Hello all

Hello everybody, I am in the process of looking round your forum and it looks pretty good. I decided to join as I am thinking of buying an Alfa and where better to get advice/tips?
I have previously joined forums for other models of cars I have owned and always found them to be a source of invaluable knowledge and here seems to be no different.
I am hoping to become a Alfa owner quite soon I just have to decide what to get, I was thinking of a 156 with the selepeed gearbox so a bit of advice as to what to look out for wouldn't go amiss.
Thanks in advance for any help you guys can give.

Hi and welcome to AO.
If it's an older model try and avoid the SS, unless you know it has been looked after.
Good hunting for your 156
