After driving a Volvo V40 2.0t for the last 3 years which gave up the ghost before Christmas, I decided on buying an Alfa 156 sportwagon. I didnt have alot of money to spend (£3.5k). So my quest started to find something, but when you are new to a brand there is so many specs and engines that I wasnt sure what I wanted - eventually settled on finding a 2.4JTD with veloce spec with facelifted interior - couldnt quite stretch to an exterior facelift
There wasnt alot of them going about - plenty of prefacelift with prices from £1k to £4k. I eventually found one a 2003 on a 52 plate which I got for £1800
Dont think ts gonna be perfect when I get it (on Saturday) but its got history and it all checks out HPI etc. but with the money I saved on buying I will get it a full service to put it tip top!!
Anyway this forum has been a constant source of information in the last month (especially the bluetooth standard HU post) so its good to post at last.
