My car is a dark green, 4 door, 1.9 JTD 147
. Should I trade it for a light baby blue 156 wagon
I am in a dilemma here, because I like the way both of them look, however I am a Gemini and if you believe in that sort of thing, I get bored of things rather quickly and want change.
I would keep my car because:
- It is a 1.9 110 HP, so it has enough power to go around and it's not that bad on the mileage, even tho it is a bit on the upper side.
- 17" SuperSport wheels
- Beige interior
- Cupholders, duuuh.
- Love the color
I want the wagon because:
- Love the color, as well.
- 2.4 so it sounds a bit better BUT higher cost to tax, and higher consumption
- Looks cool because I've never seen this color on a 156, only on a facelift 147.
TL;DR: I don't know if I should change - my car is cheaper to run and insure/tax, and the other one has more power and growl. I like the way both of them look, and I am not sure what to do.
Also, the 156 has 235k on the clock (that's kilometers), while mine has *only* 180k. When are the big services supposed to happen on both of them? Also, the 156 is a year newer (2003).
Also, I have heard horror stories of the 2.4 JTD being unreliable, but that was for the 136 HP, this one is 150 HP. But then again, to be fair, I always hear horror stories about Alfas. Also, mine is registered for a whole year (got my papers and plates today) and this one only until January.
