I'm planning to buy a 33 .
In the past i've had two series 3 : 1.3 double Twin Dellortos, and one 1.7 16V S .
The most fun to drive was in fact the 1.3, despite the 16v just went going, & going, & going, it only stoped at 230km/h because of the engine cut .
The 1.3 felt more alive...
It has to be an series 3 .
Here in Portugal i still can find and 1.5 ( carb ) and the 16V .
What i would really like to get was the series 3 1.7 Double Twin Carb, but i dont even know if the series 3 had a 1.7 carbed version ( think not ) .
I've never driven an 1.5 carb, will it be much faster than the 1.3 ?
Comparing the 1.5 carb with the 1.7 16v, will it have a great difference ?
Can you tell me the real figures, acel & top speed, from a 1.5 carbed version, not the factory ones, i'm really looking for the real, user tested, values .
My 1.3, ALFA said, top speed was supposed to be 176km/h but i measured once, straight no back wind, 194km/h, with a Magellan GPS .
Please let me know what you think !
