156 maybe?

Hello to everyone at Alfa world!Few questions.

Hi,Joined a while ago knowing that one day the Alfa bug would bite me! Italian,over enginered,look great who could resist an Alfa.
Now my predicament is which one.This is going to be a fun car not daily transport but something I can turn into a BTCC racer,well not quite but you know the idea.I have set myself 1,500 to 2000 for the right car and love the lines of the 156 so thats going to be my choice.Now I am pretty interested in getting a selespeed 156 who could resist italian car with paddle change(just like schuey) but have heard that the system is very unreliable,is this the case?should I look at another 156?.Also which 156 models come with the selespeed at the moment I have just seen the 2.0 can you get the 2.5? I do intend to mess about with the car and use it for track days so a bit of power wouldnt go amiss.
Would be greatfull of some info.

Re: Hello to everyone at Alfa world!Few questions.

welcome to AO dude....

have a look through the search facility up top to get info regarding selespeeds.....

make sure your purchase has a full service history with a cambelt/tensioner change every 36k or 3 years, which ever is sooner...imo this is a must !!

make sure you have got all the keys, they are quite expensive to get cut (circa 140 pounds for key and fob)

happy hunting
