  1. Lost my only key

    Best of luck! Let us know how it goes...

    Today I replaced the lower central engine mount. The problem is that the original part is no longer available for 3.0 or 3.2 V6 24V model. So, I tried my luck with the same part for Alfa Romeo 147 GTA that is still available. It's 90% the same, but the original has two tooths that are 2-3 mm different, I guess that they are just used to center it more easily, so we decided to just scrape them off and then it was a perfect fit. The left part of the exhaust manifold must go down to do the job. After a test drive everything seems fine, so I guess this is a solution if you have a similar service in your plan.

    Welcome Tiago, nice one!

    If the official Alfa Romeo dealer can't help, you'll have to replace locks and ECU. Not an easy job and not easy to find it in ok condition on scrapeyards. There is an option to remove the Alfa Code by reprogramming your ECU (expensive), but you'll still need the new keys/locks. So, there is no easy/cheap solution. In some cases Alfa Romeo can make a replica key by your serial number - yet, if available, I heard it is a slow and expensive process. Today it's quite cheap to make a replica key when you have one in working order (100€ here), so take this as a life lesson.

    Yes, just the rubber bushings... that could be the long time solution, I'll consider that. The rear is very stiff after Powerflexing so I was hesitant to put it in front too, but it's another situation in front, do you have it in front? How is it?

    However, there are some third party parts that are of premium quality, like this Shacal exhaust! It's 15 years old, superb craftsmenship!

    I've been to check my wheel alignment and suspension geometry today after the replacement of the front right Koni shock that started to leak. Kudos to Koni for a free replacement under "lifetime warranty" that those Koni Adjustable series had at the time. My front wishbones are a bit loose (TRW after only 7.000 km) and yet the original Alfa part lasted for over 100.000 km. I am not happy with the quality of this third party parts. If they last only a few thousands km, next time I'll buy the cheapest as they probably can't be worse than this. Ok, there was some miles done on the Grobnik racetrack and there was some hooligan-style driving, but nevertheless it's far too short...

    Hi and welcome! Nice one!

    Great job! And your fuel lines are good as new! I must do that also!

    It looks really nice and pro-made! It's a pity that manufacturing is so expensive and for most owners it's out of reach.

    Let us know does it work and can it be used for daily driving or just on a track?
