Returning here after a while away! I used to have a Spider 2.2 LE on the amazing lease deal Alfa were offering at the time (I think it was 3+23 at £300 inc VAT). Anyway, I had to get rid of it early due to deciding to change career and since then I have been paying of my masters debt. Unfortunately (and I am trying to remain concise) I had to purchase a cheap car through a loan a few years back as a run-around. I went for a Mercedes A-Class and have hated it, even more considering that the loan is worth more than the car. Anyway, I digress...
I am now looking at (and was pretty set on) the C220cdi Coupe auto on a great deal. It was 6+23 at £322in VAT a month. BUT I decided to have a look at the Giulietta yesterday - I know they are very different cars- and I was very pleasantly surprised. What a lovely car it is in the flesh and the interior was much better than I had anticipated after reading the reviews.
So I am now trying to see what deals Alfa can offer on a 1.4 170 TCT Veloce with some better wheels. For me the Mercedes is a much more mature car and has a lot of presence on the road and a great interior. But it doens't have that passion that the Alfa has.
My question is, would I regret not getting the Mercedes, considering they are likely to be pretty much the same price p/month, mainly due to the great offer on the Coupe at the moment?
My head has been completely turned as I was 99% set on that and hadn't even considered the Giulietta. To be honest, I didn't even like the look of it in the magazines, but boy is it a different car in the flesh!!!
