Bought me a 156 2.0 CF3 Veloce with sportpack other week, loving every minute of driving it. I like kidding myself into the 'Smiles per mile' as i watch my fuel gauge drop, which is way more than im used to having not had a petrol motor since late teens lol.
Hopefully i can eventually get all those niggly bits sorted out on the car.... upper wishbones needed doing when i bought it, since then the fuel gauge is stroppy and i ran out of petrol on way to work the other day, cant see temp gauge in the dark, backbox fell off on way home from work - but have realised there is a bass monster lurking somewhere up the manifold lol. side light keeps blowing, it also doesnt seem to pull like it used to. i will try ecu reset after i have fitted new pipercross filter, changed oil again and fitted new back box. hopefully this will bring it back to life! oh, think i have sticky calliper on drivers rear - 1 fully worn pad and 1 full pad on opposite side! abs warning light has also notified me lol.
Paranoid till i get the cam/timing belt done too, have done these belts on my previous motors but worried about doing it on an alfa! does not seem as simple.....
All in all, looking forward inevitably spending all my money fixing it and on petrol. but im already addicted to my Alfa. meh, whats new in life
