Being Christmas, and all.....

And everyone is generous, i want a Alfa 156 .
I had one loved to bits, but the cats were gone and nct was due, then brother in law, planned to move to australia, long story short we swaps cars, now i have a hyundai coupe 2L, dont get get me wrong its nice car, i do enjoy driving and the look of it but i do miss an Alfa.

So, if anyone wants to change the car, i`ll swap it

Would you consider other models? [ 147/155/GTV ]
What engine size would you like?
What colour?
What years would you consider?

Does the 156 have 3 full belts in the back.
I think the 166 facelift got them but pre-facelift didn't.
Pat, you'll know?

I've seen pre-F/L 156's with 3 belts & F/L 156 without, there is no hard & fast rule

Your lucky but you might want to check a 156 as the centre seat is narrow enough in them...

I reckon you'd struggle to get two car seats and a near teenager into the back of a 156?

having 3 seats on the back is better than the 2 seat i have now on the hyundai. my youngest at moment is 2 1/2, and the oldest is 11, by the time my new baby born the 2 1/2 will be on a booster seat.
