Re: Have I turned down the deal of the year ?
Test drove the BMW 120D M-Sport (57-plate) this morning followed by a GT 1.9 JTDM Lusso (07 plate) this afternoon.
I must say I was torn between the two of them, the BMW was a fantastic drive and the M-Sport model looks and feels far better than a standard 1 series. However the GT knocks spots off it in the looks department.
I think the interior of the BMW feels and looks more solid than the GT, however the price of the BMW at £22,500 was a bit steep.
So I've plumped for the the Alfa GT which at £16,999 was more reasonable. They also gave me top part ex value on my 156 after a bit of haggling plus they are fitting and iPod kit to the Bose system and some plush pukka GT mats (but I suppose everyone gets them). So no need to service and MOT the 156.
I pick the GT up on Tuesday.
Tony, what made you change your BMW for an Alfa then ?
