Hi everybody !

Hi everybody!

I know, i know...Vectra...what can i say? I didn't know any better!

I had the luck to be lent an Alfa 156 to drive for a few hours...that's it! I was hooked, had to get one.

Should have a 156 2.0 JTS by the weekend. Got 2 i'm looking at, just a matter of who gives me the better deal!

Sorry about the Vauxhall thing, i beg forgiveness.

Re: Hi everybody !

mmmmmm......as long as it wasn't a BMW then it's ok. You've seen the error of your ways anyway, so all is forgiven!!

Welcome to AO, and on behalf of Hugo (Throttleman), we always request some snaps of your new ride.

If you need any buying tips on a JTS, Im sure a few of the members will be pleased to help you out andbur!!

Re: Hi everybody !

Hi guys.

Sorry i have not posted for a while.

I was going to buy a 156 with the old front and new dash, but then i started to like the new shape more... so i scraped together a bit more money and bought an 04 156.

Pics will follow as soon as i get my damn camera working again!

Re: Hi everybody !

Hello all.

Here are some pics of my baby.

She's just standard at the moment, but i'm considering a few mods. Any suggestions will be welcome.

Depreciation.....Whats that

I suspect you are refering to the special surcharge which all Alfa owners are required to pay, inorder to experience the pleasure of one of these machines . This surcharge is collected when the car is sold
