Was fun but have to move on.........
Only had my GTV for about 8 months and it is a nice car. Belts, clutch, thermostat, oil and filter change, plugs, air filter, rear suspension, brakes......all done.
However I do 130 miles a day to and from work so needed something a bit more comfortable and a bit better on fuel.
So I traded the GTV for a fuel of Satan burning 147 Ti 1.9JTDm. Lovely facelift model with more toys than I need, but so bloody comfortable and quick. On the move it doesn't feel or sound like a diesel which is good !!!
Anyway....thanks for the help you guys have given with my questions and I hope some of my 12 years of Alfa "wisdom" has help some people out.
I will of course probably be found in the 147 Lounge
