Tyres?

I have Dunlop FM901's on my Alfa (very happy with them) and Yokohama A539 on the GT-Four (very very happy with them).

Hi Richard...

I missed the reference to Ronals on your website (well spotted Nick)...If your car is shod with A1's you must have been the one I spotted parked on Broadway earlier this year?

Yes I have the same ones as the black car. Brain fade caused me to forget their name. Got them 5 years ago at the euro (ripoff) wrecker in Onehunga. Asked if they had any alloys for a 75 and they dug them out of a pile. Bought them on the spot despite the $500 cost! I declined the $250 they wanted for a door...

Broadway was possibly me.

Here she is without being washed in crap light conditions and with bird crap running down the side. 10 points for whoever can pick the most faults in the bodywork!

a1s look so nice on 75's or gtvs if you picked them up in good condition $500 is alright I think . I would have thought they would have been twice that in nz

Are they 15 by 6 1/2 ?

Are talking about the place in Otahuhu ?? if so they are scumbags trying to scam $250 for a second hand headlight

Italian Auto in Otahuhu are expensive and seem to do their best to corner the market on 75's. These cars are all 15 years old now and parts should be cheap. They don't seem to think so though! There is a wrecker in Onehunga on a road that runs off Neilson street. They had a 1.8 75 that had been there so long the red paint was worn off the edges and they still wanted $250 for a door.

Parts wise Pickapart has lots of 33's go through but about the only common parts are the front guard small indicators. They had a 1.8 75 a year ago which gave up its radiator and towbar ($10!).

Yeah my experiences with them haven't been to good and I don't seem to be the only one , sometimes they are the only place with the part you really need

Score for a radiator and towbar! pickapart was awesome when I was driving around in the fxgt but I have never seen any alfas there unfortunately where did you see the 75 and 33s ?. The one in mangere is suposed to have a decent euro selection though

No rubbing issues with 15 x 7 whatsoever. The offset must have been designed specially for the Alfetta/75 chassis. I run 205/50-15 tyres.

It was Takanini that had the 75 about a year ago. Both the Middlemore mud puddle and takanini often have pre 1990 Alfa 33 rustbuckets. Generally 1.5, I've seen a 1.7 8V as well. You can normally poke a finger through the rusty bodywork on them!

They now list the cars in the yards on www.pickapart.co.nz

My theory is it is a 1946 Alfa Romeo 6C, but I have been wrong before

I went to all three AKL pickaparts on Tuesday and found no Alfas. Did find 2 BMW 5 series, a 1994 4 cyl Volvo, a V6 Audi...
