    Hi guys, I'm having a beautiful Alfa Romeo GT Rosso, with a terrible gear knob... srsly, it looks like someone chew it and spit it oout... I was looking into options to get it replaced, but couldn't find anything that would fit it, other than the original (silver) knob which I don't want to...

    Just looking for general opinions on driving gloves for long drives - given that I have a wooden steering wheel and gear knob, I found on hot days the wheel is scalding to my sensitive hands or on long drives the grip levels reduce significantly as my hands perspire causing a bit of slippage...

    Hi guys! I've a 2001 2.5 v6 cf3 166. It has black leather steering, black leather knob with the usual fake aluminium dash. I quite like the wood interior combo, steering/dash/knob, but it seems dificult to find one. I'm willing to buy/exchange one! Please note my car is LHD, and I think...

    Hi All, I would like to share with you little project that have my friend done to his GT. As a christmas present I got him wooden steering wheel but suddenly we realized it has different shaped buttons-base than normal one.

    What do we all think about this? I think it looks very stylish, gives the Spider a retro look.:yes: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/alfa-romeo-spider-916-2-litre-twin-spark-liquid-diped-mat-red-silver-metalic-/272149969569?hash=item3f5d66faa1:g:yBIAAOSwDuJW00F~

  12. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I've just purchased a very nice 'P' reg P1 lots of history with only 52k on the clock. Before I use it, it will have a new cam belt as the old one is time expired. One thing which it has got (which I don't like) is wooden trim on the centre console, around the gear shift, fuel opening switch...

    As per title, I have a leather multifunction 156 steering wheel, but I really prefer the wooden version which was an option I understand. So if anyone knows of one, or has a spare one, could they PM me. TIA
  15. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all. Have decided to sell my 156 T Spark, and get a V6. So I test drove one yesterday, the car has been stood a while, but the brakes felt very wooden, and required a huge heave to get any arrestation (could be a made up word, but you get the idea) at all. Does this sound like a servo...
  16. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, i recently came across an old brochure for the 156 where a wooden steering wheel / gear stick combo was seen in the pictures, but on a facelift interior one! This is definitely something my 156 needs! have been looking on ebay for one but can't find anything... Anyone got any more...
  17. Alfa 147, 156 & GT

  19. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi all Had the GTV serviced at Jamie Porter and he replaced the rear discs and pads but the brakes still feel wooden and not very responsive - have to push pedal hard for a response and feels wooden. 3 Questions: 1. Would the fluid have been replaced when the rear brakes were done? if not any...
