Hallo everybody peeps

Hi, just discovered this website, looks great, should have found it sooner but never thought....doh. Anyway just bought myself an "ALFA ROMEO 156 2.0 T/S 16V VELOCE SELESPEED 2002". I am Picking it up on Saturday. Anything I should be on the lookout for? It has 38000 on the clock, any major servicing coming up for example?

Anyway looking forward to a long and happy relationship with the motor and this forum. Any advise greatly appreciated.

Re: Hallo everybody peeps

welcome to AO dude....

main points to look out for...

change cambelt and tensioners every 36k or 3 years, which ever is sooner....cost at an indie around 250 pounds, at a dealer around the 500 mark

make sure it has all its keys, circa 140 to get a new one cut with fob


other than above its just the usual full service history, check the oil, should be nice and clean and topped up to the top mark on the dipstick..checking the oil is a weekly procedure, the Twinnies can use a wee bit of oil

enjoy

Bella is Italian for beautiful or something like that and often applies to women . As ALL Alfas are beautiful and most cars are thought of as women then yes all!

May I congratulate you on an exelent choice of car!
I love my sele but had some probs, ask the owner if he has had any probs or parts replaced. It may be worth checking the selespeed oil level either before or just after purchase. This is on the passenger side of the engine bay (exctly opposite the coolant and washer) check the level with the ignition on (MAR) engine not running tho! The oil can be got from a stealership or shop4parts.

Happy driving!!
Cal

Oh and big up Wales! My folks live in mid Wales. There is also a Welsh Alfa forum too. (But this is the best!!)
