So I Leave for my UK road-trip tomorrow and have lined up a couple of bargain-bin Alfas' to buy, run and sell for a profit (hopefully) before I leave!
I'm looking at a gen1 147 series of cars, and quite frankly, as an Australian cannot get over HOW CHEAP these cars are.
This one is by far my favorite, it's an 04 147 Lusso, with the correct 1.6 engine (any bigger and insurance is a killer D
It is a trade-seller, which would bother me normally, but I've had a chat with the guy on the phone and he seems a genuine bloke. The previous owner of the car has obviously gone to some length to keep it in good condition, it has been regularly serviced, has had an aftermarket stereo fitted (big plus for me, personally) and someone has gone to the trouble of fitting the wheels from a Ti-spec 2006 Alfa 156, identicle to the ones I have on my '06 Ti
Its in the most desirable Alfa red, has leather, climate control and cruise control... What more could you want from this era car!?
So what do we think, for 1500quid is it too good to be true, or the bargain of the century?

The only thing I am conscious of is the time in which the car last had its major cambelt changeover. This scalded my when I bought my 156 with a $1500 bill, so I will be cautious to check up on that. But otherwise, what do we think!?
I'd just like to add, seen as we're discussing the technical aspects of this vehicle, it does fit into this section of the forum
