Need help on buying a 155 .... please

I've had 2 Alfa 33's now and I would like a bigger car.
Looking at the classifieds lately i've noticed the 155's are really reasonable,i'm after a V6, as an Alfa specialist freind has steered me away from the 1.8 & 2.0 twinsparks because of the problems with the tensioners and cambelts. My only concern with the V6 is that I have heard of problems with overheating.
I'm looking for a widebody but would be interested to hear from anybody about any of the three engines.
Lastly are there any specialists in the South West that you would recommend as the people I used to use don't exist anymore.

I'm interested too. 2.5 V6 as well. It seems the insurance is about the same for the 2.5 as it is for the 2.0 (about 1500 for me) so that kinda swung it.

Insurance is a funny thing for sure, I was actually quoted 200 less on a V6 than on a 16V Twin-Spark....that sort of made my mind up for me........

On the overheating problem, I've never had it (although I haven't had the car long so I'm touching wood here). The engine seems to take a good while to get up to temperature and while it does sort of run 'hot' it never overheats. Maybe someone whose had a V6 for a while could comment? I'd be interested to hear.

Anyway, good luck guys [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]
