Hi, lurker but first time post.
Im about to give back my company car, a 58 plate Audi 2.0T A4 S Line. I have no need for a car of this size and have a new job which requires a commute from Bristol to Swindon. I love a 159 but because its only me in the car I fancy a 147. Ive had various German brands over the years but now want to spend my own money on an Alfa.
Ive obviously seen some horror stories about Alfas but for every bad story I see another car that has done over 100K with out issue so Im happy to take the plunge.
I dont care if its a petrol or diesel although Ill go for the 1.6 Petrol or 1.9 Diesel. Ive seen a few cars that I like the look of but not viewed yet. I want they facelift model and leather.

I love the 147 1.9 JTDm Q2
63000 miles at St George
Would I be open to more possible faults with the Q2 given the set up?
Would I be right to hope that all of these 147s on the pages above have had belts changed or should that be something I should arrange prior to purchase.
Im after some guidance to be honest on the 147 and suggestions on any dealers in the Bristol area. I have an "official" repair shop near me in a Fiat garage and a new Alfa and Arbarth dealer has opened half a mile away.
Any help and guidance on picking up a good 147 greatly received. Many thanks
