156 v6


Hi - just a quick intro - I alfa'd myself 18 months.

The old mx5 finally had to go after 13 years of fantastic fun and high cornering speeds after a nightmare logistical weekend involving more kids and relatives than a two seater can realistically cope with. Various lengthy debates with the petrolheads at work concluded that the age of gas-guzzlers was about to end and now was the time to buy something with at least six cylinders and five seats. Several weeks on ebay and the usual suspect magazines and it came down to a 156.

Three grand landed me with a 1998 v6 which sounds like Thor when I press the noisy pedal and, as you all know, has a beautifully chromed exhaust manifold but NO CUP HOLDERS. Oh and leather.

She's cost me 'a bit' in servicing but heck, its only 5 miles each way to the station so I don't really burn much fuel each day.

Rather more pragmatically - I just signed up to find out how to fit a new rear window mechanism so if someone could send me alink..... :-(
