new alfa buyer what shud i look for?
hi i am interested in purchasing a 156 or 166 alfa , however the problem i have is that i see a lot of them that have engine failures at very low mileages, so was just wondering what is the most reliable spec one to buy , ie what year , what engine , what model , or is it throughout the range , that have catrastrophic failures and should not buy one of these cars at all ever , just seems to me , that there are too many problems possibly with this engine , ? but maybe does not apply to maybe a v6 or 2.0? but could be wrong , so any pointers in teh right direction would be greatfully appreciated, cos i dont have a bottomless pit of cash to throw at a car if it kept going wrong
many thks in advance
