bit of advise please.
I am looking at buying a 156 1.8 TS. It has only 36,000miles and is on a 51 plate. The car has been serviced and stamped up by Mangoletsi. I called my local service centre (Central in Dudley, West Mids) about cam belt changes and they stated 3yrs / 36,000 miles. Nothing in the service history mentions a cambelt change so I called Mangoletsi and was told 5years/ 72,000miles.
So from first registration the car will be 5 years in Jan 07. How do you think I stand if the cambelt lets go before Jan 07 ?
The car also has a couple of little niggles (well it is an Alfa), air con not blowing cold, nsr window not working, osr window very slow, looks like it needs discs and pads all round and will need tyres all round in the not too distant future. Oh yeah also due a service.
What sort of price should I be looking at paying. It is in nice overall condition, veloce model with leather.
