Hi there, first post into the forums
and I know this may sound like sacriledge but....
I currently use a 147 1.6 to tow my sprint/hillclimb car (caterham superlight) around the country, and it does the job ok. But it struggles up the hills as it is a little underpowered.
So i wandered into the local alfa showroom recently to look at 'upgrading' to a diesel alfa of some sort (147/156)...anyway the sales chap sees me salivating over a rather nice black with black leather GT JTD whilst i waited to be 'serverd', but I say
"oh I can't have a GT becuase i need to tow with the car..." i sniffed
"but" the sales chap beems "i just fitted a tow bar to one of those, it shouldn't be a problem"
"is it a removable 'hidden' type that I can take it off when not in use, so to not spoil the 'look'? and will it not need some modifications to the bumber?" I ask
" yes and unfortunatly yes" he says
"got any pictures?" I ask now with my credit card shouting loudly that he needs using then and there..
"no" he replies...
I kind of leave it at that as I had really only popped in for a look, and i could see me handing over a deposit then and there...
Anyway after a bit of research and talkign with indespension there is apparentlty a tow kit, basically a 156 kit that should fit with some bumper modifications/cuts. However I cannot find any pictures anywhere of a GT with a tow bar so I can see how much needs to be removed. (also it seems tobe double the price of the equivalant 156 version!)
So has anyone on here ever seen a Gt with a tow bar and are there any pictures anywhere?
again sorry for upsetting anyone with my sacriledge....
