Buying a 156 Selespeed

Hi folks! Ive just popped across from the 146 forum on here. Im off to view a 156 selespeed tomorra. Looks fantastic and it has a very promising history....2000 plate, 58,000 on the clock, full service history, 1 owner from new, 12 months MOT and some tax. They're askin £1650 and may well take my 146 in p/x.

The whole selespeed thing is completely new to me as Ive only ever driven manual's so just after any adive on how reliable these cars are, what probelms I may expect in the future etc. Also are there any questions you recomend me askin the seller about the car in general?

Search this forum for 'selespeed', and read all about 'em!

Like anything, they can have their issues. When they go wrong / need attention it can be tricky to find someone that knows enough about them that can fix it without replacing major (read: expensive) components.

Price sounds a bit on the high side... Give the gearbox a thorough work out when you drive it.

Smaky's got a list of tests to perform on them when considering a purchase.
