Alfa 156


Hi, all

I'm now an ancient (70) 2 litre Alfa 156 driver, having progressed through cars like the Fiat 124 ST 1600 (2), and a Lancia Delta 1600GT (on which everything that could go wrong - did!) but a brilliant drivers car. The Alfa is 7 yrs old from new, only one warranty claim for a paint run, and no real problems at all at 50,000 miles. I'm hoping to keep it until I have to give up driving! My only complaint is the somewhat haphazard fuel gauge, and the fact that it scrubs the inside edges off the front tyres - but that's the penalty for having a car that goes where you point it! I look forward to reading some interesting comments about 156's in the future.

Re: Donaldo

Welcome to AO Donaldo... I'm only 11 years behind you but I still regard myself a a middle-aged youth suffering from a terminal condition (refusing to grow up)

Like yourself I've progressed through various Italian cars, the most recent of which was a Lancia Delta 2.0 HPE Turbo, which was very aggressive and a great driver's car. Eventually everything started to go wrong and I couldn't get spares. Fortunately I was able to replace it with the most enjoyable and satisfying car I've ever owned... the Alfa 147GTA
