Alfa 156 - questions on facelift model
Hi folks -
Thinking about getting a 156 Selespeed, preferably a Sportwagon but may just settle on a saloon.
I've read that there was a facelift around June 2002, and wondered if you could help answer a couple of questions?
 I would have thought that buying a 52 plate onwards [ie Sep 2002 onwards] would mean you'd get the facelift model, but I've seen a few late 2002 [and even one 2003] 156 which seems to be the pre-facelift version eg black mirrors / bumper strips, no computer, non-digital climate, etc. Are these just old version cars that were sold off after the facelift models came out?
 do all facelift models have the steering wheel stereo controls, or just certain trim levels?
 same as , but about dual climate control - do they all have it? It's a must for me to be able to have two different temperatures available for driver / front passenger
 are there any other changes to the facelift model above these:
- paddle selespeed instead of buttons
- coloured mirrors / bumper strips
- computer on top of dash
- digital climate controls
- steering wheel stereo controls
Great to get some answers, and also any advice on what to look out for when examining a possible purchase?
