Second V6 Alfa

Hi All
Could not resist another Alfa so found myself a 2001 156 V6 with big wing and black electric Recaro's. Even invested in a Recaro Baby set for the youngest. Silver in colour originally from the Edinburgh area. Previous owner tried to be fly and taped over the ABS, EBD warning lights and the Airbag so got the car for a song, spent 3 on a 50amp fuse for the ABS and reset the Airbag and now all is well.
Car has 72k with a stack of receipts and history with a main dealer bill for 750 for the belts and tensioners 15K ago, but I stripped the top end and changed all the plugs, cleaned out the intake and MAF, she goes like a train now.
Posted a picture in the gallery next to my old 166 V6 but more pictures on

Lick Hello folks

Delighted to report that after 6 months of me nipping his head every day on the drive to work John relented and i'm now the proud owner of my very first Alfa Romeo 156 V6. I am under orders to keep it up to the same standard as he has so watch this space

Welcome to AO !

And now that you're here: allow me to draw your attention to the Folding at Home initiative (Please join the AO Folding@Home Team!) some of us AO'ers are involved in. Maybe you can spare us a few CPU cycles

Whatever you do: enjoy your stay!
