Had a busy morning down at my Dads place fitted this finally (Thanks to Nobby for supplying)...

It went from this.. (sh!te camera phone pics sorry but wasn't going to get grease all over my new digi camera)






to this...






Sounds very nice but not too loud, I took the bumper off fully and it made it very easy to get to all the nuts, although the 2 captive nuts on the 2 sides broke free so had a bit of fun with a spanner and socket to get them off. I didn't remove the wheel liner at all only removed the 2 clips each side holding it to the bumper.

I can't really test if fully yet as I have also just fitted these this morning and not bedded in yet..



Also fitted a new NS wishbone but couldn't be arsed to take any pics of that as it was boring to look at.

Off to bed the brakes in now pappap.gif

Got the RedDot discs and RedDot pads from http://www.motorsportworld.co.uk/ have a look there for the price I paid

Only done a few miles with them on and they already seem better than the standard stuff.

I may do a sound clip if I get chance, not too much difference in the car, just abit more throaty and boomy but not chav like. But it does seem to pull a bit jerky not as smooth as before but I'll give it a few more miles till I set judgement on it. Off to Cheshire 2mos so that will give me a good run.

Is there a filter or anything inside the resonator - or is it just a funny shaped lump of plastic?

Got the part from Nobby (member on here) it's an original alfa part so the fitting is perfect and you should be able to get it from any alfa dealer the part number is somewhere on this forum too.

You should be able to just do it on a jack as you don't need to fully remove the bumper to put the pipe on, I removed it just to make it easier.

You are right you know, driving on the right hand side of the road is WRONG. Most people are right handed, i'd rather have the majority of people steering with their dominate hand and change gear with the left...those crazy frenchies doing ut all wrong again lol

CMA - nice work with that resonator removal...........but unless I'm mistaken........ you've got your new discs on the wrong side! Those grooves should fling out the dust and crap, centrifugally - not push it all in to the hub like yours will!
I'm sure you need to swap them over - R to L, L to R.

6 Groove go on a different way? - there's no way on earth that's the case - all grooved discs go on the same way - grooves on the upper edge should be angled up to the rear of the car. Unless you drive everywhere in reverse!?! blink.gif
