How to tell if an Alfa has NOT been owned by an enthusiast

Been doing the rounds at some car dealers looking for a good 156. Man I get the same story from every car salesman. "This car was owned by an Alfa enthusiast". Yeah right!

Alfa enthusiasts dont do the first cambelt change at 110,000 Ks.
They never NOT wash under the hood, so the motor is cacked in dirt and dust
They never jack the car up so that the jack damages the floor or the side skirts.

What else would an Alfa lover never do?

You are right I would never damage the side skirts with a jack but the fitter that did my tyres did just that

If an enthusiast has owned the car, there will be good history documentation.
If not, probably very little or none.
