  1. Hello from the UK

    Ah cool. In Canada a lot of people have a dummy plate when they go to a track because they think insurance companies search internet forums for pictures of cars being used on track days.
  2. Hello from the UK

    Very nice and welcome. But why two number plates?
  3. Hello from Oregon

    Parts! Parts will be your biggest challenge given there was no Alfa Romeo presence in north America for the entire duration of the 916 production run. There are some Alfa Romeo specialists shops but they seem to focus on earlier stuff. Some components do cross over to older and newer models. Do yourself a favour and obtain a copy of ePer - Fiat/Alfa/Abarth etc. part listing software - that way at least you'll know the part number(s) you need. If all else fails, plan on some overseas purchases, I have used this source for regular maintenance parts: https://www.buycarparts.co.uk/alfa-romeo/spider-916s/14771

    I guess that US 25 year rule has holes. Welcome to the north American chapter of the amalgamated society of 916 devotees.
  5. Hello from Montreal

    Mine came from Japan and Gentry Lane in Toronto brought in mine and at least one other (silver in colour). Weirdly, Japan allowed left hand drive new European cars even though they drive on the left.
  6. Hello from Montreal

    Not too many of us Canadian 916 owners. I bought my 1996 2.0 V6 TB in January of 2019.

    Dats niiiiice. Welcome!
  8. GTV TB: GT2560R & FMIC upgrade

    In my recent upgrades I found that the foam support that holds the fuel pump had badly degraded and was turning into a sand like material which was throughout the fuel system. If yours is similar then your injectors, fuel filter and fuel pump screen may be plugged causing a low fuel (aka lean) condition at higher demand levels.

    The TB was also sold in Japan as left hand drive.
