Re: help buying156 - age vs mileage
Oil consumption is the key issue here, I have a 99 selespeed with 120k on the clock (and I am old but not an old driver) Oil use is zero to nothing. I refresh once a year (with castrol 10w60) and the engine is fantastic. Take care with the belts and tensioners, wishbones etc. I still have the original exhaust except the front piece with the flexible part (they die at about 100k) the 156 likes front brakes and tyres, but I manage 50k
after all these years my car is still a head turner and a joy to drive !
