my 1st year :)

So as my mot is looming it means I've owned the 156 near on a year......... I've covered a grant total of 14,000 miles in her now sooooooo......... This car I was warned against buying and it'll be the biggest mistake I make has it been???? NO
OK so we've had our little fall outs but she's never once failed too start and get me where I'm going but there was a small issue of a clutch letting go.... What a job that is too do on the 2.4 jtd let me tell you.... While it was in bits I did the cam belt not a frightening job at all just tight. Now for the mot she needs upper wishbones no big drama .
So all the haters of the Alfa she's wiped egg on your face here's too another happy year from the old girl

Happy Anniversary!
I did get a bit tired of all the warnings so I developed a filter system that went a little like this

"You want an Alfa? They're really unreliable you know"

"Oh really? how many Alfas have you owned?"

"None."

"I'll bear that in mind.."
