    @ Steve Webb

    I started drifting with my 33 almost 3 years ago. We have had a fwd drift competition and i was the winner in year 2006.
    Then they banned fwd class and everybody told me buy a bmw it's best for drift.
    Well because of my love for alfa 33 i bought a P4 with rotten shell and good drivetrain and swaped all to a fwd shell. Ofcourse there was some cutting and welding

    You can see all the project here http://www.slo-drift.com/test/viewto...er=asc&start=0
    It's in slovenian language, but there is a lot of pictures, rwd and stuff is from page 17.

    Some stats:
    720kg
    150HP
    0-100km/h around 6,5 sec
    230km/h+

    There are some clips on youtube(tags: alfa 33 drift), and a clip of fwd drift with my 155 --> [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7F0SxDYolYY"]YouTube - Alfa 155 drift[/ame]

    Hi everyone,

    I'm from Lithuania and I'm just finishing the running-in of the engine we're building (currently just forged internals and an aftermarket exhaust manifold). After the running-in will be finished, some more work is awaiting... When the project will be finished, will post more info in the forum.

    Nice having this forum and so many Q4 enthusiasts here, keep it going

    Greetings!

    Just to say Hello to everyone here, some people might know me, some might not.

    ps
    I've seen that my old car has changed hands a few times now, but hey, hopefully somebody will restore it to it's former glory.

    Hi Darko, I certainly remember you, I've still got your strut brace on my car. Nice to see you back on here. So what are you driving these days?

    get yourself a glass of water and something sweet now

    Renault Grand Espace and Smart for2...... Third kid due in October. First time in 14 years we are alfa-less family

    anyway, I still have front left wing for 155 (narrow body) in my shed if somebody needs it...

    I am also in big dillema wht to get as a proper car. New Alfas are not apealing to me at all, time constraints are ruling out Grale and Q4...thinking of SZ but it needs more grunt...

    how is your new life in France ?

    Blimey thats all abit of a turn up for the books. Last time I spoke to you , you were living with your brother and had just written off your Fiat Barchetta. I hope the Smart for2 is for the missus?

    Life in France is good, busy at the moment as its the middle of holiday season and our gites are full. Steadily getting to grips with the language and the food, mind you the wine was no problems for me.

    Still got the Q4, but its in a state of semi-retirement. Only ever gets brought out on special occations, and still got the 500, which is in a permanent state of rebuild. At the moment the front is off of it, soon to be replaced by brand new panels.

    An SZ would be nice, pricey to start messing about with though, although the thought of a 3.5l conversion would be tempting wouldn't it. I know what you mean about the new Alfas, they aren't appealing like the older ones. Anything after (and including) the 156 leaves me cold. If I had to buy an everyday hack, I would much prefer a 75 to a 156.

    Hello I am new to the forum but not to Alfa's. I have a US model (sort of) 1995 164 Q4 with 135 klms on the clock Recaro int (factory) and I have owned over 35 other Alfa's. I have had my Q4 for a few months now and enjoy it every time I drive it

    Hi Lenard, welcome to the forum.

    Thats quite a 164 collection you have had

    As you are in the US, do you happen to know who it is who can repair the ICS unit LEDs? My dads 164 panel is playing up a bit.

    Hi Lenard,

    Nice to have you on the forum, can't wait to see a few pics of your Q4, isn't the 164 Q4 the one with the sexy Getrag 6sp gearbox?

    If you want an entry in the Q4 Register, I'm sure we can find a spot for you.

    Jack there is a guy here in CA that fixes the lcd's for about $550 US if you need his contact info I can send it to you.

    I miss a few of my old 164's I had a 91 L auto and it was a good car also the S 12v model (clover) was a nice car. I have owned over 15 164's and can not wait till buy another!

    Thanks for the info on the ICS guy, I dont think he will want to pay that much, he only paid double that for the whole car!

    Well hello there too. My name is Homme and I currently own 2 running 155s and one breaker that has to go ASAP. The runners are a 97 16V 2.0 with liquid propane injection (dialy driver) and a 93 V6 with a 3.0 12V from a 164 spooned into it.

    The breaker is a 94 2.5 V6 that had to go after I busted a big-end bearing and I could get the 3.0 car for about the same amount of money as getting a 3.0 for the 2.5 and putting it in.

    The 3.0 will be much more modified than it's current state, right now it has full leather, strut-brace, Biltein B6 rear, Eibach lowering, of course the 3.0 engine and ECU, stainless catback with sebring noisybox, open air filter. Short term plans are: 17" OZ superturismos (35 anniversary preferably, going to get them tonight if everything works out), WhiteLine ARBs (have to pick them up, already paid for), D2 rally-asphalt kit (go Steve!), BMC-CDA airfilter and Remus exhaust in stead of the Sebring (both are on the shelf already). Longer term mods will be PU bushes in the lower wishbones and either a MegaSquirt or a GoTech ECU. Also in the works is a conversion to GTA 4pods, and quickrack steering rack. I still need a rack, brakelines and a set of discs to get that done.

    The 2.0 is a daily driver and as such, gets regular maintenance, the full leathers from the old V6 will be put in eventually and the bilsteins from the new V6 once the D2 kit arrives. Other than that I have no big plans for it.

    Smile I'm back baby

    Hi all long time no see
    Last time I visited was a long time ago. So I just thought I dropped in and say hi.
    The Q4 still runs like a beast. And in the meantime my Q4 count has gone up to 3. The Monster, the everyday-car (and future spareparts lender) and the 3th one I bought with a damaged engine also for spare parts. So it seems my Monster will have a long and happy life ?)
    Cheers from Switzerland

    Hi serge,

    Good to hear from you. It almost seems normal on here these days for people to have 3 Q4's!
