Potential new 147 q2 owner

Hi guys,

I have been looking at 147's for a while now. I have driven a lusso, turismo, Sport Q2 and a ducati corse Q2.

I like the look of the Collezione model for the appearance but obviously the ducati corse is the superior model with a higher spec.

I drove the Ducati Corse model today, this particular car was immaculate inside and out and the test drive went well! I am considering the offer they have given me and am due to give them a decision.

I just wanted to ask a couple of questions to see if anyone can help?

How often does the cambelt-water pump need changing?

One slight reservation I have is the appearance of the limited edition stripes down both sides of the car. I just wondered what ducati owners opinions of them are?

Thanks to anyone that read this and replies!

Can't say I really like the stripes, but then again they don't ruin the look completely. And they (rather surprisingly) don't ****** my wife off so they aint that bad.

Worse thing about mine is the red paint which I think is actually made from real tomatoes, its that soft.

But once you're sitting driving it who cares. Just did a month driving up from Brighton to the Orkneys and back...no problems and a delight on those empty Scottish roads

Highly recommended!
