Re: New Member from Las Vegas!

Benvenuto! Welcome on this site.

Beautiful cars you have. So you are the one that apparently bought the proteo rosso Q4 for sale in the Netherlands, am I right?

The one showing on the lower picture was my third 164. I got her in 1998... Ciao!

Re: water floyd

Most probably a blocked water drain, think that's a common issue with a 156.

Be prepared to find a lot of rust.

Re: What is the purpose of this bonnet earth strap?

My best educated guess is to prevent any static charges from building up due to air flowing over the bonnet. This can lead to obvious issues when opening the bonnet after driving.
A missing ground wire has no effect on the car electronics.

Re: Oil Pressure

A fresh engine has about 21-28 PSI oil pressure at idle RPM when fully warmed up. (Above idle ± 49 PSI) Cold engine at idle: 49-56 PSI, above idle max. 63 PSI. Pressure indications of near zero are no exception, most probably the transmitter is the culprit especially when the oil pressure warning li...

Re: Oil Pressure

Am I correct that this spring only regulates the max oil pressure? 55 PSI at cold startup ik normal. Low oil pressure is caused by a faulty oil pump, internal component failure or worn/leaking engine. Most likely the pressure transducer is the cause of the low pressure indication. Any cause other th...

Q4 Meeting

Just to have something for the eye on this forum (I guess a 164 is very much about shape and design) I'll put a few photo's here of a spontaneously organized Q4 meeting yesterday at Schiphol airport. https://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/680x422q90/631/Dnfz0y.jpg https://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/681x42...

Re: New 164 Owner

This is definately a factory spec Q4....

What happened in most cases when the Q4 came out owners disliked the original colour scheme and had the side panels painted after the car was delivered.

Then it's 99,9% for sure a QV. I guess 20 years ago it was still possible cars were waiting for their first owner for a very long time.

Re: New 164 Owner

Maybe a typical case of delayed registration.
What do the car papers tell you? Is it a "Q"?
Does the car have electronic suspension and the red stitches on the interior?
If you want to know for sure if your car's a QV, just write an email to Centro Documentazione Alfa Romeo in Italy.

Re: Wheels, how big can you go?

I'm indeed not the right person to talk about tuning and upgrading, but that doesn't mean I dislike any changes to the original design. Many can look good. And after all, it's your car.

Those are not the correct shape. Rear side and right front are definately custom size and won't fit nicely for sure. A typical carpet simply won't bend good enough...

This car is in really bad condition. The milage seems to be correct, but it was the same milage the car had in 1995 when it was damaged in a major accident. Since then, due to some issues with the insurance company and the road recovery services, the car has been standing outside, unattended, unprot...
