Almost a 147 owner
Happy New Year fellas,
I'm looking at buying a 2002 147 1.6 (Plus). It's a private sale, decent price (2500), the guy seems fairly honest. Let my dad and I drive it alone etc. There's a few little problems, back bumper trim has a small hole, and theres a small (1 inch diameter) paint peel on passenger door, and one small dent. The back wiper is not working and the glove compartment handle has broken off. All very minor problems to be expected with an 8 year old car.
One thing which I'm worried about is the MOT is up in Feb. The car has all new bushings, linkage cables, new break discs and new Eibach lowered suspension springs. Apparently 2k put into it over 5 years. I'm not sure about the timing belt.
Just wondering what people think of this and is there anything I should look out for in this model. I've never owned an Alfa personally. Anything I should inspect tomorrow?
