I'm Leaving, The 156 is getting replaced...what's it worth.....?
Had the 156 for about 9 months, but the time has come to part with it due to new work mileage commitments and the offer of a mint 03 A4 tdi 130 se for trade price from a dealer friend of the family.
Very much enjoyed owning my 156 after always wanting one. Never had any major issues, and will be sorry to see her go.
Getting the bottom steering bush done and a full service in the next week or so then she will be on sale. I think i know what she is worth but what do you lot think?
-2001 Y plate 156 1.8 CF3 TS veloce
-101k miles with full mostly dealer history
-Metallic Black with tan momo leathers.
-Interior mint with Ipod Pioneer head unit
-Outside, pretty good, no rust, a few bumper scuffs and the mandatory skits starting to coming loose, but nothing bad overall, polishes up a treat.
-teledials from a 2005 car in very good condition with very new dunlops on the front and newish tyres on the back
-cam belt done 15k ago at a main dealer, variator starting to get a little noisy though
-Front ARB done in Oct last year
-Thermostat done in Jan this year
-AC blows nice and cold
-Both keys reconditioned by Chris when i got the car
-MOT to Jul'10
-Faded bonnet badge replaced for a new one
-drivers side door handle and rear window mechanisms rebuilt late last year
Overall a nice 156 in very good mechanical condition, with a few minor cosmetic issues. Piccys on my profile if you want a look.
So what do we think she is worth? I'm open to offers at this point for a quick sale but not in a huge rush, still trying to convince the missus to get rid of hers and keep the Alfa, but so far she inst biting!
