I've been looking for a while the worst I saw was a terrible 147 Q2 in Oldham, had corrosion everywhere and was supposedly 39k, it was one owner and had serviced by Dews Alfa all its life, who I rang and spoke to before going to see the independent garage (I live in London). Despite asking the garage selling it (not Dews) lots of questions it turned out to be very tired on close inspection, signs of overspray in a wheel arch, different shades of red, sloppy gearbox (etc..), complete waste of a day and train ticket.
Just bought a very low mileage GT, which is a JTS but mint and tight with 22k miles, it's cloth but hopefully not too much goes wrong for the next few years. The saving over a diesel and leather should cover the fuel! The Alfatex interior is as good as fabric gets, although leather would be lovely.
Good ones do take a while to find.
