Hey all!

How long would a 156 1.8 2002 with 77,000 miles on the clock last with regular servicing etc etc?

And also, would said car be worth £3450 at a Alfa specialist?

Many thanks as always everyone :thumbs:

Don't know the expected life of 1.8TS with regular servicing, to some degree probably depends on how it has been driven. I would have thought that £3450 was at the upper end for a 156 even with FSH. I have seen 2004 and 2005 facelift models at under £4K with FSH.

Have a look on Pistonheads or similar site.

nah i would say that's rather expensive, i paid £2500 for my 156 with Full Service History and only 53,000 on the clock, no problems flawless condition and around 6 months MOT and 5 months Tax mine also is the 1.8 and the 2002 facelift model

For your info, I recently sold my 2004 facelift 2.0JTS with 68,400 on the clock for £3250. I felt I did well TBH. Though must be said I think prices are far higher in the south east for Alfas in particular. Look north for a bargain I would say . . . .

Bought my 89k 1.8TS veloce year 2001 on a Y plate in Met Black in Oct'09, utterly mint apart from the skirts startng to come unstuck a little, full tan leather and 4 new good tyres. Paid £1200, then spend £150 on replacement front arb.

No problems since, car has FSH and a new Cambelt £5k miles ago from an Alfa dealer.

Friend from work has just bought (Last month) an '03 2.0 JTS veloce in Silver full leather and 60k with FSH and recent Cambelt for £2800, its his second 156.

Last November I bought a 1.6TS 2001 plate with 53,000 full service history ex showroom car with metallic red paint, full red leather, old man wooden stering wheel, air con for £2800 and I thought I paid over the odds for it. Its in great condition. I've probably got to get a new cambelt in april though because its been 4 years but only 20,000m, and a new thermostat.

If you think its worth it then spend the money, but haggle like a mo fo. I couldnt say no once I saw mine, just got £200 off.

I paid £3,650 for my New Shape 156 2.0 JTS, with 65k on the clock, that was from a dealer too

I think you would be paying over the odds for that one, keep a look out on Pistondeads and Autotrader, dont rush into buying the first one either.

I know its hard but buy with your head.

If only they made valve chambers so the engine wont be damaged by a dropped cambelt.
That would save alot of alfa's.
Mine has about 115000 on the clock and going strong.
