Re: Buying a GT
I have just bought a GT after months of dilemma about what to buy. I wanted something that was quick with spot on handling. I tried a Brera but found it very lack lustre to drive and slow. Also I don't think the Brera is a great looking car - its ok but could be better, although it is head and shoulders above the competition (I realise I am probably the minority here though). So then I thought V6 GTV I have driven load of them and the handling really is amazing. But find a late good clean one proved impossible. Which led me to try a GT (after swearing I would never buy one) and I have to say the handling an the performance are amazing. To be honest the whole package is amazing, its a great looking car, its great on the inside, pretty practical for a sports coupe which is important as this is an everyday car for me. I have only had mine a week now but I absolutely love it. Yes i have experienced the window problems but they are liveable with. I opted for the 2.0JTS I would have love the 3.2 V6 but you cant buy those now :-( but the JTS sounds amazing when you open the throttle, it revs to about 7500RPM and never runs out of power right up to the rev limiter. You can really cane this car and it loves you for it.
personally I wouldn't buy the diesel for the sound and also the limited torque band. But again that's just me... I don't really care about MPG if I did i would buy something smaller and cheaper to run.
