156 sportwagon


Hi I’ve just bought my first Alfa, 2003 156 sportwagon 1.8ts. The car has done just 42000 miles and as full service history.

I chose the Alfa to replace my 10 year old Laguna because of its style both inside and out.
I’ve only had the car one day and have driven it about 30 miles, my first impressions are that I like the handling but am disappointed with the performance from the 1.8 motor which seems no better then the 1.8 in the Laguna.

I buy cars because I like them, not to impress others. My niece does not like my Alfa nor does she like my other cars both Triumph TR7s which seems to be disliked by every one I know, are they all blind?
