    Hi Pete! GTA wheels are nice (I had them on 156), but IMHO maybe a bit "too rough" for a very smooth and elegant GTV design. Original 17" teledials are better choice if you can't get GT Blacklines or Zender Siena. About suspension: in most cases with Koni, Novitec, Eibach and H&R you can't go wrong, but I don't know what is still available. No experience with Alfaholics exhaust, I have custom built Shacal and it's great. There should be someone here with that exhaust. Yes, it's a keeper! Best, Davor

    I thought about that, but this was so easy solution and I almost alway drive with the lights on, so it's not a big deal. Maybe one day when I replace the headunit.

    New update! Haha, this is really a small one, but it's rather useful - double USB charger and current voltage display. It's very inexpensive and super simple to install if you just replace the cigar lighter. However, as that is too simple and I wanted to keep the old port (because of some old lamp and tyre compressor), I decided to use the empty slot for the roof window switch. You can buy the USB charger in red, green or blue illumination and it's only 3.95€ with free shipping from China. https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32851636159.html The only catch is that if you take power from the cigar lighter, you must patch it to the yellow wire (illumination) because red wire is permanent power and that way the display and circutry will drain your battery. So, for the USB charger to work you must at least turn on daylights. Seems as a ok compromise to me. On the end of the DIY session everything is very tidy, almost factory like!

    Love it!
  7. Not the usual way, to go from Busso to Twin Spark, but if your roads are more suitable for a lighter nose, you'll be good.

    Welcome! Those nice OZ Ultraleggeras will stand out in some other color, do you plan to refurbish them?

    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.
