Hi From Alfa 156 - W994 BAW
Just thought I'd introduce myself as being new to the forum. I currently own a W reg Alfa Romeo 156 1.8 Twinspark Veloce in Red. It's my second 156. My previous which I regretted selling was a T reg 156 2.5V6 in Cosmos Blue. They are indeed fantasic cars and I haven't had any major problems with either of them. I've always been a huge fan of italian cars with Lancia Fulvia's being a particular favorite.
I've had the Cambelt, Tensioners & Variator changed at Allitalia/Paxton Garage in Wrexham (Who I can highly recommend) just before Christmas. Next job will be the lower suspension arms as there wearing a little, the car handles superbly though. its very well balanced compared with the 2.5V6 But nowhere near the same grunt ofcourse.
Also taking the car around Oulton Park later this month on a novice taster track session. So I'm looking forward to that. Coupled with drives around North Wales on occassions which really has some of the best driving roads in the UK the Evo Triangle, Snowdonia, Lleyn Peninsula, Anglesey etc Cheers
