1995 Alfa Romeo 155 Q4 2.0 turbo from Romania
Really good for calm down the BMW M3 owners
The front bumper is got loose
The turbine has a bolt that was throw in the exhaust.
The engine is going from 0 to 110 degrees to fast.
The car is amazing!!
It goes from 0 to 100 km/h in under 7 seconds.
If someone ever wants a fast, but not glamorous car, this is the ONE.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

It's nonsense!! Alfa Romeo 155 Q4 was made only between 1992 and 1993, and its only 2700 this cars, so how you're one can be from 1995??!!??!!??!!

Q4 to calm down M3 owners? how in the world?! 186 hp to 286 hp (model from same year) by the way if you have a Q4 its from 1992 and not from 1995 but you're an owner, of course you know it... cof cof...
Speaking of knowing something, do you have any idea why the engine temperature goes from 0 to 110 degrees too fast?Answer: because its supposed to! besides its it normal temperature, the engine is manufactured with the adding of sodium salts so that the thermal conduction can be made faster, optimizing refrigeration and faster rising of temperature when the engine is started. Alfa Romeo unique feature, used since then on some high performance models.
Hope you've learned something, from your 236 th Q4 lucky owner friend..

Contributor who suggested Q4 not available 1995 - not so.
The Q4 made it through to '96.
So the guy was right about his excellent car - and its date.

The model year is not the same as year of made :) in that contest model year is about looking of car because in 1996 was few little changes in looking of car body so...
Better learn something about AR :)

I used to work in a factory that manufactures turbocharger components. I'm baffled as to the reported problem, in your (grammatically fractured) parlance:
"The turbine has a bolt that was throw in the exhaust."
Assuming you mean turbocharger, when you say turbine (as the Q4 uses the Lancia Delta Integrale powertrain), there's no way a turbocharger can introduce a bolt into the exhaust stream.

Guys, guys, I am the owner of an Alfa 155 Q4 1996 model with wide body. I replaced my engine with a Lancia Delta HF Turbo Integrale Evolution 2 engine 1994 model. It has more power, and boosts up to 215 hp.
The car is great, because it has bigger manifold and some electrical changes. I adore this car, even though it's extremely heavy. My car is boosting around 255 hp.
