A couple of weeks ago my girlfriend smashed up our old, reliable golf 1.6 CL. I wasn't that bothered as Id been hankering after a new car for a while. Preferably one with a bit more bite, leather seats and a decent stereo! I thought I'd just get a better Golf, as apart from the slightly sluggish pull, the cloth seats and the rubbish stereo I was dead happy. However, looking around Autotrader and ebay there seemed a dearth of good value looking Golfs around my price range (800-1000).

Anyway spreading my net further I came across a very attractive Alfa Romeo 156 with leather seats on ebay at around 800. Id never really noticed them before and knew nothing about them, but it looked lovely. I didnt bid, but I thought Id investigate a bit more. One thing led to another and I ended up here.

So, I still haven't got one but essentially Im looking for a 156, probably the most economical one within my price range (900-1300) with leather seats! I still know very little but Im looking forward to learning more on here!

Re: hello


I am a newbie on here too.

I have had my 156 selespeed sportswagon since new ( for over 7 years now ) and the only thing I have had to do is fill up with oil ( quite a lot, as Alfa's drink it like I drink JD ), and change the tyres once a while. I must admit, I did have my reservations about buying an Alfa, but even after my 156 purchase, I even bought a 147 a year later. They were car of the year though
I have had problems with the 147 selespeed pump, but that was sorted once changed. Other than that I can honestly say that I have had 2 x 7 years or so happy motoring with my two little babies.
They are great to drive and stand out from the crowd.
Good luck.
