My 156 died a few weeks ago and as much as it hurts to do so I'm gonna have to break it for spares :cry:

If you need any parts let me know, I will be breaking over next couple of weeks. All parts are available apart from the rad & centre console (already taken!), but there are a few new / up to 1 month old parts on there as it went in for a load of work & MOT days before the bottom end went!!

It's a 2.0TS 1999 (V Reg) with the nice 16" alloys, painted & decal'd calipers, drilled & grooved discs all round, small spoiler side skirts etc...I'll post a pic on here later. Its done 83k and had all its belts etc last done at 74k

3 wheels have brand new tyres (Dunlop SP2000E - only done 60 miles since fitted)
Brake pads (Mintex) & all 4 discs are only 3 weeks old - have done less than 200 miles
Drivers side upper wishbone only 3 weeks old
Black leather MOMO interior & leather door cards all in great nick, seats are the ones with the stitched in alfa logo :thumbs:
Gearbox is a recently replaced one - it's from a '53 plate 2.0TS and has only done approx 23k
Front exhaust section 6 months old
Clear side repeaters

If you want anything call text or email me (or post here!) on 07725 940470 or [email protected]

Once I've had enough of breaking it its off to a scrappy!

Whereabouts are you? I could do with a front bumper and bonnet (at the moment I'm just waiting for one in the right colour to show up on ebay so no hurry for me really and I don't want to pay top dollar if I'm going to have to respray it lol) :)

non selespeed I'm afraid - mine died about 6 months ago but I was lucky and managed to get one for £150 from a '53 2.0TS that was being broken, cost £400 labour but that's nothing like your 4k!!!

Its a shame you're breaking it. What died on you, the engine or gearbox?

Bottom end of the engine went this time - was racing a Z4 up the M40 :cheese: lots of high revving and next thing there was smoke everywhere and no power!! Got it to the garage and they showed me the shattered cylinder housing etc, I'd have put a new engine in but it costs more than the car was worth :( At least it died while having fun though!! Gearbox is fine, when it broke before it was because I'd been ignoring the ominous sticking of 4th gear for a few months - next thing I knew it got stuck in 4th and the gears were knackered (hence the swift replacement of the box with a far newer one!!)

I've got the car right near Fox FM / Mini factory although I live in Bicester. Took loads of bits off yesterday & gonna carry on this week after work - what parts are you interested in?

What interior have you got in it? I need a replacement cigarette lighter and ashtray unit on the dash. My one didn't appreciate being hammered shut with my fist the other day :cry:

I only have the passenger side mirror available now, say £10 for that and £2.50 for the lenses?

Steering wheels in perfect condition (black leather), the wheels are in v good condition too but on one of them the plastic Alfa cap in the middle is dented where i put the wheel face down in the boot by accident! 3 of them have brand new tyres (Dunlop SP2000E, done 60 miles since fitted) as it had its MOT right before the engine blew
