Talking Another Eastern PA Owner

Hello Everyone

Yesterday I drove home a 2016 Alfa Romeo 4C Spider

I almost did not get one as I had an awful experience at the first dealership I went to, but the second dealership and the second one I drove lived up to everything I had read, so I bought it on the spot.


Black with yellow pollen flake exterior
Black with red stitching interior
Red Calipers
18x7" and 19x8.5" Dark Fan Spoke Wheels
Spider Convenience Group
Cruise Control
Rear Parking Assist
Carbon Fiber Trim Group
Bi-Xenon Headlamps
Carbon Fiber Halo Trim Panel
Sport Tuned Dual Exhaust

I am coming from a 380RWHP Saturn Sky that I had modded heavily, but recently broke the timing chain.
Support and parts on the Sky are getting to be a Pita, so I decided that I was not going to invest any more time and money on a 10year old GM car and step up my game.
I will miss the Sky as it was a very fun car, but it is time to move on.

I also have a pretty cool Motorcycle. It's a 2006 Buell LightningBolt
[XB12R Firebolt converted to have a Lightning rear]

Topping off our Garage is the wife's 2017 Ford Focus RS

I will attach pics when my post count hits the minimum number

Nice history. I always liked those Saturn Skys!

You're going to love your lightweight Alfa!

So I have these 2 metal bars with rubber ends. They kind of look like the part that lifts a motorcycle by the rear swing arm.

I have zero idea of what to call them to even begin a search. Are they used to help lifting the car?

That leads me to a question, is there an existing FAQ or similar thread on this forum?

Don't mind Al - he likes to repeat himself.

Congrats!

Pix? I've never seen that specific colour

And pix of your mystery metal bars. They aren't for lifting the car, unless during shipping perhaps.
Throw them out, along with the rear-view mirror. You won't be needing those.

Check the sticky threads in the Technical section for references and indecies to answers to FAQ's.

Enjoy!

I'm guessing you're talking about the suspension blocks used during shipping. The dealer was suppose to return those to AR in Italy. Those are kind of rare for a end-customer to have. You might want to hang on to those. Or you can give them to me. I'm odd enough to be able to enjoy them just being part of the decor.
