Hi folks
My latest acquisition is an Alfa 156 selespeed that cost 100 off eBay, the power steering pump had imploded so that was the first job (replacement came from my spares car),
Then I knew the headlamps wouldn't pass an mot the way they were ( extremely yellowed) but five minutes with a paste made from baking soda and fairy liquid had them shining like a diamond.
Put the car through a half price mot at Eds Treads in Aylesbury, and all it needed was a tyre ( part worn for 25)
So all in the car has cost me 152.50
Very Happy

Looks like you got a bargain there, I had the 147 twinspark and never had an issue with it except it was too fast for me Seenothing

Definitely is a bargain, and the fun noise starts at 3k rpm Smile

Although had an Italian electrics moment this morning, that was solved by jiggling the fuse box a bit Smile
