No play or vibration when bolts tight.
Thinking about it owned car 9 months and wheel never taken before hub change. Was on REALLY tight.Jumping on a breaker bar didn’t...
Hi, I have searched already to no avail...
Does anyone have a wiring diagram for the Bose set up on a Brera / 159? There seem to be diagrams posted by friendly helpful people for the 147 / GT set up but not the former.
I'm looking at upgrading my head unit and speakers, but retaining the...
