New 156 owner

Hi folks,

I've just aquired a '99 "S" reg 156 2.0 Twin Spark in a dark blue metallic as a daily driver at the cost of 835 last Thursday. It's a high mileage example at 126k but is in very good overall condition and has plenty of past history.

It's in need of a good service, I swapped the black sludge stuff in the engine for some fully synthetic yesterday and spun on a new filter. I'm after plugs and an air filter next, plus maybe a MAF sensor.

I joined the forum to seek some friendly advice as I don't really know anything about these cars, other than I like them!

I'm into Jaguar's specifically XJ40's, I'm restoring and modifying one of these at the moment, it's currently off the road.



Alfa Romeo 156 2.0 ('99) Twin Spark - the daily driver...
Jaguar XJ40 4.0S ('94) - being restored and modified...
Jaguar XJR40 ('90) - now breaking for the good bits...
