Hi, I had a 147 diesel and then bought a GTA for the V6 etc. Loved the GTA but kind of hated the fuel bill after a year, like you it was just at my financial limit. I am back in a 147 diesel and miss the GTA but I drive the diesel as I like where the GTA was nursed down motorways to save fuel, not the way it should have been used.
And a thanks to everyone whom posted on this thread You were all correct, it had to be the V6. I think if I'd have gone for the twinny I'd always have a nagging feeling in the back of my mind and slight regret of not having the V6
