  1. Oh! Sorry, didn't pay attention to the listing then The sideskirts were looking good, it was the splitter that made me ask questions I'm interested only in the CUP elements, so will think about the sideskirts only, in case I do find a CUP splitter somewhere else. Thanks!
  2. Price for side skirts and front splitter only, including shipping to Bucharest, Romania? [emoji41] LE: just saw the front splitter item(s?) listed.. afaik, the genuine front splitter consists in one piece. Are you sure you're selling proper replicas? This makes me seriously question the sideskirts too.. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Alot of 916 content on Alfatographie lately
  4. My understanding is you built this project for absolute performance! Thus I understand why you're running a V6 or using 330 brakes, but such eider rims, especially on the back, they only bring weight, no performance anyway, if you are happy with the result, this is the most important thing, the car kicks ass none the less!

  5. Since you (obviously) shifted focus towards performance and weight reduction, a thing I don't understand much is why you went for 11" width rims on the back. Running 295 tires on the back on a FWD car really doesn't make too much sense! Nor running 235 on 9" width rims.. It's a shame, because you spent so much time, money and energy in saving few hundred grams of weight in some parts while you can really save a few kilos from the rims/tires setup! I think you could have gone with 8x18 and 225/40/18, maybe aiming for a lower ET on the back wheels to get a slightly wider track..

  7. Sold! Fortunately, somebody will gonna rescue it!
  8. No longer available, sold the car as a whole.
  9. Finally! I also looked for wheel options for quite some time now, I was thinking of 19" 939 TI's, BBS CK's, even found a set of Sienas which I always dreamed of! But in the end decided to stick to the OEM Teles, the car was (technically) designed for 17", they do match really well the car shapes, and last, but not least, I suspect 916s will turn out as a really appreciated classic, and having it as factory spec as possible would be a big plus in many years from now Regarding the engine, why would you want a 3.0 V6 instead of a 2.0 V6 TB? I'm not asking this because I consider the v6 TB superior in any way (I actually consider the opposite), but I'm really curios on your reasons, as you owned this V6 TB for quite some time now and is obviously a well taken care one. In my opinion, besides the technical implications which I am not very familiar with, a showstopper I see is that you already had the car stripped and you'll probably have to do it again..
  10. Looks really really well! Although I like better the ph2 interior, I somehow appreciate more amd more the ph1 interior, suits the youngtimer look&frel even more! I was just thinking the other days how, ironically, I would have preffered my GTV being older, preferably from the first series in '95 ) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Sorry to bump such an old thread.. but.. do the audio controls on the 166 steering light up? If so, did you need to wire up anything differently?
  12. Selling a GTV 2.0TS for parts 2003, 160.xxx km on clock, failed engine due to lack of oil, the rest of the car is fully functional Valuable parts that can be found on it: - set of 17" Teledials - black leather interior in good condition Car is located in Bucharest, Romania. Guess it might be interesting for near countries such Bulgaria, Serbia, Hungary, even Greece or Croatia, as picking it up on a trailer should not cost more than a few hundred Euros.. Price is 650E (of course, you need to arrange pick-up and transport to your location, I can help if needed)
  13. Selling a set of OEM 17" Teledials (7.5J x 17" ET 35). They come with 225/45/17 tires I can provide for free, though I suggest replacing them. They do have minor scratches, if you're into having the car in mint condition, I suggest a refurb. They are located in Bucharest, Romania. Can send them worldwide, with a shipping of your choice, but only with payment in advance. Charlee met me in RL, I hope he can confirm I'm can be trusted For shipping costs, I suggest sending them without tires, but I'll leave the choice to the buyer. Price is 400E + shipping costs I can arrange for a relatively cheap shipping method in case you are in one of these areas: http://www.postaatlassib.ro/retea-agentii/europa/ (you'll have to do the pick-up yourself from a specific location, so please check where the pick-up location is)
  14. Spacers on the back are exactly what is needed, thanks for the update, just made up my mind Still, what tire sizes are you using? Makes me think they are 225/35 or something similar, they don't look the right size..
  15. Sold my 916 Spider more than 4 years ago, owned a Brera and then a 939 Spider, while my girlfriend had a MiTo. Sold both our Alfas late last year and replaced them with other makes. After almost 12 years of Alfa ownership, I was no longer an Alfa owner Or so Without anybody knowing it (not even my girlfriend), I bought a GTV TS 2 days before Christmas! It was in good condition, with some good maintenance done by the previous 2 owners (which I both knew): full PU bushes on the rear axle, rebuild exhaust, new tires etc. Unfortunately, the engine failed 2 years ago due to insufficient oil.. Now it was lying in a yard, with it's engine torn into pieces. I was on a tight budget, so planned carefully for the acquisition and the engine rebuild. Few days later, I was spending the entire repairing budget on another GTV with same problem (broken engine) This time, it was a beautiful Edizione Sportiva, with it's typical red carpet - black leather / red stitches electric seats interior Fast forward, 5 months later, I finally managed to have the engine rebuilt, swapped the interior with the one on the Edizione Sportiva, installed side wings & rear spoiler, Eibach sport springs, swapped the MP3 player with an old-school high-end series Pioneer, and drove the car to AlfaFest, our annual national Alfa meeting Car is far from being perfect, engine still doesn't run as it should, exterior could use some fresh new paint, there are some parts that need immediate replacement (some crankshaft or bearing) etc. but will get there with time! On the plus side, it's far better preserved than I expected, it also handles far better than I expected on twisted roads (definitely better than my old 916 Spider, although that was also tweaked in terms of suspension). Although I fancy with photography myself, untill I shoot my own pictures, here are some official photos from the event, shot by a famous romanian automotive photographer. Enjoy!
