Hi everyone. Im just about to own my first alfa (156 2.4 JTD veloce 2 wagon)

nissan pulsar (450bhp) 1995

Im seling the vx to fund the alfa 2002 witch if all goes to plan will be picking it up sunday Can anyone tell me if there is such thing as veloce 2?? After i took it for test drive i fell in love with it even though its a wagon with 119000 mile on the clock. Is there anything i should double check before i hand over the cash? Oh and what do you think its worth?? Do all alfas have a bose sterio?

Re: My hello thread!

Can't say I've ever heard the term Veloce 2, although they may be refering to the later 'facelift' model. Veloce is just the standard of spec which should have full leahter, dual climate, etc.
Before you buy check the service history and make sure it's had all it's bets done every 32K.
If it is a facelift veloce then, yes, it will have the Bose head unit.

Anyway, welcome to AO

Re: My hello thread!

Veloce 2 would have the MOMO leather I think.. Veloce 1 would be cloth sports seats, and Veloce 3 the most expensive with leather Recaro's.

All of them have sports suspension, sideskirts, some have a spoiler..


My saloon has nearly 120k on the clock and is fine (touch wood)

Check for creaks going over speedbumps (New wishbones - £250)
Is clutch bite really high up the pedal? (New clutch - £500)
When were cambelts/tensioners last done? (£300-£500)

These are what I'd say are the 3 major things to watch out for on the diesels.. As long as it has a service history with regular oil changes, the engines are very reliable.
