I've relented and will try again
after my spider 'experience' I vowed never to have another Alfa .
However,a year on and blood pressure back to normal I'm beginning to look longingly at the the Alfa GT as a practical and dog friendly car that makes all the other hatchbacks look as stale as yesterdays paper ( the new Audi TT is an exception to that statement but still quite pricey).
This time I will go into it with an open mind and a determination to keep smiling but there are a couple of questions that the GT gurus on the forum could help me out on
- what is the prudent ( as opposed to Alfa recommended) mileage for a cambelt change
on the diesel engine and how much does it cost ?
- is the GT suspension the same as the Spider suspension with all those ridiculous rubber bushes that need replacing after a few years ?
I will be looking for a diesel GT with 40-60K on the clock so cambelt change could be an issue when considering price.
