Re: Sedicivalvoles that are still alive!

That is a beauty steve I bet that drives and sounds sweet.

Im starting to think about getting the kit taken off mine, I have a nagging feeling the kit wasn't fitted correctly in the first place and as such will continue to crack no matter how many times it's tickled. Lets face it, a standard Tipo is a thing of beauty, no need for any major styling changes, I still like the kit but if its gonna be a pain in the backside I could certainly live without it.

Sorry about that. Just posted to see what people might think the car is worth as I have no idea!

I'll put it in the classifieds after I figure that out!

Re: Sedicivalvoles that are still alive!

looking good. So it was you who bought the car off E/bay then. It need a "proper" Sedici grill though to finish it off.

The other car - I assume Dad's from your earlier post - looks as cool as mines. See old timers can still be cool!!!!!!!!!!

Re: Sedicivalvoles that are still alive!

They're 16vt wheels aren't they? 20vt's are slimmer spokes.


Them bumpers look in need of some back to black!

Re: Sedicivalvoles that are still alive!

Yeah bumpers do need blacking not had time really just using it every day and its great. Gave her a polish and came up well! Need to find a grill to if anyones got one?

No I didnt get it off ebay mate, the guy I bought it off is in my village - he won the bidding and brought it home but he has 4 Tipo 16v a Tipo 20vt along with 15 other cars some italian classics, Jensens, Scimitars, Stags, sd1's etc, anyway went to visit him and ended up bringing it home with me

Im not sure about the wheels - i had them in the garage and put em on to try them out and im not convinced i like the look of them - i have the oe wheels too and the car came on 14's which i thought looked way too small.

I dont know if i will keep the 16's on there as are advertised for sale and someone is coming to see them on saturday - if they do sell that oe wheels will go on refurbed

Thanks for your comments.

ha ha

thats what i thought, but they do - cars got vented discs etc so will compare with dads 16v maybe to check if they are smaller - believe they are off a tempra but now got a set of proper 20vt wheels of an LE so gonna try those on and sell the 16vt wheels perhaps
Also driving it to scotland next week and then to Paris and on to the French Coast so hoping it makes it

Re: Sedicivalvoles that are still alive!

I think the 16vt wheels look great - like an upgrade to the classic 14" Tipo / Tempra 4-spoke alloys. Plus it reminds people that under each Coupe is a Tipo! I don't personally like the bigger, spindly Coupe alloys, they spoil the chunky look of the Tipo.

As for the Alfa alloys, they don't really do much for the car I reckon - makes it look like a 1.4 Formula model. Maybe that's the idea.....

LOL - they're 164 wheels! It's very interesting to see them on a Tipo... they become the best part of the styling ... I think, due to the size, they actually look quite good. You just don't get plastic wheel covers THAT big

Though, those are 164 four-stud wheels, so must be off a Twinspark. My three 164s all have five-stud wheels

I wonder if you have the problem with the Sedicivalvole seats fading to green in the UK? I don't think the sun is quite as aggressive as it is in our summers.

EDIT: I just realised that both your Sedicis have too many doors? I thought they only came in 3-dr form? Maybe that was only in NZ - I know someone in NZ that made a 'custom' 5-dr Sedici out of a crashed 3-dr and a good 5-dr DGT.
