About Bootlid Tailgate Reflective Panels

The Alfa Romeo reflective bootlid tailgate panel is usually located above or below the vehicle’s tailgate and is made of a sturdy foamed plastic layer covered with a red reflective layer. The Alfa Romeo reflective bootlid tailgate panel is attached to the rear of the vehicle using either bolts or a special plastic adhesive.  Its function is to alert other road users of your presence when driving in the dark, and the red colour of the Alfa Romeo reflective bootlid tailgate panel indicates to other drivers that they are looking at the rear of the vehicle, as red lights and reflectors are typically used on the rear of the vehicle and white lights on the front of the vehicle. 

Because of the material of the Alfa Romeo reflective bootlid tailgate panel, it’s possible that it may become scratched or broken. If this occurs, you will need to remove the panel’s bolts or adhesive to replace the reflective panel.  Some people also prefer to remove the Alfa Romeo reflective bootlid tailgate panel for cosmetic reasons.  As well as this modification, some vehicle owners instead prefer to tint the reflective panel to a tone which is more suited to their vehicle bodywork.

Alfa Romeo trivia

  • US President John F. Kennedy was a big fan of the Alfa Romeo, and would often be seen racing on Washington streets in his Alfa Romeo Giuletta Spider.
  • The first-ever F1 driver’s championship happened in 1950, and it was won by Giuseppe Farina thanks to the lightning-quick Alfa Romeo he was in. A history of Grand Prix racing served Alfa Romeo well for that first Formula 1 race, but they stopped being involved in the competition back in 1988 until making a return in 2019.
  • Alfa is an acronym, standing for Anonima Lombarda Fabbrica Automobili, but few people are aware of where the word Romeo came from. It’s actually the surname of the Italian engineer Nicola Romeo, who bought the company as WWI was raging.
  • The Italian Job was famous for its use of the Mini Cooper, but the police in the film might very well have beaten Michael Caine on the flat with their Alfa Giulia Supers.
  • In 1933, the Italian government ‘acquired’ Alfa Romeo, and they kept their hold on it until 1986. That’s when Fiat bought the company and the government had no choice but to let it go.
