156 2.5 V6 Q-System to SWAP/SELL
I am not sure which forum to put this in so any mod please feel free to move it.
I recently bought a 2.5 V6 Q-System auto but will be needing to sell or swap it as I have just aquired a new job that is a 75 mile a day round trip and the fuel consumption on this is not exactly what I need.
It is a Dec 99 (V) 2.5 V6 24V with the Q-System Auto which also has the manual "H" gate option. The mileage is 105,000 and has had a lot of work done to it. Had the cambelt, tensioners and idlers done at 92k including a new water pump (metal impella). It has also had a new radiator and air-con pump recently as well as a full service.
It has a DAB digital radio/CD/MP3 player with a Blaukpunkt Sharkfin DAB roof mounted aerial, a Sony Ericcson hands free kit installed that mutes the radio etc with a roof mounted mic. The interior is fitted with the Alfa Recaro cloth seats which are in excellent condition with only slight marking to the drivers seat. The silver bodywork is also in very good condition with no rust, just a few small dings here and there which are hardly noticible. All the electrics are in full working order including all 4 electric windows.
I have all the manuals and 2 red keys that both work along with a stack of bills as this was owned the past 3 years by a mature mechanic.
I would ideally like to swap it for a 2LTR model of similar age and condition but would accept a cash offer providing I can replace it, if not I will keep it for now. Will also consider other models, i.e. BMW, Audi etc but would prefer an Alfa as im in love with my 156 and it will break my heart if I have to lose it and not get another.
I really don't want to lose this car as it is one of the best I have seen for its age and condition and I have seen a few before I bought it. If you are interested, leave a message here or send me a PM. I will try to get some pictures up tomorrow if I get time and the car is located in Leeds.
