Well in Augsut 2015 i became a new happy alfa owner, we bought our Alfa Romeo 156 SW 2.0 T. Spark as a second car for the household. Its is from April 2000, and therefor abit of an old lady. She had done 173.000km condition was allright.
I have wanted the 156 for a few years. Allways liked it, since my father bought one back in 1999, he had it for about 10 years i think. Hes was a black sedan, mine is a silvergrey sportwagon.
Had the cambelt done including all the wheels and tightners+variator ect. (Had to be sure it would not snap at some point)
Did all the front wishbones and links and joints? Since it was very shaky and the motorway.
Serviced with oil and filters.
plus minor things, like instrument bulbs, also changed the rear window motor, as the wire had snapped and the window was hanging. (this took be about 4 hours :/ thanks for the guide though!)
Did the V6 intake mod, and deconed it for the sweeter induction noise.
I hope for a long and rewarding relationship with this car.
