thanks, i'm going in 5 mins so i've left it a bit late to seek advice i suppose. It's got 51K on the clock, so that 60K service will come round fairly soon. How steep is steep? My coupe's near it's 72K cambelt service & from a fiat dealer it will be over £1K but from a fiat specialist just down the road will be £520 ish.
didn't have the sports pack, there were quite a lot of scratches on it. Particularly by the driver door handle and boot keyholes. Guess the previous owner had a shaky hand or something. The one thing i did love was the leather
Anyway, followed that up by looking at a 156 1.8 TS which was actually a lot better loking than the V6, a year younger, lower mileage and £2k cheaper. But performance is a must so it never really came into consideration.
Finally i went on to see a 2.0 selespeed with sports pack, in black with white Alfa multi spoke alloys and a lovely rear spoiler. This was the pick of the bunch for me, but had a scuff on the side of the rear bumper and a couple of other small things that just made me hesitate. Also i don't know what a slepeed is like to drive, so I'll have to give it a go and check the performance.
