A very happy man - at the moment
I will have to change my name on here as I have just bought a 2.5 V6 166 off a friend of mine. I asked him 4 years ago to give me first refusal and he did.
He has bought a new car from VW and asked if I wanted it for the price they offered for trade in - £800
Its a silver 1999 car with electric but non leather seats (strange choice), standard sound, no phone or GPS but who cares...if I get lost in this I can just spend more time in finding where I am going.
Its got full service history inc belts and tensioners 2 years ago and is on 85000 miles. Just a couple of niggles to put right but minor ones that I can sort out....I hope.
So....after buying my GTV off the worst garage on the plannet who got closed down after my complaints to trading standards...even though I got nothing back because nothing could be proved, I feel that I have had the Alfa pain and hope Ill get the Alfa gain...for a small time anyhow.
