156 1.8 Turismo

Facelift 156


Thinking of changing my 156 in the near future to one of the exterior facelifted versions.Currently got a 1999
2 litre twinny and i am loath to change her.
She has just behaved impeccably the last 7 days over all sorts of terrain in deepest Inishowen in Donegal.
Boy,she loves the B roads.

Any advice on what 156 to get....any to avoid....heard grumblings about the JTS.

Are they any better than the pre facelifted versions ??

Don't mind getting a model even from 2003.

Any thoughts ?

If you're sorta put off buying a JTS and there is no facelift V6 you would need to want a diesel

The JTS... is very hit and miss...

If you get one, give it to a respected alfa guy to check it over pre-purch....

if u can afford it and a nice one pops up, my money is on the v6/manual... The arese v6 is all alfa, and in truth, a superior engine with little problems cf either the TS or JTS engine.

be careful. I almost got caught out buying a POS JTS, dodged that bullet.
