Just bought a 156
After pondering Alfa ownership for several years, and having flirted with some good and not so good examples, I've bought a 1999 156 v6. Very happy with it so far! Just a few small niggles but otherwise the car is in great shape. It's a hoot to drive, it has an aftermarket cone intake which give off a great sound under acceleration.
Just had full service at the dealers (roll bars, wishbones etc). It has developed a slight boot leak (might be related to power wash at dealer). I reckon I will get a new seal fitted and see if this works. Remote key is also missing!
