Re: Alfa GTV on Ebay, whats your Opinion?
Here is a quote from another Thread with a view.
If you do a search you'll find lots on this topic, it comes up fairly often.
I reckon that you'll be about 10mpg down on the TS, something like 20 mpg seems to be the accepted norm for a V6. The insurance costs will be higher and I suspect that maintenance costs MAY be higher.
I love my TS, it's great, but next time it'll be a V6, you only live once !
Hope you come to a decision that works out for you.

The engine torque the V6 produce compared to TS is a lot of fun when you have
sorted the supension (OE is to soft in front and have to fast rebound in the back)
as the v6 understeers more whid OE supension then the TS (it's heavier in the front),
and the sound.
