Re: 156 JTS or V6
I am going against the flow here and suggest the JTS.
Yes, the V6 sounds great, but it is heavier, and the handling of the V6is plop, unless it's a sportpack version, and even then it is only average.
The JTS is lighter, nimbler, better balanced, and you will have a bigger
selection to choose from, as well as a newer car with more toys. I am not even going to mention fuel economy as its a non-issue for you.
I think the V6 will only be faster on motorways, not on the back roads, so it also depends where your driving pleasure lies.
Of course, if you come across a well looked after and cleverly fettled V6 with good quality coilovers, uprated brakes and ARBs - for a great price...
