147 or 156, or even a gt....
right now, i am currently playing a waiting game for redundancy at work, no big deal i really dont like the job and it'll give me the oppurtunity to make a clean break from the expensive south where i live now, and move up to the grim, but cheap north where my girlfriend lives.
But here's the catch. i have a son with my ex wife here and still want to see him at least every other weekend, meaning a 500mile minimum round trip, (1000 if i take him back up north for the weekend), the 147 2litre petrol i currently have is going to kill my wallet (it does now on weekend visits to see her) so i'm thinking of swapping for a diesel which is good on motorways, but still fun to chuck round the twisty's the rest of the time..
without starting a flame war over which is best... which would be best?
i like all the 3 models, (gt / 147 more so internally) but am not sure if the 2 i dont have will drive better or worse... are the gains of swapping for a diesel are that beneficial...
looking at a max price of £3500 + whatever i get for my 147 if i do trade. and i like to cruise ~85mph when motorway driving...
p.s. not looking for links right now, as i need to sort/get the redundancy money first, and then i'll look in the classifieds section before auto trader/ebay....
alfa ownership = dentist visit.
expensive, sometimes painful, but at the end of the you've got a perfect grin on yer face.
