Right, I have a GT 1.9 JTDm (yes....that is right Squadrone Rosso, a diesel lump in a GT
I currently average 700 - 750 miles per week. From Febreuary onwards, the journey will be cut to 150 miles per week - it will remain such for at least 4 years or so.
As such, I have the opportunity to buy something either a little bit crazy or something I have always wanted.
Currently, I am wondering if there is any point sticking with a diesel? The majority of the drive will be on dual carriageways and A roads and I think the mpg on the GT will drop significantly.
Currently, I have been looking at the Brera, the Spider and (I know it is blasphemous but I will say it anyway) some other brands not covered on the site.
I haven't owned a petrol in years and I am wondering what to look out for on the V6 variants of each of the above. Equally, how would the dieseil fair on the basis that I would only be doing 150 miles/week (pretty worried about the DPFs). What can i expect from the 3V6 in terms of problems, running costs (not really interested in fuel costs or tyres etc but, rather the more 'usual' V6 engine problems?
All help greatly received - and please go into details, I love this stuff.
