Re: My new (to me) 147
As its a company car my colleague went for the Golf GT TDI or whatever the equivalent is on the new model.
Its thoroughly nice but the Alfa is (in my opinion) more stylish and exciting.
The oil problem seems to have settled down now. I haven't had to top it up for around a month now which is much better than when I first got it. I do keep the Castrol is case of emergencies though!!
My Fiesta was one of the new shape ones. It was an 03 reg 1.4i 16v and I got it new. Once again, thoroughly nice car, but there's just something about the alfa...
Before my colleague bought the 147 the dealer (alfa specialist) was kind enough to do the annual service, replace the belts and the two front tyres. My milage is just under 12,000 a year so I hope annual servicing will suffice from now on.
Thanks to everyone who replied and hopefully I can be of some use when other people are asking the questions!
