Re: Considering 156 1.6TS; what to look for & facelift?
Thanks for your comments gents.
Ralf S, it really is just the running costs that's pushing me towards a 1.6. I was previously considering a 2.4jtd to get more mpg, but someone at work has a 1.6 SW and that just made me think about that option.
Steveisfrowning, what kind of mpg do you get from yours (is it a saloon or an SW?); or perhaps more indicative, what does it cost to fiill a tank and how many miles do you get?
Alfaholic, thanks for info on facelifts; will keep an eye out for body-coloured trim and mirrors...hoping to spend around £4k max so it might just squeeze into the reckoning.
This may seem like a daft question, but do you guys think it's better to go for an older example with lower miles, or a newer example with higher miles (all other things being equal ie fsh, general condition etc)
Again, your help & comments very gratefully received.
