I have fallen hard for my 156 - now I get the Alfa Romeo devotion!


Well my 51st car is an Alfa Romeo and now I know what all the fuss is about.

I have had various BMWs, a TVR, a few Audis and VWs but this is one of my favourite ever cars, bought at a time in my life when I am flat broke and I love it!

It a 2004 156 1.8 Twin Spark thats done 90k miles and I bought it from a salvage auction as the passenger door on the drivers side was damaged.

I have replaced this and I also got lucky with a Leather interior for 60 and this has lifted the interior.

I now plan to spend some time over the next few weeks giving it some TLC to bring it back up to a presentable standard.

I just got a new Cambelt and Lower wishbones fitted this week, a new Thermostat and now I am going to begin work on the silly bits and pieces that let the car down

Any pearls of wisdom gratefully received!
