Re: £3K to £5K to Spend on a GTV V6 - What can I expect?
Well, went to look at it, it's done 102000 miles.
However, to my suprise, it has had the cambelt done in 2005 at approx 75000 miles I think, also had the clutch done at around 85000 IIRC. The most recent service history is with a company called WAD Alfa Romeo, a local specialist to me, anyone know them? Couldnt see any evidence of work on the rear suspension though.
I was tempted to give them a call and check the history of the car out with them.
Its in OK condition, paintwork is OK, theres a few scratches (But lets not forget its 8 years old!) someone had screwed something into the dash (The centre leather bit near the central instruments, can this be replaced?!) The only worrying thing for me was a drivers door that seemed to be slightly out of allingment, and on the edge it had started to rust (as if it had been opened against a wall a few times if you understand what I'm saying)
Tempted, but I'm not going to buy the first car I look at.
Went to see another, X Reg 46000 miles, CAT D insurance write off, it was purely a recon mission, it seemed OK though, drivers door ligned up better than the first one I've seen, however something didnt loook quite right at the front (where it had been smashed) so.....
The search continues..........
