Hi, prospective Alfa owner here.

Hello, my name is Antony, but various forums know me as Macaroni.

I currently drive a Citroen Xantia Activa, which is awesome and everyone should try a good one before they die. But, I have had a strong desire for an Alfa, especially a 156 for many years.

I have many questions to ask, such as are Selespeeds really as bad as their reputation? Will I miss the cornering of my Xantia if I get a 156? Is the V6 the best 156 to go for?

There are many others, but they will do for starters!

Welcome to the forum mate, I'm sure some of the 156 owners will be full of helpful info for you.

Hi macaroni
Will I miss the cornering of my Xantia,no.
Will you love a 156, yes, not driven the Xantia, but a 156 would eat it for breakfast in the twisty bits.
And for me the classic V6 is the one to go for,good luck.
