3k to spend - what can i expect ?

HI - been offered 3000 for my car which gives me the same amount to start looking for a GTV with ( possibly a bit more)

So what can i realistically expect to get fo 3000 ?

Ideally id like a V6 but will that get me a good enough one or should i stick to 2 litre ones for that price ?

Thanks in advance,

At the moment with prices as they are you should get a pretty good V6 GTV for 3k, probably even a 6 speed series 2

There are a fair few for less than 2K especially on ebay. I wouldn't expect them to be minters though.

Re: 3k to spend - what can i expect ?

It depends on what you consider "good enough" and what you expect from the car - how long do you plan to keep it?

You're not going to get a great 3.0 V6 for £3000. If you want a decent GTV - with low mileage/ownership, full Alfa SH etc - then for your money you'd be looking at the 2.0 TS.

A low mileage/owner, fully maintained, excellent condition GTV V6 will cost you around £4500+.

There is a decent V6 on Autotrader.co.uk for £3K at the moment.

Get the V6, not that much difference in prices and you'll always wish you got one if you go for the TS.

get the V6...gave mine in for its first service under my stewardship today and got a 2.0 TS 156 as a courtesy car....its got a loverley thrashable motor,but i was already missing the V6 after 20miles...
do it...and get a series 2 at least...hold out and youll find there are actually plenty about, coz they are becoming harder to shift for sellers...so people like you and me are party to bargains galore
happy hunting
