Well, I did'nt want to post a 'introduce myself' thread - but hey-ho sod it...lol
Just bought my first Alfa - 156 1.8 T/S in red. Bought off ebay as an MOT failure, but nothing that a few pounds and determination will sort. Even the dog chewed rear arm rest hasnt put me off.
I've always been warned from getting an Alfa - but when I drove it I got hooked.
The failures were: excessive play in n/s/f ball joint, side lights inop & 1 x number plate lamp missing. Getting the ball joint done next week - replaced both sidelight bulbs and are working and new number plate lamp arrives this week.
The Alfa's done 105k and it's on a w plate (2000?). Missus cleaned/shampood (
) all the inside and polishing the outside in the week weather stays dry.
Got a wicked ebay bargain on red leather trim door cards (£0.99 on ebay) which i'm just fitting now. Changed the ripped gear & h/brake lever gaiters for red leather ones - look cool.
I've attached a few images of her when I got her.
oh yeah - the n/s/r external door handle is stuck in the open position too...lol
