i'm new here but can't resist the thought of getting an alfa
Currently have an old peugeot ( ughhhh) and previous to that an e36 3-series bmw, which was a great car to drive , if a bit under powered.
noticed a 2001 156 2.0 petrol veloce spwagon with 111k on the clock that looks quite reasonable for 1.5k.
the fact it has selespeed scares me (having read the various horror stories) , but before I go and see it , is there anything that I should checklist beforehand?
156 and the rust seem to be close allies, so Ive made a note to look for damp footwells, rusty floorpans, suspicious underseal .....
the last cambelt change was almost 40k ago, so I guess i need to factor in a cambelt + variator change? (is the cambelt change interval 36k not 60k?)
I also need to get a decent size fender twin guitar amp in the boot occasionally, but notice the rear space is a little......'cramped'. Does anyone know the minimum width in the boot?
anything else I've forgotten?
