Re: 147 2.0 ts lusso salespeed 2002 model
Having owned a 147 selespeed, it is NOT a cheap runaround. In fact a 147 in any guise is not cheap to own. As well as having higher insurance prices than your average 1.6 or 2.0 car, it is thirsty, consumes a vast amount of expensive semi synth oil, requires careful TLC and cannot be considered as a runaround, as it will not last.
The selespeed has the additional worry of the semi auto niggles which will happen, and it makes the selespeed an enthusiasts purchase.
Advise your friend to think carefully, if he is gonna look after the car, it will bring big bills but a joyful experience, but if he is looking for a cheap runaround, look elsewhere.
