Had my 156 (second car for commuting) for a few weeks now. So far.....
2 front upper arms
OSF wheel bearing (bloody thing still makes the same noise - from the OSF!!!)
Front discs and pads
Rear discs and pads
Timing belt, tensioner and idler
Water pump (precautionary whilst doing belt!)
Variator repair kit - no more diesel-like noises on cold start.
Radweld in radiator (started weeping after I did the water pump, grrr!!!), new radiator on order!!
Wondering why.... time has obviously clouded out all the painful memories of my old Alfasud and it's problems, leaving me with a rose-tinted memory of fun which has ruined my current ability to apply logic, hahaha.
I work in a garage, I ought to know better....!!!
