Hey guys.... I am so upset with myself!!!! I was the owner of this amazing 156 sportwagon! For some dumb and really dumb reason which I still don't know what it is....I sold it
!!!! Well I then thought for another dumb reason that a Golf 3 GTI will be a good replacement car.....
Dumb! Well after some trouble I managed to find a guy kind enough to swap me, a silver 156 saloon V6 for my GTI!!!
It was almost the most exiting moment in my life! The 156 needed a clutch kit... well managed to get the guy to fit one of his second hand clutch kits lying around. After a long time the car was up and running and I got to test drive it
. Then the unexpected and worst thing ever happened!!!
as I was driving, the car sounded like it was backfiring and then just died! The engine cuted out
when I tried to start it it sounded like the camblet broke, got out checked but the camblet was still on .... eventualy we came to the conclusion that it skipped a few teeth and well.... it is just as good as the cambelt braking. The guy said he will check the car today and let me know. I don't know what to do since I can't manage to find any people in South Africa, where I am from, that supplies Alfa Romeo parts and spares! Only the agents and then 1 other guy who is not much cheaper than the stealers. I havebeen checking UK on google and it seems there are plenty of spare shops for Alfa. The problem is I don't know how to get the stuff here??? Anyone knows where in the whole world I can find really cheap new or used Alfa Romeo parts and spares with shipping to South Africa???
