Re: Alfa 164 2.0V6 TB Super (1995) - MikeCZ

So first real problem - just 3 days after oil replacement, when I have checked 4 times I have oil topped up exactly to maximum on oil dipstick, when I was driving back from an Alfsti meeting (and pushing her quite hard I have to say - 180+ km/h), first I have observed small blued cloud behind the ca...

Re: Alfa Romeo 164 2.0 TS For sale

Nah, in Czech Honza is used for Jan similarly like previously Jack in English for John :) Just in English Jack is now "standalone" name whereas Honza is not in Czech (Based on last population counting there are 7 in the Czech Republic - compared to 294344 Jans :D)

Re: Alfa Romeo 164 2.0 TS For sale

I know this Alfa (Actually it was first on my list when I wanted to buy a 164, but back then Honza backed out on the sell for the time - he did not have his BMW yet, and in the meantime I have bought mine) and in person it's as great as on pictures! I can fully recommend it :)

Re: Replacement for shock absorber upper mount

Well only question is, who will arrange it :)
If counting correctly I think at least 4 sets would be taken from CZ and I guess at least the same amount from PL.
Here are at least 3-4 another interested persons, so it's 12.

Re: 2nd Alfa - 164QV from Taiwan

Welcome and congrats to your beauties! It has to be such a pleasure to see you red 164 on a parking lot where other cars will be most likely the same (silver sedans/vans/etc.) as it's so rare :) (although I'm starting to have that feeling here as well recently, even with my "boring" blue color :D)

Sorry, I owerlooked this one earlier :oops:
I'm living on the other side of the country (Ostrava region), so not aware about varnishers close to German border, but I will make some enquiries and let you know with the result / ask guys from that region who has 164 to reply here if possible.

Thanks for the worning abou 0 580 464 997 - It showes as result for the TB engine as well and I was thinking about ordering one (as my fuel pump is also starting to take time during some starts) Only possibility would be that the TB pump is different then for the atmospheric enginers, but I doubt so.

Hello guys, I would like to open this topic for discussion about (mainly front) shock absorber upper mounts on Super versions.

Haydn, don't even think about it! Even though you still have some minor stuff to fix you will never get the money the car is worth... not only considering market (mechanical) value, but also "emotional"...
