Very nice, well saved.
Word of caution, if your going to use the car as a daily, expect a few teething problems. The car has been sat awhile, so go through the brakes and tires. Things like rad hoses my be getting brittle, rusty elec conections, dirt in various systems, but persever and fit elec ign and you will end up with a very nice reliable car.

Alfa 156 seats are made by Mono and are more comfortable then Recarros IMO. I've just bought a set for my Firenza just need to make up subframes.

You can dye leather seats any colour you want. All car leather seats are dyed and the process of changing colour is well documented on the net. Many of the dye manufacturers can even match your existing colours. About £30 for the dye and sealer for 2 front seats. Mine are dark grey so need to be dyed black.
