Well 3 weeks since my last post on this thread, time flys on eh?
Only problems since last post are a flat battery, due to radio being left on
, still now weather has improved a little I am testing my new Michelin tyres and am very impressed so far, even on wet roads I can't (am to chicken to) get any understeer, the car just turns in so sharply, some of my favourite bends I keep creeping the speed up a little and my nerve goes before the 156 even feels loose, although I miss drifting the rear out on a rear wheel drive car, I am finding immense pleasure in the handling of the Alfa, I know that the V6 should understeer, but I can't see how on a public road anyone can see any benifit from having the twinny, which we are all told handles better, and it should, but when can you use that ability?
If I push my car and drive "spiritedly" it is would be doing 3 figure speeds in a flash, as with my mate in the Golf GTi, who says he can out handle the 156 through the bends, how can you, when your 1/2 a mile behind? The V6 punches past cars, its 40 - 70 is astounding, I remember overtaking in a line of traffic once, there were four cars in front of me, the second car in the line puulled out, I followed and before he was past the one car I was on the brakes and waiting for him to move out of the way... We were all travelling at the same speed , drop to third at 4K and floor it
My enthusiasm for the 156 is only getting more as I own the car, it just gets better and better, I am looking at replacing the intake from the airbox to the Plenumn soon, anyone got any tips?
I also fancy a stainless exhaust, anyone used this company?

Any feedback guys? And which tailpiipe to go for
It seems a good buy if its even reasonable quality, my car definetly lost performance when I changed to back box, and this system only has one box......
See you all soon Guys
