  1. Wind Deflector Fitting

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi There, I have just purchased a 2001 Spider V6 3.0. I would like to fit a wind deflector and roll over bars for it but there are so many versions. Does anyone have a link to a version that will just "bolt on"? There is a plate on each side of the back tray with two cap screws underneath, is...
  2. Wind deflector for 2001 spider v6 3.0

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Is there a link to purchase a wind deflector that will bolt into the spider without drilling holes? There seems to be different models with slightly different mounting options. I have a small oval blank plate on each side of the back tray near the top which i assume reveals mount holes for the...
  3. ‘Designed in a wind tunnel’

    General Motoring Discussion
    I’m just looking to see if I can find a nice vid of an Audi 200 Quattro to discuss - this car came to mind recently. Anyway, one not so good vid I watched stated that the car was designed in a wind tunnel, which made me chuckle. Why sit in the wind tunnel? It must have been very draughty in...

  5. Wind deflectors........yes or no?

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi Guys, All of the posts on here relating to wind deflectors seem to be at least 10 years old so can we start again please? Thinking of fitting a deflector on my 2001 916 Spider 3.0L V6 24v. Is this a good idea? Has anyone done it and is it relatively easy to do? Can anyone recommend a good...
  6. Cars in wind tunnels - how is the cD measured?

    General Motoring Discussion
    Guys, You have probably all seen pics of cars in wind tunnels, usually with bits of white tape on them. My question. I have a loose under standing of cD, but how is the resistance measured, or how do manufacturers come to the figure? I can understand things like tyre pressure, weights and...

  9. Wind deflectors pre-facelift 156 sedan

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hey, Is there a difference in the sedan and sportwagon versions of wind deflectors for pre-facelift 156's? Also, I don't seem to come across deflectors for the rear windows for the sedan version. Are they available and if not, why? Thanks!
  10. Spider wind defector fluttering

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    At speed the wind deflector on the Spider vibrates or flutters. It looks like its not actually fixed at the bottom. Has anyone else noticed this and found a cure?
  11. Manually wind windows up?

    Alfa MiTo
    My drivers side window won't close, any ideas how to manually close it? The regulator mechanism was replaced a couple of years ago but it sounds like something is stopping it from going up not something electrical. Any ideas? Urgent help needed as I don't have a garage. Cheers.

  15. Wind noise?

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi. I have a small issue with my 2010 Giulietta QV. You can hear a definite wind noise when you are sitting in the front passenger seat (the front right seat, LHD car). It seems to be coming from the side mirror or window area, but it's difficult to tell... It sounds a lot like if then windows...

  18. Wind noise?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Got my new GT yesterday and I'm absolutely loving the car so far, the only issue it has that above 50mph there seems to be excessive amounts of wind noise. Its as if the wind is forcing its way in where the glass meets the seal at the top of the door. Ive looked and cant find any tears or...
  19. Wind Noise

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I have lots of wind noise coming from the front passenger door, on my 5 door LHD pre FL 147. The drivers side is completely quiet. I don't feel any wind coming in on the passenger side, but the noise is there, and even at low speeds (starts around 70km/h). Sounds like a constant flow of air...
  20. Fitting wind defector to Spider S4

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    I recently bought the wind defector from Classic Alfa and was about to try to fit it. However the instructions are slightly ambiguous as there are potentially 2 bolt positions (see attached photo) which the bracket which attaches to the wind deflector can attach to. Should I use the top one or...
