  2. So back to Alfa again!


    for daily drive i bought a Gt Q2 jtd in Nero Carbonio.


    The Q2 has some nice options like black with red stitched seats, perforated leather steering wheel with red stitches, all the chrome is Alluminium, sporty Allu pedals, tacho is black with red and offcourse the Q2 sperr differential.


    The car is chipped bij Squadra, other downpipe and Egr switched off. For a diesel its really fun to drive. Seats and driving positition off the Gt are incredible good!


    Today i switched the 18" Q2 wheels with almost new Gt Toora's looking sweet and classy, still goth some 18" Siena's i need to refurbush and polish in the future.


    Car will be slightly lowered and i will swap the headlights for the blackline xenon units to make the front more modern.


    The Vette is in his deep wintersleep sadly, last year i transformed interior from black / black to Maserati cognaq with alcantara, dubbel din radio conversion sill needs to be done. Updated the brakes with the massive Z06 C6 callipers and perforated discs, stainless X-pipe, tinted the windows slightly and some other modifications.


    nice to see the forum here is still growing and there so many 916 enthiousiasts!


    i have never seen my old spider back, sometimes i truly miss the car when i see the nice cars here on the forum ore look at some old photo's... 


    Maybe one day....

  3. The 18'' Toora's are great!! would look perfect in dark grey/gun metal finish under you're car!

    Make some overall pictures off the car! :thumbsup:


    I also just bought (3 days ago) a GT Q2 Jtd-m with 180 bhp, very nice car for long distance driving, seats are incredible!

    Not sure about the 18'' Q2 wheels i have now, still have a set of 18'' Siena's i will try and otherwise will look for some Toora's and spray them Black chrome.


  4. Difficult choice, been there… i would not go to track with my 2nd car but the top must open and rwd where a must.


    Been looking for Porsche 3.2 Boxster, 350Z roadster, Bmw Z4 3.2, Lotus Elise, Mass 3200gt and off course the Vette...


    I must say still love the Lotus but its not for long distance trips... the Mass is very expensive for parts and very unreliable if it comes to transmission and technical and if you want convertible price is way to high and i would by a Ferrari F355. 


    Eventuely i came with the Vette 6-speed manual transmission and i don't regret the deal one bit!  :D

    Change the shocks, lower it and you got a killer machine 1390 kilo's 0-100 4.7 sec and for a 15 year old car thats even today very fast.


    Good luck with you're choice, is can only say go test drive them all!

  5. Some update, for the one interested...

    Charlee asked me if i missed the Spider, well sometimes i do… i've got so much nice memory's and all the work i have done to it i will never forget her. Also i am still active reading here and on the Dutch fora and will always love the lines of the 916.

    I will see the Spider back this summer when i meet the new happy owner of the Spider.

    I do not regret trading the Spider for the Vette, its my new project i really enjoy driving it and the modifications are going full speed :)

    For now i have installed some 19'' and 20'' Hre 3-piece wheels, koni shocks and borla exhaust.

    At the time the complete interior is out... the dash, seats, door panels and some other small panels are getting resprayd in cognac tan color to get some contrast with the blue metallic paint.

    Also Fabian is working on a custom bracket for a Raid 340 steering wheel. Center console needs modification for a dubbel din Pioneer and some other nice upgrades are on the way.

    High on my wish list are ridiculous big brakes, sorting things out for now...

    Went to some guy for Vette parts and he had a C5 with a Rotex supercharger, 580 horsepower on the real wheels! Going to drive the car this summer so i can keep on dreaming for some days, months, years… :happy0045:

    Some photo's i shot recently.

  6. Spider is traded in so no sale for me.


    The head up display is the only option it misses, but all the wiring is already under the dash so should be easy fix to install the head up in the future, connect it and go.  :D


    In cornering its also very good! the car has perfect weight balance 50/50, engine is placed far behind under dash, transmission is above rear wheel same with differential. you would be amazed how the car handles for an American, way different than the C4 ore older models, The C5 haves great race history because of its good performing.


    Yesterday we had Alfa meeting at Zoetermeer, i went with the Vette together with the Turbo Spider from Chris, Ed and Robert as passenger.

    Nice run on the highway together until we where destroyed by 1980 Scirocco with a 20/25k Vr6 turbocharged engine under the hood…  :o


    We had good laugh eventually.
