Re: Some questions about 156.
[QUOTE=theReaperUK;1871600]Hello, i am soon to get an alfa romeo 156 2.0 JTS Tourismo (2002, face lift version) and would like to clear some questions up, So all help would be helpfull.
Will my model have the brake pipe problem i've read about?
check the car before you buy, it is not a hugely known problem but it exists on earlier models.
Does my model have the bonnet problem (flips up at speeds and does damage to bonnet/windscreen)?
haha.. you should just call your local alfa to check if that is for your model and if so they replace for free but it's simple just close the bonnet as you are supposed to (drop it from 20cm+)
I read somewhere about black cam belt pulleys braking, again does my model have this problem?
with regular servicing i can't really see that as an issue.
Make sure you are aware of the service history.
And is there other problems i should be aware of?
don't focus on these very fine issues.
the 156 will repay you all your debts when you start the engine and drive so just do it.
p.s don't buy a ford
