155 1.8 16v

New Starter

Hello everyone.
First post on this forum although have used the 155 forum.
I bought my first Alfa in Nov last year. Its a P reg 155 1.8TS 16v with 70k and FSH.It was on its original cambelt when i got it so needless to say it was the first thing i got done. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]
Since then the bafflers in the back box went so ended up getting a complete new centre section. Now i can appreciate the noise this superb engine makes.
Things that need looking at in the near future include new rear tyres,the Goodyears are nearly down to the legal limit, and a full service.
BTW has anyone had trouble with the tracking as i have heard the front wheels can easily get knocked out of line?
Previous car? A Sierra! although i have previously had 5 Fiats.

Welcome to both ov ya [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

Not had any trouble with tracking going out of line but you have to watch the front tyre wear on 155's, they wear on the insides, lucky if I get 10k out of a pair.

If you do have them checked get the figures from Alfa first, some wheel alignment machines have different figures.
