Hi there, 155's have a couple of things to watch for but nothing more than any other car. Wishbone bushes tend to go yearly if you intend on keeping the car then go for poly bushes, cam variator can make the engine sound like a diesel when started from cold not a performance difference when this happens just annoying to do this you need to take the cam shaft off as its bolted on the end of it. Do not attempt to do the cam belt without the special cam locking tool as you WILL bend the valves , its got something to do with the verniers having infinate adjustment or some crap like that. Great car will go on for ever if you treat it right oh and if you do the cambelt and variator do the tensioner as are known to fail for no reason. hope this all helps rather than put you off the ups far outway the downs.
