Good Evening everyone...

Picked up my first Alfa today ..1998 (S) Silver 156 2.5 V6..WOW!
Performance (for a car) is the best I've had.
Swapped my 1997 GSXR750 for it and think I did very well.
A couple of small problems that will get sorted in time.

1) Radio has ---- showing but now have code from Alfa dealer.
for information I looked at the waiting times people were experiencing and phoned Autechnique in Salisbury. they couldn't have been more helpful!!
I gave the service manager all the info and he phoned me back 15 minutes later with the radio/key/immobiliser codes for 29 inc VAT!

2) slight blistering over windscreen seal

3) Crack from a reversing incident in front spoiler.

Thanks for your time...Lee

Re: Good Evening everyone...

Welcome to the group and good luck with the 156. I hope you'll have lots and lots of fun

I had a 166 v6 and i really miss the engine note - but not the 25mpg!!

Re: Good Evening everyone...

Right..radio code works fine, ipod installed..we're away!
Does anyone know anything about the fit and finish of the mesh grille kits on ebay? they look the mutts in the pictures but they could be photoshopped..
