<strong>I knew you'd appreciate that Reuven.
What came across strongly was this guy's eagerness to talk up the car. He wouldn't let the truth get in the way of a good point on the car.
He stumbled so many times:
He said that the car had sports suspension. I asked him exactly what was different to my wife's car which was sitting next to it and looked exactly the same height. The guy said he didn't know exactly what was different...just that it was sports suspension.
He said that I should jump on this "bargain" as ATECO were not importing any more Black 147 3 door's with Red Leather. It was normal Black...not even Fire Black.
And here is the funniest part of all....
I commented on the tint of the Red leather. He said that it is a special tone exclusive to Pininfarina laughing It was the same as any other Red Leather seats I have seen before
oh yeah....and another doozy:
He said that the car was fitted with Special Alfa Factory mats worth $600.....I immediately opened the door to my wife's 147 and showed him the EXACT same mats and informed him that I paid $100 for them from my dealership
He asked me to let him know quickly whether I was interested, as there were other's interested in the car. Considering this is the 5th Week the car is advertised, I doubt that very much.
Also there was a HUGE dint on the rear quarter panel which he expects the new owner to fix. What a scam!</strong><hr /></blockquote><font size="1" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">Steff,
What Can I say Im totally speachless about the topic at the present moment have so much to say but need to put it into words!, will talk to you about it when you come to Sydney.
All that I can say for now is what a total con! & what a Scam! I think he tells everyone a diffrent story, He Told me that He Ordered the car directley from Ateco Italy! (As we all know there is not Ateco Italy) Ateco Are the importers for Alfa in NZ & OZ! only. Hahaha
Its just a very sad stroy indeed!
