Re: Bought my Alfa 147 without viewing it!
I know, probably wouldn't do it again. But I really wanted a Black, 3 door 2.0, and there were hardly any being advertised. One trader was just mucking me about so much, and another black 147 was sold within 24 hrs of going on sale. Also I had sold my car 6 weeks earlier, so was actually driving round in a little 1.2 Clio (borrowed off my ex girlfriend) that I was getting fed up with.
As they were Alfa specialist and were giving it a service, replacing Cam Belt, Tensioner, Variator and Water Pump. I thought 'what the hell' it can't be too bad.
When I picked it up the guy said that someone had been to look the morning I inquired, and then phoned him 30 mins after I had put the deposit down to buy it.
Touch wood that it stays a gooden!
