156 buying advice please
Hi guys - i am soon to be a second time alfa owner - but your advise would be very welcome.
I used to own a 156 2.0ts selespeed - beautiful to drive - but it had its faults and I had to sell (at a profit though!).
Anyway, me and the mrs are after a second car and although i know the 1.6 is a little under powered, any thoughts would be welcome on the deal i have brokered myself.
I have found a 2001 51 plate 1.6ts in red with 41,000 miles on the clock, but described as "due a service".
Its in excellent condition, apart from a medium sized dint in the driver's door.
No rust, new gear box fitted at 36,000 miles.
When is this car due its "major" service - and is it generally cheaper than the same job on the 156 2.0ts?
Should I be trying to get it cheaper than £1200? (Got them down from £1600 to £1200 before viewing).
I am having to travel 100 miles to take a proper look so any advice and help would be appreciated.
Thankyou very kindly
