156 GTA

Hello

Hi there.

I'm new to this site so I thought I'd post up a quick hello. As I am thinking about swapping my Renault Megane 225 Trophy for a 156 GTA as I need 4 doors, but want ti be able to have some fun as well!!

Hopefully there'll be loads of advice on this site on what to look for and what to avoid on the 156 GTA, any pitfalls etc etc, oh, and any tuning mods that can be done as well!!!

Cheers

Re: Hello

Thanks guys.

I have looked at a few other rapid 4 or 5 door cars - a MK4 Golf R32, but it was not any bigger than the Megane, A 3.0V6 Jag X-Type, but it was crap, looked at a Mondeo ST220, but I'm not an old geezer yet (despite being 42!!), and then I stumbled onthe Alfa 156 GTA. I was something that is not completely mainstream and is a little different, but has the go in it as well.

Have my eyes on a few at the moment so will have a try in them next weekend and see whether I can strike a deal with the dealer (private sale would be better, but I need to part with my Megane, so I need to go to a dealer).

Cheers

Re: Hello

Hi Per, and welcome to AO

There's loads of fun and general driving pleasure to be had from a 156 GTA in standard trim, and I'd recommend that you go for a test drive to sample the Alfa V6 experience.

And as SNOKIO has pointed out, Autodelta can raise the already brilliant engine & chassis performance to heroic levels at relatively low cost, and with retained reliability

Re: Hello

Thanks again.

Have been looking at Autodelta already and exhausts, and other upgrades etc are very well priced.

Will post up what happens as regards the p/x value on my Megane 225 Trophy.

Cheers
