156 owners advice
Posted 29 March 2008 - 05:49 AM
spin". ur totally right nine2five4, its totally a different pleasure
drivin an alfa, something u cant put in words.
amir, if ur planning to get a 156 a friend of mine selling off his car.
but to be frank, AR 156 is not a low maintenance car, its slightly costly
and a lilttle cranky at times. i own one 156 n so far i never had much
problem with the car untill i got in a bad accident couple of weeks back
n the car is total loss. but unfortunately my another friend who bought
the same model is not so lucky, he`s like spending at least 1k every
month jz to fix it up. if u see the lifetime of the actuator for this car
is totally unpredictable.. some last for 100k km some maybe bout 30k km.
u must be very careful when doing even a small modifiction for this car.
for example, if u planning to put ###### filter, yes it sounds better at the
same time ur maf sensor will kong faster. u got to learn soo many things
before u get one of those. so yea amir, think carefully and make ur
mind.. i could be wrong but u can always seek for advice from a
specialist like ah jin in goodwork auto or his brother tiong in mega
auto. good luck bro.

problems with the car, even selespeed. some have non-stop problems. which
is why its very important to buy the car from an enthusiast with a known
service history with a reputable mechanic. and having a good alfa
specialist mech makes all the difference in the ownership experience.
what ever the case may be, parts and labour will certainly never be as
cheap as a japanese car.

145 QV, pm me. remember, enthusiast car for enthusiats at enthusiast
price. I will not entertain stupid questions from cheapo ahbengs or mat
rempits wanting a good pedigree car but not wanting to pay the price.

like a jazz or something is certainly more practical - smaller, more fuel
efficient - and more reliable.
but for motorway driving and longer distances, the alfa will be faster,
more comfortable, safer and less tiring to drive longer distances.
depends on what kind of driving u do, i guess.
