Just thought you might like to see a piccy or two of the rolling road meet today at Alwyn Kershaw's in York.

The first car on the top foto is my V6 WIDEbody wink

Didn't take too long to get 14 cars on the rollers, enough time to get to the pub for a pint anyway :D 20 cars turned out on the day including 2 145's and a Primera!!!

hey wrinx.. well the grille looked a bit strange at first so i wondered if it were the narrow body grille. but then after seeing some other photos i realized it was the normal wide body grille. the narrow body doesnt have the plastic surrounds, does it? :eek:

btw, about that blue 155, does he have intakes on the side? and on the bonnet? eek!

oh, and another thing, a PRIMERA!? eek!

wink

There are two differences for the fronts of 155's (apart from different sized bumpers and the wings). Early cars had the plastic grill flush with the Alfa shield and all the later cars have a recessed grill. Trouble is there are skinny cars fitted with both. Anything up to about 1993/4 can have both. Best way to tell is that later cars have a chrome shield, earlier ones have a body coloured version.............but then some owners colour code theirs!!!!

Perhaps I could suggest you check out the 155 forum for a bit of homework for your next assignment wink :D

I've just written a 5,000 word article about them and it still doesn't make sense!!!

LOL :D I've just stopped messing about with the new AROC155Register website and then checked here first, then went over to 155.com and spotted your post...........welcome wink

I'm starting a 155 register for the AROC, when the article is published sometime in June I'm hoping to put it on the 155.com website....sorry, no "Spidey" style previews wink

from 1st to 4th! :confused:

Yes I am pleased with 120 Bhp, but others were even more surprised :D good and bad I suppose!

I'd guess that you start in 1st so that you can get the wheels rolling, but 4th is best to test it, because you can build the revs more gradually so get a more detailed and accurate graph.
I've never had a rolling road done, so this is just attempted logic. Am I right? Do I win a prize? :D :D

why 1st to fourth?</strong><hr /></blockquote><font size="1" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">Is it because fourth is (or is very close to) a 1:1 gear ratio i.e. direct drive??
:confused:

Please don't tell me I was completely wrong. :(
I was really proud of my little theory.
