It's a 2000 'W' 2.0 TS, with 128,500 on the clock. MoT until January '12 and tax until the end of June this year. Good earlier history, and bought from a forum member who did the belts, water pump and some other bits and pieces. I have photos of this work but no other proof. I've had the front suspension arms done, and recently put two new rear tyres on.
It has the black leather interior with CD-changer, and everything works apart from the air-con which could do with a re-gas.
The car's finished in red, which is in good condition apart from the boot lid and the rear bumper which are a bit faded / some clear coat issues on the boot lid.
It is what it is, a ten-year-old car with some scars of life. It looks good, goes well and appears to have no issues. I check the oil religiously and it's using very little. I've been doing around 700 miles a week in it for months, with no issues at all. Starts on the button, idles nicely. All round nice car for the age and money (i.e. not much).
Why am I parting with it? I also have a 159 Ti and I can't justify running both of them, and the purpose for which the 156 was bought (as a motorway mile-muncher) has been addressed.
If you are looking for a cheap runaround, drop me a PM? I am also interested in a swap or p/x for a trail bike.
UPDATE: Annoyingly, I've managed to break the fuel-cap release (don't ask) so the flap now, er, flaps.
Sadly the 156 is not as valuable as it should be relative to the cars for sale of the same year.These forums are great for the keen Alfa fan so if its a good one it will sell. Im buying a wreck of a 156 in bottle green tomorrow for £350 but it has a good engine and good selespeed system ideal to use the parts to restore a 147.The bones will make 150 in the scrap yard.
