I'll be there too. No 33 to go in though as it was sold a while ago. Might turn up in a 1.8 Alfa 75 though. I miss the boxer experience - haven't driven a 33 in months now. But I have to say that I ha ...

Funny thing is that our 33 1.3 IEL warms up really quickly - but for the first few seconds when it is cold, it drives very roughly. Zenith_P says this is normal with the Weber/IAW injection system - ...

Is this is same on any Alfa 33 (non-16v) if you have lowered springs and use normal shocks? Do you then also get negative camber?

The difference between the 155 15 inch wheels and the 33 wheels is in the centre bore. The 155 centre bore is 0.5 mm smaller in diametre, which means that they are a tight fit. Ideally, you should h ...

Yes Edd has loads of parts for several Italian cars - especially Alfa's. The company is called Alfatech though, I believe, but that is his current email address.

By a tyre fitting specialist I have been advised that the correct pressure for 195 50 R15 (on Alfa Romeo 33) should be 2.2 bar front and rear.
