Hi guys, I've just come to the end of my years ownership of my 156 2.5 v6 ... and loved every minute of it.
I've just bought a GTA (finally
) and so have to sell the 2.5 v6 with a heavy heart. Poured a lot of love into that thing in what seems like a short year.
So basically, the point of this thread, was to get people's opinions on how much I should sell it for. I would like it to sell,....but I'm not going to give it away....especially after doing the following all whilst owning it this last year;
4 x new tyres @ £300 - 2 months old?
New brakes (pads and shoes) @ £267 - Done last week
New cambelt / metal waterpump / lower pulley (had got twisted) change @ £680
New front pipes (exhaust) @ approx £180
12 month MOT. Full leather...air con works...everything works. Apart from once or twice the indicators has refused to come on for a bit...(bit of alfa ness).
The previous owner kept it garaged, so the bodywork is mint...it really looks stunning still. Also, it has the carbon fibre dash, rather than the dodgy looking wooden one! 6 speed manual gearbox, clutch and gearbox tight as you like.
Also, it has full service history. And, I mean it. About 3 inches of solid paperwork...many many receipts for all sorts of work over the years. It has certainly not been neglected.
I paid £1,690 last year...and spent all this money maintaining it...I'd like to get back what I paid for it....and I think anyone that would take it, would have a damn good car for the money. But I am possibly slightly biased
Oh...the only real downside, it's pretty high miles...around 128k on an S reg (1998).
Do you think it's realistic to ask around £1600?
Looking on ebay etc, there's loads of cheaper ones...but...I doubt they have been maintained that well...in fact most of them, are just for spares and repairs...and still going for around £500? I'm 99% sure that this car will just run for a year, and need nothing spending on it...so reluctant to give it away.
Would love to hear your views. Cheers, Olly
