Folks

Before I put it on the market I thought maybe some of the members here would be interested in this car. It rarely shows up in places like car zone and if it does it is usually of inferior spec. This car has full UK veloce spec with side skirts, black dials and steering wheel audio control.

I will be moving to US soon so it has to go, otherwise I wouldn't even consider selling it for the next few years as I put a lot of effort to keep it in top notch condition.

I've been driving this car for 2.5 years and it was trouble free driving. If it needed periodic service it was done with Gerry of TI autos. I wasn't saving money on this car so it's got a few nice upgrades like Superflex bushes, Ferrodo DS Performance brake pads with Motul racing RBF600 brake fluid. Tyres (Falken), brake discs relatively new too. Just after oil change (Silkolene Pro). Timing belt and oil pump done at 56000 (it is now at 79k).

It does 58mpg Sligo-Dublin with no granny driving.

If any of you is interested please pm me for more details. Hopefully new owner will find it as good as I did.

Thanks

Thanks Lads.Larger 17 rims were planned as well for next year to make it look even better. It has 16 at the moment.
It is really hard for me to let her go. You know yourself lads when you get slagged by all the people when buying Alfa. The more slagging I was given the more I loved the car as it never let me down. There will be sad feeling of missing somebody important for sure....She was even our wedding car...:cry:

Was just thinking today about my Alfa gap between 2002 and 2006.
Drove the missus mad, she convinced me I had to get one again...
Ended up with 3 + donor car!!!

Yep. your bet is spot on. I'm moving over for 2 years. If it was for one year only I would probably try to keep the car.
It's a bit funny that I actually can't wait coming back to Ireland again cause I'll be in for a hunt for new Alfa. Looks like 159 TBi TI is my favourite at the moment.
