Hello there, unfortunately it has come to the time when I have to sell my pride and joy.
The car is a 1999 (S) Alfa Romeo 146 Junior with the 1.6 16v Twin Spark engine
The base spec of the car is
Front Electric Windows
Remote Locking, Alarm & Immobiliser
15" Alloy wheels
Front Fog Lights
Electric Heated Mirrors
The quicker steering rack and lowered suspension of the Ti
This car is unique though as it has been upgraded to Ti specification but retaining the pokey but surprisingly economical 1.6 engine.
So on top of the base spec it also comes with:
Full Tan MOMO leather with the Alfa logos printed into the seat backs (An optional extra even on the Ti)
Chrome interior door handles
Chrome speedo dial surrounds
15" "Teledial" alloy wheels
Rear electric windows
This car also comes with a JVC CD player, and upgraded door speakers. I will leave the Subwoofer wiring in the car but the sub will be removed unless i get very close to the asking price.
A bit about the car...
I bought the car in November 2009 with just 62000 miles all done by the 1 previous owner - a female doctor.
It had already had a cambelt done at approximately 40k, but i decided to replace it again at 63k, better safe than sorry!
It had full Alfa main dealer / specialist service history prior to my ownership, but after this it has been maintained by myself (no point working as a mechanic if your not going to use your skills!)
I can confirm though that all the parts I have needed for this car has come from a main Alfa dealer, even the Selenia 20k oil that I have changed every 6000 miles without fail.
Overall the car has been extremely reliable and should continue to be, I have done over 20000 miles in 18 months, it has always started on the key.
Parts that have been changed during my ownership are:
Oil & Filter (numerous times!)
All 8 Spark plugs which are now not due for another 50,000 miles
Cambelt & Tensioner
Clutch kit including replacement slave cylinder
Brake discs & Pads (Front & Rear)
Air Flow (MAF) Meter
Overall the bodywork is in excellent condition with only minor marks and blemishes expected of a car this age. It has no rust underneath as is common with these cars.
The car also has all 3 keys including burgundy master key
It is worth noting that this is a very healthy engine as it has been dyno'd at 137bhp (17 up from new, 13 down from a 2.0) with only an induction kit fitted
The car will be sold with 6 months tax and I believe the MOT is til October (will double check though) and if you would like a brand new MOT for peace of mind, this can be arranged. (I am that confident that the car would sail through once again)
I am looking for £1200 ono but I will not accept stupid offers. You will not find another car with the same spec OR as well maintained as this.
