Hi Murat,

No, I don't have the equipment for that new, I pretty much stop at about 1980 cars, Try Bernie at Bent Wrenches in Mission.

Thanks, Rick

Try Ricambi.alfisti.net or alfaworkshop.co.uk. They are both in Europe so you pay a little extra for freight but those are the best sources I found for my 1997 GTV 3.0

Try Lordco there is really nobody here that sells Alfa parts. You may have to go to the US for parts Centerline, Vicks or APE ( used Alfa parts ) Call me tonight after 7 I might have some used stuff 778-989-3403

Thanks, Rick

I think nothing local. You can source used parts from Japan or Mexico or from the East Cost of Canada. Your parts are easy to find, find cross reference by Brembo and buy from ebay. Also in Vancouver you have several AR dealerships, order from them Ricambi Originali

Sorry but do you have any idea what you are talking about? Do you live here, if you do, you would know that there is only 1 Alfa dealer here and they don't have a clue about anything older than a couple of years. Japan??? Mexico ???

I'm from Calgary.
Ok, first I would find a part numbers you need.
http://pekidi.com/navi?FORCED=TRUE&K...PARAM=LANGUAGE

Use the VIN of your car and find what you need.
Ask any FIAT or Alfa dealers to deliver your parts, if they are still available. They can order your parts from Europe.
Mexico and Japan - Alfa officially sells cars in both countries, you can find a source of used and new spare parts from both countries.
Also by original part number you can buy aftermarket parts from Brembo for instance. Use EU version of Brembo web site, you find cross reference catalog. By Brembo catalog you can find cross reference to other manufactures.
Also Google TecDoc. It is EU version of cross reference for aftermarket parts. Google part numbers and you'll find what you need online.
Also you can go to subito.it or Kijiji.it and buy used parts from Italy.
Anyway you need to find original part numbers from ePer, this is the starting point.

You may want to talk to Leah's in North Van (formerly N&M -- Joey still works there). I think it's difficult to support cars that were not officially exported to North America because of supply, tools, etc.

OKP in Germany has everything you need (see here). They are relatively expensive but I had stuff arrive at my door 48 hours of ordering on their web site. AFRA in Italy has front rotors and pads (no rear discs, see here) but, unless you speak Italian, I find them a pain to deal with. Alfaholics in the UK is great if you're leaning towards performance gear (see here).

I hope you'll make it to the Father's Day event (same location, time, and access as last year, see this thread) -- preferably with your car, else there probably will be some other 916 owners to talk to.

Reudi, it won't work like this. He needs to know part#. There are 5 different part numbers of front rotors of GTV/Spider.
I do not think that there is a problem to find anything for GTV. It is a model based on Tipo2 platform. Some parts are from Tipo4 (164, Thema). More then 2 mln cars were made based on this two platforms. The hardest parts to find for GTV/Spider are rear suspension parts and some parts for interior.
All other stuff is easy to find at eBay or online stores. Also there is a huge selection of aftermarket parts. The problem is in shipment and taxes.
The first step of buying parts is ePer + VIN.

Off. Regarding AFRA. They want 176 Euro for the 1 front lower arm! Two arms made by TRW cost 50-70 Euro. The same is about brakes. Brembo Max rotors will have at least twice less pricing than original rotors from AFRA.
Their prices can work for old classic cars, but not for 916 GTV or 155.
