  5. 916 Spider in Sussex.....!

    Hello All Great to have just found this forum especially dedicated to 916 owners! I've owned my Spider TwinSpark 16V since 2002, which was my regular drive (2-3 times weekly rather than daily) until 2007, then it became a garage queen and so has only covered 43k miles. It's hardly been used the last 8 years, only coming out for sunny days. Anyway, I had it MOT'd this morning and have now taxed it, so will be stretching it's legs a little over the next couple of months of summer. And hoping the oil leak it's developed isn't serious.. Glad to be part on this forum! P.S. why are there no 'car' emoticons on here?

  8. Hello All! I just became the proud owner of a 916 Spider CF1 this weekend. It needs some TLC but it so puts a smile on my face and the wifes! Anybody from Portugal around? Mário

    Is it still possible to get this file? I would highly appreciate it. I was actually even thinking of a reversed template and just spraypainting it on. bentholmjr@gmail.com

    Late 90es were such a great time for cars... now you can't buy affordable Alfa Romeo coupe and enjoy it for years to come, like we do with our 916s.

    Hopefully you can bookmark the details above in case they are ever needed Paul

    So, as it turned out the new lock/ignition barrel/keys were not required (luckily I didnt fit any of the hardware). The keys are sealed and the chips in them are locked to a matched immobiliser box. Both need to sourced based on the VIN of your car. I will therefore be reselling the complete unused set, if there is a buyer who can use them? 🤦‍♂️ The specialist (https://www.ecudecode.co.uk) 'virginised' my ecu, re-chipped my immobiliser box (it had been damaged by a voltage spike it seems) and has created a new matched 'master' transponder chip + 3 other matched transponder chips. Everything is being delivered back to me tomorrow (Cost £250 inc tax and shipping). I have purchased the replica key blanks below (with case shells that open) and will insert the transponder chips into these and get the blades cut to match my current ignition barrel/locks. https://www.keycasereplace.co.uk/alfa-romeo/12-alfa-romeo-key-shell-gt15r-blade-with-tpx-chip-position-red.html?fbclid=IwAR1xqcj-goD0Un9Ewkf6tg8ORUruuYJkwh8jktCsN4U5FuVA_oxvH6RE6RU Hopefully the Busso will sing again by the end of this week 😁

    Great! Keep us posted!

    Sure Paul. If it's ok I'll wait until they have completed the job succesfully and returned my ECU/immobiliser/keys before sharing a recommendation though 😉 Should be back with me by the end of the week hopefully. I was delayed sending them off (Should have arrived with them at lunchtime today) as I ran into issues removing the steering wheel to access the immobiliser ring aerial. One of the airbag retaining torx bolts rounded out and I had to drill it out 🤦‍♂️
