Alfa Romeo 156 Roffle UPDATE **EXCLUSIVE NEW OFFER!**

Recommended Posts

Would there be any interest in an Alfa Romeo 156 roffle? It’s had the same owner since nearly new and was taken to ROI and never went back to its UK plates. We still have the ROI registration certificate but not sure exactly what would be required to register the car back in the UK now. At the time it went off the road all it needed was a new MOT but that may not be the case anymore. It’s a fairly basic petrol model from 1998 with nice alloys in a nice dark green colour. Unsure of the mileage as the batteries dead as a dodo and collection would have to be from Inverness way up in the Highlands

Presume this is a 1.6 Twin Spark in Veloce flavour, yes ?

 

Do have a hankering for a 156 at some point but I'm a bit of a snob and actually prefer the facelift look. And red, of course.

 

Sounds complicated this one with the ROI thingamabob.

 

Never mind all that, when's the roffle ?

Its a 2.0 T Spark, lovely Teledial alloys worth a fair amount of ££ on their own. Has the Alfa dealer tufted carpet mats, plus the 2 original keys. Its a manual gearbox and has been fitted with an upgraded Kenwood stereo. Also has a tow-bar with electrics. Boot area very clean, has been kept protected, and underneath the spare wheel and tools look unused. Photo's coming in 3,2,1...

Have some gumtree style mobile phone pictures. A little tricky to take photos due to how it’s parked, and I’m not risking starting a car, let alone an Alfa, which hasn’t run in 3/4 years. The battery is now dead as a dodo, but when it was layed up the engine was fine, but ideally it needs the spark plugs out, cambelt replaced etc before starting her up.

yes, go back to the first post and select Edit, then go to Use Full Editor and it'll allow you to change title, tag, anything you want.

 

Also put me down for 4 and 16 please.  Now I've officially put the Cadillac up for sale I think my Roffle ban is over, and I've always wanted one of these.

Re-registering in the UK, I think would be one of 2 ways depending on iof it was exported properly or not.

 

If it was officially exported then it would need to be re-imported, NOVA, MOT etc like DW is doing with the Dacia.

If it was not oficially exported, just registered in Ireland, it should still exist on the DVLA system, just apply for a replacement log book.

 

I don't suppose you know the old UK reg number?

I can try and find out, but that’s the thing, unfortunately we don’t know the old UK reg number

Of course it was exported properly. It has Irish plates on it!

 

The Irish VRC will have the previous registration number on it usually, so if ex-UK, will have the UK registration.

 

Anything exported from UK doesn't get the record wiped, just marked exported. If it shows up again at a later date and the former registration mark is known, then you can get them to put it back on.

I have bought a former UK car in Ireland, with Irish reg and got away with just applying for a new UK log book when I brought it back.

Not everyone notifies the DVLA that a car has been exported, some just say sold, and are not marked as exported.

      1998 Mercedes C200 Elegance
      126k miles, MOT August.
      I picked this up from AndyW201 about a fortnight ago as a daily to replace the Cavalier whilst I take it off the road, I've done about 1000 miles in it, drives absolutely spot on and Andy has definitely undersold it in his description.
      However, due to buying the A8 from sims and another potential purchase I'm in negotiations with on here, I really need to free up some space - my storage is absolutely maxed with stuff and I now have 4 cars at home annoying the neighbours, I need to make some movement.
      Scrubs up fairly well, it has had some odd touch ups around the body but nothing that overly stands out, decent tyres all round, all electric work, has cruise control so is ideal on A roads/Motorways etc.
      £350 or will roffle at £6 a ticket. Delivery possible.

      I don't like it. I want a small car. Suzuki Wagon or similar. 
      £350 or roffle at 6 quid each.
      Good:
      159,000 miles. Just under a year's MOT
      Leather Interior (Actually that's a 'bad' to some people)
      Bad:
      Complicated starting method - 2 keys and an immobilizer
      Likes a drink - TADTS (Plus it is Scottish)
      Smells oily sometimes - TADTS
      Tappy noise occasionally. Have been told Vanos - but hasn't affected anything. Might actually just be a loose engine cover.
      Gearbox hangs in a low gear for first 30 seconds or so of driving after cold start. Fine after that. 
      Bodywork has scratches and rust (rear arches)
       
      I don't actually have many pictures...

      NOW EDITED:
      Proper funny-face Multipla
      My wife's car for last 8 years
      ELX spec, so has the twin sunroofs
      8v turbo diesel that plods on and on.  And on and on.  Did the 20 mile commute today, outside lane of M1 for a lot of it.
      Dependable to go anywhere. More reliable that was ever in the blueprint !
      Clutch 2016
      Cambelt 2017
      180k and everything still works including the folding mirrors, air con, both sunroofs, all windows, etc
      Some war wounds well what do you expect, some interior sticky plastics but nothing broken


      Some noisy front clonking to deal with -  was told it's the inner ARB bushings despite MOT man being happy.  Just been turning up the stereo
       
      UPDATE
      Now has a Cat-C marker because of this.  Grrr.  The upshot is the insurer valued it at £1k.  Stitched together with cable ties for now.   

      MOT all the way to October
      Thinking roffling at Tenner a ticket - it really is that reliable and I don't want it gone but wife is in ear about it.  Taxed and insured until end of the month, see
      We moved white goods with it last week and a whole fixed panels front end from a classic Mini (Riley Elf ectually) the week before.  So VAN status is achievable as the seats just lift out

      Things are a changing folks, the Rover of Smoothness has to go and I think a Rover Roffle is the way for this to happen.
      You can see piccies of the car elsewhere on the forum but will try and post some as soon as I can over the weekend.
      This is really a lovely car that has had some serious money spent on her over the last few years.
      I have had a new rear section of exhaust fitted, a new brake caliper fitted to the N/S rear and it has had the CVT fluid drained and changed by the Rover specialist in St. Albans just a few months ago.  I had a new battery fitted when I bought her as well. She is a lovely smooth driving car, utterly comfortable too and she motors along beautifully. Quibbles? The heated seats don't work but seeing as the seats are velour fabric, that really isn't an issue.  A few giffer scuffs on the bumpers are present and there is a slight ding in the drivers front wing but I have a good wing that will come with the car.  The boot lid will sometimes come down unannounced but I was going to add a spring to the mechanism and see if it helped.  That's it really.  Mileage is around 58,000 or so. MOT till November I think. The old reg will come with the car and the current reg will be retained by me.  No OMG HGF/coolant loss/overheating issues whatsoever.
      She is insured under a classic insurance banner by PBIS. This is a lovely, lovely car.
      Roffle interest at £8 per number? Taxed to get you home. 
       
      If anyone wants to cross my palm with pound notes then £425 will see the car bought for cash tonite mate, no X boxes, sorry.
