Saying Hi

Hi all,

the proud owner of a 2003 156 2.0l jts(62k on the clock), used to have a gtv6 way back in the day(1988) - but due to age and enthusiatic driving style, she broke when she hit a wall and was then bounced into a tree . For some reason never brought another alfa after that, played it safe for a long while. Moved to audi's in my 30's and the one i traded in for the alfa was my rs4 , in very poor condition, needed 2 new calipers,4 discs,pads, heater box, which in total came to more than he alfa cost ( well thats what i told the wife ).

I have owned the 156 for about 5 weeks now, and it still brings a smile to my face over 3000.
Haven't had any issues with it as yet, doesn't appear to be drinking the oil (checking weekly at the moment), and it is running like a dream.
She appears to have been extremely well looked after, full service history with alfa dealers apart from the last one that the trader undertook, 2 owners from new - so very happy with it.

She's stock at the moment but will be adding some subtle mods to her, in a month or so, just waiting to see if anything does go wrong prior to spending the cash.

Glad to have found the forums as they have been helpful in helping me know what to look for whilst buying.

Thanks all

Welcome aboard!
I found the 156 2.0 JTS a fine car, nice engine. Keep checking the oil though!

Enjoy your stay & post pics
