Buying a 2nd hand 147 2.0 Lusso
Hi, I had a 156 s/w 2.4jtd until last Christmas, but sold it because, although under warranty, I was just spending too much time at the dealers, coupled with a paint problem on the roof, that I eventually got Alfa to pay for, although they denied all responsibility.
However, I can't stay away, and I'm now looking to buy a 3/4 yr old 2.0 3dr 147 with maybe 40k on the clock for about £6.5/7k. Apart from the timing belt issue, what are the major issues to look out for?
Secondly I live in South/Central London, which garage do you reccomend for work, given that I won't need a main dealer...Lombarda have been very helpful, but now they're a main dealer....?
Colnago, Vespa, Alfa Romeo, not neccesarily in that order, working to add Ducati, Ferrari, Maserati, De Rosa, Ciocc, again not necessarily in that order
