I will be talking to him hopefully this week. I may be doing some work on it or maintenance. Since I sold my 164, I might be interested in this if at a good price.

Was hoping / waiting for this to come up on BAT as mentioned earlier in this thread. Did you decide it better to sell privately?

Sorry for that Paul. The car hasnīt been sold or advertised, but the seller has a busy life/business....it will be on BaT soon, but this takes longer than it used to.

US-Legal, WA State-Titled, 1993 Alfa Romeo 155 TS 2.0 5-Speed Manual

"I don't want to bleed all over this OP's thread, but this is something a bit more rare"

No problem with that, your 155 TS looks nice, and itīs getting hard to find good ones in general. GLWS. I live in Spain, so if anyone is interested, in 25 year old AlfasI can source good rust-free cars here, occasionally V6 models as well. But there are not many to choose from!

There are a couple of things in your post that I wouldnīt agree. Maybe itīs how I read the syntax but a 155TS is a standard model, whereas the Q4 is a low build car (2700 is usually quoted), aimed to homologate racing in Europe, so much rarer than a 2.0TS. Many Q4s have been badly modified in the past as well, so original survivors are hard to find.

Iīve had both series of 155 8v and 16v, and the second series 16v wide-bodied car was by far my favourite (over 120K miles...). The 16v engine is excellent, revvy, smooth and reliable (if you change and check oil as you should, and change cambelts/tensioners at 36K miles/3 years). The 8V has better torque, but the main thing about the 16v is that the second series wide body 155 has quick rack steering, lower and wider stance, plus the meaner look which all transform the car. I put Eibach anti-sway bars on mine and it was beautifully balanced.

Itīs not just me saying that, contemporary reports agreed. The first series 155 generally disappointed, particularly in its bland looks, whereas the 16v car was very well-received by the press, often saying that this is what the 155 should.ve been in the first place.
