Did my 1989 Milano come with a tool kit? Every old German car I've ever owned had one.

I'd seen that. So this is the kit that would have come with my 1989 Milano? I note the velcro on the bottom, so I assume it would have been stored in the trunk. Correct?

Thanks,
Mike

The Milano came with a plastic pouch in the trunk around the spare, like the 105 and 115 cars, It had a lug wrench and a screw driver plus a pliers. The gray empty case above was an option, that had spare bulbs , Fuses , open end wrenches , screw drivers, and a pliers , along with cloth gloves . I purchased a few in the day for my 164 S. I have seen them come up on Ebay

Ron:

Thanks for the clarification. I've got the jack in the spare tire well but no tools. I'll keep a lookout on eBay.

Regards,
Mike

The plastic pouch should also have had a spark plug wrench I believe.

I bought my 1988 Milano Verde new in December 1988 and the tool kit and first aid kit were in the car. The first aid kit was in a compartment behind the rear seats. The tool kit was in the trunk and the jack and lug wrench were under the spare tire. I had an owners manual and maintenance booklet. I purchased a factory service manual from Alfa Romeo and still use the manual.

I have two Milanos and the 1987 Milano Silver did not have a tool kit even if I bought it from the original owner. I bought the tool kit on eBay more than twenty-five years ago. I never used either two kit except for the spark plug wrench.

There is a very nice Milano tool kit for sale on eBay. The current bid is $175.00 and the liner is better than my kit that I bought on eBay.

^^^ Yep - that's my bid. Not the correct pliers but otherwise looks pretty nice. Hoped no one had noticed! :)

I snagged the eBay tool kit for $175.50 plus shipping - which I thought was a bargain. Now if I could just find a red trunk light bar/reflector and uncracked antenna base ......

The plastic cased tool kit was an accessory item sold by the parts department.

They did not come as a standard tool kit in any of the models.

I bought my 1988 Milano Verde new from a Alfa Romeo dealer and the tool kit was in the trunk. I did not pay extra for the tool kit and it also included a first aid kit which was located in a tray behind the rear seats. I bought two new Alfetta sedans and there were some tools in a plastic box but, the Milano tool kit contained more tools.

Our 89 Gold also had the tool case w/tools as standard issue, no extra cost. Actually, I don't even know if it has the first aid kit. Never looked in all the years we've had the car from new, lol.

Every Alfa I've bought through the decades, either new or used, has had a tool kit included.

If the tool kit came with the car when you bought it. It would be a dealer installed item.

Same thing with the oil pan guards. They are a factory accessory item. That is dealer installed.
