Back to 156's
I've just said my goodbyes to the Brera forum (too painful to go into it again here..) and I've now bought a 99 reg 156 2.5 V6 as a runabout for the next year or so.
I bought it today from Veloce's in Barnet for £1400 which they were selling as part of a customer trade-in. It seems to have had a good life and has a complete Alfa service history including recent cam belt change. Bit of minor damage on the rear wing that I will get sorted soon but otherwise in good nick..
What an engine the V6 is! It might have some dire fuel consumption figures but as I'm not going to be doing large mileages it will be more than bearable. It sounds as an Alfa should as well. I liked my diesel Brera but the 4,500 rev limiter and taxi sound can't compare to the V6.
Let's hope I've bought a good one..
