Yeah thanks mate. I know I am taking my chances a little but the money I am going to spend is small and that's half the fun of this kind of "bangernomics".Parker's reckon that the electrics can be a source of gremlins, and the clutch is about £600 (!!!) to replace.
Personally, I prefer the looks of the ZS on the outside, but the interior of an alfa does look to be a nice place to be...
I think the design and the interior of the 156 is the best feature, the italian's have class when it comes too this. Reading up the 2 litre T Spark does 32 mpg.Thats exactly the engine I am going for. 2003 model though. Whats the mpg like? Does it handle ok? I'm not looking for a sports car (I might get the mgf Trophy for that as well), but is it ok for a saloon?
