Wave Helo everyone been a long time and I`m returning to alfa

Hello again everybody kind of a re-newbie

It`s been along time since I`ve been here missed the madhouse

Had an 2003 156 1800 turismo lovely car very reliable despite what everyone thinks about alfas only left due to always wanting an audi

ooh dear 54 plate a6 (vorsprung durch technik) 12months ownership 18 times it went back into the dealership with massive faults thank god it had an audi warranty.

Airbag problems intermitent light on dash plus a weird vibe through wheel.
engine mounts replaced to try and stop massive engine vibration.
3 clutches and double mass flywheels.
new gearbox and selector linkage.
sensor failures and total complete rear light failiures.
new rear seat belts and rear windows failed to work.

got rid of it for a 97 vw golf gti but now me and the g/friend are looking for a
159 sportwagon but we can`t decide on which diesel and spec to go for

I gather things have got better for alfa on reliability but are there still any niggles to look for

cheers everyone.

Hello and Welocme. The 159 does look cool. I am sure you will find lots of advice here, as you probably know all ready.
