Cheers I'm keeping my eye out for a standard 900 in the same colour so I can park next to it and take a photo to compare ride heights!!!

Dent was really annoying but then our Alfa 145 got crashed the next day so I got over the dent! Think the only way to sort the dent will be a 1.4 16v engine.

On the plus side, our now dead Alfa is a 1.6 and has the 257mm front discs so I've got the choice of them or the Uno Turbo calipers. Don't think I can bring myself to taking the Revolutions off though, I love them!

Shame about the dent Could you not take the door card off and push most of the dent out? looks about the right height

I may be interested in some parts from the 145 - I have a 145 QV!

I've just bought my second 145....got a 1.8, and just bought a QV.

I'm sure someone else on the 145 forum has got a Cinq as well....some sort of pattern emerging here...:what:

re: My '93 1.4 16v Cinquecento

I've noticed this too..

And I swear recognise Duncan name too - were you at Spring Alfa Day at the cotswolds when it poured down? 2012 maybe?

This has gone off topic but atleast it's all Italian

The 257mm discs behind 13s??? I didn't think it was possible, gonna have to try that. Did you use any spacers? Caliper clearance looks pants on the Revos though....

Yeah, I'm off the 145 forum and I've been to several Spring Alfa days where it rained a lot!!

re: My '93 1.4 16v Cinquecento

I had 15mm spacers on are yours from an Alfa which is what mine are from. It's worth a try pretty sure after I fitted the brakes I tried them and they went on. I now run 14s revolution so I can use 195/45 uniroyals

No idea, they are 4x98 but 13x5.5, think I'm right in saying you had 6j?
Not sure what ET mine are but 15mm spacers would make them stick out a mile! I'm definetly going to try that though, I'll be stoked if I can keep the wheels and have the stopping power, cheers mate!

re: My '93 1.4 16v Cinquecento

Yep 13x6 et 45 I think came off an Alfa 33 iirc. The were just out by not much was lowered 40mm and back scrubbed with lots in it on the way back from Stanford 2012 empty was fine. It's worth a try although with a 1.4 in it might light up its tyres a bit too easily?

hehe

The plan is to run on Yoko A048 tyres and ultimately go for a Quaife ATB so that should provide enough grip. At a guess, my Revos aren't ET45, something lower. Will trial fit this weekend and post some pics.

Hey Duncan,

Good to see you back in a Cinq. I remember going to Glasgow years ago in your old Imola Blue that Jamie86 bought, to do an exchange deal to bring back the Sei Turbo from Donna, which now resides with Chris(Blu). It was a busy 2 days.

We've still got one that's not been used in ages, but may have to resurrect it this year seeing as I got a new helmet for Christmas and need a reason to wear it, and getting the Cinq on track seems reason enough.

Hello Aaron, hope you are all ok mate? Still got the 'grale I hope!

It is nice to be back in a Cinq, sort of an early midlife crisis for me I think! Mine is now destined to slowly become more track focused and I intend to get to Bedford Autodrome at some point this year.
