I have a new desktop background :)
I love the 05 picture -the atmosphere of the picture is great.

Also nice donuts-would love to hear the sound as well.
BTW: how do the rims handle the gravel doing this?

yer that pic is also my favourite.. I have 1600x1200 version of if you want it :D

and you're quite right about the lack of sound, but it wasnt really planned so I only had digicam there .. as for the rims they were fine, tires just got clogged with dirt, but its better than doing it on tarmac and melting them.. also I'm sure on gravel the load on clutch/gearbox etc it also much less , and TBH I dont like to abuse my cars :D

Damn nice car :up:
I just love the colour that you have, suits the Alfa well :)

Yes please 1600x1200 would be great :D

The collor is really great-suits the alfa very well indeed. My first 75 also was the same collor and it was a lot more beautifull as my current one-although my current one is a lot better preserved.

So as your Alfa looks really really great now-do you abuse it more or less as your previus one? Some people really wouldnt do donuts with it at all(not among them myself) for fear of scratching....

If you would know your 75's you would allready know what engine it has based on the rear bumper. Also you can sort around when it was made by the grill and the rear lights.

Yes, I get it very much more of quality, and it don't have rust everywhere!
Next thing what I make to the exterior is that I buy a Cossie's sideskirts (when I find them, and please don't say Completos, theyre expensive, and they don't fit) then the body is 100 % like in Cossies, and in next summer I have painted it to white (don't say it's boring color, it's awesome, in Fords) Aaaand many many others.

And by the way, Dan, it have upraged to about 150 hp, and I have planned to get turbo in it, and you can get easily, to 2.0 OHC Sierra's engine with turbo over 250 hp.

Our car is ugly as pepes :P

Damn, but dude (I use ''dude'' word too much :P ) I really love how it look right now too... :wave:

Well I think the beaty is always with the spectators eyes...

Oh, almost forget... and I'm going to buy 16''-17'' aluminium wheels, and Cossie's scoops and (maybe) RS500 splitter to it.

And I can honestly say, that in two years it's gonna look like this (With RS Cosworth's front bumper, no with RS500's bumper):

Pepe-why not getting a real sierra cosworth than? I am sure that it will cost you the same as the upgrades you have planned. Not to mention that you will get lots of right things along(like the proper driveshaft, brakes, suspension, steering, properly working engine, right clutch.....)
You should be aware that there is a lot of things that need to be fixed to be able to keep runing higher power. The people trhat made the car originaly were not stupid and they made such components that are rright for the specified engine. Change some engine property and you will get less lifetime for parts.... Not to mention that everything is set up to the same spec.

My suggestion-leave your sierra as it is for the few years you will acctually use it and save your money for a real Sierra Cosworth or something better. You will not regret such a decision one you will be able to get yourself such a car. And belive me-serial cars always run better than some overtuned cars.

Np, it cost very much less than Cossie, in finland you must pay 8000-10000 euros for Cossie, and tuning old Sierras is easy and very cheap.
and by the way, my Sierra is much more better to drive than original, because of my english I can't say how is it maded better, but it have maded, much more better.

And about getting Turbo to Sierra 2.0i OHC EFI, it costs me about 500-800 euros so...

And what it is coming to cost about making exterior better looking, cossie side skirts, 80-100 euros, scoops about 50 euros, not so much, isn't it? :)

And the painting, my dad have an below in his job, who is car painter, so I maybe get the painting very cheap from him.

In 3/4 year I have putted about 1500 euros to my Sierra...

It's much more cheaper than cossie, and it have keeped so good, so it don't have really anything special to fix. :)
