Moon on a stick with a touch of raspberry..
I dont think people are expecting too much... look if you think about it. you do have to be a a slight massochist to get involved with Alfas.. I've loved them for years the early alfa sud and Lacias Beta spiders..
But be honest, 99% of these cars are not good to live with, emotionally yes..financially !!! you most probably think with your heart rather than your head when purchasing. (come on all of you admit it) and in the world of 6-8 a gallon, reliability issues, service costs and insurances, scarce parts your asking a lot.. the people buying these £500-£1000 cars dont honestly know what theyre letting themselves in for and i think within a few months they'll be back on here at £500 again or scrap
Im suprised anyone buys one,(calm down I just discussing) I consider most of the cars on ebay overpriced (sorry) for what your getting yourself into compared to other european and japanse cars. be honest now...(yes there are horror stories but...)
Best mate has a mito...(having and had for last 2 years a nightmare)
The V6 is an awesome car, along with the spider..I believe these will become collectors cars resonable mileage and excellent condition with impeccable service will be the pre requisite though
High mileage may be ok but how in another 5-10 years where will they be. Weekend cars is where 99% of these cars are heading and we all know that.
What am i looking for in an alfa... to start off with a bargain gotta be the right car at the right price ( I have cash waiting and burning a hole)
Coupe or Spider
Red or Silver
Red or black interior.
FSH and all the work done. I dont mind doing stuff as long as this is reflected in the price
I honestly believe most of the mid priced cars that are on ebay are most probably over priced by £500-£1000, I honestly think that because people have invested so much (love) and money in them they are expecting a return not what theyre actually worth.
I've been looking for 8 weeks....a couple of alfas have sold I mean a couple the rest still there today. even the auction cars starting at £1500...no bids.
V6 3.0 been a couple never met reserve one from scotlands been on 5 times still cant reach £1700?
Ok so rant over... I'm looking for a mint car... have money to spend but i'll wait until a bargin comes up or someone wants to do a deal and take my cash..its a buyers market...summer might improve the spider not sure on the coupes tho..
