156 GTA


Hi All,

Have been a member of the forum for a few years, but haven't posted any thing yet, just done lots of reading !

I have a 2003 156 GTA Miro red, which I've owned since April 2004. I have to say I love the car & 3.5 yrs later you can still hear me saying to people 'I still smile every time I drive it'. You can't say that about many cars.

The car had been trouble free untill untill the begining of Sept this year, when the timming belt snapped. The car had only 32k miles on it. Needless to say I was on to Alfa (Fiat Ireland) to argue the toss. Anyway 4 wks later got the car back repaired. The bill was €5k & Alfa paid €4k, so was happy with that.

Moral of story 'change timming belt at 30k miles'. Book says 72k miles or after 5 yrs. Alfa have notified the dealers to ammend to 36k miles.

Does any one know where you can get GTA floor mats at a reasonable price. Last set cost me €225.00 & they are very hard wearing.

High Trailbraker, met you in the pub last friday, looking forward to seeing your car at the next track day.
