Back behind the wheel of a 156 Sportwagon

Despite my name, we no longer have two Alfa 33's, my sons sold them a few years ago. Just bought a blue 2001 model Series 1, 156 Sportwagon 2.0 Selespeed with only 54000kms. We used to have a silver 2000 year model that we traded in for a 159 in 2005, so its some time since I drove a 156. The 159 was sold two years ago and I was missing the responsivness of the 156. It is black leather inside. First job I did yesterday was clean up the black gunk on the centre surround of the Selespeed gear stick. I am missing the rear cargo blind for which I will have to go on a search in the marketplace, but aprt from that it is a beauty. It had the timing belt changed 5 years ago at 29000 kms but I will change it again for insurance. Very happy with it so far . Fingers crossed Selespeed behaves it self. Wondering if the selespeed hydraulic oil should be changed. Any advice on this or any other aspects of 156 ownership will be appreaciated.

1974 Spider 2000- being restored - still but getting closer
2006 159 2.2 - the wife's No longer in the stable
1971 1750 GTV Junior -latest aquisition waiting it's turn to be restored
No 33's anymore.

Belts due at 36,000 miles or 36 months, whichever comes 1st so I'd make that the priority. Good luck, hope it's a good 'un!
