Thumbs Up Just bought an Alfa 156 2.4JTD - hi!

HI. I wasn't really looking for another car but I saw this 2000W reg 156 saloon on eBay with 14 mins to go at 700 odd quid and thinking it looked cheap ended up buying it for not much more. It's done 142k and has some history. Cambelt was done at 125k although paperwork lost some no proof but seller seemed honest. Can't believe how cheap these cars are!

Drive it home today. I love the sporty feel and power. Engine very 'whooshy' and sounds great. The ride is firm but not too crashy. Steering is amazing! Also, the black leather interior is very nice. Bodywork isn't perfect but not too bad for it's age. Just need to convince the wife to sell her 11year old Golf 1.6 now and take this on now! I have a 10 year old Audi A4 which is used as a workhorse and my daily drive. It's very dependable and reliable but no match in the fun stakes to the Alfa. I have lots of technical questions but will post in the correct section.

I have always hankered after an Alfa, particularly the 156. My friend had a couple of 33's and a GTV6 and this started me off. Glad to finally be an Alfa owner and feel that this could be a long relationship!
