<strong>I find it SAD that the people who buy a 147GTA will still suffer from:
Thin paint which scratches easily, especially on a black GTA and also ugly orange peel paint job.
More likely than not (due to the bigger engine, thus stress) more creaks, rattles and squeeks than ever before.
I am sure a few of them will end up at the scrap yard. Too much power for a front wheel drive. If I had one I think I'd total it on a roundabout!
It lacks the 156GTA's ability to flick out the rear and drift around corners if pushed too hard. Shame really.
For the price I'd buy me a 2nd hand Honda NSX
WHOOT! Now shoot me down wink
Hey Stephen, was cool to meet ya the other night.</strong><hr /></blockquote><font size="1" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">I've never had a problem with my Alfa paint. Scratches no worse than any other car I've owned. It's a DuPont product so should be as good as Mercedes, Audi for wear I would think.
I agree though...the price point for the 147GTA in NZ is around the NZD$70-$80K mark. I'm not sure the overall package really adds up to that price point. If I was gonna spend that I'd honestly have to have a bloody good look around first!
