1996 Alfa Romeo 155 TS 2.0 from UK and Ireland
If everybody in the world drove a 155, the world would be a happier place
Passenger wing mirror alloy split - fixed with metal glue.
Absolutely love it. First, don't go to dealerships for servicing any Alfa, go to specialists.
Lots of stuff to do to it when I bought it, but now that it's done she is humming.
The whole experience is great. I love the lines of the body and the exhaust note is fantastic, it growls and growls for more revs.
This car was built to be driven, and driven hard and fast. Steering is very direct, although the turning circle is poor. That and the suspension are my only faults with the car, the slightest bump in the road is heard and felt. Otherwise she is a performance car bargain.
However I would advise only enthusiasts buy one because you will spend some time under it, so if you don't mind getting your hands dirty, go for it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Loved the boxy/sharp look of the 155. These were great cars, and the Alfa Touring car from this era was also iconic. It's just a shame the road cars were a little under the average in regards to reliability. Still, anyone who buys one now is essentially buying a classic car and can expect a lot of work needed to put them right.
