As I've recently changed jobs and am now working locally, I'm potentially looking at selling the car to cut some costs (insurance etc that I'll be paying when hardly using the car makes no sense as travel to work will be by bike now - 5 min ride! \o/)
Yes, I will miss her terribly if I do sell, but needs must and all that, although I've sworn - every car I own from here on in, will be an Alfa <3
This being the land of love for Alfa's and all that, figured best place to check this out, if it's worth it I'll put in classifieds here before anywhere else as I'd rather she went to a "proper" home :-)
156 1.8 Twin Spark, Black, Camel Leather Interior (yum!)
100k on clock
Part service history, only 3 owners (inc me) from new.
Gorgeous interior with a couple of very minor wear marks.
5/6 Months Tax & MOT
It's an Alfa, awesome drive!
Pretty certain needs new MAF sensor and thermostat (about £50 total off the right people!) once warmed up, no issues, but stuttery from cold (first thing in mornings atm) drives perfectly after this, typical woman, grumpy in the morning I guess
Minor damage to front passenger side bumper where some idiot reversed into me in the car park (soft impact as I managed to stop smashing into it!), will put up pics, but wing is slightly out (not hanging on the floor!) so will need re-aligning etc and spraying as has chunk of the paint about the size of your palm missing).
Rest of body work in awesome condition, some minor light marks around the key lock where some numpty obvioulsy couldn't aim (not me) these are v.small, and looks like the drivers side wing mirror housing was resprayed at some point for some reason before my time, probably clipped by a passing car etc.
Alloys in average condition (how I got it unfortunately) obviously work fine, but could use recoating or replacing eventually.
Brake Discs - need new.
Sticking caliper drivers side front brake (resulting in a "clunk" when you brake.
And er, little L shaped bracket underneath the car that attaches to the exhaust and main chasis (guessing as an aditional stabaliser for it?) needs re-welding to the exhaust.
I'll get photo's up soon, but wanted to gauge interest and see whether it was worth selling or whether I should just declare her SORN for a while. I think these are only minor issues, and regardless of these I've not had any down time with her at all.
