B&W may be one of the more dedicated dealers, but dealers they still are.
Have a look at the GTV pages - the 3.2 they bought "never to sell" is now up for sale to fund a classic alfa................d'oh. I wonder how little the previous owner gave it to them for so that they would cherish & preserve it
I love my 166, I have owned it for nearly 6 years, but I have to be realistic & honest about the prices (not stupid tho' - everyone knows that £4400 woud be a steal for a 3 1/2 yr old 166).
I paid £13k for a 2yr old Super Lusso with just above average miles, original value £31k with the options fitted (and probably sold for £29k-ish).
The B&W one is £13k, originally sold for £22k max. (remember they knocked 30% off for anyone in AROC at the end of the 166).
And we are now in a recession.
And the car tax has been upped seriously.
Sorry about the thread - think of it like TV - turn off if you don't like the subject or it's portrayal
German metal - price leaders for depreciation normally, and if the guides quote £20k you will be able to buy it for that price - Alfa prices are low.
Glass' guide encourages dealers to take the ****, because their guarantee insurance won't cover them for alfa's otherwise - most of the trade still remembers the rust & unreliability, the last-generation main dealers just tried to milk the marque for every last penny (and totally screwed up the business) without actually caring about the heritage.
Let's face it, used car prices are very low, but in £ terms, this suits buyers not sellers
