Neil is the boyfriend of Emma Karwacki who has a Tipo 16V. If you tell he that you are a member of the Tipo 16V owners club and you found his number from this web site then he may give you 10% off labour.
Neil also says that a Cambelt and balancer shaft belt change should cost no more £125 + VAT including parts (plus bearings if necessary). The balancer shaft belt is available through (DAYCO) at a fraction of the cost of a Fiat belt. DAYCO is owned by Fiat and makes the belts for Fiat.

Avanti have been tuning Fiats and Lancias since 1977 and can offer probably the largest range of performance parts for Italian cars in the Uk. They have a vast knowledge and experience and above all a diehard enthusiasm for going faster and keeping whats left on the road! These are some of the components that Avanti can supply for the Tipo 16V:
The rest of the car is in standard form. This will allow them to determine which bits such as cooling, braking, suspension need to be upgraded.

These are Lancia Integrale specialists who know a lot about tuning.
They also work on the FIAT Tipo 16V since the powertrain and engine are
essentially a Lancia Thema. They also stock the things you have trouble
finding elsewhere such as ignition modules.
These are Fiat specialists and Abarth agents. They also know about
the 16V Tipo which, as most of us will have found out, FIAT garages
typically don't. They are very well
established and often offer advice and help without any cost. They are
trained Fiat technicians and you often find them advertised in
Auto Italia magazine. If possible speak to Jeff.

These guys are extremely helpful and knowledgeable. They sell the following
items for the FIAT Tipo:
|Lowered Springs||Lowers car by 30mm and cost £149 (Part# F02.70.130)|
|Interior Kit||This is a 17 part kit that sticks over the existing interior. It is available in Briarwood, Mahogany, Aluminium, Carbon Fibre or Titanium Look and costs £120. It is unfortunately only available for 5 door Tipos although I'm not sure how different the interiors are. Maybe some of the 5 door interior would fit in the 3 door?|
|Exhaust Systems||These are SuperSprint systems which are true OEM replacements. They also have Catalytic converter replacements which add several bhp.|
These are both MS Design products. One fits on the roof above
the rear tailgate complete with brake light and costs
£145 (Part# F02DF/11).
The other fits half way up the rear tailgate without a brakelight and costs £120 (Part# F02HFT).
Again these are MS Design products. A replacement front bumper costs £200 (Part# F02V), a replacement rear
bumper costs £145 (Part# F02H) and a pair of side skirts £230 (Part# F02LR). Buying
the whole lot together saves £55 bringing the total price to
£520. Please note the rear roof spoilers are extra. Apparently the bodykit accepts the SuperSprint exhaust.
KW Tuning make the the so called "Tipo Provocatione" kit.
The total width of the Tipo with this kit 193 cm! They also have tyre/wheel
combinations for this body kit. The front has 225/50R15 and the rear
is rear 285/40R15. See the
gallery for more pictures.
This Austrian company makes exhausts for the Tipo 16V.
