I live in Vancouver, Canada and have just bought a bit of a dream car of mine a 164 Q4. I found it in Japan and it arrives here in about 3 weeks .

Its a black on black car with dark red door inserts and has only 83k kms from seems in good condition ???
The vin # is ZAR16400006304974.

Any information on build date etc would be greatly appreciated. I am also planning on doing a full cam blet service as soon as it arrives.....what parts do i need and where can i buy the parts from.

Welcome :) I guess the wait for opening the container can be long! Photos will be much appreciated.

Regarding parts I suggest you look here for what and where to order, as you are located in North America" onclick=";return false;

Those parts are the same, as for the other 24V 164's. You can also search this site for some information on parts, as some are specific to the Q4, e.g. the intake hose.
1994 Alfa Romeo 164 Q4 Proteo Rosso
1989 Lancia Thema 8.32 Verde Indy
2001 Alfa Romeo Spider 3.0 24V Blue Lightning
2011 Alfa Romeo Giulietta Multiair TCT Bianco Pastello
2015 Alfa Romeo 4C Rosso Competizione
1980 Alfa Romeo Alfetta Blindata Bianco
