Thinking of Selling my 164 2.0 Lusso

Post by dennyhalo » Wed Jun 25, 2014 6:20 pm

I have a January 1994 164 2.0 Lusso which I’ve owned since November 2010. It is my second example, the previous one I had for 12 years.
Having only covered 31 miles (yes really) between the current MoT and the last one I think I should sell it.
Would anyone be interested in buying it, and how much could I expect for it?

Alfa Romeo 164 2.0 Lusso.
Registered January 1994.
Mileage 72900. I have covered about 600 miles since owning it.
MoT until 10/05/2015.
Colour Red.
Transmission Manual.
Previous Owners 4, all of the same family.
I have owned this car since 11/2010.

Good Points –
Bodywork and paintwork in very nice condition for age.
Interior in good condition. No tears or significant signs of wear.
Electrics work apart from those listed below.
Engine, transmission and clutch all good.
Pepperpot alloy wheels (including spare) professionally repainted 3 years ago.
Pirelli 195/65 VR15 P6 tyres (including spare) fitted 3 years ago. They have now covered about 500 miles.
New starter motor 11/2010.
Front pads replaced 11/2010.
Offside front wheel bearing replaced 11/2010.
Rear subframe rustproofed 07/2011.
Nearside rear suspension arm replaced 07/2011.
Front suspension arms replaced 05/2012.
Rear discs, pads and handbrake cable replaced 05/2012.
Receipts for all the work above.

Bad Points -
Small area of blooming on roof.
Paintwork on bonnet, roof and bootlid is starting to turn pink.
Near side indicators occasionally don’t work.
Corners of the bumpers are slightly scuffed.
Never tried the sunroof. Previous owner said it could be tricky to close.
Oil pressure gauge on dashboard doesn’t work.
Handbrake just passed MoT with 18% effectiveness (advisory on current MoT).
Radio/Cassette player doesn’t work as I haven’t got the code for it and took the battery out to charge it.

I really love this car but I don’t use it enough to justify being its lucky owner anymore. Someone who will make regular use of it and appreciate it should have the opportunity to do so.

I live in Battersea South London.

Hi 164EVER. Thank you for your post.
Having spoken to a few other owners I’ve now seen sense, or lack of, and decided to keep it.
I know I’d regret selling it.
