This may or may not be a stupid question, but here it goes, is it actually possible to fit the popular Q2 to the gm/alfa hybrid cars like the 2.2?
Can't tell about the production, for sure the SALES were not stopped... speaking of the Spider, you would have been able to order a GM 3.2 up to the end of June 2010.. also, they removed the 3.2 FWD in 2008 (i think, i can check the date) and re-introduced in march 2009, so not only they were still selling 3.2 GM, but also changing the "package".didnt they stop gm based productions by then?
Q2 was not avaible here too.. it's the E-Q2 that is... which pretty much is all electronics, no mechanical parts for it, it's really just a matter of the braking system and throttle management that (sort of) emulates the behaviour of a real Q2... works pretty nice i must say, but i think that fitting a real Q2 on a machine already equipped with a Q2 would lead to bad things...and also mine is a my07 and also also here in South Africa when it comes to alfas we only get alfas with a set features and thats that and unfortunately q2 in a 159 wasnt one of them Wish i could stay in italy like you.....
It is rather more advanced.. it's not the same as a real torsen Q2, but much similar to many extents...No the Q2 will not fit.
The E-Q2 is basically Alfas name for traction control, maybe a bit more advanced but I doubt it.
it's strange indeed... i've never seen a 159 without the asr/vdc button, but i can talk for local market only.Strange but his 2.2 isn’t fitted with the button so either it can not be disengaged or the car isn’t fitted with it which will be strange considering that all Alfas after 2004 were fitted with ASR VDC and a button.
