Alfa 156 going to waste

Hi All

I have a Black 2.0 156 lying up for the last year. I think the big ends are gone but the car itself is in very good nick. I had just replaced the timing belt, tensioners, water pump, variator, plugs and badges when the engine went

If the car is any use to anyone let me know.

Hi, Ive a 01 166 2.0TS with bent valves, untill I split the engine I dont know how bad the damage is, I may get away with a replacement head. How much are you looking for the 156?
Regards, Kieran

Hi, I had a look at your earlier posts when you got the car and feel gutted for you, it sounded like a nice car and if I take it, it will end up being scrapped which would be a shame. We got good value out of our 166 (about 5 years) and the only thing I put into it was front upper and lower wishbones earlier this summer. My plan is to pick up an engine (or head if the bottom end isn't damaged) for handy money and try to sell the car on. I think any more than 500 and it wont be worth doing it, even running, a 01 166TS with 80k on it is probably only worth 2000?

Yeah true enough, I was hoping someone on here maybe had a crashed Alfa 156 with a good engine so my car might be of some use. Its in good nick outside and spotless inside with cream leather. Would be a shame to scrap it. I was thinking about 800 to 1k.

no offence but in these times, no one is going to pay more than 600 for the whole car

EDIT: he wanted this car for http://carsireland.ie/detail.php?ad_...%26amp%3Bg%3D0 900 euros

but look at the price now

EDIT: he wanted this car for Alfa Romeo 156 2.5 Petrol (1999) for sale in Tipperary - Used car on Cars Ireland .ie 900 euros

but look at the price now
No offense taken at all, as I said in my first tread I have no idea what the car is worth, I just think its an awful waste. If someone did think they could use it and offered 600 id had no problem.
