Darren, it actually looks like quite a good buy mate to be honest, especially with the FSH and cambelt change.
The cambelt change is a costly son of a gun on Alfa's so getting one with a recent change or budgeting to have one done yourself is detrimental to buying an Alfa.
Now as far as I was aware, the Veloce was like the 'Sport' version of the 156, meaning it came with that fancy kit, those alloys, that spoiler, black dials, and the sports suspension.
Although I can't be certain, I'm still using SP's,
For £3000 it would be great, but don't pay any more than that for it, £3K would be my limit anyway, as you can find same spec'd ones that are just a bit older for £2000 anyway. But hey, if you want a newer 156 then fair enough, but you will be paying an extra grand or so just because it's new.
In regards to the 156 though, it looks pretty decent, even if that dodgy plate puts people off,
It would me to be honest. Can you get the full reg off him to do an insurance check etc? It goes in alright does it?
"That's what she said."
