Hi everyone,

I need a bit of help! So far I have fell in love with two 156 that I have been to see from Evans Halshaw, both have had the same problem, they have both had head gaskets blown and they wont sell them now. Both were low mileage 22k on a 54 plate and 34k on a 55 plate. Is this a known problem?
I am now looking to travel to Southport to have a look at another 156 which is 180 miles away and I was thinking of buying an ECU lead and the diagnostic program, do you think it would help me find any faults with the car?
Thanks in advance
Daz

i dont see how that is modified dude, chavved up more like :/ plus i'd go for a 1.8 its generally thought that the 1.6 is gutless in a 156, but facelifts are very nice to look at.
