Selling my wifes perfect 147 1.6TS 63k £2395
Just as the thread suggests - my wife's gorgeous 147 is for sale, (on this websites classifieds now, and to appear on Pistonheads too shortly).
Car wants for nothing and is an absolute peach!
Here comes the sales pitch:
Alfa Romeo 147 1.6 2001
My wife is selling her beloved Alfa 147. This car is her pride and joy and this really shows, as the car is in excellent condition.
Taxed until December 2010 (so 6 months)
Mot until June 2011 (so nearly a whole year)
This is a very high spec car. It has:
Full and unmarked leather grey interior
Dual Climate Control (and cold can be set to very cold indeed!)
Switchable Traction Control
ABS and Brake Stability System
Full Function Computer
Electric Mirrors and Windows
Remote Central locking and alarm/immobiliser
Remote boot release
“Elegance” alloy wheels (unkerbed and all wearing matching high quality Goodyears)
Alfa Blue Gabbi colour
Service History – every MOT the car has ever had, and every bill too, along with the Alfa pack including the original handbook and guides. The car also has both original keys (remote fobs) in A1 condition and fully functional.
If you have been looking for a proper 147, but have just seen a load of tired rattlely messes in the freeads, then this car will be a breath of fresh air. The interior is immaculate (and shames current Ford/VW/Vauxhalls), and the outside is very clean indeed. All panels are original, and there are no repairs or accident history. You will not find the common 147 faults with this car – it has been maintained by an Alfisti husband to very nerdy levels. The suspension is knock/creak free, the gear change is slick and a pleasure to use, and the car is in an excellent state of service with no belts or similar coming the future owners way (all so crucial when buying one of these).
The engine has no variator noise of any kind (plus new one fitted with timing belt), and does not use any fluid (oil or coolant) and runs perfectly – this is one twinspark that does not drink oil like some do! All the belts were done at 54k miles last summer at Alfa Romeo specialist and set up correctly with bills to prove – no tippex bodge marks involved!
This car has electric everything, everything works 100% without fault, it drives flawlessly, with a years MOT and 6 months tax. Yes – there are other 147s that are for sale cheaper, with lots of “it just needs” that the owner will mention , but this one is all good to go and put a huge smile on your face like an Alfa should!
We are not looking for a part exchange/swap, or to sell overseas, or very silly offers as there is no rush or pressure to sell the car. You are welcome to come and view this car and see how good it is first hand, or just to talk Alfa of any kind!
