Hey peeps, time for my little introduction!
Im a South African living in the UK, and i bought my 1st Alfa about a month ago. I always wanted 1, and now i eventually got it.
Its a '98 model 156 2.0 TS, yeah its a bit old and has some issues, but you gotta start somewhere. I only paid £650 for it, but the guy coulda gotten more for it if he wanted to wait.
A bit about the car;
Its got some corrosion on the mirrors, which is expected with these cars. Then there is a small spot of rust on the roof which i only noticed a few days ago
The thermostat was stuck open, which i replaced myself last weekend.
Then there is a problem with the engine almost cutting out when i come to a stop. I havnt quite found the cause of that yet, but i'll get to the bottom of it as soon as i get some time.
The aircon pump needs to be replaced.
And now for the grand finale... I got back to my car from work on Friday and found it looking like this!! http://www.alfaowner.com/Forum/aogal...5102008456.jpg
It had concrete messed on it from the construction site that i was parked near. But this could turn out to be a positive thing, Lindon Homes mite be paying for a full respray soon. I cant see them being able to get hardened cement off the paint without leaving any marks?
Anyway, thats it for now. BTW, great site guys!!
