156 2.4JTD 20v

Yet another victim of the Alfa disease!


I have succumbed to the Alfa disease and bought a 156! I was planning to get a late pre facelift but instead a 2005 2.4 20v JTD in blue with tan leather called out to me. Was only 250 odd miles away and over budget but now she is mine!

Yes, I have checked the oil!

She is typically Alfa, beguiling with just a hint of evil. So far the only fault is the simple fact that I cannot get air into the tyres due to what looks like metal stems over the normal valve. Looks like they were fitted along with the Alfa valve caps. Is this one of those Alfa-isms that you only get told out when it is too late and your heart is gone??

Will get some pictures up soon

Off to check oil again
