Ouch! I've seen the original thread, and you boys are harsh.
I bought her and paid top dollar - £4695, because I wanted a Silver GTV V6 with red leather and low miles. Having lived with her since October, her blingness is starting to grow on me, but don't despair as funds are available, the de-chavving process will continue, because it is what I want. It would be OK if she was a little different.
The plan is to bin the bonnet (anyone know of a replacement?) and the top spoiler if it does not need major surgery post removal. Unfortunately removing the dummy petrol cap has left a shadow on the paint (****), so I need to get that quarter repainted, and as the paint is in the gun.........
Done a load of little jobs as clearly one of the previous owner was a bodger. She passed her MOT with only a CV boot as an advisory, as previously picked up at an Autolusso Saturday morning health check. That'll have to wait until I can afford a Q2 and then it will be done at the same time. I have a fair bit of documentation that leads me to believe the mileage (now 24K) is genuine and looking underneath her seems to bear that out.
Some of you said have seen her before, any more info?
Anyway she'll be a rolling work in progress for sometime due to lack of funds, but someday she'll be stunning again at which point I'll probably have to sell her.
It's not always about the destination, but also about the journey, and I have already made some new friends who have a taste for the Italian way.
Will post some pictures soon and maybe see you on Sunday at Allams!!
