New here with a 156 2.5

Hello everyone,

I'm new to Alfa ownership, bit of a spontaneous thing really, I've got a 54 530d touring that my wife now uses and a '91 Golf Gti 8v in the garage for dry days and I fancied something different to the regular german stuff thats normally on my drive.

A casual Autotrader cruise over the weekend resulted in me buying a silver '99 156 V6 saloon with black leather, climate, 4x electric windows and an electric sunroof. The bodywork needs some minor attention but stuff I can sort at home, mechanically it's spot on. 70,000 miles with FSH and I got it for a very good price.

So here I am, I'm so pleased I've got an Alfa! It looks friendly and helpful on here and I look forward to maybe making a few meets when I get the bodywork sorted.

Can't post any photos as it's in the garage having an oil/filter and air and pollen filter change so I can't snap away yet. Lastly, that's just so fantastic, I'll happily keep pouring unleaded in while it sounds like it does


'99 156 2.5 V6 in silver with climate, electric roof and it's all working! Oh that noise....
'91 Golf Gti 8v in the garage, pampered toy.

Of all the luck.......

The guy doing the filters on the 156 is my best mate. He was having great fun getting at the oil filter so chucked me the keys to his wife's Cooper S and off I went. His parting comment was "put it through a car wash as someone's coming to look at it later". So I did the decent thing and gave it a good going over at home instead. So good in fact that it sold this afternoon. My mate (who is connected to the garage trade but has a normal job as well) needs to get about on Monday and Tuesday next week so guess whose lushious 156 he's tooling about in. Yep, mine, so I'm in my old Golf until next weekend when I can start sorting all those little things that will make it (for me) perfect.

Can't come soon enough and still NO PICS.
