Buy/Swap/Sell [Announce ONLY] / ALFA 156 MONZA
« Last post by CARINGBUSH on Today at 11:40:33 AM »
      ALFA   156  MONZA
Bought new from Trevor Stanley in Geelong in 2002. All its driving has been on country highways and it is in impeccable condition. It has always been garaged and serviced by Seb at Mauceri Motors.
The interior is faultless and exterior excellent. I would hope the car is worth $6,500.00
It is registered to March 2018 -1EA-1FK
It has never missed a beat. The Busso V6 Auto/Manual is considered to be the best of the 156 model
Vin  ZAR932000.00199089
ENGINE NUMBER  32401
A 2002  Silver 2.5 litre 156  V6 Busso engine with a H pattern gearbox, Monza side skirts, Red leather interior and  Series III Mag Wheels. Auto is torque converter with optional manual gear selection via a H pattern selector (not selespeed)
Meticulously maintained and always garaged. It has never been involved in an accident. The average travel range for this car is 150,00-280,000 Klms ours has just ticked over 125,000. It is driven every day.
 This engine has been the staple for Alfa Romeos Motorsport Heritage for decades. Jeremy Clarkson rates this as one of the best looking and sounding engines ever produced "more of a heart than an engine and of unparalleled smoothness''
I have owned, nursed and cherished Alfas for 35 years
Recent work includes Cam/Timing belt, Water Pump, Lower Control Arm, New Discs, Disc pads, New battery and Service
I have now retired and my wife works part time (she also has a work car for patient treatment) so we no longer need 3 cars
The other vehicles at home are an AWD 159 V6 with  60,000 klms and a current model AWD Turbo Lancer with 50,000klms. We live in Ballarat.

My apologies, I didn't read that last post properly. You are looking at road tyres.

The AD08R's are a great choice.

David, I recall Beninca's modified the inner pistons so you might be able to send them just the calipers or pistons for the mod but highly recommend as have not had to adjust the handbrake cable since!

Re the speedo cable, do you have two cables or one? One new cable should solve the problem.

Agree the Ronals look great but I am a traditionalist and love the Speedlines. They are fairly solid for an alloy rim so should be able to sit around for a prolonged period.

Wow 996 turbo would be a good thing albeit a touch bland compared to the Italian stuff. My Exige SC is a track car and also has a Jim 2bular rear muffler - a pure work of art!

Cheers

As a general rule the better the tyre the shorter it's lifespan.

Weigh up what you're after.

Honestly though, If you're a beginner I wouldn't even be thinking about putting R tyres on the car for your first outing, some good road tyres will be fine for now. You aren't going to set any lap records I promise you. Work on your driving first, then try get more out of the car once you've found it's limits safely.

Hi there everyone

I have just purchased a GT 156 2007 and love the shape and its comfort. It didn't have up to date log books (yes I know I should have checked) when I bought it, however I love the car and want to get the belts looked at and anything else which needs doing. Can someone please let me know or recommend a mechanic on the Gold Coast to do the necessary work as I haven't owned an Alfa before now.

Thanks for any help.

Helen
