Back again after 6 years odd

I am now back to Alfa ownership, and pretty much where I started with another 156, this being my 5th one.

After being in company cars for 4 years I am changing job so needed a cheap motor which I could work on and keep on the road for a year or so at least.

So I bought a very cheap Alfa 156 2.4 JTD Sportwagon Veloce in Fantasy Blue, I was going to spend a lot more and get a facelift but TBH there isn't too many 2.4 JTD S/W for sale.

Mine has done quite a few miles but seems ok, esp as it was only 400 with T&T !!

So far new front discs/pads have been ordered and now going to get some new upper/lower wishbones as the susp is banging a little.

Needs a good detailing but I enjoy doing that.

Still miss my old 147 GTA though..


FOR SALE SOON - Alfa 159Ti 2011 2.0JTDm, Black with genuine Alfa bodykit and late spec interior .

I sold my GTA 6 or 7 years ago to Matty who was on here quite a lot back then, Iit then went to a lad in southampton as I saw it a few times. Last I heard it was for sale again minus the 3.7 engine, but up for a lot of money.

I will be wielding the spanners this weekend on the 156, new front discs/pads, and fitting new top hat bushes on the gear linkage.

Thanks for the welcome guy's.
