Hello,
Sadly my 156 2.4jtd sportwagon is about to bite the dust. One thing it needs is a new steering pump, and it is not really drivable. So as it is a tow away job, then a breakers seems the most likely option. But thought I'd just ask here first, to see if anyone has any ideas, or knows of an Alfa specialist in the South West who might be interested in buying it.

Any suggestions?

Cheers,
Steve

i would probably look to advertise it as a spares or repair job, then the onus is on the buyer to tow it away.
IF you just wanted shot of it, there are several places that will literally pick it up on a flat bed and take it away for free. but i am sure there will be someone on here that would be interested. hope it helps :thumbs:

I'm after this very car at the moment!! Can you give me a few more details, age, mileage.

Would you be intrested in a 147 2.0 TS in exchange, its a little damaged at the moment due to some little scrote at the weekend but will be all repaired in the next week or two.

Andyg,
No I don't need a 147 I'm afraid, as we need something different. If you are interested, then I can send you some details by mail perhaps. Long time since I've been on this website, and I don't see a 'pm' button anywhere. But if give me your mail address, then I can tell you more. In short though:
It has about 136k miles on the clock, 1999 model, Angel tuning re-map, loads of bills for the last 3 years, involving suspension rebuilds, etc, electric sunroof fitted. needs new steering pump, probably a new water pump, and gear lever has stopped self-centring. Perhaps I should stick it in the classifieds here actually. That is probably the sensible thing to do.

Sadly it has a few too many miles on for me, I do about 25k a year so will soon push that up over 150k. Thank you for the extra details though and hope it goes to a good home as it sounds more than recoverable.

It may help you, but I had a non self centering problem with my gear stick, turned out it was just a loose gear linkage, few turns of a spanner and it was sorted.
