Potential GT owner - a few questions


Hope you will kind enough to share some of your experience related to the Alfa GT.
I am planing to buy a 2006 1.8 petrol Alfa GT. I had a closer look at the car and discovered some problems with it. Oil is leaking from the sump and the gear box. What could be the problem and how expensive do you think will be to put right? Will post photos asap. What other major specific Alfa GT problems sould i look for?
I have to mention that i don't know the milage on the car, no keys (from what i know between 20-25k miles), but i know that the car has been abused in the past year.
The car has been reposesed by a leasing company and it is for sale at 2000 EUR. I can get a new set of keys front bumper changed and the car painted for about 2500 Eur. Do you think is worth 4500 EUR + engine/gearbox fix?
I have to mention that i love the looks of the car.

Thanks for the answers.

Hi, Welcome to AO!

Are you sure about the price? €2000 is to cheap to be true! Cuz If it so cheap I'll catch the next flight to Bucarest to buy one :P

(I've read your post 3 or 4 times to process all information, it's 2 am and my brain refuses to believe in a €2000 06 GT =D)

Sounds a bit dodgy to me. I would steer well clear. That is far too little for that age and mileage.

Not a GT

Re: Potential GT owner - a few questions

As well as cosmetics and keys, I'd be factoring in an engine change for that price as well (€2kish). Then we're probably getting somewhere close to the value of a non-recovered and repaired model.
