A year and bit on from my first and last Alfa, I have the want on me again. :cool:

My bro just bought a 08' 159 Ti :cool: , a quick spin in it has me lusting over the brand again.

This time I'll do it right!!, I'm looking for a project car, something that needs a bit of work wishbones, belts etc etc.
I'll spend the next couple of months getting it road worthy and try to do everything bar the belts myself.
Budget is extremely limited, so if anyone has a Sportwagon going cheap please let me know.

Thanks

Padz on here is selling a 1.8TS but it's a saloon - quite a bit cheaper than that might suit you...

Anymore details on Padz saloon??
See below & good luck with the hunt :thumbs:

Hey lads , does anyone want my 156 1.8 ? She needs some work ( camshaft sensor & starter motor mainly) but it would be an awful shame to scrap her as she has a 156 reg plate ! I would fix her but I have to fix my other 156 (timing belt slipped ! ) so if any of you want her , let me know before I scrap her at the weekend ! Thanks !

Thanks David, I sent him a PM.

Just phoned that silver spotwagon on donedeal again.

Its been off the road for 1 year and it needs clutch, wishbones, belts, battery and a couple of tyres.

Hmm any ideas on how much a clutch would cost?

I think Gerry in Ti would budget around €700....
First figure in my head for the lot is €1500....

Yeah it maybe too far gone plus it was used as work van, commercial stickers down the sides etc so I'd say its had a hard enough life.



Next stop Padz 156. To be continued...........................................

That looks a cracker for the money, did you get out to look at it in he end? If not I'm in Meath so if its close enough by I could give it the once over for you.
No, I didn't have a minutes free time last weekend :rant:, I'm praying its still available this weekend.
Thanks for offer but my brother would hugely insulted if I didn't take him along for his opinion.

This is my bro's current steed.

Kev,

My temp gauge goes over 90 when idling in traffic etc.
The 156 gauges are notorious for 'variations/inaccuracies.'

No it wasn't me :cry:

There is a lot of talk about redundancies in my work, so I'll put the hunt on hold until I know where I stand with my job. :eek:
