Looking to buy a 147 - tips & advice needed!

Hi everyone, just registered on the site - it's looking great!

I'm not (yet) an Alfa owner but am looking at getting a 147 and have a few questions that I'm sure some of you can help me with!

I'm looking for a 147 diesel with 150 bhp. Probably something around the 2005/2006 age.

Not sure of all the differences between the Lusso and Turismo versions - and then on top of that some are "Multi-Jet". Can someone summarise? What's the best?!

Is there a way of distinguishing between the 150 bhp and say 120 bhp versions?

Is there anything I should look out for when buying - common faults etc. I think the 147 has a cambelt - when are they due for changing and how often?

Does anyone know good places to buy from in particular?

Thanks a lot and keep up the good work with the website!
