Hi guys. As I mentioned nearly a couple of weeks ago, I had my gorgeous 156 V6 with full Zender kit and GTA alloys, written off by a bad man in a van!
Anyway, soon the insurance will be paying out, and I need a new car. I NEED an Alfa, just can't change at this point in my life because I'm still a big kid.
I have a several 156 V6s, a 166 Super, several 147 - all Twin Sparks (mainly for the missus!), and now, I think it is time for a diesel.
I am eyeing up a few, but choice is now between a 156 JTD 20V, or a GT JTD. I love the look of the GT - its presence is just awesome especially from the front! The 156 is what I know, although I've not had a diesel as of yet.
The GT is squeezing my budget, but you can get quite high mileage ones for around the £3k mark, although they are all 1.9 engines. But how are the electrics on these?! My twin has a 147 JTD 16v and has done well over 110k miles, and has had many problems that I could never imagine on my 156 V6s as they seemed bullet proof! Or maybe I was just lucky! But I see the GT as a 147 with a sexier body!
But the 2.4 20V really takes my fancy power wise, and there are a few more out there and a little cheaper! Plus, I have many spares should I ever need them! Switches, motors....Anyway, I guess I am appealing to those who had tries both. So come guys, what do you reckon?!
