Alfa 156 Sportwagon wanted

Hello All

My beloved 156 1.8 TS saloon was written off just before Christmas (it sustained an off side impact from some fool making a suicidal overtaking manoeuvre , I walked out uninjured but the car is no more...). I've just signed up in the hope of securing a replacement sportwagon from like-minded individuals and would be very interested to hear from anyone with something suitable for sale.

Having received the payout from the insurers, I'm now looking for a sportwagon in Alfa red (rather than metallic burgundy) - at this stage I have no particular preference for engine size. When buying the 156 I tried both 2.0 and 1.8 litre 156 saloons and found the larger engine much more torquey, I don't know whether the 1.6 is underpowered for the heavier bodied sportwagon (perhaps an owner could comment please?).

As far as age is concerned, having done a little research, I'm probably looking for something around a 2000 registration (or slightly younger) depending on price and mileage. I'd prefer a car with a full history (with Alfa service history preferred). Ideally I'd like a Lusso spec. with leather, 'woodrim' wheel and alloys, but would settle for the cord trim if the interior is in good condition.

I'm based in Hampshire and will travel for the right car - thanks in advance for any advice/help that anyone can give.
