Yes, amazing, you'll notice they'll always be enthusiastically waving and cheering from their bedroom windows when you wake them up at 6 in the morning and drive to work.

Well done by the way. Great job!

Job well done!

Long time ago I saw a 0 as first digit on a 164 kilometercounter.

You called the video "Testdriven" as a teaser? It's running, but not on the road! Mount yourself a helmetcam and put in on the road!!

Enjoy your ride!

Missing the Q4

Post by Maffia_Alfista » Wed Sep 19, 2012 7:55 pm

I'm now in Luleå at the University where I'm studying Car systems engineering 500km north from my Q4 that I left in my hometown for Dinitrol rust proofing treatment at a friends company. He also fixed the flexpipes for me but unfortunately the mid section seems to have more leaks so if it's to bad for fixing I'm probably "got to" to get a stainless system fitted... *my wallet hurts..* ;)

Probably will be reunited with it on Sunday give it a MOT on Monday and drive it up to Luleå.

PS: Found an Alfa original 164 roof rack for sale in Stockholm (where I'm going this weekend).
Will buy it if it's still for sale. Good for the snowboarding-season coming up in a couple of months 8)

Update

Since last post I have driven my GTV6 down the 500km South to my Mom for winter storage in her garage and to pick up the Q4 from the Dinitrol firm. Here they are together.
Image

I also did a leather recondition with my pal Pär that are kind of a reconding enthusiast. More pictures will come later.
Image

Drove the 500km back to Luleå. Went very well except that I averaged 1.3 L/10km..
Arrived at my destination in good time strangely ;)
Image

Today it passed the Swedish version of MOT-test on the first try since 2005 (somewhat shocked with that..) so now I can drive it on the road legally.. in theory at least :mrgreen:
Image


Love this car !! :lol:

I really do, wonderfull car ! :D

I have ordered new winter (studed) tires today:

Michelin
X-Ice North 2
195/60 R16 93T

Narrower then stock but slightly higher so the percentage diameter difference to the original is only (%): 1.3

Will probably cut right trough the masses of snow we get up here... sideways :lol:

Nah. Nokian costs at least 25% more.
I got a good price on these so they will do. They have equaled Nokian Hakka 7 in some winter tire tests too.

Can I ask about voltmeter and engine temperature gauge (from the photos) - are these normal values of this car? Or it is at this moment only?

P.S. Sorry, I saw the previous post about non-working gauge.

Some ice racing from quite a few years ago when I drove the best and worst winter car I have ever had. An rusted through Alfa 90.
