Right, i've finally decided that my Lotus Exige S1 is going to be put up for sale and with the proceeds i'm going to buy a 156 GTA SW hopefully in red with black and tan leather interior.....if I can find one!

It still has to be the most gorgeous 'practical' car out there!

In the meantime my 156 Veloce SW will have to suffice!

So if anyone fancies a Lotus, or the last ever Vespa 50S off the production line from the late 1980s with only 5kms on the clock or even a 2001 Aprilia Grand Prix Racing Repluca RS125 in the very rare matt black, matt red and matt silver colour scheme with only 30 miles on the clock from new then give me a shout!

Alfa 156 GTA here I come!

I Want A 156 Gta Sw!!!!
Why, of course you do! :thumbs:

No doubt about that. Sometimes I fold down the seats in mine and load up with planks and bags of cement, and sometimes I unscrew the rear diffuser, snap on the tow-hook and drag a trailer full of trash. Most of the time Bella is free of such chores, though. Whatever goes on, the ride and the looks never fail to seduce :D

Still, I bet that Exige is rather fun. Don't think I would mind having one...

Fair enough. But just bear in mind with only 106 sportwagon GTAs in the country you're choice will be limited. :eek:

OA :)

Hi, I'm the owners of Solo Italia Ltd, The Alfa 156 GTA we have for sale is stunning in every way, But as pointed out by that she needs a good valet, The problem that we have is that as a small Italian car specialists we are very busy & cars don't always get clean in time for the internet photo's, but she will be fully valeted before shes sold. If you need a better idea of what we do please visit our website Solo Italia Ltd - Drive by passion - Home Page I hope this is OK to put of website on the post ???. Rick :thumbs:


PS If you really like this GTA don't miss out as she wont hang around for long.

Where in the world are you - have you tried a GTA SW - if it helps get in touch - I'm happy for you to try mine and check it over, so that when you find one it might help to have tried another as a comparison - however mines not for sale.

Hi Rick,

Good of you to take the time to post.

Don't take my comments personally BUT 30 seconds with a 'dirt devil' would have made all of the difference.

My usual rule of thumb is 'if the footwell is dirty then usually the rest of the car is dirtier'!

I really need to move some of my collection on before I even go looking for GTAs but thanks again for your post, you certainly do seem to have a massive stock of very reasonably priced Alfas.

Good luck with the sale.

Hi KNIEVEL77,

I take your point but the main aim was to get her out for sale, When she's been valeted all the photo will be changed to show how good she really is & we don't take comments personally :).

I don't know if any one has talked about us on here before because I've only joined yesterday & our main business is Fiat Coupe 20vT's so we are on the Coupe forum quite a bit, But if any one neds help with stuff that we do please just call us on 01865 372111.

Rick

Don't take this wrongly, because all you've done so far is try to be helpful, and you get a big :thumbs: from me for that - but if you're mentioning your business in many of your posts, it would be a good idea to contact the moderating team on here and just explain who you are and what you're about.
We've had some bad spam attacks in the past, so they are a bit careful about people advertising.
If you contact them, I'm sure everything will be fine.
(A PM to OperationAlfa who has posted on this thread might be a good first step)

The GTA will be valeted on Monday so give me a break because we are very very busy with other sales ie Sold My Ferrari today. I will post new photos on when shes been cleaned.
The last owner dropped all the paper work in to day & I can say that she has a full service history with Fish Bros Fiat & Alfa in Swindon & also I have the bill for the engine replacment of wich also included a clutch kit/cam belt kit/new starting motor/air mass & all this cam to £6,509.18 including VAT, The engine was £3,300.19+vat the rest is parts & labour. So the question is are you buying a GTA or Just the GTA engine lol.

Glad you are SO busy! Always wanted a GT4 but was too 'scared' of the maintenance costs to buy one!

Hi Jason,,
Yep, still going well, just your usual wear and tear items for this MOT, still cost £845 though!

I understand from the above the posts that the car has not been valeted but that engine looks filthy for an engine that'sonly done 12000 miles, I'm not saying it hasn't had a new one but it looks more like a second hand unit to me, or is it just that all the old covers, intake runners etc were fitted from the old one?.........:rolleyes:
