Re: GT - Dangerous fault....check yours out !!
My wifes 147 TS with 10,000 on the clock certainly doesn't. It is so quiet at tickover I have to check the rev counter to convince myself it hasn't stalled, which I certainly don't have to do with the GT, or indeed previously with the 156 JTS. It revs beautifully as well although obviously it is down on power compared to the JTS engine. Having said that, I knew when I first drove it when it was new, that it was the best 147 I had driven, and over the last five years I have driven a number of them when the 156s were in for servicing, ranging from a 200 mile GTD to a 18,000 mile 1.6.
