Wow, thanks for the replies guys. You have given me a very balanced and helpful perspective
I am in a bit of an Alfa dilemma. I love and adore my 156 V6, its one of the most satisfying and complete cars I have had the honour to own.
But last year along came my Guilietta 2.0 jtdm and left me cold and broken hearted at what Alfa is becoming.
There is an old saying:
"They don't make them like they used to"
How apt that has become for Alfa Romeo.
So with that in mind if I won't be happy with new, why not turn to something older?
I simply can not live without a Busso soundtrack, I've tried the diesel route numerous times and it doesn't cut it for me.
A 3.0 V6 24v GTV in nero black is becoming more and more tempting to replace the 156 until the G goes back and a nice Jaguar XF sits in its place. Then the GTV will be my jewel to keep.
Just can't believe how quickly the numbers of them for sale has diminished so quickly though???
Last year there were hundreds of GTV's to choose from, now just a handful..... Thanks for the input guys
