoughts on this idea I have... I have soldered all my Airbag yellow connectors, under the seat, the B pillars and C pillars at the back. My car is 3 door so I think the cause may be moving the seat or possibly helping other cars with flat...

    Hi guys, long time lurker, but new 147 owner. :) 1.9 8v, pre-facelift. I have been reading around on what it takes to have a good handling 147. As the car did not cost all that much to me, I do not really want to spend it's price again on suspension.. But I still would like to have a good...

    I'm an ex BMW man and quite often with BM's you could fit the brakes from a bigger or sportier model as a 'breakers yard upgrade'. I have a heavy right foot and wouldn't mind a little extra braking power but given that I only paid £600 for the car, I won't be buying this Brembo upgrade kit at...
  15. Tuning & Upgrades
    Hi. I have readed that someone upgraded the Fuel Pressure Pump in front of the Rail on an Alfa 1,75 TBI to an more stronger one. Did someone know something about? I want to install it on the 200HP one, and not on 4C they did. OR do someone if we could mod the Giulia 2.0TBI one on the Old...

    Hello there forumgoers, My petrol 1.4 16V 95hp Mito is due an exhaust replacement as the old one is rotten. I would like a mid silencer delete and a twin exit back box. Would I be able to fit the system from a 155TB or 170hp Cloverleaf, or are those exhaust systems different in more ways that...
  17. Alfa Giulietta
    Although the brakes on the QV are very good has anyone upgraded the discs to drilled rather than the normal discs? Is there any difference if anyone has done it?
