Alfa or Beemer Weezel ?
Iam soon to start a new job that involves a daily commute of aprox 80 miles in total, so thats about 18K a year plus weekend use.
So looking for a reliable, repeat RELIABLE car that I car trust.
I know I could trust a boring BM, as I've owned a 330d which was a good car, even though it had 130K on it. Do you reckon a 1.9 or a 2.4 JTD or JTDm would cope ? Sounds harsh, but not many people reckon they would risk it if you needed to rely on it for work over that distance.
I have owned a 1.6TS 147 Lusso before, which had niggly problems:- Airbag light, Flashing ODO, rear foglamp alerts, leaks in the footwell, but nothing that stopped it actually running.
So what issues have you all had as you can pay the same for a 3 year old 525d as a GT or a 159.
