147 Purchase might be on the cards

Hi all.

I'm considering purchasing a 2004 147 Lusso in Alfa Red.

Engine is the 1.9 Multijet (150) and comes with a leather interior. 73k on clock. Cambelt done recently and service history.

Alarm works.

The car is currently at a dealer and with a bit of negotiation I could get it down to 4600 with 1 years MOT and 3 months warranty. I've given it a spirited and varied test drive and apart from a slicing noise from the wheels (assuming brakes need attention) there was little wrong with the drive itself.

Warning lights on the dash were plenty - airbag, notice about a motor control failure or similar and water in diesel fuel filter.

Insurance isn't a concern as I'm starting to get grey hair

Bodywork is very good with no dents. Couple of scratches which are very minor and I'll be able to remove with my detailing gear (I'm an amateur detailer).

Is this a car I could entertain or should I give it a miss? Your thoughts on the matter would be muchly appreciated
