I don't know if it's "The Choice", but I got a redtop for my '91 ~2 years ago during a sale at Amazon. I've been very satisfied with it. Performs as expected, even though the car is sporadically...

Hello dberry001 -- Thanks for the reply on the steering wheel. I had been working on incomplete info. When I started looking into replacing the wheel with Nardi I was told by a vendor that "here's...

Dberry001 -- Nice looking example. Clean and straight. Pretty much a duplicate of mine, right down to the dash crack. Same shape. Same place.

Anyway, the steering wheel you used is the one I plan...

Hi -- Thanks for the reply. I will go the multimeter route on the alternator just to test it. But since the gauge reads OK and the warning light for the charging system isn't lighting up, I'd be...

S4: Idiot light question

Good evening -- I've encountered a weirdness over the last couple of weekends. As I get close to 3500 rpm the warning lights for Coolant Overheat and for Parking Brake Reminder start flickering on...

Electronic LED Flasher Relay (Spider S4, some S3s and ?).

Brand new in box (never installed). Works in Spider S4 and at least some S3s. May work in other Alfas of a similar vintage, but youd have to confirm pin layout, etc. I installed one in my 91 spider...

Thanks for the reply Gary. I use superbright quite a bit, but they didn't have a 4-pin relay. They had a 3- and 5- version, but said they were thinking about offering a 4-pin unit sometime in the...

Yep, will be going through the same process this winter. Just got a letter from my insurance company that they are OK with me yanking the airbag -- that it will not impact my coverage or rates.

LED flasher relay

Just wanted to follow-up on this thread from a couple of months ago. I wanted to convert the signal/brake lights on my S4 to LED without using resistors, etc., so I tried working with Simtek on the...

S4: Right tail light lens assembly

S4: Ignition Switch

Greetings all -- My '91's ignition switch is pretty much done for. Sometimes it doesn't want to turn at all, and when it is running there is nothing holding the key in (it easily slides out).

Hi -- There is a replacement airbag for S4 spiders? Do you have a website? When I looked last year online I kept drawing blanks when I entered 1991 Alfa Spider.

Also, to add to the conversation --...

Just a follow up on the UK flasher relay for LED signals. The company responded and said Alfas weren't on their list of applications, but they agreed the pin placement looked correct. They asked for...

That looks correct. The prong labeling looks decent as well. Thanks for finding this -- it was a different UK company than I had tried earlier.

It's cheap enough to just give it a whirl, but you...

California living.

Took a '91 Spider out for nice loop along the freeways near San Jose for 40 mins so it would ace it's biennial smog test as it has always done over it's 28 year existence.

But, sadly, it failed at...

Hi Doug - Thanks for posting the pic. That's a car that looks well loved.

360mm was what I am leaning towards. That makes the diameter only an inch less that the 390, or only 1/2 inch more space...
