Newbie on here, also an Alfa virgin, so i was hoping you guys/girls could help?
I am trying to find out if a GTV would be a remotely practical prospect for someone with kids. We are expecting our first baby in October, and we currently have a Saab 93 company car for the practical stuff, and are now using an old 3 door corsa snotter to run around in as the other car.
Now, having owned nice cars, its getting me down, having to drive this 1.0 3 cyclinder engined corsa, and i'm trying to convince the wife that we should get a GTV, as its the only thing in the price range (£2k ish) that appeals to me.
I test drove a 2.0 TS GTV a couple of years ago, and it made a big impression on me, but i decided to keep the car i had at the time. Now i'm seriously hankering after some Italian flair to brighten up my drive to work, but i'm not sure it would be a possibility.
My idea is that the wife will have the company car during the day, so fitting a pushchair in won't be a problem, it would be the odd occasion where i need the car for a meeting, and she would be left to use the GTV, which may be a problem.
So, are there people on here who have used a GTV as a "family" car?
Sorry for the ramble, but any help/reassurance would be very welcome
