Mail Order Customers:
  *
Our carrier DHL is operating near normally across the world. Allow an extra day for delivery (2 days for Australia, 6 days for New Zealand), just in case. However, regular international postal services can have additional delays, and are not recommended for anything required within 6 weeks.
  * For the UK only, Royal Mail are delivering the vast majority of orders on time according to our data, but is experiencing higher levels of staff absences, so there may some local delays.
  * We will be working normally and have a large warehouse full of parts that will help keep your car on the road. However, we are beginning to see supply delays from factory lockdowns around the world.
Workshop Customers:
  *
Following government guidance, we are open as usual. Taking your vehicle to a garage for repairs is a permitted activity (safety) as long as you observe the social distancing rules. We have strict social distancing processes internally and disinfect daily (not least because we have staff in vulnerable groups). In the circumstances, we have had to close our waiting room. Our mechanics wear gloves at all times and we will disinfect your vehicle with our Zaflora sprays on handing back to you. We would respectfully ask you to show our staff the same courtesy. We also have full amount contactless payment systems.
  * MOTs due for renewal from 30th March to 31st July will be extended for six months. However, you are still legally obliged to keep your vehicle in a safe and roadworthy condition, so if you need to use your car in this period, it is still strongly recommended to get one done.

Performance ECU upgrades for the 4C

See our 4C specific web site for more info on the 4C

 

The Alfa Workshop has been working for the last year on some performance upgrades for the 4C. With our in-house development engineers, in conjunction with the relevant specialist sub contractors, we are getting to the point that we feel able to offer performance upgrades to your Alfa 4C. We have already done extensive testing of all our upgrades both on the road and the track and we think that they are the best available on the market. The first of the upgrades that we are able to offer is a reprogrammed engine ECU and this takes the power up to 280 bhp with 420 Nm of torque, which as you can see we have had independently verified. The maps were all done on a rolling road using our own car and the figures we achieved are pretty impressive. We are able to either upgrade your own ECU or we can supply you with a replacement engine management unit that you can change as and when you want to.

Power vs Torque. With the figures we have obtained here you will see we have come up against the perennial problem of power versus torque. While we could go down the route of ultimate power we have made the concious decision to tune a good balance between the two.

So how does this affect the car? Whereas horsepower determines how fast a vehicle can travel, torque at the wheels determines how quickly that speed can be reached. The greater the torque figure, the faster the acceleration!


Not sure if this will work for you; why not try before you buy? Come down in your 4C and see the performance difference back to back at our facility in the UK.
