Alfa Romeo 155

Hello from New Zealand

Hi guys!

My name is Ned and live in Auckland. I'm a 23 y/o Microcontroller programmer and have owned a multitude of cars from mainly Toyota's to the odd Honda, BMW, Ford etc but have finally joined the dark side

Bought my first ever alfa a week or two ago and it's been fun. She's a early 155 with the 2.5 V6. Few days after i got it she started running on 4 cylinders and yesterday the passenger rear brake locked on and almost caught fire

Guess thats what you get for buying an alfa over a toyota (my usual choice in cars) but i'm def not regretting it just yet, it's been great fun playing around with it and fixing bits and pieces here and there.

So figured i should sign up and find out how to get it to run on 6 cylinders again because that was most def better then 4

Hope you guys are a friendly bunch of people

Welcome to AO fella. My kid brother lives out in West Auckland, he has a '74 Alfetta GT and tells me that there is quite a healthy Alfa owners club out there. Was out there myself last year and went to the Alfa race day at Pukekohe race track and also the concourse show at Ellerslie. Some stunning older Alfa's out there. Good luck with getting your 155 back running on all 6.
