Re: About to buy 156 2.5 V6
good luck with your new Alfa
. If it brings you as much joy as mine has bought me you will be one happy man.
Dont get worrying about all the problems you can get, just give it plenty of tlc and it will be as reliable as any other car. If you do regular oil checks and oil changes and use a good quality oil she will bring you years of enjoyment. I took a huge chance on mine as i brought it off ebay without even seeing as i didnt see the advert till there was 20 minutes to go but after 12 months of owning it its been worth every penny.
Mine also had all the extras , pearlescent paint , momo leather , aircon , full factory fitted bodykit etc. One word of warning though ,if your Alfa has been lowered at all be very very very careful of speed humps and high kerbs as i have now twice scrapped my front spoiler underneath.
At 10,000 rpm , no one can hear you scream.
