Alfa 156 2.0 jts Head issues
i was a previous alfa 156 owner, which i do not own any more due to upgrading to my 2005 saab 9-3 1.9tid, which i must say hasnt stepped a foot wrong especially on the motorway journeys.... anyway this isnt a saab review, lol,
i have been offered a red 2004 alfa romeo 156 2.0 jts selespeed buy a neighbour of mine and i am considering this, just wanted to know what the implications were to fixing the vehicle for road use. the car is in absolute mint condition, and spec'd with leather and the usual kit....
he had a head gasket issue and now the engine has no compression... what would the average cost be to get this fixed and also what are the possible outcomes of this... just weighting up my options....
i would probably fix it and leave it in the family for someone to drive, but on that note, i am also looking to upgrade my saab to something else, and since i am so fond of my car, i have heard that the 159 1.9 jtmd is also the same engine, and i am contemplating on having a look at one of them....
any info and opinion is welcome,
