Re: 156 Sportwagon Info
Thank you for all the helpful advice, it appears the 156 shares a few common problems with integrales (maybe even more fragile if not serviced regularly / correctly?). The cambelt and bottom end problems especially, does the 156 use the same Lampredi 2L block as the rest of the cars from the Fiat / Alfa / Lancia range?
I am aware that any car over 3-4 years old will start to show signs of wear and tear (you don't want to know of of the problems I have had with my 3.7 A8....!!!).
I am a mechanically minded, having built rally cars for the last 10 years so a little grease work doesn't worry me, but the car will be mainly used by the wife as we have a child on the way. I was thinking that a 156 SW would be practical / comfortable and a good looking bus too.
I am going to look / test drive / buy an SW tomorrow evening, I will let you how I get on.... or not.
Again, many thanks.
