New Alfa 156 Owner in NZ

Hi - I'm a NZer who has just ventured into the world of Alfa 156 ownership, having purchased a 1999 156 selespeed from another alfa enthusiast who has moved up to a 2.5 litre 156. I've lived in Europe (geneva) a few years back and developed my enthusiam for Itlaina cars there - my wife and I had a wonderful mid 80s Alfa Spider and I also had an absolutely fantastic 1971 Lancia Flavia coupe - that was a great car.

Anyway, as I'm based in NZ I am very interested in any info colleagues can provide on good internet-based sites for Alfa 156 parts that will export parts to my part of the world. Already found the fantastic EB Spares. In particular, any info on the best links for sourcing a MAF sensor - the previous owner of the car has suggested some good ebay auction-based sites but I wonder if there is anything else out there?

Great to be part of the group and have already benefitted greatly from your advice and insights. happy new year

Thanks - will check those sites out and let you know how I get on - just so you UK/Europe based members can have some idea of how Alfa ownership can be on antipodeans: I had a quote for around 270 pounds for a MAF sensor from a local NZ supplier....
