Alfa 164 - converting to Selespeed?

Hello guys, It's feasible to convert an Alfa 164 V6 24V to Selespeed? I own 2 Alfa 164, both Super V6 24V in Blu Genoa, one of them with manual, the other with automatic gearbox. Honesly I appreciate the automatic within city traffics. But the manual is definitely more fun to drive. So I was thinkin...

Re: belt tensioner 24V no. 605 84 475 / 608 10 659

Someone has already pointed out in "alternative parts" that the Ferrari part. no 157356 shall be equal. So, now we reach the point where it's cheaper to buy Ferrari parts as the ones for Alfa :shock:

belt tensioner 24V no. 605 84 475 / 608 10 659

Hey guys, my garagist just called me and said that the tensioner in my 164 Super 24V does not move anymore, so we should have to change it. But, so he added, the part is not available anymore. Does anyone know where to get it (in Europe)? Alfa part no. 605 84 475 or (old) 608 10 659. Thank in advanc...

putting 166 brakes in a 164?

Hi guys, I own an Alfa 166 3.0 V6 which drives very nicely but has rust, the rear suspension is worn out and the heating / airco is somewhat defunct. So I thought about if its parts could be taken to improve my 164, most of all by putting the Brembo brakes on it? Guess it's not plug'n'pluy but needs...

Re: Alternative 3.0 V6 12V first series water radiator?

Just ask a specialist for car cooling, they will serve you the right on.

In Germany you have to pay for it in total, with installation, round about EUR 300.

As mentioned somewhere else I shipped a set of Q4 shock absorbers and steering rack for reconditioning in Poland. They are now returned and looks really good :) Still not mounted in my car, so I cannot comment on performance. You can read more here and see photos: http://alfaromeo164register.com/vi...

Re: 164 Q4 injectors

The 164 24V engines have the same injectors as the BMW M3 and M5 had then. So, you can buy parts at BMW dealers as well.

Re: Alfa romeo 164 v6 2.5 rarissima

For sure it's an italian version, the car is from Torino. :roll: But this version was distributed nowhere, and for sure not particularly in Italy where at that time was a special tax for cars with more than 2 litres.

Some lists for spare parts are listing the 164 2.5 v6. And from time to time someone asks if this version really would have been build. Here could be one: http://www.subito.it/auto/alfa-romeo-16 ... 919061.htm.

Wanted: varnisher for a repaint

My blue Genova colored Super 24V was once partly repainted in a bad way, namely the roof -including the sunroof - and the bootlid. Moreover the bonnet shows plenty stone chips and the doors have a few dents. So sooner or later it would be recommendable to make an entire repaint. Does anyone of you k...

Steering, how it feels

In the last 2 years didn't drove with an 164 until recently. Meanwhile I am used to a 916 Spider as daily driver and the way it steers. So back now in a 164 I was a bit surprised of how unprecise it steers. :shock: What about the 166 (I have never driven one)? Does it handle like a 164 with the prec...
