GOOD BUY ???? would you ?!

looking this : wants £2000 cash no offers - would you pay that ?!!! thanks in advance



66,000 miles.

MOT 15/10/2010 and all the previous certificates.

Full service history.

Full handbook pack.

Cambelt and Variator changed at 51,000 miles.

Metallic Light Blue with Grey interior.

Front tyres were new in July.

Full Lusso spec:

PAS, anti-lock brakes, all round airbags, remote central locking, front and rear electric windows, alloy wheels, dual climate control, trip computer, CD player, cruise control.

The car is in a very tidy condition as shown in the pictures and importantly for an Alfa everything works as it should, air con, electric windows, rear wiper etc.

Looks like great value to me.

How many years ago was the cambelt replaced? Remember it needs to be changed every 3 years, regardless of mileage

My son bought his 1.6 147 a few months ago with the same speck, full history and similar mileage, he paid £2000 with short tax and mot. It needed one tyre and will need a variator which we will change when it’s time for the cambelt change. So providing it has a long MOT and doesent sound like a diesel engine when you start it, I think it's the correct price.
