Potential 156 Owner

Hi all,

I've just joined the forum as I'm looking to buy a used 156. I originally drove a 156 in 1998 for about 4months with my job and loved the car. I've decided to change my current car (a Citroen diesel) and as the 156 (98-2000 vintage) seem to be very affordable I'm looking to get one.

I note that there are a number of selespeed with transmission problems on the market at stupidly cheap prices (2.0 1999 63k for £550 drivable but with selespeed transmission problem) and wonder whether it is worth the hassle and cost of taking the risk and buying one to get it fixed?

In a word - NO! Stick to a manual.
