I have owned my 2001 156 veloce since June, but only just registered to this site.
It seems a very helpful place for common issues with the alfas.....a few of these have happened to me personally since owning the car.
i bought the vehicle at the end of june last year,with a full service history and cambelt change after having lusted over them for a while, and decided to take the plunge despite the scare tactics people use to put you off alfas.
After 5 days of ownership, i found my car to have a major problem with the bottom end, the problem being that the cams had been starved of oil and followers virtually rounded off. (last lady was a female, who im guessing didn't really know about the oil consumption on these things!)
Anyway, after what seemed like an eternity i got my new engine in, and can now finally begin to enjoy this car.
I have the 1.8 ts veloce with sp2, and i can honestly say it is the best car i have owned.
Comfortable, great to look at, and never fails to start.
Look forward to posting more on this site soon. :thumbs:

Hi Scott, A warm welcome from the Lincs Mob !!!

We are quite an active little group here so it would be very nice to see you in the Lincs Lounge as well as in person.

Our next Meet is a Saturday afternoon one on the 6th March, I'm hoping that it will be a good 'un, they usually are.

Follow the Links to see what is going on and join in, I can pretty much say that you won't regret it. Apart from myself everyone else in the Lincs Section are very nice people.........

From the Lincs Lounge also follow Links and see what we have been up to last year, some cracking Meets and some Great pictures.

Don't forget to look at the " Stickies " right on top of the Lincs Lounge page.
