Re: want a gtv
I'm just trading mine in so no axe to grind,
Check the panel gaps and paint matches they are B**$£rs to get right after a prang, I should know. The obvious advice is full Alfa history, check that all the belts have been changed around the £45,000 mile mark no later. Its not so much the main belt but a small er belt, which I have heard can come off and foul the main belt causing severe damage I've heard some horror stories re the 2.0L and really looked after mine. Ensure the electrics work properly, particularly the windows as it is a frameless door and the seals are sometimes poor. The engines are bullet proof but check the oil for 'cream' on the cap. The rear bushes are prone to wear and need to be looked ar carefully as neglect can result in more serious promlems. Oh, and they eat brakes (but that's probably just me). Otherwise they are sex on a stick and I have loved every second of mine.
Hope that helps I'm afraid I'm no expert its just my experience of ownership.
