I'm selling my girlfriend's cherished Alfa GT Blackline.. changes in life mean the GT is no longer practical and we need to get a 4 x 4 having spent a small fortune sorting it out over the last 8 month
The car was previously owned by the son of a mechanic at Monza Sports Tuning so had plenty of remedial and performance work done as is evidenced by the stack of receipts. The car was then traded in and owned for 12 months or so by a dealer, who didn't do much to it, so as soon as we bought it, we got everything sorted with a view to keeping for the long term. New cambelt kit, new clutch, new tyres, full service etc. I even disassembled the clutch after we had the new one fitted to grease the bearings to get rid of the dreaded heavy, sticky clutch that plagues diesel alfas.. resulting in a light and smooth clutch. Oh, new badges (after pic was taken). Receipts are present for all work listed below.
The car has a great bluetooth touch screen sat nav unit with aux input and Monza Tuning remap. 99,438 miles as of 26/12/14 (will rise as is the daily driver). Please ask for any more info or if you'd like to view. Best to email on ollehg(at)gmail.com or PM me. I'll add up to date pics tomorrow.

Downsides (all cars have them) - bodywork is not in perfect condition, although very good.. nothing major. Rear parking sensors are intermittent. Nearside top wishbone is beginning to squeak and chirrup over uneven ground. Alloys need a refurb (she can't park).
Upsides - A no expense spared approach to maintenance with touchscreen sat nav unit. Very recent clutch and cambelt kit means the car should be good for a long time before any major expense is required.
Price is £5,750 ovno. Appreciate your comments
