help me identify this model of 156

hello everyone, i need a little help identifying the exact model of 156 i am looking at buying.

its a 1997 one and is completley standard, it came from the factory with a wide arch kit, front and rear splitters which match the wide arch kit and a rear spoiler unlike the really tall one everyone else has.

its a 2.5 V6 model but which one?

Thanks!
Ryan Edge

Re: help me identify this model of 156

mmmmm, not sure as to what its actually called, but I've seen quite a few tidylooking 156's with said subtle bodykit on them.
is it not something to do with the speedgear/telespeed gearbox that also affects bodystyling? just I've seen at least 3different 156's with the telespeed gearbox and having 17" white alloys (one has graphite alloys) subtle side skirts, but very low front splitter with support, arch kits, small spoiler, low rear splitter


other than that there is autodelta, the alfa equivilent of abarth

Thought you were having problems insuring the Marea? How the hell are you going to insure a 2.5 V6 Alfa?

Re: help me identify this model of 156

hes stupid your sooooo lucky the insurance agreed to give you that quote for the marea.. they will rape you of every penny you have if you get the 156.

why bother? youve made such a fuss about getting the marea insured and running and now you wanna ditch it before youve even driven it Sounds like me, but atleast I drive my cars before wanting to sell em

My thoughts entirely!

I was getting quotes of about £1300 on a 1.9 jtd 156 (and ive been driving nearly 6 years!)

The 2.5 V6 156 an insurance group 16! Are you made of money, Ryan? These are the types of cars normal people buy when theyre over 25!

I can buy one next year

I gotta agree with everyone.. You've spent a fair bit of money and time fixing her up and you're going to abandon her? Shame on you!

Re: help me identify this model of 156

alfas tend to be much higher insurance groups than their fiat equivilents.

e.g fiat bravo 1.6 16v = group 6-8
alfa 145 1.6 16v TS = group 14

the diesels are worse!
fiat stilo 1.9mjtd 115bhp = group 5-6
alfa 147 1.9 jtdm 120bhp = group 16

Re: help me identify this model of 156

Bulldog man, slow down a bit, is this a bit of a teddy out of pram purchase, cos your struggling to sort Tax for the Marea?

Think about it, by the time you get everything sorted for the 156, and for what it'll cost you in time and effort etc, you could pay for a taxi to work and home again, then a taxi to get the Marea after you've sorted tax, which will be in the morning right?

Chill dude! I know it's frustraiting not being able to use the Marea but you're chasing your tail and getting no-where fast in buying another car!

Hope this all works out for you!
