Hi From Canada


Just found this site the other day was browsing around Alfa 916 and it popped up have been in the Alfa Club in Canada for years our other Alfa is a Series 4 1991 Red Spider. We use to have a 1992 164S but it became to expensive to maintain for what it was worth it was still my favorite sedan and we had some great trips in it one was 10,000 km to the Grand Canyon another story.

We got the 98 Spider last summer just before we headed off to Newfoundland an 8 week road trip in our 92 Red spider that's another story.  

Let me tell you about our 98 it's Blue and looks like it is new.  It came from Japan, we can import cars into Canada if over 15 years.  The car has only 33,000 Km on the clock.  I don't know if the belts have been changed so that is the first project.   Got all the parts fro EBspares and some tools from Totally Alfa. After reading all the info I can find will do it my self.  Everything is pretty original. The radiator is new old core is pretty rotted have to replace the middle exhaust has a hole in the pipe at the silencer. Got a new one form EB at the same time.

Right know the two spiders are stored in a garage waiting for spring we still have snow on the ground and it was -3C this morning.  Should have them out in 3 weeks as the weather is trying to get better. We are getting the car ready for a trip this summer firstly off to the Nationa Alfa Convention in Providence Road Island,  There will be a few of us from Camada.  After the convention we are planning a 4 week road through Main, then to New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and finally back to home in Ontario via Quebec.

I will try to attach a pic of our Spider to this intro and will browse around the site.  

Keep the Alfa's going

My '96 TB came from Japan, via Canada too. I just had it imported into US, couple month ago.

Welcome here  :thumbsup: . Yet another 916 fan from "exotic place" (for such car)  B) .

As far as I have read it is not uncommon a low miles car from Japan. I'm a fan of Delta Integrale and there is peoples/companies which import low miles, rust free examples.

Finding parts there is difficult for sure  :( . 1-2 sites come to my mind, which offer many parts (off course there is many other companies):


http://www.mister-auto.com/   (they have "local sites" at many european countries - look flags at the bottom)

First maybe can deliver there, but second one I'm pretty sure no. If you have a option for delivery with some "intermediate" transport company this will expand your possibilities  :) .

      Dear all,
      After some time as a lurker at several Alfa Romeo communities I registered earlier today so I can contribute properly to this excellent knowledgebase for Alfistis - and mainly GTV916-owners - worldwide.
      I have recently bought a somewhat unique Alfa Romeo GTV 916 3.0 V6 24v, silver with red momo leather interior and red edition. Practically brand new. Would suspect it to be the "best preserved" 916 around.
      Bought from a reputable Swedish Alfa Romeo dealership with just one real owner prior to myself, this car had at the time I bought it (ca 2 month ago) done only 122 miles, havn't driven it much since, will only drive in the weekends summertime. Sounds strange but its true.
      I'll spoil this car properly - in lack of wife and kids, I can give it the attention it deserves. It is practically new - both exterior and interior considered, and my ambition is to keep it that way, while also enjoying it and driving it.
      The car is completely standard OEM except for the rear muffler end part - I'm considering switching back to OEM so the car is 100 % standard oem. From factory:
      Full Zender Aerodynamic kit with front spoiler and rear spoiler/wing
      Nordic-pack since sold from Swedish dealer in 2001
      Zender aluminum pedal set
      17" teledials
      Red edition interior and red MOMO racing leather sports seats

      Only thing I'd consider is a set of 18" Zender Siena wheels. If you have them and would consider selling, let me know.
      I look forward to contributing to the forum.
      All the best

      Hi all,
      Really great forum - very pleased to have found it. Thank you to everyone's posts that I've been surfing through all evening whilst on hols in Cyprus (wife watching Olympics and son knicked the iPad).
      I currently have a 3.2 159 - my 6th Alfa. I've spent a lot on it in the last year upgrading it here and there, but I miss the Arese engine so much having had a 147 GTA, 3.0 166 and a 3.2 GT. I've never owned a GTV, but have always loved it.
      I'm thinking of getting rid of the 159 and going for a P2 or P3 V6 GTV. My fam will flip, but the 159 isn't a family car as I drive it to work and we use the wife's Punto for any long journeys due to crazy fuel usage in the 159 Qtronic.
      What should I get? I do like the P3 nose and have loved the 3.2s I've owned. Some of your detailing on here makes any GTV simply stunning.
      Anyway, pleased to be here.
