Thinking of buying a GTV
Hey, I am thinking of purchasing a GTV to use as a second car / something fun for the summer.
I have some Alfa experience having owned a 2000 Alfa 145 Cloverleaf and more recently a 1.8TS GT Blackline.
The GTV I have seen is a 2003/53, 2.0 JTS Lusso with 65,000 miles. The belts were changed at 55,000 miles but I don't know if this was the first or second belt change.
The car looks OK cosmetically, but I have concerns about the suspension (bushes). The buyer has advertised the car 3x times with prices from £2000, £2500 and now £2800.
At this point I am unsure what would be a realistic price for this car. My gut says £2200. What do you think?
My main concern at this point is buying a car with 65K miles and an unknown service history. What else should I look for?
(I have looked at the buyers guide, but I am limited on my technical expertise).
