147 JTD Engines
I a few months time I am looking to take the plunge and buy my first Alfa. As you can tell by looking at my username i'm after a Ti model with the 150bhp JTD engine (around 06 reg) or possibly a Sport Q2 with the same engine if I could stretch to it. However whilst looking on autotrader there seem to be a lot of 120 bhp models that are alot newer (up to 08 reg) and being special editions they seem to have a decent spec as well (leather, cruise etc).
Having experienced the 140 bhp 16v version of this engine in a 156 and thinking that it was a great engine with decent punch and economy. Im just wanting to know what these engines are like in the 147. My preference in the 150bhp but I just cant ignore the age difference just for the sake of a different engine.
