Re: 156 2.4 JTD viewing today...opinions please asap.
Looks ok! Although I can`t comment on the correct price, you could use the fact that it has needed all of those things replacing means that its an expensive car to run - 'if it had been a honda it wouldn`t have needed any of those things', and 'it can`t have been looked after, must have been thrashed'. Also say things like 'I hear the turbo bearings go at about 60K', and '130bhp? Thats a pretty low output when I can get 150 bhp on a later engine'.
Don`t panic! All this is just to help you bargain with the seller, not anything for you to worry about! Don`t let him sniff your need for a lovely alfa. Pretend to be mondeo man just wanting an a-b motor. Start at 3,950 and prepare to haggle. Good luck!
