    Hello all, My dad has a 1.4 MA Lusso on the optional 17 inch turbine wheels and complains that there is a lot of road noise coming from the back. Having recently done a two hour round-trip in his back seat I must say I agree, it gets a bit wearing back there after a while. So for Christmas...

  14. The Eternal Question... How many rolls of loft insulation can you fit in a 156??

    Motoring Images
    :confused:Answer: 5 this time (1 in the boot) But probably 7 if the boot had been totally clear, and no Mum in the passenger seat. Builders of the UK take note, why do you need a big ugly van?? When you can ride about in style, in the ultra practical 156... I must admit when I got to it...

  20. Changing the under-carpet insulation on a 147!?

I've a price for a new piece from Mangoletsi (about £30...
