........you can get 33 rolled up turfs in the rear of a 156 sportswagon with relative ease, I have to say handling wasnt great on the way home from B&Q's, cornering left something to be desired. But I was impressed never the less.
All i have to do now is spend all day with the vacuum cleaner getting rid of the dirt and no-one will ever know.
Some time ago I managed to get somewhere between a 1/4 & 1/2 tonne of pee gravel (in plastic sacks!) home in my 156 saloon.
Evenly distributed around the front & rear footwells (except for the drivers footwell).
Have you got the novimat suspension on the rear. Looking forward to testing ours out!!
to be honest.... i dont know, it's a veloce but i dont know if its standard on this model, it did seem higher when i got home than when i loaded it up which is a feature (i believe) of the novimat but i did reverse onto the drive which may have an effect.
