156 owner......


Just recently found the website and liking it! I've had my 156 for 1 year now & loving it, dad's on his 2nd 147 as well!

She just passed her MOT (the first one since i've owned) and sailed through, no advisory's at all, result. I've had the cambelt changed, variator, wishbones, steering rack and new spark plugs all done pretty much when I bought it and had no problems since. I had the work done at:

MotoTech - Home

Just Alfa Spares Home

Both recommended, especially for the Liverpool area. Here's some pics....... Enjoy!

Nice 156 mate, It looks stunning with the red leather. I had exactly the same spec until about a week ago and changed it for a GT.
I love my new GT but already miss 'Alfie' my trusty 156.

Welcome to the site!

Cheers mate, I'm thinking of changing for a GT over the next 12 months funds depending but I love the 156. A lot of car for not a great deal of money! Great

Thanks for the kind words! The spoiler was on the car when I got it but it isn't genuine as the part is slightly duller than the rest of the car, only slight and you can only see in certain lights. You can also see where it's been screwed through the boot but I think I'm just going to keep it. There was/is a k&n filter on there but I need to get it re located lower down probably in the original filter housing to keep cool air going through.

Loving the car though and I don't think I'll be changing from alfas from now on!
