Re: I'm new... any tips on buying a 156 2.0 Veloce?
As with any twin spark engine, I'd look for signs that its been run low on oil. Check the oil level before you test drive it, and listen out for rattles from the engine. Ask the seller how often they check the oil, and if they have any receipts etc - if they do have a read and see if low oil has ever been noted. TS engines can use up to 1 litre of oil per 1000 miles, so they can easily have been run dry if basic maintenance has been ignored...which is expensive! Good luck.
