Hi there, first time post.

Looking at a 156 Selespeed TS on a X plate. 40k from new with full service history, and new timing belt fitted. Any thing I should look at, that may cause a worry. Any advice welcome. Cloth seats fitted.

Hi

New on here too, and have an Alfa 2000 156 selespeed with 98k now.. has its days and I think all Alfa will have some fault lol but the drive and pleasure makes it worth it..

Being honest although mine cost me a small fortune, I would say its really lack of knowledge that makes them scary. ( My Alfa dealer and local specialist are both as bad )

Everywhere you read people had their car miss diag before getting to the root of the fault..

I would say spend some time too at looking for a good mechanic who really knows their Alfa as it makes all the difference. ( not necessarily Alfa dealers )

They can make as much of a difference as finding a good car when it comes to ££ and ownership..

Dont be afraid to go on a long test drive even if its paying for fuel lol.

Cheers

Hi

Cant really say about the car but...

I would say look for a good mechanic who is really clued up on the selespeed/alfa engines. ( does not have to be dealership )

Well worth it, although mine has cost me tons ( via dealer miss diag and other garages not replacing the faulty part 1st time too ) its been an absolute joy when good.

Mine is now on 98k and few niggles at present and plenty of people will always slg off Alfa but they are the ones missing out. :0

Alfa 156 selesp
Thanks for the reply. The one I am looking at is priced at £2,295 from a garage. Full service history from main dealer. Just do not know these cars buts just love the look. Had a VX Calibra before (still have), and various VX Carltons including a GSI or3. But seen this car, and fell in love.....................

Main thing is, am I paying too much for it?
