156 v6

1st post!


I think i might of posted a fair while ago but i cant remember, but i thought i would renew the vows

Basically i have been the owner of a T plate 156 2.5 V6 for the past 2.5 years and i have loved it. However i ran in to a run of bad luck since november last year and have lost heart in the car. Not the cars fault as much just my shoddy luck. Been the victim of several vandalisms which has left multiple scratches all round the car bonnet to boot. I also forked out 1000 renovating the clutch and suspension as they hadnt been touched in 10 years, lost a mechanic friend who took the job on and had to pratically drill out every rusted bolt on the underside of the car. One week after that a lady saw fit to slam her brakes on (for no aparent reason) after pulling out on a roundabout resulting in my car being 1 inch shorter, bent structure bar barely missing the radiator and popping the light washer jets somewhere in to the bumper.

My last effort was to try and get he sound sytem i had bought several months before in to the car, i took the scuttle panel off to see where to run the power cable to the battery and (after cursing the rusted screws) watched a crack run up the windscreen.

A series of unfortunate events. Because of all this i have decided to give up the car.

All is not lost as i put a deposit on an 06 3.2 GT 2 days ago and eagerly awaiting collection of her! Please wish my better luck than on my last car!

Hi and welcome to AO

You are now part of a large and friendly community which may seem a bit daunting at first! Hopefully this post will help you to feel a little more in control

The forum is divided into sections. Possibly the first one you'll look for is the Technical advice section relating to your own vehicle.

Also take a look in your Regional Lounge as well; there are events and meets happening all the time!

Finally there is the Community Section. This is just the place to post a non-vehicle specific thread, post photos of your Bella (Image Lounge) or just hang out in the Way Off Topic lounge!

Enjoy being part of our family! Please don't hesitate to ask any questions (no matter how silly you think it might be) by contacting a member of staff
