A week with a new 156
finally I replaced my old 156 with a new one, facelifted, with a 2.0 TS engine. After a week driving her, I noticed some details:
- The gearbox is different compared to the old one. I think it has a bit higuer gear ratios. Maybe is the same gearbox on the 2.0 JTS engine.
- Plastics quality is a lot better!
- One front bulb was missing! (the dealer will install it)
- It has no factory alarm.
- The window switches mounting on the driver side is misaligned.
This makes me think if the bad quality reputation of Alfa is more related to the dealers/importers...
