For sale: 156 jtd sw f/lift * spares or repair *


It is with a heavy heart that I have to put Gina up for sale. The clutch has gone and I can't warrant the cost, considering the overall condition of her.

She is a runner and MOTd so here are the pros and cons:

The clutch has gone.
The front lower wishbones are shagged.
The rear suspension is sagging.
The rear wiper doesn't work.
The A/C wants recharging.
The bodywork is full of character! (See pictures)
Mileage shows 122K but is probably nearer 165K. (She had new speedo at about 45K under warranty).
She's a bit tired :-(

MOT till September 2016.
Runs, idles etc no problem.
With a decent clutch she goes like the clappers.
140PS engine
6spd Gearbox.
Last of the facelift models, so has all the bells and whistles.
Infocentre works perfectly, no pixelation when hot.
Climate control works perfectly (not withstanding the A/C wants charging).
Steering wheel audio controls work except the 'mute'.
Seats all good, just want a good clean.
Dealer serviced for first 5 odd years, then looked after by Mick @ Mobitech (Canterbury).
ONLY used Genuine Alfa oil filters and oil.
I have had her serviced every 12 months.
Genuine wheel bearing OSR Dec 2013.
Front tyres 7 monts old.
Front exhaust downpipe welded up November.

Can't think of any more, to be honest. She has been uber reliable for the 5 years I've had her - and have probably clocked up about 80K faultless miles.

Let me know if you're interested. Offers invited.

She is immobile (because of the clutch) and is parked in a decent street in Dover.


Why do we fall in love with these pieces of tin !

Lots of pictures here:

Presumably it's a diesel? 16v jtdm?

And a ball park price may help...
