2001 or 2004 model 156
Looking at buying another 156 and I have narrowed it down to 2 choices. Both with 1,8 TS.
2001 Model, before facelift. 150,000 kml. Abs no rust, full service and repair history. Near pristine condition with most of what generally needs replaceing done recently.
2004 Model. A lot more "dials and whistles" in this one. Beautifull car. Full service history. Cambelt needs changing within 1 year. No receipts for other parts that might have been upgraded so I am not yet sure just what will need doing in then near future. I does drive nicely though and feels "tight". 140,000 Klms. No rust or dings.
The 2004 is about double the asking price of the 2001.
What to do?
