More than likely buying a V6 in Leeds.

The thing is it's poverty spec.......BUT it has a brand new (recon) engine from Italautos in it and looks mint. I would be looking to put leather and suspension on/ in it immediately.


So my questions are. Does anyone have an interior for sale on here (preferably tan)?

Cheapest / best place to buy suspension?

Also looking for a red boot lid as it has the BFOW and i hate them. (can they be taken off witout the lid having holes.

Could also be looking for some teledials.

In t he words of Terry Tibbs: "Talk to me!"

Have a word with Autolusso they may have a leather interior for it, they may also be able to help with the other bits.

There were a couple of teledials on donedeal really cheap. And with the boot, once you drill the holes, it stays there Unless you want a boot full of holes

If you could please Paddy. I need to contact the seller tomorrow to make sure all is good. hopefully he can meet me somewhere closer a but closer to Luton (east midlands airport). I think i'll be taking a trip down to Autolusso to pick up an interior and some wheels and some GTA suspension.. (if the funds will allow)

Unfortunately some genius in the alfa factory decided to put the BFOW on the 156. Why i will never know.

Pat in wexford may have a leather interior but it may no be tan. But then Tan can wear badly.

As Damien says Tan leather is one of the worst colours to get pristine, Black is much better from a wear and tear point of View. Pat sold us a Full black set of leather for the 156 and its mint . On our travels looking for a replacement for the 146 every Tan leather interior looked really worn. Every mark shows up on the tan leather as opposed to black .

In fairness that might be a bit of a generalisation the leather in mine is close to perfect, it just really depends car to car I've seen many a black leather that is cracked to hell

There are exceptions Gav but in all the cars we have looked at over the time of ownership black seems to be better for wear . Your car is exceptional imo

It's red Gav but i'm trying to contact the seller with no Joy so it's looking like it's a no go. The hunt continues.....


Put the feelers if you can lads.

Nice, proper colour as well

How about Nuvola? Lots of mileage but lots of service history as well and Redline know there stuff as well

Yeah Gav i have been all over Piston heads for the last 2 weeks. That Nuvola one is just too high on the mileage for me and have a look at how high the handbreak is!

I was looking at one with 60k but it's 2 grand sterling. A bit out of my price range.

Is this the other one you were looking at? I'd say keep pestering him they obviously want to seel and the only reason why it is cheaper is becasue it isn't from a dealer

If you buy the second one Klap should buy the wheels from you, they are the best wheels for a 166 IMHO

No he won't unless he's got a 156, 156 wheels don't fit the 166, different PCD
