Re: Been offered a 156 2.0 JTS Lusso
Sounds reasonable, the JTS is a good motor, doesn't have the character of a Twin Spark, but is better in all other respects. Price sounds OK as well depreciation is a killer on 156's, I would not expect to get much more than that for my Veloce 2 (March 03, 24k Miles). Check it's had the 12K service and where it was sold as new from. Lot's of 156's were imported, but by the time that one was registered that had become less common so it will probably be a UK car. Look for the Chassis number etched on e Glass, and the red and white security number stickers.
Check the spec is correct, some 156's were delivered short on equipment, veloce's without rear elec windows and such like.
A lusso should have Leather, 4 elec windows, dual zone CC, 16" alloys, but not the lowered suspension and side skirts. If it's got 17" wheels be carefull as it seems to ruin the handling on a Car without Sports suspension.
Good luck with it.
