No but just one comment on it, it shows 63K on the clock which is miles, it's advertised as 39K Miles/ 63K Km. Should be 100K+ Km

I think it's just a mistake(wrong number in wrong place). Any way I have an AlfaDiag and cable so I will check it.

No NCT mentioned? Are those OEM Alfa alloys? Are they white? Or are they 3rd party with Alfa caps? Not normally a fan of white wheels on an Alfa and they don't look well with the silver.

Best of luck if you go for it-it's exactly what I would be looking for in a 2nd Alfa (V6).

I'd say so also, just to be aware of it regarding service etc.

There were white multi-spoke alloys available as an option. I think the car is probably Nuvola Blue ( the flip colour) as it's described as Blue in the advert.

On closer inspection, it does look like a Hot Wheels version alright!

Couple of dings on the on boot/side as well.

The alloys look OEM alright, but white with that body colour looks odd (to me).

The mileage isn't bad at all for a car that age (any chance it's clocked.....)

I don't like it too, so if I buy it this alloys will be for sale(one of the most beautiful are 5 hole teldials). I'll go tommorow or sunday to see this car with the laptop of course. I hope it's not clocked and engine is in good cond.

That car was meant to be a good one. It was on octane before and for 1600 euro it's cheap.

Is it just me or are the bumpers a different colour to the body, they dont appear to be painted in the flip paint? Like I can talk about bumpers being a different colour!!!!

Have to agree about the alloys, a nice set of 156 GTA's or 8C replicas look great on a 156.

I'm almost certain it's the blue/green/silver/grey flip paint.

Beware that Alfadiag can give incorrect mileage readings due to software issues as even some cars give wrong readings on the examiner

very low mileage for a 12 year old..... I dont think they are oem wheels if they are not and there is no decent service history I'd chance my arm to knock another 100 or 2 off the price. Then again it is seriously cheap for a V6

Ahh they all look like that. Compared to metal bumpers will age differently and come out a different colour.

At that age I guess the main things to check are front ARB, front upper and lower arms, have the belts been done and check for a heavy or slipping clutch.
These engines have hydraulic tappets so shouldnt be rattly like the older 12 valvers.
