GTV CUP 68

Time to sell the CUP

After 4 years of ownership i'm going to be putting the CUP up for sale in the next few weeks if anyone's interested. Not had any trouble and has never let me down, will be sad to see her go but its time to let someone else enjoy her.

Looking for about 9k

Just over 95000 miles but still in use so will rise a bit
Will be MOT,d next week and oil change
Two folders full of receipts

Good points
Recent full body respray in Alfa red with progress photos
Q2
GTA flywheel and clutch
Stainless cat back exhaust with lifetime guarantee
New cat and flexi
All speakers professionally upgraded to nertz with amp
Engine strut brace
3 keys plus the brown one and code card
HID headlights and fog lights
iPod ready alpine head unit
Alpine EZI DAB unit
Powerflexed rear end

Bad points
Wife wants a new kitchen
Suspension could with replacing (was on the list for this year)
Belts are due last done 2014(might get done)
The centre console has small amount of damage (was also on the list for this year plenty of 916's being broken)
Wheels need a refurb.


If I think of anything else I'll add it.

I have very few qualities, one being that I am NOT a professional smiler. I speak my mind and if people don't like it, too bad!



I'm genuinly sorry if I offended you when I called you stupid.
I honestly thought you already knew.

Car for a house, bugger. You know you can't drive a house
What will you be replacing it with or are you not replacing it at all?
Good luck with the sale

9k? I though only minters are worth that. What in the suspension needs replacing?

The belts probably aren't due (unless you meant on mileage). I took a 5 year old belt off my GT and it still looked new and the tensioners and idlers were still in perfect condition.

Unless I am completely out of touch with GTV values (am i?) for 9k you would want the suspension sorted, wheels refurbed and the center console repaired.

But regardless, Best of luck with the sale

Paul. What are you thinking of? Keep it. Finance the kitchen some other way.
