Hello lovely GTV people,
Well I managed to con my other half into agreeing that we need 3 alfas
So I'm picking up a '98 twinny GTV with 80K miles on Friday.
I have a couple of questions. I did have a bit of a look at the guides, but I'd appreciate some help...
1) The passenger window doesn't go under the seal when you shut the door, you need to lower and raise the window after you shut the door, or apply a bit of pressure to the window when you shut it from outside... Is this an easy fix or a complete PITA?
2) It has a huge amount of history. Front suspension has had replacement wishbones, multiple cam belts etc. Last belt a year ago and the engine sounds nice and goes well, and revs freely. Had a new variator about 5 years ago - I assume this was the improved part? Has just had an ABS sensor replaced and clockspring has been done. The airbag and ABS lights come on with ignition on and go out in a few seconds. Anything else I should be looking at?
3) Very slight rattle from the rear. Maybe bushes? Handling seems spot on. Anything I should check when I go to pick it up?
4) It has immaculate looking pepperpots, but I'd prefer teledials. Which wheels are compatible? Is it the same lug pattern and offset as the 156/147? I did PM spud452 about the tele's he has advertised on the classifieds here but I haven't heard back from him. If I do change them, is anyone interested in the pepperpots?
