Well I am now the owner of a 155... Thanks for all your help before I bought it! Not sure how to post up pictures of it, but have given it a go!

@ Alfa155TS, thats a 145 cloverleaf badge mate, the 155 'cloverleaf' was the cloverleaf 4 or Q4.

@allanh, nice choice it looks to be a good clean honest motor from the pics.

Thanks guys... It seems a great car! Also pretty quick... Is the speedo accurate??? 60mph comes up easily...!
2nd gear! As for the steering, almost perfect!
So its not a proper cloverleaf... Its a 2.0 16v, cloth interior, no aircon, no sunroof, elec front windows, Momo wheel and gear knob and 16" black speedlines.... I believe its a sport then?

It's a real sports saloon....not many so focused these days! It's mile munching abilities for such an old design (and one that has more Fiat dna than alfa) are outstanding.....I use my all the time on regular 300+ mile dashes across mixed roads...not a lot will keep with it on the twisty bits!

60 is about 8 - 9 seconds from memory on 16v TS.....not bad for an old smoker:thumbs: speedo accuracy is not bad - mine readss between 4 - 6% fast dependent on speed (when compared to the GPS speedo...assuming that's accurate!)

Aye, they're great cars ...

Just make sure you check the oil level regularly, I would do it every week, and especially after a long journey or a full spirited drive.

Keep the oil towards the TOP level marker.
Obviously keep all the other fluids up to their levels.

Make sure you get the belts/tensioners, and possibly variator changed every 36,000.
That should make your motoring life a joy for longer.

And keep smiling :D

That looks great... I also found one that I am more than just contemplating to buy..... in that colour. I also have a set of black Speedlines in reserve with a frriend, so my car will look exactly like yours..... Just need to save up so cash, the owner will wait for me.

It will be great to have my bum in a 155 again, its been 7 years..........
