Back to Alfa ownership soon!
Hi. I used to come on this forum as my wife had a 2000 reg 156 2.4jtd saloon. However, we separated and she kept the Alfa. I had our other car, a 2001 Audi A4. Looks like she made the right choice as her Alfa is still going strong and the engine on my diesel Audi blew up at the weekend! It was on 202k miles but just goes to show all cars have issues.
The upside of this is that I'm now in the position that I can look at my own 156 as I certainly miss Alfa ownership. I'm after a 2.4jtd sportwagon this time. I don't have a huge budget but enough to buy something reasonable. I can probably stretch to an early facelift model but I suppose condition and service history is more important. I've looked on autotrader and eBay but there's not a lot about at the moment. I would like to buy privately if possible from an enthusiast. I suppose it's just a case of waiting for the right one to come long.
