New proud owner - just some advise

Hi everyone,

I just thought I would post on her for some friendly advice and guidance. I am close to
Completing a purchase of a 03 156 1.6 T spark silver. The price is 3k which I think is a
good deal provided everything checks out. The mileage is 78 and the model has the upgrade

There are a couple of things to be done on it before i check it out - the timing belt , an
issue with one of the door locks and a small problem with the front passenger electric
windows. The bushes were done on it this week.

I am far from a petrol head so apologies to those who are but the 156 is probably the only
car I have ever craved after if you understand what I mean.

I just really want some guidance on what else I should look out for before I purchase. The
garage (not Alfa garage) is giving me a 3 month warranty on engine and gearbox and the
exterior is mint as far as i can gather.

Also it has the 15 inch 8 hole teledial alloys. Ideally I would love the 16 inch 5 hole and
also the side skirts. How easy would it be to pick up some side skirts and add to the car. I
think personally this adds greatly to the aesthetics. The tires are brand new so I might
just leave the existing wheels on for now.

So k=just basically any advice on what to look out for and hopefully I am making the right
decision in buying one. I donít drive a huge amount but I just love the car and everything
about it.
