My name is Gary I am over Haslingden in the north west in Lancashire.
Last week I rescued a 2005 156 2.4 JTD Lusso, I flew down to Plymouth to meet her she as high mileage for her age 110,000 service history up to 87,000 she as also missed a service, her body work is not to good but i will get around to that.
I drove back some 450 miles stopping off for a visit to see my daughter in Milton Keynes and a welcome cup of tea.
She drove lovely and never missed a beat, along the way on the motorway i was circled (like sharks) by 2 friendly 156s they nodded put the thumbs up and away they went
Made me smile...
About my Alfa she had only an oil change last year no mention of a cam belt but did get all new drive shafts both sides boots and all.
She is in the workshop to day for a full service new cam timing belt kit and new auxiliary kit includes tensioner and 2 other pulleys. On MONDAY re mapping.
