I have just bought my first ever Alfa.
I bought an Alfa 156 JTS Tourismo to be my 'Sensible' car while I take my Volvo 480 Turbo off the road to work on it as it was too hard to work on it as much as it required but keep it as a daily driver.
Fell in love with the car the second I got in it. A few little issues here and there to sort out but for £380 I cannot complain.
I will post some photos of my Alfa and my Volvo soon
Problems which need resolved with the Alfa:
> Needs pads and discs all round
> Needs the drivers mirror looked at as it goes left and right but not up and down
> Rear bumper needs repaired
> Scratch on the front bumper
> Battery is knackered (Have a brand new one waiting to go on)
> It has a intermittent misfire mainly around 3k revs and over
> Had the cam-belt kit changed recently
> The interior is immaculate and the leather is in spectacular condition same with the loverly 156 floor mats
> When it doesn't misfire it runs an absolute treat
> The fuel consumption is amazing better than I thought it would be and I am currently getting about 39-40MPG (might be to do with the fact I can't get over 3k revs :P haha)
> Alloys are in excellent condition
I am looking forward to familiarization myself with the car and giving it a good service.
I will let you all know how it goes and if anyone has any advice or tips about this particular model or Alfa's in general that would be grand.
Also the sound system is amazing....
