General Comments:

I was skeptic when I bought it due to high mileage. It is a terrific car, with no problems at all. The usual Alfa reputation does not apply here! Handles like on rails and is very fast. The only problem is high engine noise above 5.000 rpm. Mine has a hole in the exhaust and I suggest that every 155 owner drills one too, because the sound is fantastic!! I am very happy with this car. Has very spacious interior and the boot is huge. I drive it for 3.000 km per month on average and I take long trips. This car is made for driving pleasure and you can find it at very low prices.
