My name is Nick and I'm an alcohol............oops, sorry, wrong forum!
A few words about myself. I've recently set myself up as a freelance courier, having spent 15 odd years in the motor trade. During my time in the trade, I worked with a variety of manufacturers, from Bentley to VW, and was Warranty Manager for 4 years in a Fiat/Alfa dealer in South Wales, so i do know these cars pretty well!!
I've recently purchased a 52 plate 156 2.0 JTS Turismo, as I needed a car for weekend use (I'm in my van all week long) and it had to be big enough to carry our 2 small Grand-daughters. Looking at all possibilities on a certain, well known online auction site, this car stood out amongst all the rest. The previous owner was in his 60's and had looked after the car well, having had it serviced regulary in a specialist in Bristol.
OK, there are a few faults on it. The thermostat isn't working (a new one has been ordered through the Alfa Workshop), it needs a good polish, and I've just noticed the o/s/f footwell is wet
All in all, I'm happy with the car and hope it'll give me good service. No doubt, you'll be hearing from me frequently on here
All the best to you all
