156 JTS Lusso Sele
Just got back after travelling almost the entire length of the country with a 156 Sele JTS Lusso model of which there are apparently 9 left. Over 300 miles and it didn't skip a beat. The sele engages and works as it should which was my major concern.
Its a bit rough and needs some tlc but does have a FSH, recent belts and 47k on the clock, so i cannot complain.
Will post some pictures later.
Initial jobs are wishbones (got the typical 156 clunking and advisories on MOT) and fix a rear window that's not working. Also its loosing a little coolant which will need further investigation. I don't think its anything too serious as the temps all the way home were spot on. Also quite a few cosmetic bits and a good t-cut required. Hopefully thats all, but i guess they'll be more as I work through everything.
I was actually pleasantly surprised with the JTS engine coming from a GTA. Don't get me wrong its no Busso, but if you rev it up, its got some poke!
This is stop gap so will be fixing up, driving it and then possibly selling it...
P's. Can anyone tell me why it's a 56 plate but has the old style nose and also why it has the Bose upgrade. Was this an option as I thought it was GTA only...
