My Alfa Romeo 155, 2.0 16v T.Spark in Rosso Red, registered in 1997 on a P-plate, with approx. 90k miles. Photo’s to follow.
As well as all the usual items, i.e. 15” alloys, the car has a factory electric sunroof and rear sunblinds.
The 1st owner was Alfa Romeo GB who passed it on to Lyles of Newcastle, franchised dealer at that time, who then sold it to a local Alfa enthusiast. This gentleman was in his 70’s and traded the car in to Lyles in 2003 (I think) which is when I bought it.
The bad points!
It is an 11 year old car so obviously there are a few marks. Most significant are a small dent on the bonnet, just above the grill where some cretin pushed a wheelie bin on to it and the usual minor corrosion on the rear wheelarches. Paint lifting but certainly not terminal. I have made no attempt to hide these faults from any prospective buyer.
The car also has a broken drivers door mirror though I will include a spare and a box of bits to replace it, as well as a aerosol paint can of Rosso 130. BTW, the box of bit probably has enough parts in it to build up a complete mirror as a spare (or eBay it, your choice).
At present, the car has no tax or MoT but I’ll be putting it in over the next few days. I will tax the car for whoever buys it and will update once the car passes the MoT.
There is also the usual fault with the central locking. The car does lock but only from the passenger door. PM me if you want more details.
The car has recently had:
New front discs and pads
New rear pads
New 155 Sportpack suspension springs (All 4, new & genuine Alfa Romeo parts)
I was intending to change the cambelt but I will leave this to the new owner so I don’t have to pass the cost on. However, I will include an SKF timing belt kit and the cam locking tools.
I need to sell as I need a van for a business venture. Therefore, I am prepared to accept any reasonable offer. I’ve been offered £300 as a trade-in with no MoT. I’d prefer to see the car go to someone on here so the first person to offer me that or the best offer near it will get a great car.
NOT included with the car are the following items.
Whoever buys the car will get the first refusal on these items before they go on eBay.
16” Alfa Romeo 155 Sportpack, Speedline 5-spoke wheels in white. I bought these new, specially ordered in from Italy by Lyles of Newcastle. These are the last set of these wheels that Alfa Romeo had. They are in my garage at present and I think they need 1 tyre replacing.
Prowler stainless steel rear silencer. Good quality item, made in France. Not the usual boy racer stuff.
Prowler stainless steel manifold, similar to SuperSprint. This manifold is actually for the 156 T.Spark but should fit the 155 with modification to the cat pipe mounting plate.
I’d prefer not to resort to eBay so any sensible offers considered. PM me regarding these parts if you want but remember I will be giving whoever buys the car, the first opportunity to make an offer.
