I tried to sell one of mine previously, became so disheartened, so many time wasters. People can be very strange!

Lovely example, this one. My friend used to service it for the previous owner, who kept it mint... Was tempted myself when it was up for sale earlier this year.

Have you still got them both, Mark?

And what do you guys think about a 146 with these Mito wheels?

(I've never been keen on the Phase 2 teledials)

Thank you and nice to be back! Getting there fingers crossed! Don't get old...

Yes, still have the two of them. I gave up selling the car in the end. Had scammers, time wasters and one guy who said could I hold it for him and then he never contacted me again. All very strange. Their loss TBH.

Next year though one really will have to go as I have my son's Fiesta as he is in Australia. He does not want to sell it (its a great car for a new driver) and even I cant manage 3 cars!!!

Cheers
Mark..

Luck of the draw, I guess?

(I also have saved searches on eBay for various Alfa models...)

So I went to see the silver 146ti on Friday... it was pretty decent, on 120k with black leather and not that rusty at all.

Needed back box and a cambelt for starters but otherwise looked pretty decent. I decided not to make an offer but to wait to see how the auction went on Sunday night... as it happened, the seller accepted an offer yesterday pm.

was the offer from you??!

I'm amazed to see these still turning up; they're are still some 'out there', eh?


Those Mito wheels are okay, but I'm really coming round to the look of those tele-dials on Mark's TI...

what size would those be; and what tyres would they have on them..?

No, the offer wasn't from me - starting price in the auction was £500 and it needed £500 spending on it straight away with who knows what to come.

If it hadn't had leather I probably wouldn't have bothered, tbh.

(I'm still thinking back to that 146 1.8 I had (briefly) in Nero Fuocco before my 145 QV came along...)

I agree the teledials look the best, they are classic Alfa!

They are 15 inch - one of mine has Toyo Proxes; the other has Pirellis. i've laways had Pirellis in the past but the Toyos are v good too..

Cheers
Mark..

Yes, fire black (cool name)!

15” teledials - I think that’s what bothers me about them - they’re too small, to my eyes.

The same style wheels fitted to the 156 were 16” and on the GTV 17” (which are awesome - as per the below pic).

I think the teardrop wheels you have suit the 146 best, and the Phase 1 Cloverleaf wheels suit the 145 best!

Trust me the wheel size is fine! Does not need anything bigger for the size of the car. Decent tyres are more important..!!

yeah- you know I can see both sides of this.

Lower profile tyres are often a great look (on larger rims) but one of things I love about the 146.gif shape is that the wheels are a 'detail', rather than the 'context', of the overall shape.
The 'definition' of the 146.gif if you like, is the rear three-quarter panel, after the rear doors- it reveals the high fold-line going to the boot, accentuating the rear-doors and luggage capacity of the car. These accentuated features are the POINT of the 146.gif against something like the 145.gif .
The overall outline is an elegant stylised sleek look (inherently through 5-doors), not a sportier one, and I've always admired the fact that 15" wheels look quite good (to my eyes) on the car.

Plus the ride is better and tyres cheaper!


On a more sporty-coupe like shape; larger sizes look better, as they draw attention to the rolling-functionality of the vehicle. Looking fast, whilst sitting still, so to speak...
