Help Urgent advice needed...

Hi all,

Looks like I've stumbled across a very friendly site

This evening my Brother and I are going to look at a 2004 GT 1.9 JTD with 58000 miles and full service history. 9000
(What a superb looking car!)

Is there a buyers guide I should check over or maybe some kindly peeps here can help with some advice on what to look out for.

Apparently it hasn't had it's 60k mile service yet so it's a bit cheaper because of it but I want to knock the price down as much as possible.

Thank you so much in advance!

Re: Urgent advice needed...

Not that much I dont think. If the timing belts havent been done they will need doing soon, so bear that in mind.
Also, there was an issue with a creak from the roof/bootlid. If you go for a test drive make sure someone sits in the back and listens for it.

Apart from that can't think of too much else

A useful buyers guide for the GT can be found here.

Alfa Romeo GT Buyer's Guide

A lot of the details are common with other cars (including the 147) but its well worth reading and being prepared when you see the car.

Reliability with the later Alfas is much improved but servicing should not be neglected and carried out by a good Alfa specialist.
