|alfavirusnz||Interesting...My wife has fallen for our 156 and loves it and doesn`t want to drive our NZ new E36 manual BMW anymore which I think is the better car - I want to keep it and get rid of either the 156 or our Punto but a hatchback is very useful and I don`t want 3 "modern" drivers.|

Ahhhhhh....the 156 money-pit:'( Well it goes fine now and my wife loves driving it everyday and it looks nice. Latest issue is airbag light not going out, following on from clutch slave going, upper cam seal blowing, leading to a full cambelt waterpump service. So, in answer to your question Richard, no not really had that great a run. Nick at West European auto in contrast was probably quite glad i bought the car:-P
Agree re. the engine leaving me cold also. Heart of it is that I think the 156 is weak. Hard to describe online, but in comparison to the Alfetta series, and even the 164, I continually have a sneaking feeling that something else is going to break on it. This was brought into contrast earlier last week after i test drove a (pretty poor condition) 75TS, even that felt stronger than the 156. But my wife loves the 156 and it is lovely looking. They suit silver too.

|alfavirusnz||Aaron, love the colour of your 156. I was trying to aquire one the same colour as yours but none available so bought a resale silver version as fell for the red leather interior (manual). Have you had a good run with yours so far? I`m indifferent but need a new set of plugs first to judge performance. Feels boring.|

Nighty Night Alfas
Thought I would revive this thread with a pic of the fleet about to go to bed.

One was imported a year or so back. A stunning car to see in the flesh and very under-rated handling wise. Phenomenal grip.
Apart from the NZ SZ the only other I've seen was a yellow RZ parked outside Monaco casino. Not as impressive given all the other cars that were also parked there!

|Dean Peterken||I may have been dreaming but I'm pretty sure I saw a Red SZ driving into Cambridge last Saturday morning. Are there any on the road here? I have seen a couple in Europe many years ago, they still look as striking as ever.|

AROCNZ at Ferrymead Heritage Park, Aug 2012
Nice collection of Alfas at Ferrymead recently.

|Ledzep||Most likely belongs to John and Ailsa Cornelius who recently moved to Geraldine. I think it's a Bell&Colville turbo conversion - it's a lovely car. John has been President of AROCNZ.|

Alfetta GTV Turbo
Saw a beautiful, red Alfetta GTV Turbo in Geraldine today. I think it was 1980. Didn't have my camera to take a photo unfortunately.
Anyone know it?
