Can anyone offer a GT test drive
I wondered if anyone might be able to help me out. I'm going to be buying a GT fairly soon, probably a V6, but I'd like to see what the other 2 engines are like first, maybe I won't need the V6.
My Brother has a GTV 3L V6, he lives in London and reckons it's a bit frustrating as he doesn't get to 'use' it properly, he says if he floors it a little, he ends up in the next borough after gong thru the back of a few cars. He's hankering for a smaller engine just to get the go kart feel back. I'm not a mentaller driver so maybe won't get anywhere near using a V6 properly.
My 1.8 ts Sportwagon is pokey when i'm on my own, but with 2 adults and 2 kids, it flags so I don't want this in a GT.
I don't feel good about wasting seller's time, tyre kicking etc or getting pressured in a dealer as I'm not ready to buy just yet. It'd be great if anyone lives near Hitchin, Herts that might let me be a passenger for a few miles, I'll chip in fuel costs.
Would like a ride in 3.2, 2.0 and the diesel, ideally 2004-2006 models. I can drive to meet you.
Pls PM me if you can help out. In return I could take you out in my Lancia Fulvia HF, this will be good for you because it will make you realise what 'crashy suspension' actually is like, you'll get back in the Gt and think it's a Bentley!
p.s. I might hold out on buying until Spring Alfa Day at Duxford, so if anyone is going and can help me out- superb.
