My Alfa upgrade questions.

Hi all,

I've had a 156 2.0 TS Selespeed Saloon for a while and want to upgrade to a 147 2.0 TS Lusso. It's an 2002 reg, and my question is,

Is there anything in particular I should watch out for with this model at this age? certain probelms or faults, areas to inspect closly?

All mechanics and suspension are essentially the same on the 147 as the 156, so you can probably guess the areas to check....belt history, suspension bushes front and rear.....

Seem to be more instances of 147 door-stay problems - but probably only on the 3-door where the bigger door imposes more strain...

Nothing else on the 147 that I can think of that is a particular issue.....enjoy!
