    Hi. I just joined this BB as I am interested in learning more about the 155Q4. I am deep into Alfas, with a 24 valve 164, a GTV-6 Grand Prix I just brought home from Italy last fall and a 1969 1750 Spider.

    I always wanted an Integrale, but now I am thinking a 155Q4 would let me have all that in an Alfa wrapper.

    Sadly I can't bring one home for several years due to US import regs. Or I'd buy that cool looking black wide body in Slovenia. Wow!

    Hi Rex,

    welcome to the forum, hows the weather at the moment? Nice selection of cars you've got there. Be good to see them in the garage some time if you get the chance. The 164 was the last car that Alfa took into the States wasn't it? I'm pretty sure we've got other 164 owners over your way.

    So what are the rules regarding importing cars into the US? I heard other people complain about the strict rules before.

    You better hurry up and get yourself a Q4 soon, there seem to be less and less about for sale these days.

    The car must be 25 years old to import without full certification. If you can persuade the Feds that it is a rare or significant car, you might get a waiver on the bumper regs (silly, yes) and then you can import it once it is 21 years old. The 21 year requirement comes from EPA's air emissions rules which you can't get around on this car. So a wide body 155Q from 1996 would not be legal until 2017 or 2021.

    I just bought a 1986 GTV-6 Grand Prix in Europe and brought it home with no problems (except some fool pinched the quadrofolio badges on the C pillars). It's nice having the real Euro version without silly crash bumpers and messed up engine management. She runs really well.

    In Canada, the wait is only 15 years. Seems like BMW and Mercedes have better lobbyists in the US than in Canada.

    Not bad but fun )))

    Really bad this government, for example cars we sell 2 times more expensive.
    And you can not import a used car less than EURO4.

    Well that was different! You never know what to expect in the Russian driving videos, but seriously, a tank is pushing things.

    Hello everyone!

    Hi all - I'm a long time Alfa owner. The Alfa sickness started well before I could drive. When I could finally afford one, the first Alfa I bought myself was a 75 2.5V6 (that was a long time ago!)

    Fast forward a decade or so, I got my first 155V6 (2.5) and just recently got a used 155Q4. There are enough differences as you Q4 veterans know, between the cars; I knew I had to find a community that know these machines well.

    My 155Q4 is a bit worse for wear, but a solid driver nonetheless. I'll be going through the car to restore it to "very good to excellent" condition over time. As with any of these projects, it gets harder as time goes by since these cars are so rare, but I'm up to the challenge

    Good to be here. I'll post pics in the garage area soon.

    Hi Nizam, and welcome. I didn't realise there were any 155s in the USA. I thought there were problems as they were never officially imported there, and still to young to be brought in as classics.

    So where did the Q4 come from, I know there are/were a couple in Canada, or did it come up from South America?

    Good luck on the restoration, parts can be a little tricky to get hold of but there is still some NOS out there and cars are always being broken for spares.

    Any questions then just ask away, we are mostly a friendly bunch.

    Steve, neither of my 155s are in the USA. The 155V6 is RHD and lives in Malaysia, and the 155Q4 is ex-Japan, and lives in Canada. My 75s and 164 lives in California. I'm constantly moving parts around the planet keeping them going

    Welcome...how've you got around the import rules for the Q4, 25yrs I think, or is that the USA only?

    Hi All,

    Joined the forum sometime ago but can't remember ever posting, so here goes my names Alex (aka wobble_master) and I'm an alfaholic

    Had an Alfa in life probably for the last 9 years or so, started with a 1.8 Nordic widey, then a Nero v6 widey, then went for a 2.0 Rosso widey and then a proteo 2.0 GTV all have been lots of fun. Currently own a v6 Rosso skinny that I am slowly modifying and restoring those that frequent alfa155.org will know me and my cars. Also own a 156 v6 which is going to be used in the 155

    Hello to all Q4 fans on here
    I don't own a Q4 ... so far.
    I have a Alfa Romeo GTV 2.0 V6 TB Q2. So it can be his big brother.

    Best regards
    Todor
