Sportwagon Selespeed For Sale
2001 Alfa Romeo 156 Sportwagon 2litre Twinspark with selespeed in black. 93K miles. MoT to Sept 2014. No tax, but this could be arranged. Full leather interior in excellent condition. Clarion CD Radio, electric windows all round. 147 Alloys with good tyres, new exhaust rear box. Front suspension arms replaced in the last year. Paintwork is reasonable. Someone has cleaned up the rear arches and the paint match is not brilliant but it is solid enough.
Bought initially for spares as it has had a lot of new parts recently but decided that it is too good to scrap. Stuck it in for an MoT and it passed. Engine runs very well (it was replaced by Alfa under warranty at 32k miles). Although the selespeed gearbox changes up and down as it should there is a bad bearing rumble that sounds as if it is coming from the differential.
It might improve with a change of oil but because of the gearbox noise I have priced it to sell at £399. PM me or phone me on 01851 612372 for more details or photos. I am on the Western Isles of Scotland so I realise that it will be too far away for most people.
