Just like to introduce myself, got an Alfa 156 jtd multijet on a 53 plate, its the facelift model in metallic very dark grey, looks and drives luuuuverlerly.
Extremley pleased with the car, much nicer car than my old Passat which expired after 85000 miles (german reliability, my a#se, not quite sure why I bothered getting the oil changed at each 5000).
I have a bit of a motorcycle habit, Fireblade
, 350ypvs (remember them!) and a CR250 crosser for the winter.
Just a couple of questions:
The car has done 53k, I plan on having the timing bellt done at the next service, should I automatically have the waterpump changed at the same time.
I have only one key for the 156, I have got my eye on one in e-bay which will need re-coding and will need another spade putting on it.
Any idea where I can get a blank key spade so I can have it cut to match the only one I have, and do I have any other option than going to the Alfa dealership to get it recoded?
All the best
