Rather than start hundreds of threads ill stick all mtg "newbie" Q's in one place
Got the car a couple of days ago - its a 2000, 1.8 156 Sportswagon and so far so good - its a nice enjoyable drive that seems to jump into life when you plant your foot
and gotta say im impressed having previosly had a 318 touring.
Anyway a few questions for you knowledgable peeps
My car has the 16" teledial alloys - What "upgrade" options are available / what size / other manafacturers alloys can be fitted ?
Ride height seems somewhat high and whilst the suspension seems ok it does seema littyle wallowy compared with the stiffness of 318 - dont get me wrong , it gets round corners ok but just wondering how you can tell if you have "sports" suspension or standard.
My car has the blue leather momo interior with the Alfa badge embrodered / embossed on the seat - i havent seen many others with the badge on so was this an upgrade option or does it denote anything ?
Oil - i have a ton of receipts with the car which say the oil has been changed every 5k miles - is this the norm ? and whats the best oil to use ?
Finally (for the time being lol), Does anybody know of any alfa specialst and main dealers in the derby area ?
Sorry for all the questions but i'm completely new to alfas - only chanced upn the 156 wagon by mistake and im glad i did
