Hello All

Hi folks,
New Irish Member here!

Was waiting untill I had pictures for the Garage before I posted here.

After 6 months of no car and hard saving I finally bought my Alfa.

2001 Silver 156 2.0 TS (Not to sure on the spec name, according to ePer its a CF3 Distinctive / Rich) ?

- 15k miles (yup the millege is correct )
- Blue Velour seats
- A/C
- Electric F+R Windows / Electric Mirrors.

As you can see by the millege it hasn't been used much, it's like new inside and out.

So far all I have changed is the cd player to a Pioneer DEH-P70BT
I have clear side indicators on order so for the moment that's all thats changing.

Re: Hello All

Nice one

Welcome to AO




When I bought my car in 2004, it was four years old with only 13.5k miles on the clock. You'd be amazed how much the engine has improved in the 25k miles I have put on it since (it was a bit tight for the first 12 months or so). I would be interested to know if you find the same thing....

Re: Hello All

Cheers.

Someone said that to me before actually, I'm even more looking forward to putting the miles on her now

How did you notice the improvement? Fuel Econ or general Performance?

She rev's much more freely now - better performance, exhaust note vastly improved, but the fuel econ has suffered as a consequence
