Update - I've bought it, this is what it's like...
Ok, following the helpful replies here my offer of £450 was accepted.
It's an almost mint '99 v6, 86000 miles, 9 months mot and 2 months tax.
It's a one owner from new, and has full Alfa main dealer history, the last service being 3 months ago, the oil is still golden. A huge history file came with it, with mountains of bills including one for £700 for cambelt/water pump/tensioner/etc at 61000 miles.
It drives very well, with no knocks or squeezes anywhere and feels very tight and solid. A slight rumble from the rear indicating a wheel bearing is the only thing of note. The engine is revs eagerly and sounds almost erotic! Am I aloud to say that? It pulls lustily with tons of power! Oh yeah baby! Sorry I must calm down...temperature stayed at about 70c ish.
Havnt tried the electrics yet! All the dash light including the heater panel work fine.
The injector light is on
The starter wheezes
Only I key
Are the doors supposed to lock remotely? If so I havnt got one of them either, but they lock fine with the key.
Any thought or tips very welcome!
