Re: 1996 Alfa 164 Cloverleaf (I'm back...)

Finalfa - I also forgot to mention about the Ferrari tensioner. It's identical to the Alfa part, but often cheaper. I used one on my old Q4 when I carried out the full engine service and had no problems with it. I bought it from Eurospares here in the UK (Maserati/Ferrari/Lamborghini specialist) but...

Re: 1996 Alfa 164 Cloverleaf (I'm back...)

I believe the 24v QV and Q4 were built alongside one another throughout the same period, with the 24v Qv launched in 1993 and the Q4 following shortly after. I'm certain the Q4 didn't 'replace' the Qv in terms of production, as otherwise the Qv would have been in production for less than a year. Tho...

Re: 1996 Alfa 164 Cloverleaf (I'm back...)

Thanks, although all I have done is polish them up a bit - the previous owner had the wheels refinished like this, several years ago. The polished finish had gone dull over time, so all I'm doing at the moment is bringing them back to how they should look. Having said that, I do have experience of r...

Re: 1996 Alfa 164 Cloverleaf (I'm back...)

I was really pleased with how the wheel and the chrome intake runners look after lots of polishing! I've been thinking about some long-term plans for the car too. I usually end up buying Zender Milanos for my 164s but I really like the original Speedlines in this polished metal finish, so I think I'...

It does look good and with all the spares it looks like you have made a good purchase 8) Any idea why the car is not starting? You write that it is from 1996, how can that be?

Re: 1996 Alfa 164 Cloverleaf (I'm back...)

I've had the car in my possession for 1 and a half weeks now. Even though it doesn't run or drive, it's still nice to have a 164 again :) Last Sunday, I gave the car its first clay bar and polish treatment. The weather wasn't great so I had to rush a bit, and I didn't have time to do the interior. I...

Welcome back Haydn! Good to have you back in the club. 8) I did follow your thread on your former Q4, indeed that's what happens with those Alfas, you sell them same way as you buy them - on an impulse. :mrgreen: Glad to hear you're recovering and congrats on the purchase, she's a stunner!

Hello everyone, Some of you may remember me, I had a fairly popular thread on this forum which was all about my modified Q4. Unfortunately that didn't end very well for me - for those unaware, I became fed up with the car and sold it in September 2017, following a gearbox problem that I couldn't see...

-3.0 12v early 164 engine block - no heads, but still has crank, pistons, liners, sump etc. I bought the complete engine with the idea of building it into a performance engine (boring it out, headwork, etc) but that never happened and I sold the heads separately. -164 12v cast iron exhaust manifolds...

Hi guys, It's nice to be back! I wish I had news that I've managed to buy another 164 project - and I did come very close to buying a 1997 black 3.0 QV recently - but sadly I don't. In fact, I was going to post about it on here as soon as I bought it but there was some miscommunication and the garag...

Looks good!

CSC has also started manufacturing sports exhausts for Q4s. They're not very cheap though.

Hi Alfan, The buyer collected the car last month and took it back to the Netherlands on a trailer. I haven't heard from them since but I assume they're happy with it so far. I have also noticed that since I sold mine, I keep seeing lots of pictures of red Q4s (different cars) on Alfa pages on Facebo...

Alfa East - I sold them to my friend Daryl, who owns one of the other Q4s in the UK. He is called 'Alfamuppet' on here I think.
