Re: Alfa Romeo 147 to the scrap heap?????
The exact same thing happened to my beloved 2002 2ltr Lusso 147 on Monday this week, timing belt snapped after only 20k miles :-(
However, as I added up I have spent nearly £3k on it in 2.5 years, I have made the heart breaking decision to scrap it rather than fork out another £1.5k. It was a really tough decision, and now I am thinking of sticking it on eBay as a whole for spares.
I had 4 new tyres on it last year and it has had numerous new parts recently (clutch, brake cylinder etc) and the leather seats are in good nick. The original owner had just about every single extra put on it.
Does anyone have any idea what it may be worth?? The independent Alfa garage said they may be able to find a home for it but they want to know what I want to get and I have no idea?! Is eBay the best option do you think?
Any advice would be appreciated.
A very sad ex-alfa owner :-(
