Hi again....Long time since I've been on here and even then hardly posted. So, I'm a car restorer in Oxfordshire, specialising in BMW, Mercedes and anything euro except French. I've had 7 145's, 9 156's, 2 155's, 2 Alfetta GTV's, 1 junior, 1 Spider S3, 1 Sud Ti,........currently have a 156 V6 24V in 612/a with black leather and 17" 147 alloys. Also will be bidding on a S4 Spider on 24th of this month. Have a Lancia Thema 8.32 and a Ferrari 400 Carb, manual, RHD, Maserati Quatroporte V6 Twin Turbo and a Maserati 3200GT. As usual...the V6 twin turbo doesn't work at the moment.....blew a gearbox seal and no boost...so searching for a box which iirc is the same as the box from the E28/24/34 BMW, works well as I have three of them as well. My current daily is the Alfa 156 V6 and a 1985 BMW E28 M535i. .........or a Nissan Cube.....of all things! anyway....that's me. 156 goes off to Smart-Chips on Sat for a remap, removed the picnic table boot lid and replaced with a normal one.

Just bought another 145 1.8TS. It's a low mile car and I've just done the rear shocks (with Monroe parts) and a new clutch and belt kit. New tyres, brakes, height adjuster on seat removed. Also fitted a nicer 147 Sport steering to my 156 v6 and a lip spoiler. The mapping seems to have helped a bit....most of the power is now between 3500 and 5000 rpm.
