Thanks, always liked the 155 especially the later wide track model, if I had a bit more space in the garage....

I remember during the eightys there were four of us from buttevant had Alfas, two Sprints and two Suds, we used to follow rallys and it was said to us on more than one occasion that we sounded like a swarm of bees from a distance as we headed down to the stages, there was a lovely sound from the boxer engine.

I normally overhaul them as it is only the spring and a washer that wears out on them... and never had an issue after
