GT Survives Trade-In Threat !!

I've had my GT for two years now and was starting to get a bit bored. The rattles around town were starting to get on my nerves and after 3 V6's I hankered after another.

I went to trade it in and test drove the 3.2GT and a Brera 2.4jtd.
The 3.2 sounded great but had all the same rattles felt heavy and not quite as balanced nor any quicker than my re-mapped oil burner.

The Brera felt very good and a marked improvement on my Alfasud quality GT. Didn't feel any quicker but handled a lot better.

The 3.2 didn't make it past the test and that shocked me - well that and the threat of £400 road tax next year. I've always loved the engine but it ain't no GTA.

The Brera would have done the job (with a re-map) but I couldn't justify spending another £8k so the GT stays.

I'm now off to the tuning lounge because it needs several improvements - so if you've upgrade yours let me know.

A few fresh mods could re kindle the lost love in a car, it always happens to me.

Look about at suble mods maybe like a new exhaust or brake/suspension upgrade
